Year 5 Barratt Homes Site Visit

Year 5 took a trip to see the Barratt Homes site in Henfield this week. We first had the chance to look round a show home – including inside the cupboards. After being issued with hard hats and reflective jackets, we listened carefully to the safety information, then went inside the building site and watched some houses being built. We learnt that it takes about 4 months to build a house. Finally, we all got the chance to help build a wall with bricks and mortar. It was harder than it looked!

St Peter’s Primary School Open Week


If you have a child whose date of birth is between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015, it is now time to be considering where you would like your child to start their primary education. 

St. Peter’s CofE (Aided) Primary School in Henfield is a warm, welcoming, inclusive and caring school, where all our staff are committed to ensuring that every child is given the opportunities to reach their full potential.

Our children learn in a fun, engaging, purposeful environment that is tailored to meet the needs of all pupils. Our broad and balanced curriculum gives pupils the opportunity to meet all National Curriculum requirements but also to learn from first-hand experiences and varied learning opportunities across a range of inspiring topics.

If St. Peter’s is one of your considered schools, then you are warmly invited to come along to one of our open week tours so you can meet the staff and children and hear about our plans for the future.

Time Capsule Burial

Over the past few weeks Y3 have been working on a time capsule project with Barratt homes. This saw the children producing some really interesting work that we could ‘send to the future’. Our children collected a range of current toys, sweets, photos and magazines, all things that the children use today, and buried them with some really superb work that they had produced about our amazing village. The School Council, representing the school,  along with Mrs Jewell and myself, were then fortunate enough to take them down to the new Barratt site and bury them. We even got to meet a superstar, Barry Barratt, who along with representatives from Barratt Homes, helped the children load the time capsule and then bury it. The capsule, which has a lovely plaque to mark its spot, will be  opened in 60 years time, 2078, as Barratt homes are celebrating their 60th year of building houses. Our children had a great time on site and loved discussing how life will be when they are around 70 years old! It is amazing how different they think life will be! A big thank you to all of Year 3 and the parents who sourced sweets, fidget spinners, CD’s and even a board game and hard hat, all of which went into the capsule.


Year 2 trip to Pulborough Brooks

Year 2 had a wonderful time visiting Pulborough Brooks on Tuesday. We went pond dipping and discovered incredible creatures like blood worms and phantom midge larvas.  We also went on a butterfly hunt, where we recorded all of the beautiful butterflies we could see.
