The Book Bus came to see us!
Recently, the Book Bus came to visit our school. It was full of lots of books and games for us to buy and we loved getting some nice new books for our school libraries too!
A few weeks ago we had our whole school Readathon to raise money for Alder Hey children’s hospital. We had lots of fun reading books with our book buddies, visiting the library, having a reading breakfast with our parents or carers and even a dress up day!
As a school we ,anages to raise £155 that will be donated to Alder Hey to help them buy more books for their hospital library, so a BIG thank you to everyone for your kind donations!
Thursday 1st of March saw some very weird and wonderful happenings at St Michael's! There were
a wide variety of book characters on show here to celebrate World Book Day!
Special assemblies were held in the afternoon where we had some fantastic readings from books such as Cogheart and The Book with No Pictures.
Children enjoyed learning about our new library rules and talking about the benefits of reading every day.
Thanks to the parents and carers who attended, we'll see you again next year!
Thank you to all of those who attended our recent Scholastic Book Fair. We had an astonishing turn out, smashing our £600 target and raising a grand total of £802!
Our school receives half of the money raised with which every class was given a book for their book corner. The rest of the funds will be used to buy in new books for our library which our children will help to select.
Thanks so much parents, carers and all who attended.
Head down to your local library and take up the Summer Reading Challenge, where you can work towards prizes for every book you manage to read during the summer holidays.
This year's theme is Roald Dahl based: The Big Friendly Read!

As part of our continuing work this year to promote reading for pleasure, the staff and children of St Michael's decided to take up the challenge of working for the Reading Quality Mark. The Reading Quality Mark is an award given out by the National Literacy Trust in recognition of outstanding dedication to reading.
The award is given on three levels: bronze, silver or gold and is only given out after a full inspection and assessment takes place.
St Michael's had their assessment on the 11th of July and we are proud to announce that we were awarded the gold level! This would not be possible without the hard work, effort and commitment shown by the staff, children and all of our wonderful parents, carers and friends.
On behalf of the school we would like to say a big thank you! Happy Reading everyone! And enjoy your summer break!
