Leavers' Production 2017: 'Let Loose!'
The children blew us all away with their fantastic performance. ‘Let Loose’ was so funny! Who will ever forget Eloise and Charley as the very happy parents who had sent both their children away for a week or Harriet as the ‘child in charge’ or the children falling into the river! The singing was amazing. Well done to all.
Summer Fair 2017: Around the World
For the first time in years we had a beautiful sunny day for our annual Summer Fair. We had a good turn out of parents who enjoyed the various activities including a bouncy castle, a steel band and a coconut shy. There was plenty for the children to do and plenty to eat, including sausage butties cooked on the barbeque. Thank you to all our parents in the PTFA 'Friends of Hoole St Michael' who worked so hard to organise and run this event.
Singing Group Concert 2017: 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'
Oh my goodness! The singing group was amazing! What a talented group of children! The children managed to learn SO MANY WORDS and sing so beautifully. They also told the story of Joseph with their actions and facial expressions. Some of the actions were only taught in the days leading up to the concert and yet, they remembered everything. As headteacher and leader of the singing group, I am so incredibly proud of them. I have now run the singing group for six years, and every year they get better and better. Even though we only had 20 children in the group, they were so powerful. Thank you for your contributions parents and grandparents, at the end of the concert. We managed to raise over £70 which will be used to buy new music resources for school. It is with a very heavy heart that I say goodbye to Hoole St Michael singing group. You have given me a great deal of joy!
Sports Day: July 2017
Unlike last year, with all the rain, we were grateful for slighly cooler weather for this year's Sports' Day! Every single child (including a great turn out of our new starters) took part in a number of races, including our traditional sack race and egg and spoon, sprint, relays, long-distance and obstacle races amongst others. There was a lot of sporting spirit on display with some fantastic performances seen. Well done all and particularly to Mars who were the winning team.
June 2017: Dance from the heart
Every year, South Ribble Sports Partnership organise a wonderful event called 'Dance from the Heart'. Many schools participate. Some of our Y6 children went on a course to learn the dance and then, with a video to help them, they taught the whole school the special dance. This year there was a movie theme, including music from the Muppets and Star Wars. On Friday 16th June we performed as a whole school and even had some Dancing Stormtroopers joining us. It was great fun!
April 2017: Barclay's Team Gardening Day!
During the last few weeks, one of our parents, Rebecca Ferguson who is a Barclays employee, has been liaising with Mrs Walsh and Mr Kenyon to discuss the work that was needed in our gardening area. The team from Barclay applied for a £500 grant to help them complete the work. On Thursday 20th April, 11 team members from Barclays spent the day at our school. They painted our class planters and built two new wooden planters for us. They power-washed the boardwalk which leads to our outside classroom and then repainted it with anti-slip paint. Also, the team re-stained the fence around our Reception outside area. In addition to this, the team refilled the planters with compost and spread bark on the ground around the planters. At the end of the day, our children sang for the team and gave them a round of applause! The team from Barclays were so positive, hard-working and helpful. As a school, we would like to express our warm thanks for their wonderful contribution to our gardening area!
March 2017: Ground Force Day!
Our pupils had a wonderful time on Saturday morning helping out at Ground Force Day! The children helped tidy the gardening area, planted shrubs, brushed-up and helped improve the planters outside the school porch. We would like to thank the PTFA for organising the morning and also all the staff, pupils, parents and volunteers who helped out on the day - we had a great time! The refreshments were lovely too! The new raised bed (created from the old wooden train) was an inspired idea and the newly woven willow looks lovely over the wooden boardwalk!
