The wonderful actors in the Shakespeare after school club had a visit from Ruth Johnson, a talented theatre director. Ruth is helping with our staging of our Act from Macbeth, and the St Michael’s actors will work on her suggestions for delivering lines, moving around the stage and the transition between scenes. We are all so excited to be part of the performance – and it is brilliant to see the confidence and enjoyment of everyone. Details of the performance, which is alon

Today, Y5 had a fantastic (sunny!) day out at Jarrow Hall. They experienced life as an anglo-saxon. Firstly, they went round the farm and told the story of Beowulf around the campfire.

After lunch, they had a go at weaving before throwing rotten fruit at Mrs Exley in the stocks! A brilliant day!
Year 1 are learning about length and height and have been using standard measure ( metre sticks) and non standard measure ( footprints) to investigate the playground and outdoor area. Lots of counting and teamwork – well done Year 1.

We have to put fresh pond water in twice a week, and each day we notice something different. We record it in our ‘Tadpole Watch’ book.
