This week Year 5 continued their exploration of the Stockport viaduct in their artwork. This week's lesson centred around creating abstract pieces of art using the viaduct and its shapes as inspiration. The class worked hard on this challenging objective and produced work that they can be proud of, yet again. I have included images from across the unit of work below.

This week the highlight has undoubtedly been Mrs Hopton's science lesson. The children tested various materials in an attempt to create the most wind resistant parachute. The team work exemplified was fantastic and the focus of the children on the task at hand was very impressive! Well done Year 5.

One of this week's highlights was the beautiful Collective Worship planned by the children for Tuesday morning. We celebrated new beginnings and gave thanks for Christmas. The children thought about the readings they would share, the focal point for our prayers as well as music and seating layout. Photos below.

This week we have been using a story map to help us learn the Kipling story 'How the Rhino Got His Skin'. The children read the story several times and heard it read to them from several sources. They then created their story map of key words and icons that helped them remember the story's key phrases and moments. Finally, they rewrote the story from memory (with the odd sneaky look at their story map). Mrs Finan joined the class to celebrate their wonderful week's work on Friday.


Have a look at the pictures below. Well done Year 5.

One of the highlights this week was the models produced in Year 5 based on the Exodus. The children followed instructions very carefully to produce excellent finished products. All this within an hour long lesson - very impressive! 

Friday 8th November


As part of our School Linking Project, Year 5 travelled to Z Arts Centre on Thursday to meet their new friends from Gorse Hill Primary School in Stretford. It was a fantastic day! The schools merged into two groups - half St Peter's and half Gorse Hill. Thy took part in a street dance session and a screen printing activity - all the while getting to know their new friends. We cannot wait for the next step on the journey! As always, the children were a credit to you and the school.

This week the children decided on creating a cross on our Prayer Garden using plastic bags. This linked to our mission of being stewards of the earth - looking after God's amazing world. The lucky children who constructed the cross we our Faith Council members Ella and Sam G.

In our RE topic we are called to be stewards of the Earth. We decided that we could look after our local area by providing a place for the birds to feed, especially when the weather turns cold and frosty. we made bird feeders!
