British Values ~Equalities Week

I just wanted to share some of the fantastic work the classes have done for our Equalities Week. They looked at different stories such as ‘The Paper Bag Princess’ and ‘Happy in Our Skin’ and then had discussions about stereotyping (what toys do boys play with and what toys do girls play with?) and accepting differences. We alll decided that toys are for EVERYONE!

These issues also linked into Black History Month and so classes learnt about significant people who have made an impact on society, helping to make equal opportunities for everyone. People such as Dianne Abbott MP, author Malorie Blackman, Lilian Bader and Olaudah Equiano. There has been some amazing writing, debating and artistic creations! Well done everyone.

Take a look at the photos of our school display, showing work from each class.

Welcome!

A really big warm welcome back to the start of the Autumn term. I am exceptionally pleased to be back as Headteacher at St George the Martyr and it’s been lovely saying hello to familiar families and meeting new parents too. We have been delighted to welcome all the children back, they have settled into the new routines really well and we are really proud of their positive and cheerful attitudes.

Polite Reminder: Homework will be posted on our blog on a Friday which the teachers will go through with the children on a Wednesday.

With best wishes for a happy healthy term.

Mrs Harris

Headteacher

Royal Albert Hall 2020

Last night the culmination of months of rehearsals for many primary and secondary schools across Camden came to fruition.

We took 21 children to participate in the Camden Schools’ Music Festival. The afternoon was spent rehearsing and bringing the whole event together in readiness for the performance in the evening.

The Royal Albert Hall was packed with families and children all eager to share in the musical experience that took place. There were songs, orchestral pieces, a brass band, a jazz band and a group of students who even had their own record deal. It was such an amazing evening and it was wonderful to be involved as a school.

Thank you to those families who came and supported us for the event and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Look who hatched down in Early Years!

Egg-citing times in Early Years this week! It seems spring is finally on the way – we have welcomed the arrival of four new ducklings. The children were fascinated to see the ducklings hatch from their eggs on Tuesday. It has sparked lots of excellent talk and interesting questions as the children share their observations with each other.

St Paul’s Cathedral Service 2020

A group of children from KS2 had the opportunity to attend the annual St Paul’s school service. The cathedral was full and the service started with representatives from each school parading down the aisle of the cathedral waving banners.

The service was very special and Bishop Sarah Mullally rounded off the whole event by congratulating the schools for such an amazing turnout.

Well done to the children who represented St George’s – they were excellent ambassadors for the school.
