Year 2 had a wonderful trip to Communitree to learn about plants and pollination, as part of this term’s Science topic.

2F's Class Worship - Acts of Service, by Mrs Freeman

Date: 13th Jun 2022 @ 2:43pm

2F delivered a FANTASTIC class worship to the school and parents, all about ACTS OF SERVICE! We discussed what 'service' means, and explored the following questions:

  • Do you need to have a job to serve?
  • Do you only serve important people?
  • Can we serve our parents even though they are older than us?
  • How did Jesus serve us?
  • How can we serve God?

We joined together to pray and to reflect on our big question,  'How can we serve one another?'

It was a thoughtful worship, and we are all very proud of all the pupils in 2F.

Well done!

Mrs Freeman has been amazed by the children's photography skills this week in computing! The children have been looking at what makes a quality photograph. We have discussed taking photographs at different angles, such as 'birds eye view' and had a go at doing this ourselves.

  • buildings
  • nature
  • play equipment

This week our focus word was 'connecting'. We worked in pairs and groups to use our bodies to connect in different ways. We connected using our elbows, knees, backs and many other ways. Some of the children started to put their ideas into a dance routine. We are looking forward to us all being able to do this! Watch this space!

However, Alfred Nobel turned his wrongs into rights by creating 'The Nobel Peace Prize'. We discussed how we can turn our wrongs into rights and how we can spread positivity. We made our very own 'Positivity Potions'. In them we added;

STEM day presentations - November 2019, by Miss Hulse

Date: 30th Nov 2019 @ 8:32am

Yesterday afternoon, all of the children at St Peter’s took part in a STEM day challenge. The children had to use all of their science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills to produce a working marble run. The degree of difficulty got progressively challenging throughout school years, starting with nursery creating a simple structure using Lego up to Year 6 introducing a pulley stystem. Once the marble runs were completed, each class held a vote to choose their most successful marble run, these were then sent to the hall ready to be judged. The winners were then selected from EYFS, KS1, LKS2 and UKS2, the winners then received their very own marble run. All of the children should be proud of their achievements, as they all worked extremely hard throughout the day!
