As part of World Book Day celebrations, the children in EYFS have been demonstrating their love of snuggling in their pyjamas and sharing a good book by wearing their pyjamas to school.
On Thursday 12th March the children took part in a sponsored walk for Sports Relief.
Children in years 4/5/6 walked to Toddbrook Reservoir to coincide their walk with British Science Week. The children set off first thing in the morning and spent the day at the reservoir and completed science activities whilst there.
Children in EYFS and years 1/2/3 took part in a local walk along the Sett Valley Trail in the afternoon.
Altogether the children raised a massive £538!
We are so proud of them. Well done St George’s.
The children had a the fantastic opportunity of meeting footballer Jamie Knight. They got to see him perform his skills and use their own in a football themed afternoon.
If you have a few minutes over the holidays, please pick up a book and read. After all, you never know where it might take you!
I Opened a Book
By Julia Donaldson
I opened a book and in I strode.
Now nobody can find me.
I’ve left my chair, my house, my road,
My town and my world behind me.
I’m wearing the cloak, I’ve slipped on the ring,
I’ve swallowed the magic potion.
I’ve fought with a dragon, dined with a king
And dived in a bottomless ocean.
I opened a book and made some friends.
I shared their tears and laughter
And followed their road with its bumps and bends
To the happily ever after.
I finished my book and out I came.
The cloak can no longer hide me.
My chair and my house are just the same,
But I have a book inside me.
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!
