Slow Down for Bobby , by Miss Gough-Hughes

Date: 27th Sep 2017 @ 2:13pm

 

 

Slow Down for Bobby!

 

Today St George's Primary School have been fortunate enough to get a visit from the Liverpool based writer and storyteller, Jude Lennon. Jude Lennon informed children of the importance of road safety and told the sad yet inspiring story of a young boy named Bobby. Jude read the children a story called SuperBob which the children loved taking part in, doing actions to represent the importance of slowing down and sticking to the 20MPH speed limit near schools. The children have been set a special job, telling all of their friends and family about always slowing down for the 20MPH speed limit and how children can keep themselves safe when walking near the road. Jude taught the children the following sayings: 'I'm thinking about how to be safe on the roads' and 'slow down, everyone'. The children thouroughly enjoyed Jude's visit and have learnt some valuable lessons regarding road safety. A huge thank you to Jude Lennon and The Bobby Colleran Trust for teaching such a valuable lesson.

 

Mini Police launch, by Mrs Walters

Date: 27th Sep 2017 @ 4:02pm

Our newly elected Mini Police from years 5 and 6 had the pleasure of attending the launch event at the Emergency Services Training Centre in Birkenhead along with five other schools.

The children met the High Sheriff and the Assistant Chief Constable Julie Cooke along with other senior members of the police.

The children were lucky to see the National Police Air Service arrive in a helicopter and were able to see the police dog section and mounted police with their horses Boris and Harriet.

They also had a talk from the armed response team and were able to sit in their vehicles and all the children sat on a police motorbike.

This is the start of their journey as Mini Police and they will be attending more events in the future.

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.

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.

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

E-safety Information Evening - Monday 13th February 2017 at 5pm, by Cassidy

Date: 13th Mar 2017 @ 3:14pm

 

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:

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.
