Welcome to St George’s Online Library
At St George’s, we are passionate about promoting a love of reading. We enjoy story time everyday in our classes and staff even spend time throughout the year swapping classes for story time so they are able to enjoy sharing a book with other children in school.
We have a group of Key Stage 2 children who form our reading team. They work closely with Mrs O’Brien to support children with their reading across school. They are in charge of running our school library and later this year they will talk to school about things like World Book Day, as well as other competitions and reading activities they have planned.
Here, you will find resources and web links to support your reading for pleasure at home. You will also see regular updates of what we have been up to in school!
World Book Day 2023
We have had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day! Class 11 started the day with a fantastic assembly and quiz. Then, in our classes decorated t-shirts with our favourite stories and had the chance to share our favourite books with our class. In KS2, children had the chance to write and publish their own stories, keep your eyes peeled as soon you will be able to purchase them. Finally, we really enjoyed sharing in a story time with a different teacher in school. Take a look at what we got up to:
Virtual Visit from S.F. Said!
We have had a fantastic afternoon listening and talking to S.F Said – author of Varjak Paw and Phoenix. He inspired us all to persevere with our own writing adventures and gave us hints and tips on how to get into writing a new story idea. We have copies of his books on our shelves at school and study Varjak Paw in year 5 and 6!
