Science Day - 13/03/17

 

As part of British Science Week, we had a whole school science day. We were very lucky to have a visit from a scientist from the Open University who started our day with a bang (quite literally)! Our visitor demonstrated atomospheric pressure to us by inflating a balloon inside a bottle, he also made colourful 'elephant toothpaste' that came foaming out of the top of bottles and he demonstrated how to make a plastic bottle shrink without melting it with a flame!

 

As part of Science Day, we used our DT skills to make a model and then applied our enquiry skills to lead an investigation to test our models. Across the school we had: aeroplanes, boats, Roman Catapults and eco-friendly shoes. We tested our models for their intended purpose and recorded our findings.

MK50 Exhibition

 

Children at Middleton have been celebrating the 50th birthday of Milton Keynes. We held an exhibition to showcase all the wonderful ways the children have been learning about the history of Milton Keynes. The Exhibition displayed pictures, maps and newspapers to show the history of the town as well as some examples of children's work, including concrete cows made by Year 2 which were decorated to show different aspects of Milton Keynes. The exhibition was open to parents and Governors and we had a special guest (Ann-Marie Newman) who was voted one of the top 50 most influential people of Milton Keynes! The exhibition ended with our Year 3/4 children performing a special 'happy birthday Milton Keynes' song and a group of year 5's who composed and performed a song with trumpets.

Year 5 Bletchley Park Visit

 

Year 5 went to Bletchley Park to learn more about Bletchley's historical and local involvement in the war. They were able to have a go at breaking codes, using the Morse code, Caesar wheels and pig-pen codes. They were also able to explore the mansion and huts in which codes from the Bombe Machine were broken and explore Alan Turing's hut where many secret messages were deciphered.

Remembrance Day 11th November 2016

 

On Friday 11th November the whole school gathered together for a Remembrance Service just before 11am. Leading up to this event each child created a wooden spoon poppy that was planted by the School Council on the grass. Parents, families, friends and governors joined us for a special Remembrance Service where children from Year 5 and 6 read poems that they had written and Year 4 sang a song in french. Then, we had our 2 minute silence that all of the children so respectfully joined in with. Our service concluded with Harry from Year 5 playing part of 'The Last Post' on his trumpet. 

Many thanks to all of the children for their hard work leading up to this event and for their outstanding behaviour and the respect they showed during the service. 

We would also like to thank all the parents, families, friends and governors that came along to support us with this event. 

Year 5 Space Day 2016

Children and staff in Year 5 got into cosmic groove this half term with a hook to get everyone excited by space. The space day involved lots of hands on fun and learning. We made model solar systems when teams of children created DIY planets and underwent astronaut training to see if we could become space explorers of the future. Oh, and we all got dressed up too!

Parent, staff and governor 10K run at Silverstone

On Wednesday 6th May a team of 12 parents, staff and governors went to the Silverstone 10K run. We weren't quite sure what to expect as this was the first time Middleton have entered a team into the annual race. When we arrived it was cold, raining and very busy. Finding out that we were going to be running amongst 900 other people was exciting but did create a slightly nervous atmosphere. The race started at 7.30pm and we ran in heavy rain and wind. However, our Middleton team pulled through and all 12 of our team members finished the race in under an hour. Everyone finished with a smile and community spirit was at a high.

 

We came 5th out of 15 other schools that entered- very good for our first attempt!

 

Team Middleton were very enthused and we will definitely be doing it again next year! Get your running trainers on everyone...

Frosts Wheelbarrow Competition! Saturday 18th April

 

To celebrate National Gardening Week, Middleton children have taken part in a local competition. The children needed to design something to go into a wheelbarrow. There were lots of fantastic entries! Our final design looked fantastic and Miss Baxter took it to Frosts garden centre for it to be judged by Alan Titchmarsh. The vote is also open to the public so go and vote for Middleton if you can!!

We had a very exciting start to Book Week when Mr Wooton arrived in assembly with a very old treasure chest!  Who did it belong to?  Where had it come from?  What was inside?  We had lots of fun writing about some of our ideas to answer these questions.  All will be revealed later in the week!
