Sad News

Good morning everyone, I trust you are all well.  It is with my greatest sadness that I am informing you, our trip to Robinwood has been cancelled.   

You have all been so amazing over the last few months and a trip would have been a fantastic reward.  However, a trip like Robinwood is jam packed with activities that require a lot of social interaction and getting close to each other, and the instructors/teachers.   We would not be able to use the climbing wall, sit in the giant swing together, go in the canoes! In fact it would be impossible to enjoy the trip at all if we were keeping 2 metres apart.  

The teachers are all gutted for you because this would have been amazing.  

But…there is NO trip or experience that is worth more than you and your families.  So, we’re keeping safe xx 

I will be sending out an text to your parents regarding refunds on Tuesday 19th May.  

Once again – we are all so sorry for this.

Take care,

Mrs Buckley and Mr Lane.

Rap Challenge…

As you know a couple of year ago I was presented with an award from one of our previous pupils – Emilio – for beating Mr Lane in a rap battle! Therefore, I must be very musical!

Presently, due to the lock-down, many music producers and artists are producing their own music, in their own homes! Could you produce your own ‘lock-down’ rap/song?

There are many apps available for free – why don’t you see if you can produce your own piece of music? Send it to me and I’ll upload to our Youtube channel. You could even just sing your own rap – a Capella style!

Happy rapping!

Good Morning Year 6

So, when we had a baking challenge – so many of you concocted some fantastic creations. Why don’t you see if you can create a savoury masterpiece too? It could be a pasta dish, some homemade bread, something Mediterranean! Have a go at producing something super tasty for your family and either send your photos to me or to the super learner shout out page!

Try some of the things from here if you’re stuck for ideas: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/category/family-kids

Happy cooking.

You all make us so proud.

So this week we would have been undertaking our SATs.   This would have been an opportunity for you all to demonstrate how hard you have worked whilst you have been at St Peter’s.   It would have been a really hard week, but very rewarding.   However, that’s not meant to be.   You are part of history as the first cohort to have not sat the tests.   This year will be remembered for ever and when you are older you will look back on this time and you’ll be able to tell your own children the stories!

Mr Lane and I are extremely proud of you all and for all your hard work.   Enjoy the week at home with your family and hopefully we will be back together soon.

VE Day 8th May

So what will you be doing today? Are you planning on having a celebration at home? Do you know why people are celebrating?

You can find out more about VE day here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/48201749

There are so many things you could do today if you want to capture the moment.

  1. You could interview a grandparent who may have lived through WW11 (over the phone/through facetime);
  2. You could research something from that era – such as planes/transport/clothing/food;
  3. You could make a tasty WW11 themed cake/lunch;
  4. You could make a some bunting to put up in your garden or the front of your house;
  5. You could make a time capsule!

Mrs Hobson has made an apron 1940’s style for one of her neighbours check it out…

Evie has made a VE day box for her Great Nana Sylvia (she has sent a photo – I’m having problems uploading!)

I am going to pinch Evie’s idea and deliver afternoon tea plates for all my elderly neighbours. I have made cheesecake and scones and I’m going to add some pre bought cupcakes!

Post your VE day activities so we can all see what you’ve been up to! Happy 75th VE day anniversary.
