Outdoor Learning

Following on from the theme of “what happens after the current Year 6 leave”, we planted a series of plants.  Ones for now – flowering violas, a selection of bulbs to blossom at the end of their time at St. Peters in July which have been specifically selected to attract bees and butterflies to the area to simulate the Year 6’s who have ‘flown’ the school and the importance of focusing on our future; and plants for the future Y6 children– red strawberry plants which will return every year.

The Year 6s also made a start on a hibernaculum (a place for newts to shelter) to encourage more wildlife to the school pond.

A series of labels with encouraging messages for new Year 6’s, accompany each of the pots or beds.

Red Nose Day

Pupils from across the school had an exciting morning dancing with the Year 6 pupils.

The fun continued throughout the day with colouring and even some cupcake decorating.

Thank you to everyone who donated.

Outdoor Learning

With just four more weeks of outdoor learning left for Year 6, we focused on how Year 6 would like to leave St Peters school in terms of how they would like to be remembered or legacies to leave behind.

As we discussed the number of weeks left, we spoke about how long it took for items of litter to ‘disappear’ - We discussed a number of items asking ourselves - “How long,’til its gone?”.  The children realised that if they were to drop a crisp packet whilst still attending St Peters, it would still be there in the grounds for 75 years if not picked up and recycled! 

Year 6 collected between them, three large bags of litter from around the school and also completed a general tidy up of the area, Also a great way to be part of the ‘Big School Clean 2023’.(17 March- 2 April)
