Year 4 Science - Living Things, by Mrs Palmi
Date: 22nd Sep 2023 @ 2:34pm
In year 4 this half-term, we are looking at ways of classifying living things. We had great fun asking closed questions to try and guess what animal was hiding behind our backs. This helped us to think about good questions that would classify our animal. We then learnt how to make a classification key by asking questions about our own classes.
We have been so impressed by the amount of children who have chosen to complete the limitless learning task and we now know so many new species of living things that have been discovered!

What would you have done? ??

Fantastic Florals at RHS Flower Show, Tatton Park, by Miss M Jones
Date: 22nd Jul 2023 @ 7:45pm
Back in February, St. George's were successful in our application to display at Tatton Park's annual flower show - RHS Flower Show Tatton Park.
The hard work began: researching, desgining, planting and building galore! Our garden was a wondrous delve into the mystical, literary world of J. R. R. Tolkien, and included aspects from two of his most famous works, The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings. With expert guidance from Miss J Jones and Miss Pickering, we decided that our garden should be a biodiverse haven: attracting as many different species of wildlife as possible. With funds we had raised, we were able to source verbena, cosmos, germanium, chamomile, salvia, grasses, echinacea, sanguisorbe, achillea, rubeckea, borage, stock and lobelia to make our design a reality! We also procured the skills of local artist, Barry Canning-Eaton (Mermaid Trail sculptor) to construct a flower-breathing dragon of epic proportions!
RHS Flower Show is on at Tatton until 5pm Sunday 23rd July. If you're able to pop along, make sure you keep a look out for our display behind the Schools Tent!

A group of children from Years 3 and 4 had a fantastic day at Royal Liverpool Golf Course in Hoylake, watching some of the world’s best golfers prepare for The Open later this week.
The children enjoyed watching the practice rounds, as well as watching the golfers prepare on the driving range, chipping and putting green.The children also visited the Swingzone and received expert coaching and advice from the Golf Foundation, learning all about putting and chipping.
Throughout the day, we even managed time to grab autographs and pictures with professional golfers such as Tyrrell Hatton, Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnson and many more!
All of the children represented St George’s brilliantly throughout the day. They are all now looking forward to watching the event unfold across the weekend to see who will lift the trophy on Sunday!

20 mph zones, by Mr Cassidy
Date: 13th Jul 2023 @ 3:54pm
We were delighted to see the introduction of new 20mph zones outside both schools. This is a continuation of our extensive road safety campaign.
Mr Cassidy commented;
"This is a welcome step. At school times there is a huge increase in traffic in this area. With four local secondary schools and St George's in a one-kilometre radius, there are over five thousand pupils on the move at peak times. This will help to keep everybody safer".
Bonnie in year 5 stated, “I definitely feel better. This means I can cross the road safely”.
Nicholas in year 5 added, “This is good news. It will reduce crashes and let us walk home and feel safe”.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents research shows 20 miles per hour spped limits can:
- Reduce collisions by up to 40%
- Significantly reduce risk of death and serious injury.

What a brilliant way to end our school year!
In our Year 4 showcase, our children were able to talk to you all about the learning they have taken part in this year.
The children showcased a wide range of knowledge and skills, including ukulele performances, art exhibitions, poetry readings and Roman battle formations. They were able to use their fantastic oracy skills to explain key aspects of their learning.
We were thrilled to see how many of our parents and carers were able to come and celebrate with us, so we would like to thank you very much for making the time to come today.
We are so proud of our Year 4 children and we hope you can see how much effort they have put into all of their learning this year.
