Art Gallery

Over recent weeks the children have created a range of artwork using different media around the theme ‘Local artists and the Local area’. Children created artwork in the style of Chris Cyprus, Phil Craven and Mrs Mayall. The artwork ranged from pencil drawings to collage and photography. Year 6 children participated in several workshops led by local artist ‘Mrs Mayall’. She introduced the children to various skills and techniques which they then used to create depictions from the text ‘The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse’ using watercolour. On Friday 10th February the artwork was displayed in school for families and local resident to view. We had an overwhelming response and the artwork was for sale by donation which raised £150 towards sports equipment that the school council are currently raising funds for.

Puffin Class Sleepover

The children of Puffin Class arrived back at school at 7pm on Thursday 23rd May. There was excitement in the air as the children said goodnight to their parents and made their way to the school hall. Everyone laid their beds out, changed into PJs and settled into sleeping bags for a film and supper. Much to the teachers' surprise most of the children were fast asleep and snoring by 11:30pm! Half 5 the next morning came very quickly and after tidying up the hall the children had a morning play outside and got to be the first children in the new outdoor classroom. Parents began to arrive and together everyone had breakfast in Puffin Class. In the afternoon, they visited Mossley park and had lots of fun playing on the zip wire, climbing frame and swing. 

Miss Foster is very proud of Puffin Class for their behaviour at the sleepover, they were a real credit to St Georges.

Ian Bland Visit

St. George's were very lucky to have the poet Ian Bland work with our children. The day started with a wonderful and extremely funny assembly, followed by class workshops and finally, an opportunity for the children to perform their superb compositions. The day was a great success and much fun was had by all. The day has inspired many of our children to continue writing poetry and who knows, there may be a budding future poet in our midst!
