A week spent reflecting…

With our Year 6 Leaver’s Mass now within sight, the children have spent time this week thinking back on their experiences throughout their time at St Peter’s. All have thought deeply and personally about their key moments, take-aways and the advice they would give to their four-year-old self as they near the end of primary school. We are very much looking forward to sharing these and a special song with parents at Sacred Heart on Tuesday afternoon.

Year 6 have been reflecting in other ways too as they have worked their way through a range of Year 7 transition exercises. This has involved thinking about the attitudes we choose and our barriers to becoming the best learners we can be – do we have a fixed or growth mindset? With more work still to be done, we are confident this will set the children up for a great start to secondary school in September.

Have a relaxing, sunny weekend!

Variety is the spice of life…

A great week in Year 6 has come to a close after a great Friday of Art and PE with Mrs Pearson and Mr Crozier. I think we can safely say that if Mr Crozier played another game of dodgeball he would be ready for the Summer Olympics! Luckily – dodgeball is not coming home!

6P had a fantastic time during their water sports trip, benefitting from much kinder weather than 6L had to endure. Great fun was had by all, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing and climbing. Many thanks to Miss Wibberley and Mrs Osmond for braving the water all morning.

With only two weeks left of their primary school experience, the children are preparing for their leavers mass on Tuesday 20th July. More details will follow shortly via parent mail.

In other areas, we are still working towards our DT project and learning the Sacraments in RE.

Enjoy the weekend. Is there something happening this Sunday?

Flying high like Icarus

We have enjoyed another busy week in Year 6 for which the highlight has to be the Icarus recital to the Year Fives on the field. This was a new challenge for the children this year – to learn and perform, off-by-heart, a poem/rap – which they met with great verve and co-operation.

With the Wimbledon Tennis Championships on presently, and having learned tennis for the summer term in PE, the children will be competing in a Wimbledon tournament to see who will reign as greatest in the year group. The children have been ably coached by Mr Henman and Mr Borg, aka… you decide!

6P are looking forward to their Andrew Simpson visit on Monday!

Have a great weekend. We  think there might be some football on!
