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.
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.
A consistent focus should be given to times tables. The children in year 6 should be fluent in all times tables up to 12 and able to apply, recall and use the inverse (division) with ease. Please ensure you are supporting your child in achieving this.

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.
If you would like to contact 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.
If your message is urgent then please do contact the school office to arrange a return phone call or an appointment.
St Paul's Class Assembly
St Paul's Class did an amazing job in their class assembly.
The theme for this assembly was Justice in God's Kingdom.
The children linked their talents with ways that they can support the world and allow God's Kingdom to grow and flourish.
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 St Michael's Community as we return to school at the beginning of this new academic year.

Week 3: Celebrating wisdom and learning from it.
