2022 - 2023
Autumn Term 2
I would just like to reflect on how brilliantly all of your children have done at St George’s. This term got off to a great start when Oak visited the indoor planetarium and they learnt about the Solar System as well travelling at great speed through the Asteroid Belt! A big ‘thank you!’ to the PTA for their continued support and payment for this wonderful experience.
The children’s artwork has been a highlight this half-term and they were fortunate enough to be taught paintbrush skills by a visiting teacher with a specialism in Art. It was lovely to see the variety of brush techniques such as: pointillism, hatching, blending and swirling. The artwork that they produced was amazing and so colourful!
I am so proud with the improvement in all of the children’s writing since September. They have worked really hard and the quality of the children’s sentences is amazing using: fronted adverbials, subordinating conjunctions and synonyms. The children no longer accept basic sentences and they strive to make their writing as interesting and exciting to read as possible. Well done everyone-keep up the fantastic work!
A big thank you to my Maths Booster group who got to school early and have really benefitted from the extra tuition. This extra effort will really pay off on their transition to Secondary School maths. Next term, we can look forward to another exciting year of learning with the children exploring animal classification, in Science, as well as lots of opportunities to get out and about and Live Learning: Love Learning in the Great Outdoors!
Thank you to parents and carers for your continued support and I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
Autumn Term 1
It has been fantastic having the children back at St George’s and they have all settled in really well. The daily routine has been established and the children are enjoying being back at school and learning again. This half term we have been learning about the Solar System and the children have really enjoyed researching the history of astronomy as well as researching facts about their chosen planets. From this, they produced super writing about Galileo, Capernicus and Sir Isaac Newton that they can be really proud of.
In Design and Technology, the children have been designing and making models of a planet, constructing a frame and then building on this frame with papier mache. They really enjoyed this process and did a superb job of painting them. I am looking forward to constructing a display in Oak Class with these!
Science has been fun researching the topic of Light and learning about mirrors and shadows. The children enjoyed the experiments, especially exploring how the angle of a light source affects the length of a shadow!
Well done everyone for keeping up with your home learning and I am very much looking forward to the Autumn 2 term!
