What we’ve been up to…
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.
Just before the new academic year began, we were successfully re-accredited with the International Schools Award for a further three years until 2021. This is a fantastic accolade for the school and recognition of how celebrating diversity and links with the wider world are fundamental to Middleton’s ethos. Our school was invited to attend the national award ceremony in London. The event took place in the Houses of Parliament and included a speech from Damian Hinds MP, the Secretary of State for Education, who extolled the virtues of schools such as Middleton for the work they do in encouraging children to have a global perspective.
Recently, our Year 4 children created a fantastic piece of Winter artwork under the guidance and expertise of an artist. We were so excited and proud to see this artwork on display, recently, at the Bramcote Lane Christmas Lights Switch on!
