We are so excited to be taking part in Outdoor Classroom Day this year! We hope that there will be lots of fun and interactive sessions in our school grounds, and maybe even a little further afield! If you have any ideas for lessons you' do like to do outside, let your class teacher know!

How do we keep our children healthy?
Spring Term Update
The vegetables in the junior garden have now been harvested and all the produce has been passed on to Sue, our school cook, to use in delicious and healthy school lunches.
Next, we will cover the garden to prevent weeds growing during the winter months.
The second half of our funding will soon be on its way and we will begin to decide how best to utilise every penny in both the infant and junior departments.
You can also see photos of our progress on our Twitter profile @STPCEPrimary.
Junior Tasty Tuck Shop
Last year, The Junior School Council launched a healthy tuck shop. It proved to be hugely successful at making St Peter's an even healthier school.
This year, we have a new and dedicated Tasty Tuck team. They will continue this fantastic initiative with support from Miss Falcon. Thank you to all pupils who wanted to be involved. There will be another opportunity to help out after Christmas.
Ask the Tasty Tuck team all about the brand new products available!

This initiative is not-for-profit but instead the money raised will go straight back into ordering more Tasty Tuck items.
The Tasty Tuck shop runs alongside our popular Break-time Toast and Fruity Tuesdays.
What is Health for Life?
Health for Life supports primary schools in engaging their community in healthy active lifestyles and embeds the work into the school culture in a way that is sustainable. It is intended to increase the knowledge and skills of pupils and promote changes in healthy lifestyles, attitudes and behaviour; with focus of the project being on healthy eating and cooking skills, growing food, physical activity and family involvement.
Here at St. Peter's, we have embedded the initiative over the past two years and we are now completing our final year in order to obtain Healthy School status.
The pupils and Staff would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to the Friends of St. Peter's who recently donated money for a new greenhouse. We hope to purchase it very soon.
