Fire Safety Workshops (26th April)

A representative from the London Fire Brigade presented Fire Safety Workshops (virtually) to Years 2 and 5, to talk about the dangers of fire, prevention of fire and personal safety in the event of a fire, providing essential and potentially life-saving information to our children.

Road Safety workshops were arranged for Years 4 and 5, covering all aspects of road safety when out and about.

Science Week (week beginning 14th March)

The theme for our Science Week this year was Growth, and was part of British Science Week, which took place nationally to celebrate the impact of science in our world and lives.  Children covered a range of topics including personal growth, financial growth and plant growth, working individually and in small groups.  On the final day children dressed up in science/growth related costumes, eg a doctor, nurse etc... 

Parent Workshop - Phonics (28th February)

We held a parent workshop covering all aspects of KS1 Phonics teaching.  The workshop was very well attended, giving parents an opportunity for discussion and to ask questions.  We look forward to further parent workshops in the future.

Cultural Week (Week beginning 7th and 21st February)

During our two Cultural Weeks, our children studied and discussed different cultures through classroom activities and assemblies.  Our children enjoyed both a Korean themed lunch and a Brazilian themed lunch, as well as participating in a 'dress up' day, where children came to school in their chosen cultural clothes.  There was interactive Chinese and Indian Dance Workshops for all classes, which were both very informative and very enjoyable for all.

Parent Meetings Day (21st February)

Thank you all for attending your child’s Parents’ Meeting.  We had a very high number of parents attending, showing a community focussed on learning.  Should you need to see a member of staff, either contact the member of staff before or after school, or let the office know and arrangements can be made.  As you know we are always willing to see you – the more questions you ask about your child, the more we can help.

Christmas Jumper Day and Christmas Lunch Day (14th December)

Children and staff wore Christmas themed jumpers as part of a fundraising event for ‘Save the Children’, raising valuable funds for this very worthy cause.  It was also our Christmas lunch day, and all the children enjoyed wearing their jumpers and hats whilst having their Christmas lunch.

Junior Christmas Concert (8th December)

Due to Covid restrictions, the Infant and Junior productions were recorded individually.  All productions were outstanding and I am sure all parents enjoyed watching the performances via our website.  We thank all the staff and children for their hard work.

Open Morning for New Reception Class Applicants (4th December) 

We had a very successful Open Morning, welcoming new parents to see our fantastic school.

Year 6 to Bus Safety Workshop (14th October)

Year 6 attended a Safety Bus Workshop, organised by Royal Greenwich Road Safety Team, focussing on all areas of personal safety when travelling.  This was particularly useful as many Year 6 will be travelling to their secondary schools independently in September.

It was wonderful to have parents join us for the Meet the Teacher virtual meetings.  Parents commented on how useful it was to receive information with regards to their child's homework, ways in which parents can help their child with studies, class expectations, the curriculum classes would be following etc....

Bob and Roberta Smith Art Project (September)

As part of the Bob and Roberta Smith art project, that will be transferring to the Tate in London, schools were asked to submit art work reflecting the impact of Covid 19 on our local community, how people supported each other during the pandemic and the positive aspects of Thamesmead.  We are delighted to say a number of our talented children’s artworks are to be included in the project.  As Mr and Mrs Hammond  were initially involved, they were invited to the open evening, and received many good comments about the art work St.Peter’s school had submitted. Well done to all those who took part.

All Junior classes attend Mass at St.Peter's School
