Home Learning for 16th October
Research periscopes. I know this was set two weeks ago but a few of you have not completed the work to an acceptable standard. This is a really important piece of research as it will help you with your hot write. Please find out about the first periscopes, different types, where they can be found, how they work, a diagram showing the mirrors, and any fun facts you can find. You must be able to explain how they work. This means no laser beam eyes! How does the light get reflected into the user's eyes?
Deepening Understanding website . You should have a log in stuck in your book. Please follow the instructions and complete the work set for you. There will be a reading comprehension and grammar. It may have a different year group on. Don't worry about this. We have some lockdown gaps we need to fill.
I I have added some new Mathletics for you to try if you get time after the other work or if for any reason you can't access the New Website.
Please ask if you're not sure.

Welcome to the Autumn Term.
It feels great to be back.It's a little different but we have all settled in quickly. We have started our topic 'Around the World' and are looking forward to our first visitors from Colchester United and the Tendring Ambassador project in the next few weeks. This really is my favourite topic. If you have any traditional items from other countries that you are willing to lend us that would be really helpful. The class set off on day 1 to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to set the scene for our class reader 'Refugee Boy' by Benjamin Zephaniah.
Year 6 Leavers Assembly - Wednesday 22nd July 2020
Finally, the day arrived, the children of Year 6 would be leaving St. George's to move on to the next stage of their lives. Unfortunately their last term was not what was envisaged for them. Rather than dwell on what could not happen, it was decided to celebrate what had happened. The children spent the morning at school: playing football rounders; sorting out their work and books; watching the memories video put together by Mrs Donnelly and having pizza for lunch.
In the afternoon their loved ones came to school to enjoy a socially distanced assembly on the field - luckily the weather was kind. Each child was presented with their leavers hoodie, school pen set and their holding cross (from St. George's Church). Then, as each family left not a dry was to be had as we thought back over what an amazing group of children we were sending off to high school.
Year 6, have a fabulous summer, enjoy high school, make the best of the opportunities presented to you and be yourself always!
Mrs Brincklow, Mrs Donnelly, Mrs Haynes and the Staff of St. George's

This term, in Class 4, our topic has been Stone Age. We started the term with a trip, to BarleyLands Farm, for an activity day based around Stone Age life. The activities included a talk on Stone Age animals; looking at the animals; making Stone Age bread and stew. We came away with the bread and stew, which was helpful as we got stuck on the A12 for along time due to a traffic incident.
In class we have made Stone Age houses, working together in groups and using natural materials found in the school grounds. We then experimented with different foods and tie-dying of fabrics. We used red cabbage (adding vinegar and bicarbonate of soda as alkaline and acid), beetroot, turmeric and red onion. Some of the results were amazing but unfortunately the school smelt of boiled cabbage.
