Welcome to St George's website. Please take a look at your child's class pages to see what they will be learning about this term.

Autumn 2 2021-22

This half term the focus of our learning challenge is geography where we will be answering the question, 'What is the impact of our angry Earth?'

This is an important question and very relevant to the current climate change conference COP26. COP26.jpg

We started our learning by discussing the words 'emergency' and 'disaster' and compared the two of them. We talked about our own experiences of these words and looked at some photograph examples. 

This is quite a creative learning challenge and we will be using many of our Building Learning Powers to research and present our learning. At the end of the term we are going to have an art gallery showcasing our 3D forms of natural disasters. We are looking forward to working collaboratively with our tables to create a mixed media sculpture of a natural disaster using recycled materials. Please look out for an invite in December.

Please click the box to find out more about what we are learning in other subjects this half term too.

WORSHIP WINDOW

We have been working as a class to plan what we would like our worship area to look like for this half term. We decided we would like the school vision statement written on the window. We all contributed to colouring in the lettering and making a stained glass window effect.

AMAZING artwork with Mrs Taylor

We created some fantastic seismograph patterns using watercolours. Seismographs record the strength of an earthquake.

It was a very interesting lesson as our partners wobbled our papers to imitate an earthquake.

Beginning our research pages in ART 

We started our research pages looking at examples of earthquake mixed media pictures by a variety of artists. We explored different ways of using art mediums to re-create some of the images. Aren't they splendid!!

REMEMBRANCE DAY 11/11

We looked at the poem In Flanders Field and reflected on the words and meanings. We made a link with our value of compassion and thought about how courageous the victims of war were. We also made our own poppies to wear with pride.

ANTI-BULLYING WEEK

We started off the week with 'Odd Socks Day' and designed our own odd socks. We wrote about why we were wearing odd socks and some key vocabulary linked to this week. We listened to the song 'One Kind Word' from Andy and the Odd Socks and looked at the lyrics. It was a very catchy song!

We also thought about the message of one kind word and during our circle time we passed around a ball of string to say one kind thing to someone in the circle. We ended up with a spider's web once we had shared our kind words around the group!

CHECK OUT OUR DISASTEROUS LEARNING CHALLENGE HOMEWORK!!!!!!

As part of our choice board homework, many of decided to create board games for others to play linked to natural disasters. They thought about the rules and made the game look really fantastic. There were no disasters playing the games as they were all absolutley fabulous. Very proud of the creativity and imagination.

We have also been making volcanoes at home using recycled materials. These are very impressive!!

SCIENCE LESSON- TEETH

 

We had a great science lesson where we were making links between teeth and skulls. We had to decide what animal it was and what they ate based on the different types of teeth in the skull. Mr Kilpatrick brought in some animal skulls for us to look carefully at and think about whether they were carnivores, herbivores or omnivores.

We also practised brushing our own teeth. We used a disclosing tablet to brush off any plaque that was still left on our teeth and gums. It turned our tongues PINK!!!

CHRISTMAS MEASURING HOOPS

For our Christmas hoops designs for the hall we had a great but challenging time creating Christmas trees. We used some branches we had left over from our bird feeders and used them as the Christmas tree stump. We carefully had to measure 2cm in width for each branch but change the lengths so that it got shorter the higher up it went. It was a challenge but we persevered and got to decorate them afterwards.

They look great hanging up in the hall.

CHRISTMAS ENTERPRISE STALL

We had such an enjoyable time making our cookies, reindeer noses and decorated biscuits for the Christmas stall in the hall on Friday.

We followed the ingredients to make the cookies and used our imaginations to design interesting creations on the bisuits.

We also made some hot chocolate with whipped cream to sell on the stall too. We had a busy but great time.

CLASS TRIP TO THE SYNAGOGUE AND TEMPLE

On Thursday 16th December we went to the Synagogue in Gatley and enjoyed loooking around the place of worship we had been learning about in our RE lessons. It was really interesting to see the features and get to wear the kippah and tallit. The people who showed us round were very impressed with our knowledge. When we finished our visit to the Synagogue we had a quick lunch and play in Chorlton Water Park. The swing was a particular favourite for all. After we had lunch, we went to the Hindu Temple. We took off our shoes and listened to information about the origins of Hinduism and some of the traditions. It was a beautiful building and captured all our senses. The colours of the murtis were very vibrant and we could smell the insence sticks burning. We heard the bell ring when someone came to pray. As we left, we were given a gift of food which was very kind of them. It was a good trip and a super end to our learning about how light is a symbolism of many faiths.
