Virtual Achievement Assembly 6th November

Oh wow! We presented this assembly today as a whole school using 'Google meet' and it was amazing! Mrs. White and Mrs. Coghlan Could see and hear the whole school on their big screen! We shared all of these fantastic achievements and it was so good to come together as a whole school again. Thanks to the PTFA for buying us the cameras! We all loved it!

Whole School news

Welcome to the November edition of our Achievement Assembly! This one is a little bit different - we are working hard to make school as 'normal' as it can be for the children in the light of the latest lockdown. We have made the award structure as close to the usual monthly assembly as we can - a big thank you to parents who have contributed to the assembly via email. It's really important that we share these achievements with our St. Peter's family.

Toby also ran primary school cross country on Saturday in horizontal rain! His start was delayed by 50mins, he still gave it his all and managed 59th out of 118.
Jessica received her Blue Peter sports badge! Look at that smile! She deserves to be proud of herself!

Eva represented St Peter's at Primary School cross country on Saturday. She unfortunately had a very disrupted start, but remained calm. She then fell over mid race and had to pick herself up and get to the line. She got 50th out of 76, and she ended saying "well that's racing!" ‚Äč

On Sunday Eva attended her first downhill mountain bike race. Racing girls up to age 16. It was a 6am start and 4pm finish, she did really well improving on every run, gaining a 6 second lead on her first time. This is her getting "air".



Congratulations to Rocky and Jessica on becoming a T6.

Big shout out to the whole of Y6. They have all got above 8/10  on their spelling tests for the past few weeks.


Well done to our Librarians for doing a super job, collecting, isolating and making sure classes receive requested books.


During our Judaism lessons, Class 6 noticed many similarities between Judaism and Christianity. There is especially a strong focus on forgiveness in both religions.  Because of this, we were inspired to create our own door of Mercy. This was based on Pope Francis’ idea from his year of Mercy in 2016. On these images, children wrote what was worrying them and what they wanted to apologise for.

Cup of Kindness

Riley Young gets the cup of kindness this month! He saw that he had an elderly neighbour who lived on her own so he took some stew around for her to eat and so she didn’t feel lonely.
