Our work this week has been noticed by Angela Eagle who has left us a message of support:
Angela Eagle said: ‘School Diversity Week is such an important campaign. It is vital that we give our young people the confidence to embrace who they are, and that we teach all children to respect people for who they are, and to celebrate difference. I want to congratulate St. George’s and all those involved in running School Diversity Week, and for encouraging pupils and teachers in the school to be positive and accepting of everyone because recognising diversity and treating everyone with respect is the key to creativity no a happier and healthier school and a happier and healthier community.’
We'll have a full video of what happened over School Diversity Week coming soon....

Year 4 Diversity Week, by Mrs Saunders
Date: 12th Jul 2018 @ 10:13am
Last week we celebrated Diversity Week. As well as finding out what was meant by diversity we explored disabilities.
We then watched a short animation about a boy who received a special present from his mum. This made us think what it must be like to live with a disability. After the film and our group discussions we presented our own piece of work about the boy. We also shared our work with our year 3 friends at the end of the week.
Take a look at some of our work in progress.
If you would like to watch the film, go to the literacy shed website and search for the film called, The Present.

Walk to School Week came to a successful end today with our Mini Police petitioning people at both sites to ask for St George’s Road and Claremount Road to become 20 mph zones.
Many people were surprised the roads aren’t already 20mph and everyone was happy to sign including our fabulous lollipop man and the bin men!
Community police were there to lend a hand and we got more then 200 signatures at both sites - not a bad mornings’s work!
The children who walked, rode or scooted to school also enjoyed a free breakfast served from 8.30am thanks to our catering teams at both sites.
We hope to be out with the petitions again after half term - thank you to everyone who signed today.
