What’s on at Middleton Primary
Last week 12 pupils had a fun day out at the Tennis Centre. Mark Dennison ,from BBC Radio Nottingham, interviewed some of them. Here is the Podcast:
The Nottingham High School Festival took place last week and our cricket team won all their matches. The boys displayed amazing skills and unity in adversity during some difficult games. Well done! You are Champions!
Well done Year 1 and 2 for your amazing singing and instrument playing. We all had a fantastic time raising money for our sister school in Togo. A big thank you to Miss Need for helping us organise this fantastic event.
The children have been learning about how to stay safe in the sun with the 5 s – slip, slop, slap, sunglasses and shade. We have designed posters to put around the school. Have you spotted one yet?
We were so lucky to have the chicks come to visit us in 2H. The children enjoyed holding the chicks gently. They were surprised by how light they were and how their claws were not sharp (even though they looked it).
The video of our trip to China is now on our YouTube channel. Just type Middleton Primary School trip China or follow the link below:
They’ve done it again! For two years in a row now, our Middleton Table Tennis team has been crowned Champions. Competing against 10 other schools, they managed to win all their matches. They displayed tremendous skills and professional concentration during the tournament. Well done!
A “poisson d’avril” ( April’s Fish) is a joke made on April 1st. In France, children try to stick a fish picture on their friends’ back. When the joke is discovered, they shout “poisson d’avril !”. We loved it and we even put some fishes on teachers’ backs.
Yesterday Year 5 discovered the website Language Angels and played some revision games. They absolutely loved it.
As part of our science curriculum, the children in Year 6 were invited to an event at Wollaton Hall called ‘After Dinner Nap – Food and Sleep’. The children took part in two workshops: one with a professor from the University of Nottingham based on the world’s most common bird, the chicken; the other, a tour of Wollaton Hall with its curator, looking at the many species of animals on display and learning about their sleep patterns. We learnt many fascinating facts about animals and birds of all kinds and it proved to be a highly interesting and educational experience. The museum are hoping to set up a Citizen’s Science research project into sleep as a result of this event.
On Tuesday 27th February, Year 3 went to the Lakeside Arts Centre to explore what life was like as a Viking. The children had opportunities to create different types of jewellery and developed Viking Poetry with a young poet Laureate from Nottingham called Georgina Wilding.
The children also had time to visit the exhibition where they engaged with the information and played games as well as dressing up as a Viking person.
