St Michael is an important figure at this time of the year. He embodies will, courage, acheivement, motivation and activation. He also is the bringer of the gift of patience. And he is also locally in this bit of the world, seen as St George. I know St George is English, but he is also from this bit of the world. So this week the children, in addition (hee hee) to learning their 2 timestables, also worked at bringing St Michael to life.
In autumn St Michael with sword and with sheild
He passes over meadows and orchards and fields
He's on his way to battle against darkness and strife
He is a heavenly warrior, Protector of Light.
Here are the drawings of beans for the 2 times tables.
