In the footsteps of Michael

Over the last Michael term, we immersed ourselves the challenges and the theme of Michael went on with saints that had been inspired by Michael as well. Many of these, like St Joan, St Colum and St Margaret heard Michael's call and set forth to discover their higher selves while contributing to society. During this time, they did their time tables and went all the way up to eight.

Images of the saints. Here's Saint Joan. In this exercise the children draw an image and write their own sentence. It is not corrected. The exercise is to give the children a sense of what sentence making is like and to instill confidence in them as they set forth on their own exciting quest.

It is the season for challenges, so they spent much of the week with games - and conkering their fears. Class group shot of the conker competition. With some knitting thrown in for good measure!
