What’s on at Middleton Primary

RRSA + School Council: New School Improvement Plan

RRSA and School Council have been working hard to produce their own School Improvement Plan and here it is:
Middleton Primary and Nursery School
School Improvement Plan 2018-19

Overall

Make sure that the Rights Respecting School Award is part of everyone’s education at Middleton and try to achieve the Gold award again.

Leadership

Make sure that the adults who help run the school (staff and governors) are working together to do the best they can for everyone at Middleton.

Keep the school running as normally as we can during the building works, and be ready for having an extra class start each year.

Teaching and learning

Teachers will try to help us to get even better at Maths and Writing. We will be given more time to do longer pieces of Writing by ourselves.

When we find things harder in Reading, Writing and Maths, teachers will try to give us extra help so we can catch up.

Into the Forest with Year 2

Lots of our work this term has been based on the theme of Into the Forest. We have enjoyed learning about the tales of Robin Hood and other forest related stories. We visited Sherwood Forest on a beautiful autumn day where we met Maid Marion. We have learnt how to use a bow and arrow in our PE lessons. We finished the topic with an amazing dress up day and built castles with special features to keep the enemy out.

Chicks in 2H

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).

Champions!

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!
