Welcome to St George!

 Our teacher is Mr Smith. Have a look at the amazing things we have been doing!

 

Please see the weekly guidance timetable for our class below.

Grounds Day

The idea was to get the children outside to learn whilst enjoying the beautiful world that God has created for us. We had some worries about the weather however, although it was cold, the sun shone and the children had an amazing day, taking part in a range of activities chosen to make the most of the grounds we have at the school.

In Key Stage 2 we started our day with a Nature Quiz around the field, where we had to identify plants, trees and animals commonly found in the British countryside. We also tried our hand at some natural materials art, inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. We had a great time and even managed to plant some bulbs around the school- we can't wait to see them bloom in Spring!

Advent Craft

The children produced advent craft based on the readings of Isiah.

Art

The children collected leaves from the school grounds, left them to dry and produced leaf art using pencil rubbings.

Science

We have been studying Animals and Their Habitats this half term. The children produced fact files on animals that interested them.

Literacy

This terms literacy focus was on Sherlock Holmes. The children produced a variety of writing genres including narratives, diary entries, newspaper reports and non-chronological reports.

During our unit on Creation, the children of St George reflected on what they’d learnt about the importance of resolving conflict (through the example of Cain and Abel) by making a series of stained-glass windows, using light and colour to reflect the emotion of the scenes.

The children of St George studied the life of Nelson Mandela as part of Black History Month. After writing their non-chronological reports, they then worked collaboratively to produce a piece of artwork depicting the face of Nelson Mandela in the style of the artist, Chuck Close.
