What we’ve been up to…
On Thursday, Mrs Freely, Mrs Need, Mrs Harne and Mrs Rick took 28 children from the Middleton School Choir to the Birmingham Resorts World Arena for Young Voices 2019. Over 6500 children joined together to create the world’s BIGGEST school choir. It was an absolutely incredible experience for adults and children alike and a privilege to have been able to be a part of something so special.
Stars including Beau Dermott ( a Britain’s Got Talent golden buzzer act), Sharlene Hector ( a singer/songwriter who has been part of Basement Jaxx) and Tony Hadley, the lead singer of Spandau Ballet also joined us. Meeting Tony Hadley was a particular highlight for the Teachers!
Mrs Freely would like to thank all of the children who took part n the concert for all their hard work over the last few months and also a huge thank you to the parents who were able to support us by coming along to the concert.
It was a night we will never forget and we cannot wait to see what next year brings!
Please check our video in our Videos page or on our YouTube Channel.
Well done to all of our cross country runners who competed in a 1.5km race at Wollaton Park this week. Despite the muddy and wet conditions, the children performed excellently! Our boys’ team came in first place and all left with a gold medal! Huge congratulations go to Oliver Jakubiak who finished first overall and to George Sinski who finished second. What a fantastic achievement!
Our annual Middleton’s Talent Show took place on the last day of the last term of 2018.
The show is open to all the children and is designed to showcase all type of talents.
It may be that the children attend dance classes out of school, learn to play an instrument in their own time, just enjoy singing in the shower or even like to tell “Knock Knock” jokes.
This special event gives these children the opportunity to bring their talents into school and present them to the rest of their fellow pupils.
The 2018 show was full of talented pupils who showcased acrobatics, magic tricks, football skills, musical prowess.
