A huge thank you to all our families for your amazing generosity this harvest. We had a lovely celebration this morning and were delighted to be joined by Rev Wendy and Nick Russell from St Saviours Church. Wendy told us all about a fearless female dairy farmer from Ireland, and Nick dazzled us with his magic tricks and helped us to think about the importance of being kind. It was a lovely celebration and our next job will be to bag up your donations and deliver them to our pensioner friends on the estate. Well done everyone
Year 4 have had a fantastic day in Greenwich on a mudlarking workshop with the Thames Explorers. There were some really exciting finds which included bones, pipes, tools and ceramics. In a thrilling find, Theo came across a small dice which was taken away to the Museum of London to be verified. The guide explained that soldiers would make small dice out of bone because gambling was banned and that way they could sneak them into their pockets. Such a fun day!
Year 3 Tulane have been building models to demonstrate what friendship means to them, and then presenting their ideas to the class. Dance together, eat together, play together, and apparently go to the moon dressed as pirates holding bananas together. (There is no such thing as a wrong answer!)
Some of our after-school clubs from today including cricket, football, active kids, sewing and ceramics
We received exciting news this afternoon when we were told that we have officially become an IQM Centre of Excellence. Miss Hogger and Miss Evans spent last year working on the Inclusion Qualitymark application with great support from the children, staff team, governors, parents/carers and local community partners. On our verification day back in the summer term, we passed with flying colours achieving a Grade 1 in every area. This special achievement recognises everything that we do to support and include our diverse and vibrant community. As the first line of the award states… “Middle Park Primary School is at the heart of a community with community in its heart.” We are very proud and a huge well done to everyone.
MIDDLE PARK FAME ACADEMY: In other exciting news – for any fans of the new crime series on BBC1 ‘Strike’ – look out in November for this little actress who will be featuring. You can’t miss that giant smile – (Although we don’t think she’ll be smiling much on screen if the storyline is anything to go by!) Well done little-legs
