St George’s Community Garden Workshop, by Mrs Cameron-Ivanov

Date: 7th May 2022 @ 11:59am

This weekend we had a lovely morning establishing our school community garden. The weather was kind!

We were joined by parents, carers and children from year groups 2 and 3.

Tasks for the morning included, planting pollinators, making wigwams for our sweet peas and beans, digging out and replanting potatoes, building a bird bath, planting a variety of fruit and veg from strawberries to broccoli, courgette to rhubarb and lettuce to tomatoes.

We have also sown a variety of seeds, including carrots, beetroot, onion, spring onion, radish, cauliflower and kale.

Year 4 gardening club and top site dragon club will be maintaining the garden by making sure our plants are well fed and watered throughout the summer term.

We can’t wait to see how our garden develops and enjoy the fruits of our labour!

Science Week Commences..., by Mr Nathan

Date: 14th Mar 2022 @ 8:58pm

Children of 6E ventured to Lower Site to seek help for their Science Week activity - they were looking to collect a data sample to figure out whether boys and girls of the same age have a larger handspan. For this they had to accumulate a large enough sample of data - over 100 handspans from EYFS children should suffice.

Lucas (6E) stated: 'It was great working with the younger children. They listened beautifully and helped us with our research.'

Throughout this week, 6E will be analysing the sample by calculating the average-sized handspan for an F2 boy and girl. Even though there is plenty of mathematics involved, the children cannot wait to feed back to the children in F2.

Heidi (6E) said, 'They were asking all sorts of great questions about our work. They were really trying to justify their opinions.'

It was lovely for both sets of children to come together - the eldest and some of the youngest children in the school. 

'We cannot wait to come again. It was really interesting and fun to work with F2. They learned from us and we learned from them,' said Gracie (6E).
