St Michael's School Blog

Y1: Thursday & Friday

This will be our last blog before the ‘Easter break’, for whatever this Easter holiday of 2020 would mean for us at this point in time – with people in ‘lockdown’ and keeping their social distance.  ‘They’ say this is now our ‘new normal’, but it certainly does not feel ‘normal’ just yet… and let us hope that it does not stay ‘normal’ for long!

Let us all continue to pray that the situation improves very soon and may there be a cure for this dreaded disease round the corner.

As a staff, we will continue to hold all of our pupils and parents in our thoughts and prayers.

Schools continue to be shut indefinitely and therefore we will only partially reopen on the 20th April – for vulnerable children and critical worker’s children.  However, please remember the key message:  We have a provision at school, however, for the safety of everyone involved, please keep your children at home if at all possible.

The setting of home learning will resume the 20th April.

Continue to read very day.  (Unfortunately the reading eggs was only a promotion for the month of March, to promote world book day, so the login you have will no longer work.)

If you don’t have any more books to read at home,  then try listening to a story. Audible have launched free audio books for children whilst schools are closed.

If you enjoy the David Walliams’ books, you can listen to his free audio story by clicking on this link:

weekly Spellings

The focus this week is: Words ending with f and s, spelt with ‘ff’ and ‘ss’
