St Peter's WOW Church Welcomes Praise Along to record a fantastic 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.

Year 4 Visit catalyst-September 2023, by Mrs Cavill

Date: 28th Sep 2023 @ 4:43pm

On Tuesday 26th September, Year 4 visited catalyst Science and Discovery centre.

Today, we completed two workshops and had some time to explore the interactive gallery.

One workshop was called Tasty Toothpaste. We looked at the sugar content of some of the everyday things we all eat and drink. We were very surprised at how much sugar was actually in some of our drinks. We made our own toothpaste and tested it, against shop bought toothpaste. They both did a very good job

The other workshop explored proving that gas exists and that is all around us, as it is harder to observe and see it in comparison to solids and liquids.

KS2 Christmas Production, by Miss Hulse

Date: 12th Dec 2022 @ 3:43pm

KS2 performed a fantastic production of Silent Night. 


Silent Night is a delightful children's nativity set in 19th century Austria, where the villagers of Oberndorf are busy preparing for their Christmas Eve pageant. Amidst the hustle and bustle, they realise that naughty mice have destroyed the church organ. How will they organise music for their special celebrations at such short notice?

Discover through this beautifully adapted story how a poem written by a parish priest resulted in the well-loved carol Silent Night.

What a fanatastic day we had yesterday at M6 Theatre. We met many new friends from our Linking school in Heywood and watched a brilliant play called "Sunflowers and Sheds."

Before half term six children from Years Five and Six represented St Peters Church of England Primary School in a cross country event at Fallinge Park High school. The event consisted of lots of primary schools from the Rochdale borough and was a mix of both boys and girls races. The children each ran 2 kilometers on a track that had been set up on Fallinge Park school field. Despite the cold and windy conditions, each pupil performed excellently and they all confidently completed the cross country run within the alloted time. Well done!

Date: 14th Sep 2022 @ 5:00pm

On Tuesday 13th September, we completed two workshops and had some time to explore the interactive gallery at the Catalyst Museum in Widnes.

One workshop was based on, "Being a Scientist". Firstly, we explored stereotypes of what a scientist looked like or did and debunked this. Afterwards we went through some areas of what a scientist does: predict, question, observe and evaluate.

The other workshop was called "Glorious Gases." This workshop looked at proving gases actually exist,even though we can't see them.  We experimented with this, even making a tiny marshmallow grow bigger!

Learn Love and Grow Together Day, by Mrs Cavill

Date: 15th Jul 2022 @ 4:30pm

What a fantastic day we have had today. We went outside in the school grounds to do some Orienteering. This involves following a map and using a compass, to find orange flags hidden in the trees and at the side of the woodland and orchard walks.We also played Bingo and Beetle Drive as well as some other traditional games like Jacks, Pick up sticks and Dominoes. We made bracelets with positive affirmationa and even spent 5 minutes meditating quietly.  4C would like to say thank you to Mrs Stubbs for organsising such a fun day. We learned lots of new skills and lots of new vocabulary.

World Book Day-March 2022, by Mrs Cavill

Date: 7th Mar 2022 @ 3:59pm

On Friday, Year 4 caught up with the rest of the school and we had our World Book Day celebrations.  We started the day with some drama games to get us into working in groups and building our confidence to speak and act. Mrs Freeman gave Year 4 the book, "Voices in the Park," by Anthony Browne. This book is about four gorillas, a mother, a father,a son and a daughter from different backgrounds. We had lots of fun looking at  pictures of the characters and deciding what kind of person they would be, what they would say, how they would talk. We created our own little scenes and acted them out, before we even read the book. Well done 4C, I was very impressed with your group work today. You worked co-operatively and listened realy ell to each other.

Your costumes as always were fantastic-thanks to parents and carers!
