Autumn Term Reflection 2018-2019
What a busy start to our new school year we have had! We welcomed the new children into our Reception class as they were given a St. Michael's Prayer Book to share with their families, so that they can worship together.
School continues to promote the word of God within the family, by buying a ‘Wednesday word’ for each home. Parents are asked to share this with their children. The Sunbeams and Rainbows provision started in November.
To prepare for full membership of the Church, the Sacramental Programme for Year 3 pupils began on September 30th. A joint advent celebration with the Year 3 pupils from St Bernadette’s is also planned. The children will have the opportunity to socialise afterwards by meeting their prayer partners and playing together.
On St. Michael’s feast day, we celebrated Mass in Church. After mass, parents and friends joined us for a Macmillan Coffee morning. Which linked to our Celebrations of 50 years of St. Michael's school.
The creative displays around school informed us of the importance of remembering in November and the period of waiting in Advent. The also reflected our learning about baptism.
On 1st November, Mass for All Saints was shared with the Parish community.
A number of staff joined colleagues from other catholic schools in Bury at St. Mary’s Church to celebrate the annual 'Catholic Education’ Mass on 8th November.
The Mini Vinnies have had another busy term. They sold their ‘Children in Need’ badges.
The term will be completed with a whole school Mass celebration in the last week of term, which will set the tone for a wonderful Christmas break.
