Brass and String Christmas Concert
Well done to our brass and violin players who performed a variety of Christmas songs for us this morning. They were fantastic and certainly put us in the festive spirit.
What a wonderful morning in our nativity dress rehearsal; a poignant reminder of Christmas 2017 alongside the traditional nativity. The children were amazing and really rose to the occasion with their singing, recorder playing and acting. They were all brilliant and made us very proud. Well done everyone and a big thank you to all the staff and volunteers who helped to make it so wonderful.
Carol Singing round the village
After sharing a Jacob's Join we entertained the villagers by carol singing for them. Thank you to all the volunteers who joined us.
We raised £115.45.
A group of children joined Opa, the chaplain from St Aidan's, and Mrs Fleet, on of our governors, on our prayer walk through the village. Even though it was wet, it didn't dampen the children's spirits as they prayed for family, friends and members of the church worldwide. Great fun was had taking part in the activities too.
Another great musical performance, this time fro our brass players and our violinist. The children played wonderfully well and showed us just what you can achieve with practice and hard work.
Our new reception children and current Oak class enjoyed a fabulous teddy bear's picnic as part of Induction Day. The children had to hunt for teddies before enjoying a delicious picnic.
What a fabulous time we all had at the Summer Concert. The children were amazing and performed brilliantly. We had a Michael Jackson tribute, a John Lennon song and a Year 6 version of Downtown Abbey to name but a few! What a fabulously talented bunch of children we have in school.
We had a super performance this morning from our guitarists, led by Mr Bell. The children played a variety of tunes. Well done everyone!
The Big Frieze
'Artist Emma Yarlett was commissioned to create a wall frieze to illustrate seven of the eight core concepts that are explored throughout the Understanding Christianity materials. Effectively, this presents a view of the ‘big story’ of the Bible – an artist’s response to the approach used in the Understanding Christianity materials.'
The children are exploring The Big Frieze, they tried to match up and order each of the seven concepts of the frieze.
The seven concepts are; Creation, Fall, People of God, Incarnation, Gospel, Salvation and the Kingdom of God.
Each year group are now taking a small section of the frieze and expanding it using their own ideas.They are researching stories from that concept and are creating their own panel to make a St Michael's Big Frieze.
We have been very busy creating the resources for the outside Reflection Area. The children have painted, built, dug and woven different materials to create dream catchers, toadstools, a pebble path, a seating area and crosses. The finished effect will be fabulous. We are very proud of all their efforts. Great team work everyone!
