Well done to our Stars of of the Week 2-11-17, you make all your teachers so proud.
Year 6 had a great afternoon investigating reflective materials. They even adapted their own clothes so that they could be seen on these dark nights. Remember be bright, be seen.
Year 6 Sports Hall Athletics. Well done to all.
We have been making Autumn Crowns this week. We used lots of maths to help us make them. Please ask your child to find out how we made them.
Well done to all our stars this week. We are so proud of all your achievements. 9-11-17
Congratulations to our new school buddies 2017-2018
This year our buddies will be very busy organising playground games and termly inter house playground competitions. They will also be there as pupil support at play and lunch times ensuring that friendship is at the centre of our play. Well done buddies I’m looking forward to working with you this year.

In the last week before half term, Year 6 headed to Beamish Open Air Museum as part of their topic work, studying the Victorian Era.
The children were able to explore the museum, visiting the 1913 town (including the sweet shop!), using the period transport such as trams and open top buses. They then headed to the pit village where they had to investigate the death of a young boy who had died at the local colliery.
This really helped us to understand the impact of the child workforce on the families at that time. We were also shocked at the dangerous conditions children were working under.
On Friday, the children of SS Peter and Paul were able to vote for this year’s head boy and head girl.
The candidates had all worked extremely hard with their campaign teams and put together some fantastic presentations, outlining their plans and ideas for our school and students.
Every presentation was extremely good and the candidates spoke with clarity and passion – they should all be very proud.
After the presentations, the children were then able to cast their votes!
