The children created these stunning masterpieces, in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, using only natural materials.
The children took part in this competition, which celebrates fishing responsibly, while also thinking about conservation of the seas and beaches.
Here are a selection of the posters chosen to go onto the Sea Angling website, where people could vote for their favourite poster.
These are the four winning designs, chosen by St Peter’s:
These are the posters that polled the most amount of votes on the Sea Angling website!
Huge congratualtions to them and everyone else who took part.
Artist Wayne Thiebaud’s iconic cake paintings sparked our Year 5’s interests! Our classroom
was transformed into a bakery! They
drew a cake that looked 3D and then coloured the cake’s
outline with bright oil pastels. The children then “frosted” their
cake with paint that was thickly applied with a plastic knife. They couldn’t believe how much the paint’s texture
looked like real frosting!
The children did observational drawings and paintings of slices of citrus fruit. Not only did the art work turn out to be amazing, but the classroom smelled delightful too!
In Year 6, at St Peter’s, we have been learning about Archbishop Oscar Romero. He worked in El Salvador. He spoke out against poverty and social injustice in the country. He spoke up for people who were getting no help or who could not speak up for themselves. He told the world about the terrible things that were happening in the country. He even went to Rome to tell the Pope.
In his sermon on 23 March 1980, Romero ordered the army to stop killing people: “In the name of God, and in the name of this suffering people whose cries rise to heaven more loudly each day, I beg you, I implore you, I order you, in the name of God, stop the repression!” The next day, a shot killed Romero as he said Mass. A UN report later found that Major Roberto D’Aubuisson, had ordered Romero’s death. Thousands came to the funeral.
The Year 6 children created their Romero crosses thinking about their life at St Peter’s, their new secondary school, their families and the church community.
Each cross is unique to the child who created it.
These crosses will be a gift to St Peter’s, from the Year 6 children, as a way of giving thanks for all they have learnt, while being pupils there.
The crosses will be blessed at the Year 6 Leavers Mass and will then be distributed among the classes at St Peter’s, for them to use in their class worship and liturgies.
“Walking hand in hand with God to make our world a better place”
Here are just a small sample of the amazing crosses the children made. Each one has been carefully and thoughtfully crafted.
Thank you Year 6, what a wonderful gift to our school…we will cherish them!
The Year 4 children learnt about the firflies of Australia and then, using this knowledge, created their ‘Dusk Explorer’ pictures. The pictures show the silhouettes of people who have spent the evening gleefully ctaching fireflies in jar and using them as a light source.
I think they look tremendous…don’t you?
The talented Year One artists created these cute penguins, as part of their study about Antarctica. The children then paraded them onto the field for our Carnival of the World.
Which penguin is the cutest?…..You decide!
Here is just a small selection of the sensational stamps that the children created.
Our school is delighted to be taking part in Royal Mail’s Heroes Stamp Design Competition,
honouring the heroes of the coronavirus pandemic.
Eight pupils from primary and secondary schools across the UK will become the designers
of this stamp set, and one could be a child from St Peter’s!
- Eight designs will be chosen for this stamp series from Royal Mail.
- One of the designs could be yours.
- Her Majesty The Queen will approve the winning stamp designs before they are printed and issued.
- There are 120 great prizes on offer for area winners and runners up.
- Plus, cash prizes for the winning schools too.
We will be designing and creating our stamps, in school, during our Art lessons. However, there is nothing stopping you think about your stamp design and even having a practise at home. Please feel free to bring any ideas and artwork, linked to this exciting competition, to your next art lesson
Who is your hero?

- Many other groups of people such as vaccine scientists, military personnel and food bank volunteers have also worked non-stop to keep the country moving.
- A family member who has helped you.
We read the Dr Seuss book, One Fish, Two Fish……
……we then created our own fish, in the style of Dr Seuss, using chalk pastels and oil pastels. Year 1 concentrated SO well and the finished work is splendid.
The children learnt about Bandi Chhor Divas (“Day of Liberation”) and how it is important to the Sikh religion. The children then created dioramas and included a Gurdwara, which is a Sikh place of worship. The really enjoyed creating their dioramas and the end results are an absolute delight!
