Building on all our work on different festivals and celebrations from around the world we looked at how St. George’s Day is celebrated here in England. We enjoyed hearing the story or St. George and the Dragon, and we all agreed that George was very brave.
As we settle back into our school routine it is important that the children have their PE kits in school. It is very important that each item is clearly labelled with your child’s name.
