Today, Year 2 were lucky to have a visit from RNLI life guards Ben and Bex. We learnt so much about being safe on and around the beach, what all of the flags mean, how to call for help if you are in danger in the water and how to be safely rescued. A lot of children were shocked to find out that the Coast Guard is the 4th emergency service you can call out when dialling 999!

Wirral Primary Schools Swimming Championships Final , by Mrs Horton
Date: 22nd Jun 2019 @ 5:14pm
9 of our swimmers took part in the year 5/6 Wirral Schools Swimming final on Friday 21st June at Europa Pools. Many medals were gained in individual races and relays. We are very proud to announce that St George’s were the overall winners. This is quite an achievement as St George’s have not won the cup since 2000.
It was a great team effort from Reagan, Jake, Petra, Minnie, Lily, Luke, Jai, Henrietta and Beatrice. All swimmers were excellent; not only in the pool but in their positive poolside attitudes.
A huge well done to all of the team. We couldn’t be prouder!

2B Art Day with Ticky Lowe, by Miss Mulheirn
Date: 20th Jun 2019 @ 1:10pm
On Monday, we made all sorts of wonderful seaside creations with the local artist Ticky Lowe. We made our own felt by rolling small strands of wool together with soapy water and we then practised our plaiting skills. We used our imagination to make unique sea creatures using a range of materials and applied the stitching skills we had practised the previous week. Our messiest table was the tie-dying table... we had so much fun experimenting with different colours and techniques. For our school displays, we wove strips of fabric to make a splashy sea, and attached our lovely sealife to make the sea complete. We hope you enjoy our fantastic artwork!
2B Trip to New Brighton , by Miss Mulheirn
Date: 20th Jun 2019 @ 12:56pm
2B had a marvellous time in New Brighton on Wednesday. We identified human and physical features of the area and helped to clean the beach of litter. We really enjoyed taking care of our local environment, inspired by our learning hero ‘The Little Picker’. Towards the end of the morning we drew the landmarks we could see when facing north, east, south and west. We even had time for a refreshing ice lolly! What a great day we had!

6D’s day in New Brighton, by Miss Newton
Date: 18th Jun 2019 @ 4:43pm
we had a lovely day today in New Brighton. As part of our geography topic we made comparisons between the River Mersey and the Yangtze River in China. We learnt that the River Mersey is just 70 miles long whereas the Yangtze is over 3000! The children carried out some observational sketches and took photographs which we are going to use to make further comparisons.
2C New Brighton Beach Trip, by Mrs Malloy
Date: 18th Jun 2019 @ 3:17pm
On Monday morning 2C braved the elements to visit New Brighton beach. Here, with the help of Dave the Coastal Ranger, we collected litter with pickers. We were fascinated to learn that it takes 1000 years to break down a plastic bag! Next, we went on a physical and human features walk around the environment, stopping to sketch the Liverpool skyline. Finally, because we were by the seaside, we all enjoyed a delicious ice lolly. What a fun morning we had!
6A Chinese Art, by Mrs Taylor
Date: 18th Jun 2019 @ 3:23pm
Most of 6a took part in Bikeability today but some completed some Chinese art instead. Children learnt about the ‘Four Gentlemen’ and recreated them using different brushstrokes.

The Mini Police in years 5 and 6 had a fabulous time this morning meeting four legged members of Merseyside Police and watching a demonstration of their work.
They learnt all about the work of police dogs and, thanks to finally having some dry weather, they were able to watch them in action on the school field.
Thank you to Merseyside Police for arranging a very special visit.
2D Trip to New Brighton, by Mrs Cameron-Ivanov
Date: 18th Jun 2019 @ 10:37am
On Monday 2D and 2C went on a trip to New Brighton.
We spent the first part of the morning taking in the sights and spotted lots of physical and human geography around us.
During the second part of the morning, we helped Coastal Ranger Dave tidy up New Brighton beach by using some litter pickers to collect washed up plastic and other bits of rubbish. Can you guess how much litter we collected? 2 whole bags which were really heavy. Dave told us to remember to recycle properly and help reduce the amount of plastic we use because it is polluting our seas and rivers.
We also took time to do some sketches of our surrounding area, looking at what we could see in the North, East, South and West, as well as enjoy an ice lolly. How yummy!
6A/B Visit New Brighton , by Mrs Taylor
Date: 17th Jun 2019 @ 2:35pm
6A and 6B braced the weather today for a trip to New Brighton. We walked from school to the boating lake, where we looked at human and physical features using compass points. We then walked to visit the St George’s mermaid and then walked to the Black Pearl to photograph the Liverpool waterfront. We will be using these photographs to sketch the waterfront and will be comparing the River Mersey to the Yangtze River throughout our China study.

Year 5/6 ESSA National Swimming Finals, by Mrs Horton
Date: 15th Jun 2019 @ 8:47pm
The ESSA National Primary Schools Final took place today at Ponds Forge, Sheffield. We were very proud that our girls medley team qualified for this event. They managed to take 6 secs of their personal best, swimming a combined time of 1:13.54. This placed them at 17th in the country but the top North West school. The competition was very tough and we could not be prouder of how well our girls conducted themselves and performed so well. It was a very long, hot day but all girls were a delight to be with. A huge thank you to the PTA for providing special T-shirt’s and hats. Also thanks to the parents for taking them.
Well done to Zoe, Petra, Eva, Lily and Bea.
