Holy Week 8.4.2020
Hello class 8,
I hope you are all enjoying your Easter holidays. The weather was so gorgeous yesterday that I managed to weed my garden with Sophia and Oliver after doing the Joe Wicks PE session. I hope the lovely weather lasts so we can all make the most of our gardens and our daily outside exercise slot.
During the Easter Holidays we will not be putting on any school work for you to complete. However I am putting on our class page some Easter activities for you to do? Remember, do not feel you have to do any of them – it is not supposed to be extra work – it is just a little something to have fun with and to keep you busy if you get a little bored at home. Feel free to involve mum or dad, or anyone else that you live with, in the Easter craft activities.
Stay safe and healthy.
8th April Congratulations!
Well done Ayukarrah, Charlie, Jonathan, Nela, Emma and Shayaan for fantastic blogging and detailed book reviews on My Book Blog I have put 10 house points on pupil rewards for you.
Remember class 8 I am checking your Blogs and reviews and I am going to be awarding house points for super blogs which are answered fully and detailed reviews. Unfortunately I read lots of Blogs which were unanswered and boring reviews. I do not want to see these after the Easter Holidays.
Wednesday 25th March.

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.
Our Lower Junior Team are getting ready for the performance of Roll Back the Stone on the 8th and 10th of April at 2pm. The children have been learning their lines and practising their acting skills. Thank you to all parents who have provided costumes.
Please join us to remember the true meaning of Easter.
Class 8 will be leading worship on Thursday 7th February. The theme will be the celebration of Candelmas. All parents are welcome to join us.
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.

The Lower Juniors are currently rehearsing for their Easter performance called 'Easter Stations'. They will be bringing home song words and script lines to learn so we would be grateful if you could help them to learn these.
Do you know all of your times tables?
How about trying out these online games to help?
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.
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)!
