World Book Day in Year 3!, by Miss Jones

Date: 2nd Mar 2018 @ 12:49pm

What an excellent World Book Day Year 3 have had! A huge well done to all of the children who participated by dressing up as a character from a book or bringing their favourite story in.

This year's theme was Share A Story. Our Year 3 children did a marvellous job of sharing a story with children from Year 1, by reading aloud and discussing their costumes with one another.

Our children also learned about lots of different authors and illustrators, and the inspiration behind the books they have written/illustrated. These include Cressida Cowell; Andy Stanton; Kiran Milwood; and Chris Riddell. Click on the link below if you want to find out more information!

Children's Mental Health Week , by Pickering

Date: 12th Feb 2018 @ 9:18am

6E raised funds for Children's Mental Health charity Place2Be at uppersite all week, From donations on the gate, a sponsored spelling bee and a Bring in & Buy sale. The children aimed to raise £95 which would provide Place2Be's whole school service for one child for a full year. With their hardwork and determination combined with the genorisity of the children and their families, 6E raised over £215. St George's was one of the only schools on the Wirral celebrating Children's Mental Health Week, proving once again that St George's really is the "Place to BE!" 

One in ten children aged between 5 and 16 years (three in every classroom) has a mental health problem, and many continue to have these problems into adulthood

3B Art - Ancient Greek Red-Figure Pots , by Mrs Kingsley

Date: 2nd Feb 2018 @ 4:20pm

As part of our Ancient Adventures topic, this week 3B have been learning all about ancient Greek pottery. We have created our own red-figure pots with spectacular results! 

Firstly, we chose our pot from a selection traditionally used in Ancient Greece, then we sketched and coloured in our pots in typical teracotta colours. The next stage involved us painting the whole pot black with a mixture of arylic paint and washing up liquid! This replicated the black slip that was used to cover the terracotta pots in Ancient Greek times. Finally, we used a cocktail stick to etch our traditional designs onto the pots. 

We hope you enjoy our gallery!
