This week some of the year 1 and year 2 children were lucky enough to take part in a local community art project. Audrey Montet, a local artist, invited St Peter's to help paint a mural surrounding the King Offa pub on Wallingsfield walk. The children designed their own stencils and then worked together to create a beautiful bed of flowers and butterflies. We look forward to seeing the final product!

Well done to everyone who took part.
What an amazing week. Thank you to everyone who has supported and helped us to make this week run smoothly. The smell from the food festival was out of this world. Such a variety of flavours!
Here are a variety of photos showing the activities and the food that the children were involved with during International Week:
We all had a marvellous afternoon to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. We enjoyed a whole school picnic on the field followed by a range of activities organised by the staff. A particular highlight was the maypole dancing where children from across the school joined together to participate.
A huge thank you to Mrs Bennett and her team for working so hard to prepare close to 200 packed lunches. It was very much appreciated by everyone.
Each of the children were given a commemorative mug to take home that we hope will provide a long lasting keepsake for years to come.
In our second St Peter’s Poetry Festival, finalists from each class took to the stage to perform their poems to the whole school during the festival this
morning. Each finalist performed clearly and with confidence. We heard a range of poems, the standard was extremely high and judging was a difficult job! Thank you to Mrs Wilson for organising the festival and to everyone at home for supporting their child when learning a poem.
The whole school has enjoyed a fantastic Art Week organised by MissLaffy. The children have participated in a wide range of workshops including scavenger hunts, newspaper sculpture,mosaics and Indian mask making as well as a whole range of activities in class. There have been many highlights but the painting and building of our new ‘St Peter’s Tree’ has been tremendous. The sight of over 100 children painting their piece for the tree on Wednesday will be a lasting memory for us all.
On World Book Day the whole school enjoyed a day of fancy hats, from their favourite books. We had good weather for an outdoor hat parade, a story teller who told amazing stories and bought the story to life with lots of props. We bought in books and left them to be found and read by a new owner. Finally a book quiz to test our knowledge. A great day was shared by everyone and their love of books.
