Lion King Roaring Success!
‘Awesome’, ‘Amazing’, ‘So Proud’ – just some of the words used by parents to describe the Year 5/6 end of term production of the Lion King.
Superb performances from; proud lions, mischievous hyenas, a put-upon hornbill, joking meerkat, lovable warthog and cheeky baboons all splendidly supported by stampeding elephants, zebras, giraffes, gazelles, cheetahs and all held together with clear narration and passionate singing.
A big thank you to all staff supporting the children with their acting, singing, choreography and for the magnificent costumes.
Could we put on a full concert in a few weeks?
“76 trombones led the big parade!” (Well perhaps not quite that many!)
We had a real treat in school when King Edward VI Grammar School brought some of their musicians along to lead workshops for Y5/6 and then perform in front of the school.
The children enjoyed singing and playing a range of percussion instruments, but the highlight was probably the chance to play a plastic trombone!
“And they oompahed up and down the square” (or Hall in our case!)
Year 6, alongside hundreds of other Y6 children, attended the annual Church Schools’ Festival held at the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral. The Festival is designed as a culmination for those children who have ‘grown up’ at a church school and are about to move onto secondary education.
Our children had the chance to tour the Cathedral and join in workshop activities before concluding with a shared act of worship. Each school paraded their school’s banner and received a memorial candle to bring home.
We hope the children will long remember the day as just part of their final year’s celebrations with us.
“Here’s to the nights that turned into morning with the friends that turned into family.”
Just had to share this – how amazing are our children!
Following a fairly stressful week of KS2 SATs, a group of Year 6s presented Mr Fox with a giant seasons picture (made up of 12 A3 sheets!) they had created in their ‘golden time’ and spare moments.
Each quarter shows a season, but also contains a message as you rotate the picture around.
Spring: “Bloom where you are planted.”
Summer: “Here’s to the nights that turned into morning with the friends that turned into family.”
Autumn: “I loved autumn, the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there just for the beauty of it.”
Winter: “Cold days – Warm hearts.”
Just how amazing are our children to even think of creating this on their own (with a special thank you to Amelie, Tia, Evie, Evie, Charlotte & Henry).
Year 3 and Year 4 had a great day out at the Collection in Lincoln learning all things Saxon as part of their history topic.
The children had the opportunity to make shields and bead necklaces, try spinning and an archaeological dig, dress up in costume and conduct an autopsy – that’s not something you do every day!
A great place for a day out and a fun time had by all.
A group of children from Y3/4 had the opportunity to try the paralympic sport of New Age Curling at Cordeaux Academy competing against other local schools. The children had a great time, behaved impeccably and finished third!
Well done all!
Disability Sport Awareness Day
Year 5 had the wonderful opportunity to try out a range of disability sports at the Meridian Centre whilst meeting local coaches and participants. The children have previously played the disability sports of Boccia, Goalball and New Age Curling at school, but they were able to try Wheelchair Basketball, Walking/Blind Football, Archery and Table Cricket at this event especially laid on to raise awareness of disability in Louth.
The children had a fantastic time with our good friend Scott (known as ‘Wheels’ to all) who has cerebral palsy, but still enjoys cricket and wheelchair basketball. ‘Wheels’ introduced each of the activities to them and shared information about disability and how it impacts on his life.
St. Michael’s Lets Talent Shine!
We had a super night at school for our ‘Let It Shine’ Talent Variety Show! We had marvellous performances by the children with singing, dancing, instrumentalists and even comedy (and then there was the Staff act..!)
Well done to Eloise & Martha, ‘The Matilda Twins’, who won on the night and a big thank you to everyone who auditioned and helped out – lots of fun and we raised £330 for the School Fund too!
As for the Staff, ‘Grease is the Word!’
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 the icing on the cake!
Well done to all!
A big WELL DONE to our Year 4 Basketball Squad who entered a four school / twelve team tournament at Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College and emerged victorious finishing first and second.
