St Michael in the Hamlet 
July 2014 News

I’m delighted to report the Year 6 Residential trip to PGL in June was a great success!  The children had a wonderful time.  They were a credit to themselves, their families and our school !  A huge ‘Thank You!’ to Mr Backstrom, Ms Millican, Miss Bennett, Mrs Mercer and Mrs Testrow-Forrest for giving up their weekend to facilitate the trip.  We rely on the good will of our staff to enable our pupils to experience a school weekend residential, we are fortunate to have such a committed team.
As you’re aware, the school was inspected by Ofsted on 10th & 11th June. The Ofsted Report has been circulated to our parents and carers and has been posted on our School Website. The current Ofsted regime is tougher than ever before and being able to uphold our grade actually means that the school has improved significantly since the last inspection! We are really proud of the outcome and especially proud that the Behaviour & Safety of our pupils was judged as ‘outstanding.’ Thank you for all of your support in helping us achieve this fantsatic result!
Gig in the Grounds – Spectacular Music in the Hamlet Friday, 11th July
Please note the change of time of pick up is now 1.00 pm.   Due to Health & Safety reasons, all children will need to be collected from school at 1 pm and exit via the main gates.  The field will be open if families wish to wait there until the gates open for the event at 1.45 pm.  Entry is by wristband only!
Help a South Africa School Competition
Our Year 5 children entered a National competition with RED Communications for ‘Help a South Africa School’.  The children produced a collage which was made from real fruit.  There were 6 high profile judges, including a journalist from the Times Educational Supplement and a South African honorary consul, as well as people involved with the food and South African fruit industry.  The judges were very impressed with our Year 5 entry, they liked the different textures and said it was a ‘proper’ collage, which used real fruit; nice and bright, good use of quotes and terms i.e. importer, ripened etc.
We are delighted to say they have won 3rd Prize - £500 cheque.

The Children’s University
We are very proud of our 36 children who achieved an award for the Children’s University Graduation. The Award Ceremony at John Moore’s Art & Design building on Tuesday, 27th June was a very proud occasion. Thank you to all our families who came along to support the children on their special day!
Please remember to log your hours for this term as they will go towards next year’s celebration.
Well done to our Athletics Team for their recent achievements at Wavertree Outdoor Centre.  As a result, 4 individual athletes across Year 5 and Year 6 and the Year 5 boys relay team are competing in the City Final on Tuesday, 8th July at Wavertree.  We wish them every success.  As always, our wonderful Athletics Team have represented the school brilliantly.
