Don’t forget Mothering Sunday!

Don’t forget Mothering Sunday! Children in Foundation Stage were ready with fantastic portraits of their mums as they welcomed them into school for an early Mother’s Day Tea Party! Alongside the fabulous paintings, the children sang songs and shared home-made cakes, made especially for the occasion!

Caring & Sharing

Caring & Sharing Did you know the motto of the school Prince George will be attending in the autumn is ‘Be Kind’? During our Easter Egg Hunt we were delighted to spot one of our youngest children being just that! Young Harland had managed to find lots of eggs all by himself, but noticed Harry had none. Without thinking or being asked, Harland walked over to Harry and gave the eggs he had found to him! Well done Harland – we are proud of you! Enjoy your big ‘Golden Egg’!

TAG Rugby Fair Play!

TAG Rugby Fair Play! Our Year 5 TAG Rugby teams had ‘fun in the spring sun’ at the local schools tournament at London Road. Nursing injuries, and with no substitutes, they played on under strength and ‘ran their socks off’ against largely Y6 opposition. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they had limited success, but the organisers awarded them the ‘Best Sporting Team’ trophy for not giving up! Well done – proud of you all!

County Champs!

County Champs! Massive congratulations to our Y3/4 Swimming Squad who won the County Finals as part of the Lincolnshire School Games and to our Y5/6 Squad who came an excellent third in their age group! Our Y3/4s pushed St Andrew’s, Woodhall Spa into second place with Malcolm Sergent School, Stamford in third. Our Y5/6s were third behind the much larger schools of Horncastle Primary in second and winners Westgate Academy of Lincoln. We love swimming at St. Michael’s as it is great for health and fitness, builds confidence, raises self-esteem and is a valuable life-long skill. Becoming County Champions is

Snow fun!

“Do you want to build a (miniature) snowman?!” It may not have lasted long, but the snow was around just long enough for Foundation Stage to explore this strange cold white stuff for the first time at school!

Those were the days…

Those were the days… Y5/6 spent a day at Wilderspin in Barton where they recreated what it was like to be a child at school in Victorian times. The children experienced class object lessons, playground drill, but had chance for some fun and games too! Getting into the spirit of the time, the children were divided into boys and girls, checked for clean fingernails, forced (if necessary) to sit up straight and writing left handed was not an option! For those who failed to conform, there was the appearance of the Dunce’s Cap and the cane! Then there was the

Prayer Spaces

A ‘Special Place’ To end a busy Term 1, we wanted to give our children the chance to stop for a moment and reflect on the things they care about or are concerning them. Winnie-the-Pooh had a ‘Thoughtful Spot’ to go to and we turned the Music Room into a ‘Prayer Space’ for the week. All of our children had the opportunity to explore any or all of the eight activities designed to help them ‘Be Still’. Many wrote a ‘Thank You’ on a leaf for our ‘Friendship Tree’ and all contributed to a giant ‘Friendship Flower’. Some used the
