Bread Making in Redwood

Last week Mrs Hewitt kindly came into Redwood Class to teach them how to make bread. They made Focacia, white, mixed, and rye loaves with them. It was an informative session, and great fun! The loaves were divided up and the children were able to take some home to their families to enjoy together. Huge thanks to the wonderful Mrs Hewitt.

Enthusiastic Elm!

Lucas Olivia

 

Enthusiastic Elm pupils have really enjoyed their Geography theme.
Oscar shared photos from a family holiday to Mount Etna.  Benjamin drew an annotated volcano diagram at home.  
Jake and Luca brought in useful reference books.  
Poppy showed us lava from Mount Kilimanjaro.  
Kenan created a PowerPoint about natural disasters and their causes.
Olivia and Luca made realistic models of a volcano and a tsunami.
The whole class have carried out tornado and volcano experiments in science lessons (a little messy!) and created detailed earthquake safety leaflets.
New school atlases have also helped them to study our ‘restless earth’ and plate tectonics in more detail.
Thank you to the children and their families for helping to bring our topic to life!

St Michael's Choir sings with Knebworth Community Chorus

Choir
On Saturday 9th December 2017 our choir joined Knebworth Community Chorus for their 'Carols for Christmas' concert. The choir performed: 'One World,' 'Turn Down The Lights,' 'I Saw Three Ships' and 'Get on Board this Train.' They sang beautifully, and received many compliments both from the audience and the Community Chorus. Thank you Mrs Hewitt and Mrs Wadey for all your efforts and thank you to all the parents who came along to support the children. In the second half there were performances from some St Michael's instrumentalists. Isabelle and Harriet played a recorder duet 'Spring from The Four Seasons' by Vivaldi. William played two pieces on piano and Megan two on violin. We were really pleased to welcome back a former St Michael's pupil Erine, now in Y7 at Monks Walk, who performed a flute duet with Mrs Hewitt. The children performed very well and received terrific applause from the audience! Thank you St Michael's choir and instrumentalists for showcasing music at St Michael's  - you were excellent and should be really proud of yourselves!
