Darwin’s Legacy in Stiperstones

Stiperstones are learning about the legacy left by the Darwin family, including the origins of St George’s School (which was founded by Charles Darwin’s sister, Caroline!)

We have considered the impact the school had on the local community in 1824 and the difference the school has made over the years to local children.

World book day at St George’s- Lawley

On Thursday 7th March, all children at St George’s took part in world book day. This was a lovely day celebrated by all and it was fantastic to see so many family members come into school to celebrate with the children.

 

As part of world book day every class decorated their door as a book cover. We also had children dressed up in fantastic costumes, lots of pictures of children reading in unusual places and world book day activities all throughout the day.

 

 

This years theme was ‘read your way’ and it really emphasises the work we have been doing as school on reading for pleasure and how important books can be for our children.

 

 

The children and adults really enjoyed the day and we look forward to welcoming family members into school for more community days in the future.

Thank you for all the Foodbank donations from our Harvest Festival.
There are bags and bags and bags!

The Foodbank are very grateful. We will be helping lots of local families who are in need of extra food.

Year 6 eco and school council pupils helped load up Mrs Sequeira’s car with all the bags. They just about fitted.

The foodbank workers had a big job sorting it all out ready for distribution.

Year 6 are learning about Blues music. 
They have been learning the structure of the ukulele chords in 12 bar blues and are writing their own blues lyrics.

Quite a few children chose to sing the SATs blues!

“Oh, it’s nearly May and we have got to do SATs

oh, it’s nearly May and we have got to do SATs

We wish we could just sit with our friends for chats”

Easter Bunny Spotted by Stiperstones

Stiperstones spotted a visitor today… the Easter Bunny!

The illusive white rabbit was leaving clues for our Easter egg hunt today! We carefully approached her and asked for a picture. Rabbits can be shy… but this one was very friendly!

Choir Show

 Choir put on a wonderful performance of The Piper on Monday.

They sang brilliantly – altogether, in groups and some solos.

They told the tale of how the Piper got rid of the rats from Hamelin, but because the mayor wouldn’t pay, the Piper then took away the children too.

Remember the moral – Always keep your promise!

 

The Villagers

The mayor, councillors and the piper
