All the children enjoyed activities in various places around the school. We split the children into 4 groups and worked round a carousel of activities. Our activities were flying a drone, “build a bridge “, making 3D shapes and naming their properties and an “ egg drop “ using recycled rubbish. All the children had a great day. Many couldn’t believe they had done Maths, coding, engineering and designing. They just thought they were having fun 😂.
Class 8 were shocked to discover the classroom in a terrible state on their return to school on Monday morning. Chairs were upturned, books and papers were strewn all over the floor. Worse still, whatever had caused it had also been in Class 6 and Class 7. In fact, there were footprints leading out into the playground. All the classes went out to investigate what looked like giant chicken footprints. We wrote a letter to the police and later that afternoon a police officer came to help us investigate.
What a great introduction to our next English block, which will be focused on the story plot Defeating the monster. Obviously, no giant chickens were harmed in the making of the exciting introduction and we look forward to some exciting writing from the children.🐣
Fantastic first session at the Rebecca Addlington swimming pool today. Well done to every single member of Year 3. You were awesome.
Year 3 will be swimming on Tuesday mornings after half term.
Please make sure all children have swimming kits and towels.
I believe girls need a one piece bathing costume and boys need non baggy swimming trunks ( so no board shorts). No earrings or other jewellery please.
We will be leaving as soon as possible after 9 am.
I’m looking forward to taking all the year 3’s. I’m sure we’ll have a great time.
Don’t forget there are new challenges on Sumdog every week.
Homework bingo is is now available in the classroom, with 9 different activities for the children to engage in with your support. We hope you enjoy finding out about about the Polar Regions. Hopefully there is something of interest for everyone.
Happy New Year and Welcome back .
We hope you all had a great holiday and are refreshed and rejuvenated. This term we will be learning all about the Polar Regions. We are looking forward to our trip, skating with the Nottingham Panthers.
This half term we are learning how to write a portal story. We're looking forward to crafting some great stories with some amazing descriptions. More updates as we go along.
Welcome back after half term.
What at an exciting time this is! Lots of pieces of homework are coming in fast and furiously.

Class 8 Roman Adventure
Looking forward to our Roman day at Mansfield museum on Wednesday. We will be there all day so don’t forget your lunch 😁 . Photos of the day to follow.
Welcome to Class 8.
We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back on Thursday 6th September. Remember that as of Monday, you will be able to have breakfast in your classroom, so make sure you are there in plenty of time!
Our topic this term will be Romans! There will be a topic based homework coming very soon and this will lead to a chance to show off what you have learned at the end of the half term so watch this space.
While we do our very best to keep PE on the same day, there will sometimes have to be changes at last minute so please make sure you bring your PE kit in on a Monday and leave it in school all week.
Lower Key Stage 2 hope to have reading books to send home by the end of the first full week at school and we ask that you read at least four times a week at home and record that you have done so in your reading record.
If there are any parents or carers that would like to come in and hear the children read or help them to learn any other skills then they would be more than welcome. Please see the class teacher if you think you can help out.
Last of all, the Lower Key Stage 2 team are very excited about welcoming you all back to St. Peter's. We will do our very best to make sure the year is the best it can be for everyone. If you have any concerns or questions please come and find us before or after school.
We look forward to an exciting year,
Miss Webb, Mr Blythe and Mrs Eady
