We enjoyed our Leavers' Lunch today. We voted for a full English breakfast and enjoyed music and chatter over the dinner table!
We went to Church for our Leavers' Service and received a Bible as a gift from church. An emotional set of last days but we'll let our hair down at the disco.
Year 6 have been thinking about our time at St. Peter's - 7 years in total. Here are some of our reflections.
What has St. Peter’s done for me?
St. Peter’s has been 7 memorable years. It all starts back in Class 2, where my journey began. My teacher was Mrs Taylor. At the start I didn’t really have much confidence but it soon all changed; I’ve made lots of friends on my journey.
In the Infants we used to play in the sand and explore the outside. As I moved up the school, I made more friends but it became challenging in maths and literacy but the teachers always helped me.
I have competed in lots of different things like football, rounders and many more sports. There have been lots of after school clubs, school trips and trips to Robinwood. But as my journey comes to an end – I have to thank all the teachers and friends as I have changed for the best. I have become the best I can be, I have worked hard and helped others. I have done all that St. Peter’s has asked of me.
What has St. Peter’s done for me?
Wow! What an amazing 7 years I’ve had here at St. Peter’s; ups and downs, to and fros.
It all started in Class 1 where the foundations were laid and I started to become me. I started easy; learning to use manners, quite simple you’d say but as some would say ‘It’s all about the base’.
Then in Year 3 I met one of my favourite teachers; she just had that natural ability. I think doing the Egyptians in Year 3 really helped because I realised not everything was going to be done for me, moreover, I started to be more independent and think for myself.
Alternatively, I’ve done a lot for St. Peter’s like competing in competitions (and winning them … of course!) Moreover, I’ve tried to be the best person I can by encouraging and smiling every day. Consequently, I’ve built good relationships with a few of the adults around school.
That’s it; the memory of a goldfish emptied! And now I’d just like to say a few thank yous to all the people who have helped me through my education; and of course all my friends who have stuck with me through the years.
What has St Peter's done for me?
From reception to Year 6, I have felt welcome. When I walked through the school gates on my first day I felt a warm feeling of care and love. My life changed when I came to St Peter's, the world felt open to me. I started off with no friends but that soon changed ...
I became 'bff's' with Lizzie; we loved to play with the cars on the carpet and we absolutely loved painting (we were the messiest!)
I am in Year 6 now and it is so sad to think of leaving this wonderful school. It feels funny to be in year 6; it's not hard in year 6, it's easy. I have a lovely teacher; she has given me so much confidence in every lesson.
I have been in the quiz team and in some after school clubs. I have raised money to help the school and for charity. As an individual I have helped the school by doing 'the bog-eyed jog'; raising money for guide dogs.
Consequently, I feel like I will do well at high school because I have been confident throughout St Peter's and I have helped school and I have helped it to be a lovely place for education.
What has St Peter’s done for me?
St. Peter’s has helped me a lot. At the start I couldn’t read and now I can. I will never forget my one and only primary school, I’m so glad I came here.
I am so proud of this school for everything they have done for me and the other children in the past. There’s lots of memories in my mind that are great. I will never forget this school.
I was shy at the start and the teachers helped me to speak to people. I walk through my classroom door with a big smile on my face. My teachers have supported me every step of the way. If you do something nice for the teachers, the teachers will be nice back. Treat someone as you would like to be treated – that’s our saying in our school. Our moto is ‘Love, Challenge and Inspire’.
In my work, I have worked my absolute hardest and the teachers are proud of me. I try to be a positive person. My progress has become better and better since the Infants. I just want to say a massive thankyou to the staff who have supported me over the past 7 years: Mrs Taylor, Mrs Eastham, Mrs Elliott, Mrs Kirk, Mrs McClellan, Miss Bird and lots more.
I appreciate everything you have done for me.
What has St Peter's done for me?
The first day of primary I was scared, nervous, tense. Stepping through the school doors, I was flustered with rosy cheeks, nothing in my mind but mixed emotions. Emotions that every child in the same class as me would feel.
Here I am, my first day at St Peter's, holding my sister's hand - with her by my side everything seemed that little bit better. Even though I was timid and shy, I slowly began to make friends which was a big thing for me. I remember playing and exploring in the class garden with Kaytlin, Ebony and Keira. We are still best buddies.
Starting my journey, the years went faster, the work got harder. I grew up fast which I couldn't have done without St Peter's; they have done so much for me like making me enjoy the good things in life e.g. clubs - football, cricket, athletics and many more.
Henceforward, I'm in year 6 now and life couldn't be better. Re-writing my memories makes me smile. If I now compare myself to my experiences through primary, I'm mind-blown, starting at school with nothing in my head, to me now - that I'm confident.
Alternatively, I think I have returned the favour, not just for school but for me as well, by taking part in everything offered and trying my best every day.
I'd just like to say a massive thank you! To all the teachers, especially Mrs Kirk, Miss Bird, Mrs Eastham and Mrs McGuinness for helping me to grow in confidence throughout my education. Thank you!
I will always try to love, challenge and inspire!
After my first day, I knew this was the place for me. I've had many adventures at St Peter's; I've had my ups and downs.
I was a bit shy on the first day but Benjamin introduced himself to me and henceforward we were friends.
There have been lots of great experiences to talk about but like Mrs Kirk (my year 3 and 6 teacher) taught me, I have to pick my peaches! St Peter's has helped me carry on making friends, and gave us many trips. My first trip was to a farm; I loved it.
My favourite subject is maths although it wasn't in the early years. I wasn't confident but through the years I got taught more so I know more and my maths was really strong by year 2.
I'm very excited about high school but I will miss St Peter's. They have given me a very educational childhood. I have repaid school by always trying my best. St Peter's has given me the boost and, furthermore, I'm now ready for high school. Thank you St Peter's. I will miss you.
What Has St. Peter’s Done For Me? Adam Morgan
With my 3 years at St. Peter’s, I’ve made lots of friends – would you like to hear about it? Here we go.
My first day was in September 2014. I went into class and sat next to Jahidur. At break time we played football and I was on Daniel’s team. We won 4-2. So you see I started to fit in right away.
With the help of Mrs Eastham and Mrs McGuinness, I joined lots of clubs and loved it.
Now I’m in Year 6. When I started, I felt a bit shy but after 2 days Miss Bird helped me in many ways but she couldn’t do it on her own. She got help from my wonderful teachers. I would like to say a big thankyou to the teachers for being amazing. St. Peter’s has offered me a lot more than my old school.
In return, I have offered St. Peter’s a lot by joining in sport tournaments and I’ve helped by trying my best everyday. And doing jobs around school and in class.
I have made outstanding progress at St. Peter’s. I think St. Peter’s wanted me to reach the best of my ability.
Thankyou for being amazing. I will miss you.
What Has St. Peter’s Done For Me? Lizzie Littler
When I first started St. Peter’s, I was very nervous and I didn’t want to go into school. I started off in one class and my teacher was Mrs Renton. I loved playing outside as well as in the sand. I met my first ever friend there and we are still friends to this day.
As I went up in years, I became less nervous. But I had no confidence in maths and I wanted to give up. But my teacher Mrs Kirk would always say to me that I can do maths and don’t give up. I took that advice even though she had to say it to me loads of times and became more confident in myself. I can now do maths and my confidence is rising.
St. Peter’s has done a lot for me throughout the years and I’ve done a lot for it too. I have made products for the school fair and I have stayed back to help others. I have also tried my best to do year 6 work.
I hope St. Peter’s carries on helping others like me as the time goes by and I thank all the teachers for giving me confidence in all the lessons that this school gives us.
