Head Boy and Head Girl Presentations and Results

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!

What a day we have had, we started at Infinite Air on the FreeJump course with over 40 trampolines and box sections, we bounced all over the place. We also did the Bag Jump, standing at nearly 3 metres above the podium floor, we looked down on to the huge airbag, and all eyes were on us. We were at the highest point in Infinite Air, looking out over the whole park, waiting to jump! We nearly all did it!

We also had a fantastic day full of challenge at Beamish Wild. We had the opportunity to learn how to manage risk in a controlled environment and overcome our fears with the support of our friends whilst having FUN.

We all attended a safety briefing and practiced our skills on the ground before heading to the treetops. Beamish Wild’s staff were on hand to supervise us at all times, throughout our high ropes experience which were really, really high and scary.

We hope you enjoy our photos as much as we have enjoyed our day.

Excellent Egyptians

Year 3 visited The Great North Museum to learn about the exciting exploration of life and death in Ancient Egypt, the exhibition combined the Museum’s own Ancient Egyptian collections with a number of spectacular objects on loan from the British Museum.

we were taken on a fascinating journey which explored how the Ancient Egyptians were shaped by the Nile and how they lived their everyday lives as well as their mystical religious beliefs.

Our favourite part of the day was the dramatic journey through the transition from Life to Death by passing though a tunnel which spans a virtual River Nile.
