With Mrs Franklin-Smith
Summer holidays are finally here!
St George’s Staff wish all of our families a wonderful, safe Summer and we really look forward to seeing you all again in September.
Year 6 Leaver’s
The children in year 6 would usually take part in a leaver’s service, in front of their families and the rest of the school, where they would each give a speech about their time at St George’s, their upcoming adventure to secondary school and to wish their friends good luck. Sadly this has been unable to happen this year due to covid-19 and social distancing. Therefore the children have been recording messages which have been compiled into a wonderful Leaver’s Video, which can be watched or downloaded here.
All of the staff at St George’s wish every one of our year 6 children the very best of luck for the future. You will all be missed!
If you are worried or concerned about the daunting step of transitioning from primary to secondary school then you are not alone. This video by Bigfoot Arts Education TV discusses common worries and offers reassuring advice. You can watch the video here.
The Summer Reading Challenge has begun!
This year’s Summer Reading Challenge has been adapted because of the disruptions caused by Covid-19, and the impact it has had on schools and public libraries. To support parents and carers with reading at home, the Summer Reading Challenge has launched earlier than usual.
This year’s theme is the “SILLY SQUAD” – a celebration of funny books, celebration and laughter. The website will be completely free and there will be a place for children to rate and review their books, and as always, work towards their reading goal. Other special features include: video content, games, quizzes, digital and downloadable activities to encourage children to take part in the challenge, even though it will be from home.
