Odd Socks for Anti-Bullying Week

On Monday 12th November, pupils and staff wore odd socks to launch our ‘Anti-Bullying Week’, supporting this year’s National theme of ‘Respect.’

During our PSHE lessons this week, we have been thinking about respect and what it means to show respect. The children have come up with some great ideas, including making sure we are always polite, using our manners and listening carefully to other’s while they are speaking.

In classes, everyone’s name was put into a hat and each child pulled out a name, without telling anyone who it was.  Throughout this week, the children have been trying to be especially kind and caring to the person whose name they pulled out.  All staff did the very same activity too!

Pudsey comes to St Peter’s

Yesterday we had another two special visitors as we welcomed Gavin from BBC Hereford and Worcester and PUDSEY. The children (and staff) were very excited and looked wonderful in their spotty clothes with Children In Need or spotty accessories. Thank you to everyone who helped us to collect our pennies and pounds in our spotty buckets.  With your help and support, Pudsey revealed live on the radio that we have been able to raise £453.21, which is amazing!

 

Harvest Festival

On Friday morning the children, staff and parents at St. Peter’s Catholic First School (Academy) celebrated their Harvest Mass in St. Peter’s Church. The children were invited to bring gifts of food into school throughout the week. Dried goods, tins, jars and fresh produce were sent in abundance.

 A Harvest Loaf and food hampers were then raffled during the Celebration assembly with the proceeds going towards CAFOD to provide food and resources for third world countries.

 Mrs. Clubley, Head teacher said: “Through the generosity of our families the school has been able to donate many food parcels to both The Basement Project and New Start in Bromsgrove so that with our help, local people in need may benefit.  Both charities are always very grateful for our support as it enables them to help many people who otherwise would go without. Thank you to everyone for your generous contributions.

Remembrance Day

In Year Four, the children have been learning about World War Two and Remembrance Day. The children took on the responsibility of selling the poppies to parents, staff and children throughout the week and wore their poppies with pride. A special Remembrance Day Assembly was delivered by the children in honour of those who have fought for our country and the children educated the whole school about the symbol of poppies and why we wear them. As well as this, the children have produced excellent water colour paintings of poppies, which they proudly showed the rest of the school. A special Remembrance Day workshop was put on where the children enjoyed a visit from some students and teachers from St John’s Middle school, Bromsgrove.
