St Peter’s News- 3rd May 2019

Doing all the good we can through faith, love and excellence

  • It has been a busy week in school, with the launch of our summer term clubs with 16 activities on offer, from French to Science to sports! A huge thanks to all the staff and parents who give up their time to provide such a wonderful range of extra-curricular activities for the children.
  • Mrs Dyer, who will be Headteacher at St Peter’s from September, spent the day with us on Thursday. She enjoyed meeting children, parents and staff, as well as spending some time with the Senior Leadership Team to get to know St Peter’s a little better.
  • The class pages of the school website have been updated for this term and you will find class letters, spelling lists and information about home learning within your child’s class pages.

PTFA

Staff and parents enjoyed meeting to celebrate all the events that have already taken place in school this year, from Easter Bingo to the Quiz Night and the Friday Cake Sales. We appreciate the support that parents and carers give to these events and wanted to tell you about some of the things your giving has enabled the school to do so far this year.

  • Purchase of outdoor overalls to ensure all children are able to access the Forest School sessions, in all weathers! You also help us fund the ingredients for cooking during Forest School sessions.
  • Purchase of signage for our library to make the huge range of books more accessible for the children
  • School trips or special visitors into school for some classes
  • Litter pickers for children who were keen to get involved in keeping our school tidy

We are now busy planning for the Summer Fair. If you would like to get involved, please contact Mrs Duffy or the PTFA directly (ptfa@st-peters-cantebury.kent.sch.uk)

 

Start of the school day

A gentle reminder that the school day begins at 8.45am and the children need to be in school before then. We have had a growing number of children arriving after this time. It is important for the children that they are able to go into school promptly with their class teacher ready for registration and the start of the day’s learning.

Big Battery Hunt Project
Well done to all those children who are busy collecting used batteries in your boxes. We now have our giant battery collection container in school, so you can bring your batteries in, empty your  box and then take it home to carry on collecting!
 
In our collective worship this week we have been thinking about the theme of “The Trinity – Jesus  the Son”. Worship has been led by Mrs Beard and Mrs Pickles in the children’s Key Stages,  Reverend Tim, Mrs Twiddle, Fi Clegg from Kidz Club and Mr Way. 
 
Our celebration assembly on Friday was a wonderful time of saying “Well done” to children for their effort and achievements in class, as well as in other events including a Wake and Shake competition and a Maths Challenge at Junior Kings School.
