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 celebrating the life of St Joseph and asking Him for help, encourage us to always do the right things just like he did. We will be writing our own special prayers to St Joseph and reflect our own lives to be like Him.
Also we will be celebrating the Feast of two great Saints Paul and Peter. In our lessons we will be reflecting their lives and thinking what can we learn from them today.
Week 1: Making good choices and doing the right thing. Having Moral courage
Week 2: God's Kingdom grows from small to big, everyone is welcome to join
Mark 4:26-34 (Parable of the Kingdom of Heaven)
Week 3: St Joseph the worker (20th June - Father's Day)
Week 4: St Peter and St Paul's Feast Celebrations (29th June)
After Jesus returned to heaven, Peter made it his mission to bring the Good News about Jesus to people in many places around the world.
Week 5: God is always there helping those in need.
Week 6: Standing up for what is right.
Our PE day is Thursday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kits in school on a Thursday. If they come home for washing, please make sure they are returned at the beginning of the next week.
There will be interventions on a daily basis. These will be available to support each child in their learning. For your child to get the most out of their interventions, please arrive promptly at school for 8:30.
Please see jotter page (linked below) for our termly "Dip and Do's"
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. These spellings should be practiced by writing them into sentences, so the children understand the meaning of each word.
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! Once the book has been finished, the children will have the opportunity to complete a quiz based on the book and then change it for another of their choice related to their given reading range.
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.

Please write a comment in your child's learning journal- these are checked daily and any non-urgent messages will be replied to.
