Reading Focus Week/ Author Visit 📚❤

This week, we are celebrating ‘Reading Focus Week’ at St George’s! Throughout this week, the children will participate in various reading activities to promote a love for reading.

To kickstart the week, we invited Roy Bradshaw, a local author, to lead a Key Stage One assembly. He showcased some of the books he had written and read ‘Barley’s Biscuits’ to us. Following the assembly, Roy conducted workshops for Years Two and Three. These workshops focused on his story ‘Konk the White Crocodile,’ and the children had the opportunity to create their own 2D and 3D models of the main character.

REMINDER

It is World Book Day is on Thursday, March 7th. The children can come to school dressed as a book character if they’d like, or they can wear their pyjamas. All children are welcome to bring their favourite book from home.

On 14th March, we are having an Aspirations Day in school!

This event is aimed at inspiring our children to dream big, explore various education paths, and consider different career options.

We have invited over 20 visitors from diverse career backgrounds to share insights about their professions with the children. During the day, the children will participate in hands-on activities related to different jobs.

In addition to this, we are also organising a ‘Careers Fair’ starting around 2:30 pm in the large hall. We invite all parents and carers to join us and interact with professionals from various fields. Light refreshments will be provided, and there’s  a chance the Shropshire Star may even make an appearance!

We look forward to seeing you there!
