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!

The reveal of 'The Big Frieze' - Monday 4th March 2019

Each class has taken part in creating our own version of 'The Big Frieze'. This illustrates seven of the eight core concepts that are explored in our RE lessons. Father David joined our unveiling and blessed the artwork we had created.
