In R.E. we follow the 'Come & See' program which is also followed by other Catholic schools in our diocese.

The 'Come & See' program allows the children to explore the life and teachings of Jesus through Bible stories, discussion, prayer and personal reflection and meditation. As with the rest of our curriculum, we ensure that the delivery of R.E. is through hands-on, play based learning and is presented in a style and manner that is meaningful to the children.




We follow the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc. phonics scheme at St. Peter's. Every day your child will learn a new sound based around a fun picture. They will also get the chance to use these sounds when reading with Fred the Frog, and also when writing some simple words. To help your child practice these sounds at home please keep completing the sound sheets that they are getting, but you can also visit the Ruth Miskin website where you will find lots of useful parent resources that you could use at home. Please click on the link below to access the website.


  • We use Rising Stars Mathematics in order to encourage mathematical awareness and understanding through enjoyable, game based learning. 
  • We aim to give children a secure foundation in mathematics and ensure they're prepared for Year 1 with a selection of creative, free-flow, and adult-led activities and games.
