Our Bedtime Stories initiative for children in Grasshoppers, Bluebirds, Owls, Ladybirds, Rabbits and Foxes kicked off with a bang. The staff at Midfield wanted to share their love for reading with the children. Thank you to parents and children who braved the dark to attend our Bedtime Stories. We loved your enthusiasm and we really enjoyed sharing some of our favourite books with you in front of a fire - albeit a virtual one! Mrs Viljoen is hoping to improve her hot chocolate making skills in time for the next time bedtime stories event!

On Sunday 26th September (in true Midfield style), staff, parents, carers and children descended upon Welling Football Stadium to support the celebrities who were playing football to raise money for our school. Jake Wood from EastEnders captained the Blue Team, which Mr Le Conte and Miss Dalton were a part of. Dan Osborne, well known for his role in Towie, captained the Red Team. Mr Frost was a part of the Red Team and, who we are proud to say, scored a goal for his team. Unfortunately for the Red Team, the second goal was disallowed. It is worth mentioning that the Red Team lost 5-6!
We even featured in the Bromley Times:

The choir from Midfield Primary School in Orpington did their bit in a Christmas knit for Text Santa this morning. The pupils performed stunning renditions of Christmas classics jingle Bells and We Three Kings in the Good Morning Britain studio this morning!

Well done Mrs Eede and the Midfield Choir!
Midfield joined many organisations and schools from across the UK to celebrate Empty Classroom Day on Friday 19th June. It was great fun and exhausting, but lots of learning took place! Owls made patterns by printing it on black sugar paper using paint and an okra vegetable cut in half. We also made a 3D-rocket using card and have started with our igloo sculpture using milk bottles. Next we learned more about the Caribbean. We imagined that we were on a pirate ship visiting a Caribbean island. We played with boats, dug in sand searching for treasure, dressed up as pirates, made shell rubbings and found out which materials sank or floated. Then we wrote adjectives to describe the water, sand, boats and weather. Foxes drew pictures of the battle of Hasting on the playground using chalk while all of this action was taking place. In the afternoon we had Sports Day Practice.
Owls, Ladybirds. Oaks and Acorns have been discovering our new forest school site. We have investigating the wildlife and found new areas to make camps and dens. Everyone is looking forward in developing this area further.
