Class 8 Rules 2017/18- written by children in class 8

Our ‘Golden Rules’

At St. George’s we expect all children to be well behaved and ready to learn. Remember that each new term is a fresh start. Here is a reminder of our school rules so that you know what we expect from you.

  • Treat other people how you would like to be treated.
  • Keep your hands, feet and objects to yourself.
  • Always do as you are told straight away.
  • Play your part in keeping our school clean and tidy.
  • If you have nothing nice to say – say nothing at all.
  • Respect other people and their property.
  • Walk around school quietly, on the left and in single file.

Please practise this Benjamin Zephaniah poem for our class assembly on the 12th October . 

 

 

It would not be very good if you were all the same colour, 
It would not be very good if you all had the same mother, 
It would not be very good if you are from the same place, 
It would not be very good if you all had the same face.
It would not be very good if you all wore the same clothes, 
It would not be very good as every smart kid knows, 
You’re not even the same as your sister or your brother, 
It would not be very good if you were all copies of each other.
I don’t want to get personal, 
Excuse me if I’m rude, 
But It would not be very good if you all ate the same food, 
It would not be very good if you all had the same skin, 
It would not be very good if you all like the same things. 
In my humble opinion we have to learn to share, 
Because life would be quite strange if we all had the same hair. 
We should celebrate our difference the world is full of different people, 

But even though were different, 
We should all be treated equal.

Do you know all of your times tables?

How about trying out these online games to help?

Homework

 

Homework is handed out every Monday and needs to be completed by the following Friday.

Thank you for taking the time to work with your children to complete it at home. 

 

 

Reading

 

It is really important that children are reading as much as possible at home! Our reading display records how many times children have read each week. The first person to reach the end of the road wins a special prize. 

REMEMBER! You must hand your book in every Monday morning so Miss Davis can update it and so you can claim your 5 House points!

 

 

 

For our Literacy and Creative Curriculum, we have been learning about the Stone Age which has included reading Stig of the Dump as our class book. We have then been able to use our inference skills to get to know Stig better and we have used similes, metaphors and fronted adverbials to be able to write a creative piece of extended writing.  

 

In our RE work, we have been thinking about the important promises that are made for us during Baptism and what these mean for us as we grow older. We know now how important a promise is and what they mean for us. 

 

In our Science lessons, we have been learning lots about our bodies, in particular our bones and muscles! Did you know that there are 300 bones in a child's body but we have less by the time we are adults (206)!
