The Summer Term has been yet another busy one for Pine class. Through activities across the curriculum, the children have developed their learning attitudes and demonstrated commitment, confidence, curiosity, enthusiasm, independence and respect. We have loved our 'Ancient Egypt' topic and enjoyed our extended home-learning project about pyramids, with some fantastic, creative models decorating the hall, which parents came to admire.
We helped Mr Girling, our new teacher, to quickly settle into life at St. George's for the Summer Term. It was fabulous to be chosen as the class in school to benefit from a local metal work artist, who worked with us to create some amazing metal flowers, which we displayed for Purbeck Arts Week.
We have also been lucky enough to receive free coaching sessions from the Swanage Tennis Club coach, and three of our girls came 2nd in the tennis competition against other local primary schools. Well done, girls! The Daily Mile has also been keeping us fit and active.
Sports Day, although very hot, was a highlight of the Summer Term and we cheered on some great performances from children in the class. Well done to the winning House - Winspit!
Some of our budding actresses are currently busy rehearsing for 'St. George's has got Talent' show, which is coming up very soon. Other events to look out for include our annual whole school 'Jump Rope for Heart' sponsorship event. Busy, busy!
