Thank you to the families who attended the Saint Michael’s day service on Sunday 26th September. It was lovely to see the school and church celebrating together.
On Wednesday 29th, the actual day of Michaelmas, the children showed their various skills. Some classes drew pictures of Saint Michael, some wrote prayers whilst others recalled the story of Saint Michael.
The children discussed the significance of St Michael and Michaelmas. Michaelmas is at a time of year that ushers in darker nights and the colder days begin, the edge into winter. Children discussed the celebration of Michaelmas being associated with encouraging protection during these dark months.
