St George’s make history at Vale Park, by Mrs Walters

Date: 5th Jun 2019 @ 12:01pm

Children at St George’s made history today when they took part in a very special time capsule burial.

The time capsule, which included pieces of work and photographs from four Wallasey schools, was buried in the memorial garden (formerly the rose garden) in Vale Park, New Brighton.

Members of St George’s eco council in year 6 joined pupils from Greenleas, SS Peter and Paul’s and New Brighton Primaries for the event on Wednesday.

The capsule will be dug up in 50 years time and we hope some of our children will be there to see it opened!

St George's Day Final Arrangements, by Mrs Walters

Date: 17th Apr 2019 @ 3:44pm

Plans for St George’s Day have now been finalised and we hope as many families and friends as possible will join us to celebrate with our parade and field event.

Children are invited to wear red and white for the day and lower site pupils will be walking to upper site before lunch to enjoy a whole school picnic.

This will be provided by school and will include a sandwich, sausage roll, biscuit and drink. If your child would prefer their own packed lunch you are welcome to provide it but please remember no nut products or sweets.

At 1.30pm the children will leave upper site and parade down Sandy Lane and along St George’s Road with their flags, shields and other accessories. At Mayfield Road years 5 and 6 will turn left and head back to upper site while F2 to year 4 continue onto lower site.

School will close early on that day, at 2.30pm, to allow families to go to upper site for a celebration event. The event will finish by 6pm.  We plan on having live music, food, a drinks tent, games, bouncy castles etc.  There will be some charges for games and refreshments.

Dragon Club will operate as normal on this day. We hope to see as many people as possible lining the parade route and joining us at upper site from 2.30pm. 

 

Lyrics for the St George's Day song , by Pickering

Date: 16th Apr 2019 @ 3:09pm

There was a brave knight long ago,
Long ago, Long ago.
There was a brave knight long ago,
Long ago.

There was a dragon in his cave,
In his cave, in his cave.
There was a dragon in his cave,
Long ago.

St. George went riding on his horse,
On his horse, on his horse.
St. George went riding on his horse
To the cave.

The dragon roared and breathed out fire,
Breathed out fire, breathed out fire.
The dragon roared and breathed out fire,
At St. George.

St. George did stab him with his sword
In his heart, in his heart.
St. George did stab him with his sword,
Long ago.

.
George set the princess free at last,
Free at last, free at last,
George set the princess free at last,
Free at last.

So, everybody’s happy now,
Happy now, happy now,
So, everybody’s happy now,
Long ago.

Road Safety Week , by Miss Gough-Hughes

Date: 25th Nov 2018 @ 10:56am

Road Safety Week

Throughout the week, children at St George’s have been recognising and celebrating road safety week. The focus of road safety week this year was bike safety and how children can stay safe on the roads, especially when riding their bikes. Each class has done some work around bike safety, understanding what is essential when riding bikes: wearing helmets, wearing sensible shoes, having a reflector on the bike, ensuring the bike is the right size etc. Children in foundation stage designed and coloured their own bike to celebrate road safety week. Children in years 1 and 2 investigated what materials would be best to make a bike helmet, discussing how a helmet is strong and sturdy to protect us on the road. Children in years 3 and 4 designed their own reflector which would be suitable to use when riding a bike. They also discussed the importance of reflectors when riding a bike. Children in years 5 and 6 designed and made their own moving vehicle, looking at how bikes move safely. To finish all of the fantastic work the children completed around road safety, we celebrated with a road safety breakfast. Children enjoyed a pastry and drink of juice before school. Well done to all children for participating and working so hard throughout the week. The children are all experts at road safety! Here are some pictures of our road safety breakfast:
