STEM - KAPLA Clubs Visit - 15.02.23 - 16.01.23
27th Feb 2023
Year groups 3, 4 and 5 were visited by KAPLA Clubs, the children had a fantastic opportunity to build on a huge scale using Kapla blocks. Starting with class 3S, the children began building and had 1 hour to construct boats, an octopus and towers. The next classes then came in one by one and continued to build and add to the project, resulting in a 'mini town' with 2 bridges, 2 palaces, 2 giraffes and much more! The children listened carefully to Jennifer's instructions and worked together to create their structures. This developed their skills in communication, engineering, teamwork, perseverance and mathematics. Parents were invited to come along and help during the workshop and then at the end of the workshop, our project was showcased to the whole school and families and eventually demolished!
St George's Matchday Experience - Darlington FC Foundation
24th Nov 2022
On Saturday 19th November, 16 children from St George's who had put their names forward to be selected for the Darlington FC Season Tickets were randomly selected to take part in the Matchday Experience. The children had a great time with the Darlington FC Foundation coaches and got to see Darlo win 4-1 in the FA Trophy. The boys and girls from St George's got to do some football on the pitch before the game, meet Mr Q, wave the flags as the players came out of the tunnel, a free goody bag and lunch and also take penalties in front of the Tin Shed at half time. The boys and girls had a fantastic day and we would like to thank Barry and the foundation for their hospitality and thanks to all the parents who attended and supported.
