The final day of term

Well this has been a very strange year indeed! Today is the last day of the Summer term and the last day of your journey with St. Peter’s. However this is not the end, we would love to keep in touch with you all and you are always welcome! You will always be members of the St. Peter’s family 🙂

Enjoy your Summer holidays before you move on to your new school. Make sure you stay safe and have fun 🙂

I’ve added a little reading challenge for you to have a go at over the Summer to keep your minds engaged and to help you enjoy lots of different stories!

Good luck in September Year 6 🙂

Art challenge

Good morning Year 6 🙂

During Lockdown, I have seen quite a few of my friends sharing photos of their children’s artwork and I was so impressed with how well they were drawn! Then I was told about some Youtube videos called ‘How To Draw A….’ – after watching a few myself, I had to have a go! These videos show you a step-by-step tutorial on how to draw a range of different things, from waterfalls, to bikes, to parrots! The artist draws alongside his young son to show you from a child’s perspective too 🙂

I’ve attached a link to his video on ‘How To Draw A Waterfall’ for you to have a go at, but remember to ask an adult for help when using a site such as Youtube. There are lots of other video tutorials from the same artist that you could have a go at too 🙂

Send us a photo your completed artwork to superlearner@st-peters-farnworth.bolton.sch.uk – I can’t wait to see it!

Literacy challenge

Good morning Year 6 🙂

For your Literacy challenge this week, I would like you to write a poem. Reflect on your time at St Peter’s and think about all the fun, exciting, challenging and rewarding times you have had here. I’m sure you have so many memories of your time at our school and a poem is a lovely way to record how you are feeling right now for you to read in the future.

You can choose what kind of poem you would like to write. Perhaps you’d like to write an acrostic poem, or maybe a limerick, or it could be a poem that rhymes. Maybe you’d like to write a free verse poem! It’s entirely up to you 🙂

Please send your finished poems to us at superlearner@st-peters-farnworth.bolton.sch.uk – all of your teachers would love to read them 🙂

Hello Year 6 🙂

I have attached the resources for this week’s Picture News for you.

Musical challenge

Good morning Year 6 🙂

I have a crafty challenge for you today!

I’d like you to have a go at making your own musical instrument, using materials you’d find in your house like cardboard boxes and elastic bands. I’ve attached some images below to give you some inspiration.

Think about the instrument you’d like to make and what genre of music your instrument might be used in. Could you create an instrument used in samba music? Or perhaps in classical music? Or maybe rock music? It’s entirely up to you! See if you can take a video of you using your instrument and send it over to us at superlearner@st-peters-farnworth.bolton.sch.uk – we would love to see it 🙂
