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

STARTING SCHOOL

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.

Our children learn in a fun, engaging, purposeful environment that is tailored to meet the needs of all pupils.

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. 

St Peter’s Homework Questionnaire

As mentioned in the newsletter last week, we have created a questionnaire to find parents/carers views about homework at our school. We would love to hear how you feel homework has been going this term, both the positives and the negatives. We would be very grateful if you could spare 5 minutes to complete this short online questionnaire. Please click the link below to access, you have until the end of June to share your views. We will look at all of the comments after this time.
