Pod 4 do maths, by Mrs Roberts

This afternoon, Pod 4 went outside to do some of our maths lesson. We used chalk on the playground to draw large venn diagrams before adding in the multiples of 4 and 6. We decided that both multiplication tables have some common factors. This helped us to solve some tricky questions about fractions when the whole is an unknown. We had great fun!

Virtual Time Capsule, by Mrs Roberts
Date: 22nd May 2020 @ 9:44am
Over the last 8 weeks, we have been gathering photographs and videos to help us create a virtual time capsule. We feel that although this has been a very unusual time, it is something which will go down in history. As a school, we want to remember this so that ,in years to come, we can learn from it. Thank you again to all parents who sent photographs in of children working from home.
We think this really captures 'A day in the life of St. George's during Covid 19'.

St George's Spin Challenge, by Mr Knowles
Date: 14th May 2020 @ 1:54pm
The PE Team at School wanted to have a little bit of fun, set you a challenge and raise a bit of money for charity.
St George's Spin Challenge involves spinning 10 times and then completing a sporting activity such as shooting into a hoop or trying to hit a ball. After you have done your challenge we have suggested donating to the Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Trust by using our link as I am sure we can agree they are doing wonderful things. With a bit of help from some familiar faces we have put together a video with some of our efforts. See if you can recognise anyone!
Now, we want you to get involved at home and complete our spin challenge. This will also help raise some money if you can for some of our brilliant local NHS causes. Let's see how much we can raise and how creative you can be.
If you are want to take part, please make sure you are safe and with an adult as we don't want any injuries.
You can send in any videos for us to see to email@example.com and you can donate by following the link to our justgiving page which is here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stgeorgesspinchallenge .
