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.

Amen

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.

KS2 Christmas Production - Bah Humbug! - December 2019 , by Miss Hulse

Date: 18th Dec 2019 @ 10:04am

KS2 were amazing yesterday, in their Christmas production of Bah Humbug! A fantastic adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

It was Christmas Eve and the miserable, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, found himself visited by some rather unexpected characters! Through encounters with his former partner, Jacob Marley, and three very different ghosts, Scrooge was given the chance to revisit his past, weigh his present and glimpse at his future.

Scrooge took this once-in-a lifetime opportunity to change, and understood the true meaning of Christmas.

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!

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.
