This month children have been very CreARTive! Both the Breakfast Club and The Hive have enjoyed a spot of weaving – we are currently weaving a picture of ourselves. We strutted our super cool dance moves on the dance floor and competed in our very own Strictly Come Dancing spectacle. Competition mania hasn’t stopped there; the children have been challenging each other to see how many times they can bounce a ping pong ball on their bat without dropping it. A massive well done to Ethan in the Breakfast Club who has managed to bounce the ball an outstanding 1,062 times, awesome!

We’ve had lots of fun designing our new wall display. This has involved creating a striking rainbow using rolls of coloured crepe paper, and making shiny pictures using a variety of different coloured glitter and sequins. We have traced our faces onto acetate sheets which generated lots of laughter, and mum’s the word as children have been busy designing pictures on mugs in preparation for Mother’s Day. They used glass pens to draw their designs before we baked them in the oven for half an hour, making their beautiful creations permanent.

The children have also had opportunities to create hearts and models out of clay, paint hearts for Pre-Prep’s special Valentines Assembly, make fruit kebabs and scrummy sausage rolls twice for our tea, and if that wasn’t enough, we are currently having a go at growing our very own sugar crystals!

Once again, another busy, bustling month in The Hive with our little bees busily buzzing away crafting, playing, laughing and relaxing in the warmth and company of our friends.

Finally, The Breakfast club was delighted to meet the author Matt Dickinson as he joined us for a surprise breakfast on Friday 24th January before heading up to Prep to talk about his expedition to mount Everest.

Wishing you all a refreshing break!

  • My son began his journey at St Michael's last Friday in the Nursery class and, one week on, I have to write to say how impressed I am and how thrilled we are with our decision to send him to such an amazing school. The approach to settling them in has been perfect!

  • St Michael’s is a wonderful school. Fantastic teachers, a nurturing environment. It has suited our three children who are all very different in their academic and pastoral needs. Thank you.

    Year 6 Parent
  • St Michael's is a place where I can let my imagination run wild.

    Year 6 pupil
  • We were struck by the warmth and kindness of everyone we met; pupils as well as staff. We believe in giving our son the right start and instilling in him the joy of learning and satisfaction from achievement. We can see this happening at St Michael’s

    Prospective Parent
  • My daughter has had such a wonderful school life at St.Michael’s. We really couldn’t have asked for a better school for her in terms of academic life, extra-curricular activities and friendship groups. We still can’t believe how quickly the time has flown by and that she will soon be leaving!
