Easter Egg Decorating Competition|
Here are our amazing competition winners and their eggciting competition enteries. Well done to everyone who participated! It was a very difficult judging decision. We had lots of beautiful designs of birds and animals, some very inventive designs like'eggspeciable me', 'eggvengers', 'eggmojis' and an amazing model of our school, including egg shaped children, an egg shaped head and deputy and even an egg shaped Pat!
Burnley Football Club Manager & Player Visit|
Last Half term St Peters welcomed two very special visitors to our school. Burnley FC's Manager Sean Dyche and club Captain Jack Cork. The children participated in a PE lesson alongside both Jack Cork and Sean Dyche who joined them in the activities and offered the children expert advice. At the end of the session Laiqa (Year 6) was given a prize for demonstrating the value of Fairness. She will be attending the last Burnely FC home game as the referees mascot!
It was a fantastic afternoon and one the children will never forget!
The Railway Project|
Year 6 participated in an Art Project in which they collaborated with the Community Railway to improve Burnley Central Station. The project aimed to make the station more colourful and bright and bring to life the dull station. Year 6 were project managed by Daisy , from the Community Railway and worked with artist Alistair. We visited Burnley Central Station and caught the train to Preston Station, learnt about languages and trains before putting all this together in some art work. Staff from Manchester University helped us with the project. The work was all put together in a digital art project which is displayed in Burnley Central Station.

Year 5 and 6 London trip|
On Thursday 22nd of September, a group of excited year 5 and 6 pupils and four members of staff travelled to London as we had been invited to sing in St. Paul’s Cathedral.
After a long 7-hour coach trip we all finally arrived at the hostel where we were staying. We unpacked our bags and sat down to a tasty meal. Following on from this we were then treated to an exclusive open top bus tour of London. On our trip we saw various famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and The London Eye. Then after a very long day it was time for bed!
The next day, we had our breakfast and were then treated to a tour around St Paul's Cathedral. This was then followed by a quick rehearsal with our group leader Tom, who works at St Paul's Cathedral. He showed the children how to clear their throats and get their voices ready to sing.
Finally, after a few practices it was time for the children to perform. Over 100 visitors attended the performance and the children were amazing. Mrs Craggs, Mrs Coyne, Mr Vanboyd and myself were so proud of them all and even became a little emotional ourselves.
Unfortunately, it was then time to go home and we were then faced with another 7-hour coach journey back to school but it was completely worth it. We'd had a fabulous time!
