In Key Stage 2, the Year 3 pupils used shapes to draw a variety of forms such as people, dogs, elephants and owls. Year 4 created watercolour paintings of overlapping shapes and applied the watercolour skills they had been practising in class.

Plans for St George’s Day have now been finalised and we hope as many families and friends as possible will join us to celebrate with our parade and field event.

Children are invited to wear red and white for the day and lower site pupils will be walking to upper site before lunch to enjoy a whole school picnic.

This will be provided by school and will include a sandwich, sausage roll, biscuit and drink. If your child would prefer their own packed lunch you are welcome to provide it but please remember no nut products or sweets.

At 1.30pm the children will leave upper site and parade down Sandy Lane and along St George’s Road with their flags, shields and other accessories. At Mayfield Road years 5 and 6 will turn left and head back to upper site while F2 to year 4 continue onto lower site.

School will close early on that day, at 2.30pm, to allow families to go to upper site for a celebration event. The event will finish by 6pm.  We plan on having live music, food, a drinks tent, games, bouncy castles etc.  There will be some charges for games and refreshments.

Dragon Club will operate as normal on this day. We hope to see as many people as possible lining the parade route and joining us at upper site from 2.30pm.

Lyrics for the St George's Day song , by Pickering

Date: 16th Apr 2019 @ 3:09pm

There was a brave knight long ago,
Long ago, Long ago.
There was a brave knight long ago,
Long ago.

There was a dragon in his cave,
In his cave, in his cave.
There was a dragon in his cave,
Long ago.

St. George went riding on his horse,
On his horse, on his horse.
St. George went riding on his horse
To the cave.

The dragon roared and breathed out fire,
Breathed out fire, breathed out fire.
The dragon roared and breathed out fire,
At St. George.

St. George did stab him with his sword
In his heart, in his heart.
St. George did stab him with his sword,
Long ago.

.
George set the princess free at last,
Free at last, free at last,
George set the princess free at last,
Free at last.

So, everybody’s happy now,
Happy now, happy now,
So, everybody’s happy now,
Long ago.

Year 1 and 2 Fundraiser for Nathan Young, by Mrs Horton

Date: 29th Mar 2019 @ 9:21am

The children in Year 1 and 2 are raising money to support our learning hero, Nathan Young. He is raising money so that he can represent Great Britain in the Deaf World Swimming Championships in Brazil. Nathan has been in to speak to the children and gave them a very inspiring talk about his journey. As an ex-pupil of St George's it was fantastic to welcome him back to school. 

Today the children are taking part in a silent lesson and a silent playtime to help them to think about how deaf people can communicate in different ways. Their firstjob of the day was to use whiteboards to communicate their lunch choice. They will also be learning a song in sign language.

Thank you to all children and parents for the kind donations that have been sent into school today.
