We are working hard to try and support our community as much as possible at this unprecedented time. This section of the website will be updated with work for the week, website ideas and anything we think will help at home.
We have created a YouTube channel for St. Michael’s which allows us to upload videos. The staff have started to read stories each night for the children. Mr Houghton has also recorded some Maths videos for the children.
We are also sending out daily messages on our Class Dojo page. If you have not registered please download the free app and register. If you can’t do this get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Daily Essentials list below shows what we would like children to do each day. Again, this is a guide as we know how hard it is for parents at this time.
We will publish a weekly Grammar lesson for each year group. The timetable is below.
We will publish a Maths lesson for the children to use. The timetable for the different year groups is below.
We have created individual class pages with all the work we have set for the children. This includes the work the teachers send home every Monday and will have the daily Maths Quiz on.

Although we might all be confined to our homes, and doing #geographyathome, we are asking young people to explore their wider geographical horizons by providing entries to our Young Geographer of the Year competition and explore the geography of: ‘The world beyond my window’We are interested in entries that explore the human and physical geography of places that exist beyond a young person’s window, be it locally or further afield. We want to know how young people’s lives are connected to and influenced by these places – be the connections physical, digital or emotional. We also want to understand how geographical processes in the physical and human worlds have created these places and might be changing them.The deadline for receipt of all entries is Tuesday 30 June 2020 at 5.00pm.Find out more information about what you need to do to enter here;https://www.rgs.org/schools/competitions/young-geographer-of-the-year/2020-competition/
Light A Candle and the Lord’s Prayer
Each Thursday at 7.50pm, we will be lighting a candle and say the Lord’s Prayer. We thought this would bring us together as a community allowing us time to prayer followed by celebrating our key workers with the 8pm clap.
