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.

Poetry

All of our CDAT schools will have the same poem to study each week. 

The children from each class will explore it, watch a performance of it and have fun with it!

We are excited for our children to share our love of poetry.  

We will also be holding a poetry writing competition where the winning entries will be included in a book which will be given out to each CDAT school.

Please encourage your child to talk to you about our poem of the week.

Our first poem we will share across the school is 'On the Ning Nang Nong' by Spike Milligan.

Our second Poem is 'If' by Rudyard Kipling

'if' by rudyard kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you 
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, 
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, 
But make allowance for their doubting too; 
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, 
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies, 
Or being hated, don't give way to hating, 
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master, 
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim; 
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster 
And treat those two impostors just the same; 
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken 
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, 
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, 
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings 
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss, 
And lose, and start again at your beginnings 
And never breathe a word about your loss; 
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew 
To serve your turn long after they are gone, 
And so hold on when there is nothing in you 
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, 
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch, 
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, 
If all men count with you, but none too much; 
If you can fill the unforgiving minute 
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, 
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, 
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

 

 

 

Year 5

Year 5 have created some poetry linked to their class text 'The Barnabus Project'. They looked at an image of the city and created a descriptive poem which Pip the cockroach could use to tell Barnabus, who is trapped in an underground laboratory, what the outside world is like. They collaborated in groups to devise their poems which they are all very proud of. Here are some examples:
