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.


Fundraising Achievements

Well done to one of our pupils Lilli-Mai, who recently raised money for the Sussex Wildlife Trust. She did so well that an article about her success was published in the Spring/Summer 2018 Sussex Wildlife Trust Wildlife magazine!

LILLI-MAI FUNDRAISING We don’t have an award for young fundraiser of the year, but if we did then Wildlife Watch member Lilli-Mai Citrone would certainly be in the running! When her family joined Sussex Wildlife Trust last spring, Lilli-Mai decided to raise funds for the Trust at her school, St Peter’s in Henfield. By selling cupcakes and Wildlife Trust stickers, Lilli-Mai raised an impressive £59.43 for the Trust. Thank you Lilli-Mai!
