Class 4 enjoyed a visit from the Schools Library Service today. We had a great session looking at different genres and choosing some new books for our library. A very big 'thank you' to Mrs Andrews for a really enjoyable session.....and hopefully you'll get to see some of their choices when they bring them home to read!
"Roll Up! Roll Up! Come and get your 1/2 price... cheap... reduced... FREE, cakes / DVDs / Books / Lollipops!" What a lovely 'Coffee Afternoon' / Christmas Fair - it was like a mini Apprentice! The children designed some great games, thought about the rules for how to play them, came up with some imperative verbs (STAND here, PICK UP the [...]
Teachers Rock started just over five years ago and I only went along to the first rehearsal due to an evening meeting being cancelled. I had already emailed about the excellent choice of songs they were going to do and I found myself being 'encouraged' to do a solo in Reef's 'Place Your Hands' as a result! Devon's Music Advisor, [...]
Georgeham colours were out in full force at this weekend's Gliddon and Squire Cross Country meet. It's amazing to see the team grow larger at each event - clearly word is spreading about how much 'fun' it is to run around a muddy field on a Sunday morning (for kids) and eat bacon sandwiches (for parents). Elsie L and Myah [...]
We're super proud of the fourteen awesome rock monkeys (previously known as children from Georgeham School) who took part in the South West Inter Schools Climbing Competition at Rock and Rapid this weekend, competing against over 100 children from primary schools across Devon. Kindness. Confidence. Curiosity. Community. Adventure. Ambition. All the school values were on show today as our team [...]
I set class 4 the challenge of thinking about the dreams they thought Pudsey Bear had for children across the country. We wrote in the style of our poem for this unit of work-I am Cat. Whenever I do an activity like this I am always so impressed by how thoughtful, kind and compassionate the children are in our school. [...]
In class 4 we have been using 'I am Cat' by Jackie Morris in our English on a Friday. I was so impressed that someone decided to write her own version at home, not as part of a homework task, but just because she was enjoying the book and wanted to have a go herself. Very ambitious, well done :-) [...]
Class 4 learnt about the SMART rules for keeping safe online. Safe - what should you keep safe? Meeting up... a good idea? Accepting communication? Reliability of information? Tell someone! We also used Purple Mash's "2Publish" to produce comic strips with some of the messages we learnt from Kara, Winston and the Smart Crew. Hope you like Tilly's and Myah's [...]
