It was great to see so many parents come to parent evening last night. As well as being able to talk to the teachers, parents were also able to see their child’s books and receive their curricular targets after analysis of our term 1 assessments. These targets will also be in each child’s learning journal for them to refer to in lessons, they should also be able to refer to them and discuss them whilst doing their homework. Please do talk to your children about their targets and their progress towards meeting them. As has been the custom for some time now, each child will have a half term homework/activity to complete which they can access via the school website under the homework tab on the home page. Please do support your child to complete this– I look forward to seeing all their hard work when we return in term 2.
We had a lovely harvest festival with a liturgy in the infants and an amazing junior assembly led by St Pauls class (year 6). Thank you so much for the generous contributions of food which we have donated to the “ Caring Hands” charity.
Under the guidance of Mrs Stanczyk, our Eco Schools lead ,we are again participating in WOW– Walk on Wednesdays– well done to all of those children and their parents who have made a special effort to walk or “Park and Stride”. We have a competition running to create a road safety poster, a letter has already gone home with the children about this!
On Wednesday afternoon we had a visit from Ms Pauline Maddison who is the Assistant director of School Effectiveness and Inclusion from Medway LA. She had never been to St Michael’s before. I gave her a tour of the school and she was most impressed with the liveliness of our learning environment and the behaviour of our children. So well done everyone– I was very proud.
Have a safe and happy half term
Mrs Katharine Sexton
