Young Enterprise

Year 6 held a Young Enterprise morning outside on the playground in the beautiful sunshine. All the stalls were successful in that their products and games were enjoyed by all and each business made a profit. Well done Year 6 for raising a whopping £200 for charity!

 

Year 6 Leaver’s Production – ‘Panto Pandemonium’

We had an amazing night on Wednesday 12th July – Year 6 performed their leaver’s production ‘Panto Pandemonium’ for their family and friends. It was fantastic – the audience were great fun joining in with the actors and the children sang and acted brilliantly! Well done and thank you to all involved!

Growth Mindset/STEM afternoon

Year 5 and 6 took part in two STEM challenges this week which tested and strengthened their mindset! The first challenge was to use balloons to make the tallest tower, using only sellotape to connect them; the tower has stay standing upright by itself. This challenge was trickier than it looked, the children said they really needed to communicate, work as a team and be resilient as they tried and tested many methods before succeeding.

The second challenge was to build a tower using plastic cups by only using string and a rubber band; no hands allowed! The children had to persevere through the frustration of the cups falling over time and time again. It was a great afternoon spent together strengthening our growth mindset!

Amaze Project 

On Wednesday 12th July, Year 6 had a morning with the Amaze Project which helps the children to remember they are all unique, special and amazing. Therefore they have the opportunities to make the right choices when it comes to friendships, drugs, alcohol, not succumb to peer pressure and respect and look after our bodies by being healthy. The children were praised for their listening skills, well done!

 

Big Bang Science Conference

On Tuesday 20th June, a group of Year 6 children attended the Big Bang Science Conference at Green Park.  They enjoyed the opportunity to participate in a range of interactive exhibits in the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) fair including: building bridges and towers; experimenting with air pressure; testing reaction speeds; observing body organs; making torches and model hearts; using microscopes to examine fingerprints and cells and using tablets to control model cars to name but a few! The children also took part in hands-on workshops where they explored the science of sound through music and built their own elastic band powered cars to race against children from other schools. All the children had a great day and were a credit to St Peter’s with their enthusiastic participation and excellent behaviour. A special mention to Oli who followed instructions to build a computer in super-fast time, and to Chloe and Sophie who designed the K’Nex car that travelled the furthest in our workshop.

A big thank you to the parents who helped transport the children to and from the venue and enabled us to attend this fantastic event.

 

Election Day!

All children were involved in a ‘Taste of Democracy’ election lead by Marlow Town Council. The hall was set up like a real polling station, with children completing ballot forms, posting them into the ballot boxes. Y5 and Y6 children were candidates and had spent days leading up to the election canvassing other pupils to vote for their favourite cake (flapjack, millionaires shortcake, choc chip cookie and blueberry muffin}. The children cast their vote and, after being counted by Y6 pupils, the winning cake was the blueberry muffin. In a few weeks the children will all be receiving a blueberry muffin, therefore experiencing a taste of democracy.

Gardening Day 18th March

An ENORMOUS thankyou to all those who came to help at our gardening day on Saturday. Just over 30 people came to support the day and we were able to achieve much more than we had anticipated!

Keen volunteers were busy from 10-4pm building, repairing, demolishing, planting, transporting, pruning, tiling, decorating, digging, sawing, sorting, sweeping, leaf blowing, tidying and de-cluttering. Most impressively, Mr Edworthy (Aaron and Ciara) worked with Mr Boyle to take down our condemned trim trail. This was a heavy, time-consuming job and we are very grateful for their hard work and determination in getting this job finished.

It was fantastic to see so many willing helpers, I expect we all went home with a huge sense of achievement. We will soon announce a date for the Summer term gardening day, so if you are keen to get involved then don’t be shy!

It is up to us to make the most of our grounds, please support us by encouraging children to use the bins and take care of our grounds.

Thankyou,

Mrs Boyle
