Time for a well-earned break…

After a short but demanding term, we are all looking forward to enjoying a week of rest and recovery. Sadly, Friday was the last day at St Peter’s for Josh, so we decided to hand over the blog to him. Here is what he wrote…

This week turned out to be a farewell week for me as I will be leaving after half-term. For most of the week we had the pleasure of learning about similarities and differences between the poison dart frog and the UK frog. After we had taken some very useful notes, we had to write a non-chronological report about these amazing amphibians. We were given the choice of either writing it up on publisher or decorating it in our books.  My final week at St.Peter’s culminate with a celebratory football game on Friday. Also this week, the whole school voted for their favourite Year 6 art habitat on Wednesday. Working in groups, we designed rainforest scenes to tie-in with our work on evolution and adaptation in science. We (well I won’t be there!) are looking forward to learning the results after half-term.

We wish Josh well at his new school and thank him for his contributions to St Peter’s, particularly his efforts in cross country which saw him represent Havant at the Hampshire Championships!

Have a lovely bank holiday weekend.

Using your gifts well…

All staff at St Peter’s are extremely proud of the way each and every member of Year 6 conducted themselves for the duration of SATs this week – they really ‘stepped-up to the plate’ and gave the best of themselves. Every child applied themself in a mature and focused manner, an attribute which will serve them well in the future.

Although the week was centred around SATs, the children have also enjoyed some well-deserved ‘release time’ where they have had P.E and read through the script for our forthcoming production – Joseph. Auditions are being carried out next Tuesday; pupils have a page of the script to learn prior to this.

Once again, a big ‘WELL DONE!’ The adults of Year 6 are all very proud of you.

Enjoy a well-earned, restful weekend.

Keep pushing through…

After a motivational speech yesterday from Mr Cunningham, the children are in a primed position for the week ahead. They have really peaked and are mentally ready; we can all be proud of the efforts they have put in.

Just a reminder that your child can be dropped off from 8am Monday to Thursday to enjoy a breakfast of toast and juice with their peers in Year 6.

Many thanks for your continued support. Have a restful weekend.

We Believe In You!

What makes a great speech? As the final part of our expedition draws to a close, the children have been rehearsing and crafting ideas for a motivational speech. They are imagining that they are Ernest Shackleton, having had to rally the crew following the dramatic sinking of their ship – Endurance.

In other areas, pupils have started to hone their racket skills, where they played against each other in a series of tennis matches. We are looking forward to getting our hands on the new rackets that await us in the PE store, and we will use these to develop our ‘Murray’ forehands!

Maths has taken the shape of fine-tuning our arithmetic fluency and seeing and applying these within a range of problem-solving contexts.

Enjoy your long weekend!
