We have made a great start to our Y5/6 football club on Fridays after school. The children have shown they already have some great skills and have been working hard on their passing and tackling.
Thank you to Mr. Eccles for running the club alongside Mr. Rigby and Miss. Clugston.
Friday's KS2 after school football is well underway and the club is full. Many thanks to Coach Wood and his assistants who are doing a great job in providing a sporting finish to the end of the week.
Throughout the year, St. Michael's offers children opportunities to take part in sport outside curriculum time. Please refer to the Premier Sport application forms for how to apply and pay for their Clubs. It is important that you complete the section that informs their coaches about your child's health and that they know who is collecting your child after the Club.

Dance Leaders Showcase Dec 2016
Once again, St Michael's Y5/Y6 dancers did their Fred Longworth dance leaders proud. Dancing to Last Christmas, everyone remembered the routine and supported each other . Well done everyone, the evening show was excellent!
Some Events from Last Year...
Autumn term 2016/17 sees the return of our ever popular Dance Leaders Club in partnership with FLHS whose Y10 leaders will choreograph and teach the dance. Last year's dancers from Y5 will be invited to take part along with new dancers from the current Y4.
This term, we are delighted to welcome Stuart Littler and his Community Coaches to Friday's Inclusive Club. They will be coaching the children in Short Mat Bowling, an indoor version of crown green bowling. The first session took place on 15th January and we were joined by Trevor Barton MBE who enjoyed watching the fun. By the end of the session, the children were beginning to bowl with improved length and direction. Next session is Fri 22nd. Final session is on Friday 11th March.
