Thank you to all those emailing photos and ideas in for fun home learning and practicing important life skills. Priya has been busy baking: using and applying her maths skills (measuring and estimating) and literacy skills (reading the recipe). You could also write your own recipe or even write your own review for your recipe? I am sure they taste delicious Priya-well done!

Julian has also been busy cooking - his recipe was inspired by 'Masha and Bear' where he made his own Wonton soup!

                   

Hope you are all keeping well! We launched our 'decorate a boiled egg' Easter competition on Twitter - please send in any of your entries via 'myhomework'. Thank you Eddy-very colourful!

Homework will be collected in on Fridays and new spellings and timetables will go home on Tuesdays. Reading diaries will also be collected in on a Friday, however, pupils should still bring these in every day. Thank you to all those who read with their children at home - it makes such a difference to the children's skills, enjoyment and confidence in reading!

Meet the Flint Stones:

Year 2 and 3 had good fun dressing up as cave men/women and had a chance to hot seat one another asking questions about what life was like back then compared to nowadays. They had some brilliant ideas and it sparked lots of debates such as did they use bones for hair clips? Did they play similar games to us? And how did they speak back then? 

Year 2 and 3 have been busy making jewellery out of clay and discovered that stone age people used shells, stones and even teeth and bones to make jewellery! 

St George are currently learning about 'Plants' in Science and went exploring in the school playground to find different plants. We discussed how each part of the plant has an important job to help keep it alive and what a plant needs to survive.

St George have been supporting Anti-bullying week with a range of activities and wearing odd socks! We had many acts of kindness from the children throughout the week. We celebrated using drama and freeze frame scenarios where someone had been unkind (drawn on someone's work/left someone out of a game/ignored someone) and the children had to come up with solutions to fix the bullying. The children also created their own posters of 'How to be a good friend' and made a friendship recipe. 

St George have been busy putting on their acting voices and retelling the story of the Great Fire of London to Stravinsky's 'The Firebird' - some even made their own props for the performance!

 

St George have been exploring light in Science and that 'dark' is the absence of light. We have led various investigations to find out which materials are transparent, opaque or translucent and which materials reflect light well. 

                     

 

                         

St George have had an action packed week with a visit from the Fire Brigade! We were lucky enough to go on the fire engine, use the hose, use their 'special walkie-talkie' and look at some of the machinery they use. We also had a Fire Officer come and visit us in class to talk to us about fire safety and ways we can stay safe!

 

St George had great fun celebrating Grandparents' week - thank you to all that came. The children wrote prayers to special people in their lives and had fun performing their song and dance during afternoon tea. 

 

              

 

St George had great fun baking their own bread and writing instructions! They learned about where bread comes from before we buy it in the supermarket. The children were excellent bakers and the bread tasted delicious! They had so much fun that they wanted to do it all over again the next day.

Some children learned 'London's Burning' on the glockenspiel in less than an hour - wow, what talented musicians we have!

Thank you for all your support already! We have had lots of reading diaries back with comments in and the children are eager to show us so it means a lot to us and them! Reading should be done four times a week and I will collect reading journals and homework diaries on Fridays.

We have PE on Mondays and Thursdays so please ensure children have a full PE kit with plimsolls or trainers that fit and please label all clothing just in case they get lost/mixed up. Please come and see me if you need anything else.
