Spellings is also a compulsory piece of homework each week.
Spellings will be given on a Monday in your child's learning journal and should be practiced at home every night for 10 minutes ready for their spelling test every Friday.
Your child should be reading daily and having their learning journal signed at home when they have read to you. Your child will receive 2 house points per day they have their journal signed plus an extra 5 if they had their journal signed every night!

As a Catholic School, we attach the greatest importance to Collective Worship in the life of our school. We give our children opportunities to grow in faith, love and compassion to Jesus by reflecting the true meanings of Jesus' words.
This term our Collective Worship will be based on knowing the God who helps us to be wise. We will be covering a variety of topics including: thank you prayers, wise words, harvest gifts and people who keep us safe.
We will also be celebrating the Harvest festival and Saint Michael's Day.
St Philip Class Assembly - Wednesday 22nd September 2021
In our class assembly we celebrated the arc-angel St Michael who is also our school saint.
The children performed a role play all about the battle between St Michael and the 7 headed dragon (who was the devil in disguise). The children also sang a song about how brave St Michael was and how he was the defender of Heaven and protects us all. Please see below the prayer we said at the end of our assembly to say a special thank you to God and St Michael for always protecting us from harm.
We pray to you St Michael
That you will protect us from harm and keep us safe.
We will do our best to be more like you and work hard to be brave and do the right thing.
We give thanks for your bravery in God's name
It was lovely to see all the parents joining us for our class assembly and being able to see their child perform.

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.
