A busy March at Middleton Primary School

It has been a busy half term at Middleton Primary School with lots of whole school activities.

For Mother’s Day, the children had the opportunity to invite their Mums or carers in to school to enjoy a roast dinner with them. Over 150 adults and children enjoyed their roast dinners in our halls and the feedback was wonderful, so thank you to Diane and her kitchen team.

One mother sent this lovely message in:

“Hey! I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the Mother’s Day dinner! Just amazing. I don’t know of any other school who has made this kind of effort. Middleton Primary is an amazing school.”

Year 2 children have been visiting the elderly at Gascoigne House – they have now started writing letters to each other as pen pals.

That wasn’t all the fun to be had this month, the whole school also enjoyed a fun filled Comic Relief at the staff’s expense.

To raise money, the school council decided that they would set up a wet sponge throwing event. In exchange for their £2 donation to Comic Relief, the children revelled in the opportunity to throw wet sponges at different staff members, including Headteacher, Sam Williams.

It was all for such a fantastic cause and lots of money was raised. Thank you to all parents, and staff for their contributions.
