Showing kindness and thanks, by Mrs Price
Date: 26th Mar 2020 @ 2:47pm
We have been thinking about ways that we can help others and show kindness. We have made cards for a local care home to show we care. Also to show we are thankful for those helping others we have made a banner to say thank you.
Can you make a card or picture to show you care?
Visit from Nathan Young - 2A & 2B, by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 20th Mar 2020 @ 8:23am
The children thoroughly enjoyed a visit from our current learning hero, Nathan Young. Nathan is our hero this half term because of his postivitity, resilience and sheer determination to swim, despite him being deaf. Nathan was a pupil at St George's Primary school and now represents Great Britain on the deaf swimming team. He has taken part in the deaflympics in Turkey and has also been to various countries around the world to compete, winning lots of medals. The children have been learning all about him this term and why he is our hero. They were incredibly excited to see a real life hero come in to school. He told them about what it was like growing up and why he took up swimming. He even brought in some items for the children to look at including his bronze medal, swimming caps and swim shorts. The children asked Nathan some excellent questions about his journey, learning even more about him. Well done Nathan! We are proud to call your our learning hero!

Dear families, following last night's government's announcement, we will be in full planning mode today. The uncertainty regarding school closures has caused anxiety for families. What we now know is that from the end of the school day on Friday the 20th March the school will be closed to the majority of pupils. This is an 'indefinite measure'. We have no indication how long this will last for. This measure has been put in place to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) virus. I am meeting with the Senior Leadership Team at 9.30am this morning to look at how we move forwards. Throughout this crisis we have applied the mantra that we act in a 'calm and informed' manner. That will be the case over the next few days. We recognise the pressure this will put on many families. School closures mean self-isolation and social distancing. It is not an extended holiday. We will be trying to ensure that your children are emotionally supported and reassured today. School is a place of safety and familiarity for children. We know that they will be confused and anxious. Message is that we are all ok at St George's. Closing school is a helpful step, so our communities are able to care better for those who are unwell. We will be sending home some resources and ideas to support your child's learning at home. We will be using the year group web pages of the website to ensure that we communicate with you and provide daily learning advice. http://www.stgeorges.wirral.sch.uk/classes If your child is currently off school, we will make the learning packs available on Friday afternoon from the school offices. The government have asked us to remain partially open for the most vulnerable pupils and for the families of key workers. That will include 'wrap around' Dragon Club provision and holiday club provision for children eligible under government guidance. In the spirit of the government's request to support key workers that offer will be open from nursery to year 6. At present we are unclear about the scope of that provision. The government have said that they will be providing clear guidance today on their expectations for schools, what roles 'key workers' will constitute and their plans for feeding free school meals children. As soon as we have this information we will be contacting families with further details about the school offer, who is eligible and how you will register for this. There is no need to contact us before then. As a staff team we are devastated to be closing. We come to work every day to provide the best care and opportunities for your children. Be reassured that we will continue working to ensure that we look after the families at St George's and planning to re-open at the earliest opportunity that we can safely educate and care for your pupils.

British science week 2020 - Year two, by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 12th Mar 2020 @ 8:06am
Science week 2020
This week, the year two children have enjoyed celebrating British science week. We have been completing activities associated with space. Our main activity, was exploring what plants could (if they had all of the appropriate resources/equipment) grow and survive on space. The children explored various seeds, vegetables and fruit, identifying what they were. Then we discussed how these plants grow and what part of each item we actually eat. Many children were shocked at some of the results. We then had a discussion about what plants would need to grow on space and decided which (if any) would be the best. We will be continuing our science week next week, completing more activities associated to space including: seeing what space looks like using VR, testing how craters are formed etc.
On a final note, there is a KS1 science section on the website if you want to see what we have been learning about this year. Additionally, there are some useful apps on there for your children to play linked to our science topics throughout KS1.

Year 6 Football Fixture , by Thomas
Date: 2nd Mar 2020 @ 5:37pm
Year 6 competed in their latest Houlihan Cup fixture against St Peter's. After a hard fought match in tough conditions , they unfortunately lost the game 3-2. Despite creating some great chances in the second half a determined performance from the opposition goalkeeper prevented them from getting level. Well done to all the boys and we look forward to the next game on Thursday against Poulton Lancelyn.

I would just like to echo the words of Mr Cassidy in thanking our amazing staff team for making this exciting and ambitious trip a possibility. They have truly been superb and ensured the children felt totally safe and secure at all times with their unlimited energy, positivity and care.
Your children have been an absolute credit to you. They have been complemented wherever we have visited both for their manners and their care of each other. It has been a pleasure and honour to share in their excitement when watching live theatre, travelling on the tube and Harry Potter World.
Thank you so much Year 4
