Lent Matthew 4:1-11
We listened to the story of Jesus in the desert for 40 nights and 40 days and reflected on how lent is a time where we give up something that might tempt us to remember Jesus' strength whilst not giving in to temptation. We decorated our own lentern promise tree with our own lent promises.
Saint Philip Assembly theme: The Lost Sheep
Scripture reading: Matthew 18: 10-14
In our year group assembly the children reflected upon the deeper meaning behind the story of the Lost Sheep and that God made everyone on the Earth and each person is important to him. Just one person who has faith in God is more important than 100 people who do not have faith.
Saint Matthew Assembly theme: The Poor Widow's Gift
Scripture reading: Mark 12:41-44
In our year group assembly the children reflected upon what it means to offer all that you have like the poor, old lady rather than only offering some of what you have like the rich men in the temple. We prayed a promise prayer to offer all our love and generosity to others and to the Lord.
Palm Sunday and Holy Week Matthew 4:1-11
We made our own celebration and welcome palm leaves to wave in Jesus as we remember the very special time of Holy Week leading up to Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
Easter Gardens Matthew 26-27, Matthew 28:1-10
We all made our Easter garden plant pots where each part represented an important part of the Easter story. The flower and the grass seeds represent new life and Jesus rising. We inserted our own home made caves to be the tomb where Jesus' body laid to rest and we collected stones to represent the tomb that rolled away when Jesus was resurrected. We also made our own crosses to show Jesus' sacrifice and dying for our sins. Some of us even made angels to show the messengers from the Lord, who spoke to Mary and her friends to tell them that Jesus was alive!

Jotter Learning Platform
At St Michael’s we subscribe to Jotter; the learning platform designed with primary schools in mind. Children are growing up in a fast-changing online world and we strive to ensure that they gain the essential skills both within and beyond school. Teachers will keep you up-to-date with your child’s learning. Your child will be able to download and upload work and complete tasks. There will be pages where much of what you see has been created by the children themselves. This is their chance to shine as they write content and collaborate on research.
Jotter gives children the opportunity to explore concepts such as wikis and blogs in a safe environment. We hope you enjoy using Jotter as much as we do. To log in please type in your child’s username and password. To obtain this information please speak to your class teacher.
