Leavers' Supper - Class of 2019

Thank you to all our families for joining us out on the lawn this evening. Children enjoyed sausage and chips with their friends, families and staff. The Kindergarten teachers read a beautiful poem and the children sang 'I'm a little graduate'. Sarah presented each child with a lovely card featuring them in a cap and gown. One family has seen all five children go through St. Michael's so we wish them well in the future too. Thank you to all the staff for the enormous effort behind the scenes. Please make sure you all keep in touch

Dentist Visits Kindergarten

A big thank you to Kim from Torrington Dental Practice for visiting Kindergarten this morning. Oral hygiene is such an important life skill. The children found out lots about how to to keep their teeth and gums healthy. We had lots of visual aids to talk about and the children really enjoyed using the electric toothbrush on the model gums/teeth.

Say Bees!

Bees are vitally important to our very existence. The children have shown a huge interest in bees saying "they go buzzzzz" and "Bees make honey".  All this week, children attending Forest School and Wild Hygge sessions, are finding out how a bee uses his 'pollen baskets' to collect pollen on his legs.  The children took part in a puppet show where the bee collected the pollen (powder paint) and took it back to the hive to produce honey for the winter.

Moo Music Festival Fun

Moo Music had the festival vibe this week with lights, thumping beats and a fun role play at the park. We even had a scrunchy, crunchy, foil sheet for 'sizzling our sausages'. The children really enjoyed this theme and of course the highlight is always the bubble machine!

Bug Blog!

We would like to say a massive thank you to Kim from Really Wild Learning for bringing in all these fantastic creatures. The children greeted Kim with excitement and even the most shy children were keen to see who was in the box and lots of giggles ensued. We met Gino the bearded Dragon, Miley the millipede, Pepper the Crested Gecko, Elsa the Pueblan Milksnake and Lily the Royal Python. The children asked questions confidently and were fascinated to learn about each animal's diet, appearance, habitat and country of origin.

World Ocean Day 2019

World Oceans Day is held every year in June to raise awareness of the vital importance our oceans play in sustaining a healthy planet. We believe that starting conversations and an interest with the children here at St. Michael's is the start of securing a better understanding to the impact that we are having on our planet. The children have been looking at how pieces of plastic can be sadly mistaken for food and the effects this has on a healthy ecosystem. We have read stories, poems, shared our beach experiences with one another and sang beach themed songs. The children at tennis even played games and activities all about the ocean! We were delighted to see so many children arrive in nu
