Key Texts this half term, by Mrs Pierce
Date: 15th Sep 2017 @ 3:39pm
Much of our Learning in Foundation 2 this year will be based on key texts. Sharing a story is such a lovely way to get the imagination flowing and can lead to some amazing adventures! We will be using story, poetry and non-fiction texts to deliver exciting carpet sessions and to enhance the childrens play in all areas of the provision.
The key texts that we have selected for the Autumn Term are linked to our overarching theme: It's All About ME, ME, ME!! They are:
Zog by Julia Donaldson
You Be You by Linda Kranz
Living with Mum and Living with Dad by Melanie Walsh
Look Inside Your Body by Usborne.

Mini Police @ St George's, by Cassidy
Date: 12th Sep 2017 @ 12:41pm
We were delightd to start our Mini Police initiative at St George's today. Sergeant Burke and his colleague Jill from Merseyside Police held a special assembly to launch our campaign.
20 children in years 5 and 6 have been invited to apply for a place in our mini police squad who will work with Merseyside police to promote excellent behaviour and an understanding of how the police make our community safe. The mini police squad will lead assemblies, help with community projects and even take part in school trips to experience how the police work.
Mrs Skarratts-Jackson has asked the children interested in joining the mini police to complete an application form.
We look forward to revealing our first cadets in October.

Mermaid Trial - New Brighton, by Cassidy
Date: 13th Mar 2017 @ 3:15pm
In an open competition, schools and arts-based groups from across Wirral were invited to submit their ideas for decorating six identical mermaid sculptures, which will be installed this May in New Brighton as part of a colourful new tourist trail.
The results are in, and St George's Primary School has submitted a winning design!
A group of children will be selected to turn the design on paper into a reality. We are over the moon to have been selected. Our pupils will be thrilled and proud to create artwork for the enjoyment of our local community. Our mermaid will take people on a journey back in time to a dark yet glowing evening at New Brighton fairground
The Trail will be placed at strategic locations in New Brighton, inspired by and celebrating the resort’s history, heritage, and its links with the mythical ‘Black Rock Mermaid’, who was said to have appeared to a local sailor in New Brighton in the 18th century.
If you would like more information about the project, please read the online press release: http://wirralview.com/news/mermaid-trail-designers-announced-designs-remain-under-wraps

We have been made aware of the app Music.ly, a popular app used by children to create videos and chat with others – including strangers. Over the past 6 months, the High Tech Crime Unit of Merseyside Police has seen an increase in complaints with regards to strangers pretending to be much younger than they are and making contact with children.
Please continue to be vigilant when your children are using phones and other technology. It is not the Apps themselves which cause concern, it is the abuse which can occur when certain users use these products to target vulnerable children.
As a school, we are aware of the possible dangers that come with using Social Media and the Internet, as such, we are proactive in taking every precaution to ensure that our school community remains safe when online. Please find below popular apps used by children and their minimum age:
18 Years, but a 13-year-old can sign-up with parental consent.
18 to sign-up but a 13-year-old can use.
The NSPCC have some useful information to support parents to keep their children safe online.
We have arranged an e-safety information evening for parents and carers at 5pm on Monday, 13th February at upper site on Claremount Road. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to make an appointment to speak with Mr Keaney or a member of the SLT.
