A huge welcome to our new children in Reception and welcome back to all our existing pupils. We were blessed with amazing weather throughout the holidays, which I’m sure has helped energise the children so that they are ready for another exciting year at St Michael’s.
Our new Reception children are currently in school during the morning and then go home after they’ve eaten their lunch. They will be starting school full-time on Monday 10th September.
We started this term with our book week. Children and staff engaged in various activities throughout the week promoting the huge benefits of reading. An after school ‘bedtime story’ session went extremely well, with children returning in their pyjamas and listening to staff reading stories to them, followed by cocoa and marshmallows. The week culminated in a non-uniform day with the whole school community dressing up as their favourite book character.

As I write this newsletter it is pouring with rain, last weekend we had a heatwave and a few weeks ago we had snow, who knows what we can expect next week – how apt that this week is our geography week!
