Author visit, by Mrs Bradley

Date: 28th Mar 2024 @ 12:21pm

Following on from our wonderful world book day celebrations, we had a real author visit our school. Sean performed an assembly to all the children in which he read one of his own books and then he carried out a workshop with each class to help them become authors themselves. We are so impressed with the writing and illustrations produced by the children.

World Book Day, by Mr Wood

We all had great fun dressing up as book characters on Thursday 7th March. The day got off to a great start with an assembly where everybody showed their costumes off! We were delighted to find that, thanks to the children’s kind donations, we raised over £247 for Book Aid International. This money will help to pay for books in less economically developed countries.

St Peter's Pebbles Playground Assembly, by Mrs Brandwood

Date: 1st Mar 2024 @ 2:56pm

St Peter's Playground Pebbles lead a fantastic whole school assembly on Tuesday.

The Pebbles explained how they could support children at playtime and lunchtime who are feeling lonely or who are finding it difficult to join in a game. They explained how they will model and use our Christian Values to help everyone have fun when playing outside on our playground. 

In front of the whole school, the Pebbles made their special promise:

A friend to all who need it - for we believe that,

"...if one falls down, his friend can help him up..." 

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.

The group then went onto explain the exciting new games they will be leading each lunchtime and introduce some of our new playground equipment.


Well done to our Pebbles!  You showed great leadership, teamwork, bravery and friendship as you delivered your assembly.  Everyone at St Peter's is very excitied to get outside and play at break and lunchtime!

St Peter's WOW Church Welcomes 'Praise Along' to record a fantastic collective worship song!, by Mrs Brandwood

Date: 1st Mar 2024 @ 2:42pm

On Tuesday, St Peter's enjoyed hosting our Spring Term WOW Church Synod Group meeting.  This meeting was special as we were delighted to welcome Kelly and her team from ‘Praise Along’ to produce an environmentally based collective worship song.  10 children from St Peter’s were joined by children from St John’s Thornham and Milnrow Parish to sing a beautiful song called, ‘Rich Diversity’.  This was a wonderful opportunity for our children and they had a fantastic time singing, performing and recording the song.  It was amazing to hear the collective voices of our group sing out about such an important topic with great enthusiasm! 

Thanks again to Kelly and her Team from ‘Praise Along’ for this opportunity and for members of our diocese for attending and showing their support.  We are looking forward to hearing our song when it is published later this year – watch this space!  


Our WOW Church members would also like to share the prayer we said at the beginning of our meeting to show our gratitude for our wonderful world:


Dear God,

We praise you for the beauty of creation, its richness and variety.

The earth is yours, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

Grant us your grace that we may exercise wise stewardship of this Earth; tread lightly upon it and cherish its resources so that in years to come everyone may enjoy its riches.

Please be with us today as we create this song to help spread the word of how wonderful and diverse your creation is.

Help us to restore and care for this beautiful earth you blessed us with.

Pupils had a wonderful morning planting their broadbean seeds. They raked the soil, dug holes to plant the seeds and sprinkled compost over. They then worked brillantly in pairs to ensure all the seeds had been watered.

Through the knowledge gained in our recent Science topic about plants, the children were able to use scientific vocabuary to discuss how the seeds will grow and what they need to grow

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!

We are photographers!, by Mrs Freeman

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. 

This week we decided to photograph our amazing school grounds. We chose the three categories of;

  • buildings
  • nature
  • play equipment

Have a look at our photographs!

Dancing like Bubbles!, by Mrs Freeman

Date: 24th Nov 2020 @ 4:08pm

Year 2 have been dancing again!

This half term we are learning how to perform a 'bubble dance'. We have watched the way in which bubbles move and we are beginning to float around the room and move in this way. 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!

Peace and Spirituality - Class 2F, by Mrs Freeman

Date: 24th Nov 2020 @ 4:03pm

This term Year 2 have been learning about Christian values and how these can help us in our daily lives. We spent some time discussing the value 'peace' and what this means. We explored our school grounds looking for places that we felt peaceful in and that we could call 'spiritual'. The children have produced some lovely work.

Who we are

We look to provide a safe, secure, stimulating Christian environment in which all our children feel happy and valued as individuals, and where they can learn and play to the best of their abilities, and therefore reach their full potential.
