Both children display positive attitudes, respect and kindness towards others. They are consistently good role models and put in 100% effort in everything they do. Well done to both children.

Year 1 Nativity, by Miss Gough-Hughes

Date: 13th Dec 2018 @ 8:06am

Year 1 Nativity

This year, our year 1 nativity took place at Claremount church. Children performed the play - The Inn-spectors Christmas and did a fantastic job. Each class had their own role at being characters from the play with 1A being travellers, 1B being soldiers, 1C being sheep/shepherds and 1D being stars. All children were excited to get up on stage and sing their classes song. Some children had a specific role and had to say some lines in the play. We had inn-spectors, narrators, inn-keepers, shepherds, wise men, angels, a star, a donkey, Mary, Joseph and soldiers. All children did a brilliant job performing in front of lots of adults and we cannot say well done enough to each and every single child that took part in the nativity. They looked fantastic in their costumes. Thank you to all parents for their support in obtaining costumes. Have a fantastic Christmas! 

Thank you,

The Year 1 team.

Year 1 & 2 Hobgoblin, by Miss Gough-Hughes

Date: 4th Dec 2018 @ 11:10am

Year 1 and 2 thoroughly enjoyed their pantomime visit this year. The Hobgoblin came into school today to perform our very own pantomime - The Snow Queen. The children found the performance very funny and particularly enjoyed the references to Wallasey and St George’s. Also, they enjoyed shouting BARRY when they saw him appear on stage. The children shouted so loudly that all of the teachers had to cover their ears. The children enjoyed joining in when they could, making animal noises and learning a little song/chant about what they love. Children will all be doing a follow up of this visit in literacy this week. We hope that all children enjoyed this visit and hope it makes them feel ready for Christmas time.

Road Safety Week , by Miss Gough-Hughes

Date: 25th Nov 2018 @ 10:56am

Road Safety Week

Throughout the week, children at St George’s have been recognising and celebrating road safety week. The focus of road safety week this year was bike safety and how children can stay safe on the roads, especially when riding their bikes. Each class has done some work around bike safety, understanding what is essential when riding bikes: wearing helmets, wearing sensible shoes, having a reflector on the bike, ensuring the bike is the right size etc. Children in foundation stage designed and coloured their own bike to celebrate road safety week. Children in years 1 and 2 investigated what materials would be best to make a bike helmet, discussing how a helmet is strong and sturdy to protect us on the road. Children in years 3 and 4 designed their own reflector which would be suitable to use when riding a bike. They also discussed the importance of reflectors when riding a bike. Children in years 5 and 6 designed and made their own moving vehicle, looking at how bikes move safely. To finish all of the fantastic work the children completed around road safety, we celebrated with a road safety breakfast. Children enjoyed a pastry and drink of juice before school. Well done to all children for participating and working so hard throughout the week. The children are all experts at road safety! Here are some pictures of our road safety breakfast:

Road Safety Week , by Miss Gough-Hughes

Date: 20th Nov 2018 @ 7:34pm

Today, all of Year 1 spent time learning about road safety and why it’s incredibly important. The focus of road safety week this year is, bike safety and how to be safe on the road. Children in Year 1 watched a video to show them the important things to do when riding your bike, including: wearing a helmet to protect your head. As a result, we designed our very own bike helmet and discussed what material we would need to use to ensure it would be sturdy and would protect us. Some designs we completed are found below. Additionally, we conducted a mini experiment using eggs. Firstly, we dropped an egg into a bucket and observed it breaking due to the force and height it was dropped at. We then wrapped our egg in bubble wrap as a protective layer (just like a helmet) and observed how it didn’t smash this time. Children realised that the bubble wrap was just like a helmet for our heads and saw how important helmets are. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed learning about road safety and hope that the children can share what they have learnt with you. Well done Year 1 for learning the importance of road safety!

Date: 19th Nov 2018 @ 4:55pm

We had a wonderful day at the Museum of Liverpool! We had the opportunity to see various modes of transport from the past and present. We even got to sit in an old, overhead train whilst wearing old fashioned hats. Getting the ferry back to Seacombe was a pleasure. The view was spectacular and we spotted lots of patterns created by the artist Peter Blake. What a super trip we had!
