Please keep checking these platforms for updates and new tasks. 

If you are struggling with any of the work you have been asked to complete then you can message your teachers directly via Toco Mail

R.E – Witnesses – Pentecost/Serving

1. ExploreWhen we live in the spirit of Easter, we bear witness to the joy of living for Christ and inspire others to live for Him. Could you use the questions below to make a mind map about someone you admire who gives themselves in service for others?

 

  • Think of someone who impresses you deeply because of the way she/he lives.
  • What is it that impresses you?
  • What do you think inspires them?

 


2. Reveal – Can you read these scriptures and write an eye-witness account as one of the disciples of what you see/hear. What will you do next? Luke’s tells how Jesus reassures the disciples they won’t be alone. Matthew’s tells of their future mission.

Luke 24: 44-49, Matthew 28: 16-20


3. Reveal – As we read the scripture below, we remember the disciples still don’t understand that Jesus’ kingdom was not of earth but of the heart. As an apostle of the Lord, can you make an action plan that shows how you will share Jesus with the world when you become a witness for Him.

Acts 1: 6-14


4. Reveal – Click on the link below and learn of someone who was witness to the Good News of Jesus. How might we continue to follow Stephen’s example and witness to the Good News?

 Stephen chosen to spread the word


5. Reveal – Click on the link where you can read of modern day witnesses to the Easter message. Can you think of a modern day witness in your family, our parish or a celebrity? Can you write a report on how their actions help change the lives of others for the better?

Modern witnesses to the power of the Holy Spirit.


6. Reveal – Click on the link where you can find a worksheet to print off or copy about ourselves as witnesses to the teachings of Jesus.

Ourselves as witnesses


To respond to our topic, click on the link below and think of a prayer to celebrate all you have learned about being a witness to the Easter message and how this helps shape your life.

Responding and celebrating Pentecost through prayer (1)

Introduction, Why is Climate Change important?(1), Why is Climate Change important? (2), What is being said?, What can we do? (1), What can we do? (2).

How many can you take part in?

1. Chester Zoo Virtual Tour

2. Once Upon A Robot- Story Competition

Can you write a story where the main character is a robot?

Your story can be set on another planet where he or she has travelled to. It can be a story about how your robot gets into trouble because they do things wrong and gets into trouble with its owners. Maybe your robot could go on holiday with you. The choice is yours!

TOP TIPS FOR STORY WRITING

Have a beginning, middle and end for your story.

Use lots of description so that your reader can create a picture of your story.

Give your main character some kind of problem to solve as this will give you a good structure

Describe your robot

E.g. The enormous silvery head turned towards me, then he smiled…”

Good Luck!

Entries can be uploaded to this site for entry

Mission Statement

At St Michael and All Angels School we are a Christian Community where everybody is valued and recognised  for their unique contribution.

We provide a child-centred education in a positive learning environment in which all children may reach their full potential.

 The Gospel values of love and respect are at the heart of our partnership with parents and carers, Governors, the parish and wider community.



Roles in school

Our School Councillors for this year are: Ellis H and Neave. They will represent our class in school council meetings and share ideas from the children in our class.

Our Eco Warriors for this year are: Scarlett and Summer. They will work as part of the Eco Team and help to make our school more eco-friendly.

Our Maths Champions this year are: Isobel and Cole.

Our Reading Ambassadors are: Isla and William. Their role is to share a love of reading within the school.

Our Digital Leaders are: Brienna and Alfie. They will help others with all things digital!  

Our Worship Warriors this year are: Tia and Sam.



 

Class Dojo

Our class reward system is Class Dojos.

Children can earn them for having a positive attitude towards their work, effort, a high standard of work, teamwork, caring for others, challenging themselves and many more.

Children will be rewarded with prizes / certificates.

However, class dojos can also be lost for unacceptable behaviour, lack of  homework etc. 

 

Please remember that we are always in school early and at the door if you need a quick word  and if it needs more time then we can make an appointment for before or after school. It is better to come and talk to us than worry about something that we can solve together.

We really appreciate your support and look forward to working with your child as this year progresses.

Football news will follow as we go along and revision clubs will continue on Tuesday and Thursday after school.

Let us remember what it says in our mission statement –
That we are all valued and recognised for our unique contributions
