Anxiety Event at St Michael's Middle School
In April we sent out a survey to parents to capture their views of our school, whether or not they are happy with the provision for their child and what they would like to see developed. we aslo wanted to hear what they think we do well. We had 53 responses and were very pleased at the extremely positive nature of them.
Here you can see the results and we have responded to some of the points for development that were noted.
Three teams compete at Hayeswood multiskills morning!
On Friday 4th May, our Year 1 children were joined by the Year 1 classes from Colehill First School and St John’s First School for a Multiskills Festival. Our EYFS leader who also leads P.E in our school organised the event and the children all had a wonderful time.
The 90 children began with a warm-up and then competed in 5 challenges. First they had to see how many balls they could bounce against a wall in 30 seconds and if that didn’t bowl them over they then had to knock down as many skittles as possible. Next up was the highly competitive bean bag throwing game in which the children had to try and reach the highest scoring hoops. Then it was a pure speed test as the would-be Usain Bolts and Jessica Ennis’s were timed whilst running around a track. Their final challenge was to jump across a line as many times as possible.
Each child’s scores were added up and the winning team was Colehill First School.

On Friday 29th June the whole school enjoyed different activities to explore our school values.
During our Values Day sessions, we explored what our school values mean, how we can display them in our actions; ultimately, how we can live them out.
Great examples of team work were shown within each activity, especially during the team challenges, stretcher carry, mental and physical activities.
Pupils were able to describe how they were displaying the values:
"We had to show empathy towards people who were not able to do the things that we were" - during dance activity.
"We needed to work as a team and effective communication was important. Someone need to show leadership skills and take charge" - during stretcher carry.
"We had to keep going and show determination, then show resilience when one way didn't work" - mosaic making.
We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award for for our commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport in 2017/18.
A group of Foxes children did us all proud with their determination and team work as they jigged and weaved around the maypole at the Village Fair a few weeks ago. Soaring temperatures and a certain live sporting event on television did not stop them from performing with such effort and grace as their ribbons produced beautiful patterns in each of the dances. No mean feat! Thank you for taking up your time to represent the school at this well-organised and popular event in our community. We were all very proud of you and of the singing too!
