The end of our school year has arrived in a very different way to previous years. Thank you for your support and co-operation as becoming partners in your child’s education was taken to a whole new level over the last few months but we did it and you should all be very proud of what you have achieved with your child.
I have now sent a number of fun activities by email which could be used next week or indeed as time fillers throughout the summer. As always encourage your child to read and be read to frequently. In this regard I highly recommend that you take on our whole school Summer Reading Initiative which has been explained in my email and I’ve also attached the necessary resources here too.
I hope to see you all on Zoom next Tuesday 23rd June at 10.00am for our final goodbye!
Have a restful and fun summer everyone!
Here we are at our last week of sending structured plans so hang in there and give them your best effort!
All plans and resources have now been sent by email. Lots of lovely creative Father’s Day projects this week should you choose any for those special Dad’s and Grandad’s!
I hope to see you all on Zoom next Tuesday.
Enjoy your week everyone

Parents and Students
We hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. Firstly, we want to remind you that teachers will only set work for Thursday and Friday next week due to the bank holiday.
We are incredibly proud of all our students (and their families) for the massive effort that they have put in over the last number of weeks, to ensure learning continues. We know that as the weeks go on, and the weather gets better, it is getting harder to remain focused. However, you have all been brilliant and are working so hard that we feel you deserve a special treat.
On Wednesday 3rd, Wednesday 10th and Wednesday 17th June at 10am, we have organised a PE coach to do fun Zoom PE sessions for you (and all your family). You’d never know, maybe some of the staff might join in to !!!!! It’s a great way to stay fit, see your friends and enjoy Wellness Wednesday. We would love to have our whole school community taking part in these sessions together.
Make sure we have an up to date email address for you all, if you are not sure, please send your email address to email@example.com. On Wednesday morning, we will send a link to your email address at approx. 9.50am and once you click on the link to join, you will be connected to the session.
Enjoy your June bank holiday weekend, and we hope to see you all on Wednesday

We hope you are all staying safe and well and wish you a wonderful May bank holiday weekend.
Firstly, for our second class students, Jamie, Calum, Ben, Isobel, Tara and Lucy. We know this weekend was to be your special one. While you can’t celebrate your First Communion at the minute , we wish you and your families a lovely weekend and we look forward to even bigger celebrations when your First Communion Day does arrive. A big thank you to your teacher for all her hard work in preparing you for First Communion .
Booklists and Book Rental Agreements have been emailed to all families. Please confirm with Debby if you wish to join the scheme at firstname.lastname@example.org
Well done to all families for participating in Wellness Wednesday again. It looks like you are all having loads of fun and enjoying plenty of family time. Visit our school facebook page to see some fabulous photographs.
In line with the school calendar, we have decided to give the children Monday and Tuesday off school work next week. Wednesday will remain Wellness Wednesday and therefore teachers will only assign school work for Thurs and Friday .
Finally , a very big thank you to all our families who have engaged so well with us in our new teaching approaches and a massive thank you to our teachers and staff for working so hard and continuing to provide the best possible education for the students of St Michael’s National School in such difficult times.
