At last, some lovely sunshine after a pretty dismal Easter break as far as the weather has been concerned. The children have all returned refreshed and ready for the “ big push” ahead that always comes in the summer terms– hard work but lots of fun!!!
Just before we broke up for Easter we had a few events which were in the KM over the holidays; our Read with Mother and Science week events. The other brilliant thrill for St Michael’s was our winning of the Dance Fusion competition facilitated by Greenacre Sports Partnership. Our dance team and routine was fantastic– I was quite moved to tears when I watched our performance along with everyone else from our school at the competition. We were AMAZING!!, especially as last year we were second. But this year we absolutely “ smashed it” Well done to all involved especially the two Miss Greens with their wonderful choreography. See this weeks KM for further coverage of the event– we’re in the local press again!!
This Wednesday we took part in an event held at Buckmore Park called “Dare to be Different” This event has been organised by the governing body of UK Motorsport. It is designed to “drive” female talent, inspiring the next generation to challenge preconceptions and prejudices in the world of motorsport and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Our Y6 girls who went along had a marvellous day go karting, learning about F1, sports journalism and engineering based activities. This is a great opportunity for our girls, very memorable and of course encourages them to think that all careers and life paths are open to them regardless of their gender. My thanks to Miss Ahern our science lead and great supporter of STEM who accompanied them for the day. The girls came back really “buzzing”
The children in Early Years had a great day on Wednesday at Kent Life. The weather was glorious– they had a marvellous time with the animals getting back to nature– the first of many of our end of year trips!!
Please check the website for next years term dates for planning holidays etc.
Enjoy the spring sunshine Mrs Kathy Sexton
