Trip to The Wilberforce Museum

Year 6 visited The Wilberforce Museum to find out about the man who lead the campaign for the abolition of slavery. They were, once again, a credit to the school as they listened to Rebecca guide them through the morning. They were respectful of the artefacts that they were allowed to handle and asked great questions to deepen their understanding. 

Yet again they encountered some painful aspects of history and dealt with this in a superb way.

Homework

In recognition of the class' hard work and excellent response to yesterday's visit (as well as missing our normal homework day) I will not be setting any homework this week. PLease reminder that the children's personal topics are due in by the end of the month.

Beth Shalom

Year 6 visited Beth Shalom, The National Holocaust Centre, as part of their topic, 'Should secrets from the past be shared with the world?' They met and listened to the story of Bob Norton, a refugee of the chaos caused by the Nazis in Europe prior to World War 2. They also followed the journey of Leo, a child in the Kindertransport, on his journey from Germany to England. 

The children were superb throughout the day and were a real credit to St Peter's, I couldn't have been more proud of the way they conducted themselves. Thanks also to Mrs Fisher and Mrs Gagala for supporting us on the visit.

Diversity Week

Year 6 enjoyed a session on Chinese Calligraphy and decided that it was much easier to write numbers in the traditional English way.

World Book Day

Year 6 enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters for the delayed World Book Day event. Even Mr D joined in the fun this year!

Today the children have built and raced F1 cars. The cars, powered by CO2, reached speeds of 50mph over the hall floor in the event which was won by SML.

STEM - Day 1

STEM Ambassador, Stuart Bontoft, lead Year 6 in their first STEM challenge of the year - designing and making an electrically powered car. The children worked in groups of three with Team RIC winning the day's challenge of producing the quickest car. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and look forward to turning their attention to their F1 Challenge tomorrow.

Sleepover

Following on from the school disco Year 6 enjoyed a sleepover in school. They watched a DVD, took part in some drama, had a late night walk around school and listened to some stories. Some of the girls tried to talk their way through the night, and three succeeded! There was early morning  table tennis and hot chocolate and toast for breakfast.

Overall it was an excellent evening and thanks go to Mrs Groarke for ensuring everyone got some breakfast, as Mr Dent forgot last year!

Natural Disasters

We have been looking at natural disasters and these are some of the homework tasks that have been brought in so far.

Holocaust Memorial Service

Year 6 visited Doncaster Museum and took part in the Doncaster Holocaust Memorial Service. They told the gathering of their experience at Beth Shalom where they met Bernard Grumberg, a survivor of The Kindertrasnport.

The children's behaviour was exemplary and many of those that gathered commented positively about them.

 

Year 6 support Children in Need

Along with the rest of the school Year 6 have come to school dressed in spots to support the BBC Children in Need appeal.

Music for Youth Prom

St Peter's joined other schools from across South Yorkshire in making a massed ensemble which performed at The Royal Albert Hall in London. It was a very long day for the children, as well as their families and staff, but all involved had an amazing day.

"Best school trip ever!" - Isobel    "Funfair Feeling!" - Orlaith  

"Too pretty to be true." - Enaya  "Royal as Royal." - Vanessa

"Nerve racking!" - Jack 

 

Remembrance Assembly

Year 6 lead our assembly on Remembrance and the cross is becoming more covered with the names of our families as we say thank you to them for their courage.
