Marvellous Maths

Cheetahs have been learning all about Measurements, such as height and length, weight and capacity. The children have really enjoyed our practical Maths lessons, as well as using the new vocabulary the have learnt. 


National Trust Museum of Childhood

  We visited the Museum of Childhood at Sudbury Hall to explore further all about Toys throughout history. We were very lucky with the weather and had a fantastic, sunny day. 

We learnt about how children in Victorian times would have been made to clean chimneys. We went in a chimney and found out how dark and small they really are. Some of us even got sooty faces from going in the chimney. 


Let the potato challenge begin!

The time for the potato challenge has arrived again. Lets hope our potatoes grow!! 

The sun has finally arrived at St Peter's! 

Multi Faith Roadshow. 

We had lots of visitors to school, as part of the Multi Faith Roadshow. We had visitors from lots of different religions. We learnt all about Hinduism, Judaism, Sikhism, Bahá'í and Buddhism just to name a few.

We tried on clothes from different faiths and also tried different foods.

Castles and Knights Day

Year 1 enjoyed their Knights and Castles Day. We read a story all about Knights, Dragons and Castles and then made our very own knights.  During playtime, a dragon went into our classroom and made lots of mess. It also left us some clues and we went on a Dragon Hunt. The clues led us to a real dragon egg which was hiding in Mrs Bank’s office. We are all waiting to see what is inside the scaly, gold egg! We will keep you updated!

Happy New Year from all the Cheetahs Class & Staff

Christmas Party

Our KS1 Christmas party was fabulous. We all got changed into our party clothes and had a disco & party game in the school hall. We were all surprised when a very special guest appeared. He told us all about his job, house and reindeer. He even brought us an early Christmas present. 

Church Service

We were invited to go to the United Reform Church in Whetstone for a Christmas service. It was very exciting. We sang lots of songs and even played pass the parcel. The presents made up the Nativity story.


We had an assembly and learnt all about christingles and why we make them. We paired up with our Year 6 buddies and made our own christingles. We all had lots of fun decorating them.


Igloo Homework

We have been learning about the Arctic and people who live there. For our homework we made our own igloos. They all looked amazing and were all very different. We had a real ice igloo, marshmallow igloos and even Lego igloos.
