Early years are celebrating World Nursery Rhyme this week, and on Wednesday welcomed families to join in with rhyme related activities, before singing the 5 rhymes from the ‘Rhyme a Day’ challenge. Those rhymes are Baa Baa Black Sheep, Two Little Dicky Birds, Down in the Jungle, Row Row Row Your Boat and Incy Wincy Spider. A big thank you to all who attended.
Our school has launched a Facebook page as another way to keep our school community updated with events in school.
To find the page on Facebook, please type in the FULL school name and look out for our school logo.
We did it!!! Thanks to the dedication of our school community, we have managed to complete our Aldi Kit for Schools Poster. This means that we will be rewarded with some new sports kit and additionally, go into the competition to win £20,000.
Thank you to all parents, staff and children that brought in stickers to complete the poster!
On Friday, children and staff at SS Peter and Paul celebrated the religious festival of Diwali in school by wearing traditional dress, bright clothing and learning about the festival in classes. Traditional refreshments were also on sale to the children and parents at the end of the day.
What a lovely way to end a busy half term! A safe holiday to all and we will see you back at school on Monday 4th November for the start of Parliament week.
On Wednesday, the much anticipated productions of ‘Beowuld’ and ‘Anti-Bullying’ by Year 4 and 5 were performed on stage at the Newhampton Art Centre. The children from both classes have produced the majority of the production themselves: script writing, designing backdrops, stage transitioning and building props. There was also an opportunity to display their work in the exhibition hall.
Both performances were show-stopping and revealed some hidden talents for performing from many children. Thank you to all the parents, family members, governors that attended and supported the pupils. They were truly marvellous and a credit to the school – well done!
On Friday 14th June, Years 3-6 braved the unpredictable weather to participate in many different sporting activities at Aldersley Leisure Village. This culminated in a running event hosted by marathon kids – where the children would do as many laps as possible of the running track in a set time. Each time the children completed a lap – they received a wristband.
I am very proud to announce that SS Peter and Paul children/staff ran a combined 397km (246 miles) in 30 minutes. Well done to all the children, parents and staff who supported and attended this event. Each child received a medal for their efforts and as a bonus met Wolfie!
On Saturday, SS Peter and Paul held a Father’s Day event where dads could take part in lots of different activities with their children. The poor weather didn’t dampen the day, and there were lots of fun activities going on in school.
Thank you to all the families that attended and for Miss Murphy for organising the event.
The children came in their own clothes to raise money for the charity ‘Street Child’. Mrs Murphy is helping raise money for this charity, which will involve her travelling to Sierra Leone as part of her participation in Street Child International Volunteers. £30 sends a child to school for a whole year, £200 would pay for a teacher’s salary for a year and £1000 will fully refurbish a rural school. Mrs Murphy would like to express her thanks to everyone who contributed. Thanks!
