Zero Hunger Run raises over £300!

Date: 16th Oct 2018 @ 5:48pm

Today, we celebrated World Food Day as part of our work on 'courageous advocacy.' This event recalls the commitment of 193 nations to the Sustainable Development Goals and their pledge to end hunger by 2030. We wanted to support this event because it sends a strong message to the public: we can end hunger in our lifetime and become the Zero Hunger Generation, but everyone needs to work together to achieve this goal.

The children learned about World Food Day in class and were informed that they would be helping to raise money for St. Peter’s school in Uganda, which members of the TSP community visited earlier this year, to support them in becoming more self-sufficient. To raise, the whole school took part in a Zero Hunger Run. Each year group gathered outside at various points through the morning to complete a certain number of laps of the field. It was fantastic to see so many parents and other family members turn up to join in the event - some parents with children in different year groups did particularly well!

Well done to everybody who participated and helped raise money this morning. A special thank you to our Kindness Committee who helped set up before the first race and then supported each year group throughout the morning. Thank you as well to Team TSP for serving drinks and snacks to each year group after their race. Altogether we managed to raise an incredible £337.57, which is a great achievement!

 

Our Year 6 mathematicians achieve great success!

Date: 12th Oct 2018 @ 1:46pm

A very exciting week in Year 6!

They have been formidable ‘mathletes’ this week as the children have battled in contests across the country and within Sefton. The National Sumdog Contest began last week and the children were set a target to place in the Top 20. Out of the 1,134 schools that entered across the country (11,238 pupils to be exact!), they managed to finish… 2nd place! This was an incredible achievement, especially for the children’s first Sumdog competition. Although they did manage to hold onto first place for a couple of days, we are still delighted with the final result. They surpassed all expectations and targets – bring on the next contest!

Continuing with their success, the Year 6 children visited Formby High School to participate in their Maths Maze contest. They were put into groups of 6 or 7 and competed valiantly against groups from Freshfield Primary and Redgate Primary through a series of problem solving activities. It was a closely fought battle, but in the end….they won! What a fantastic achievement for the children. They have worked so hard on their developing their Maths skills this half-term and it is amazing to see them achieve so much this week! Second place in a national contest and first place in a local competition - well done, Year 6! Everyone is extremely proud.

The 'Mindful Mile'

Date: 4th Oct 2018 @ 6:24pm

New this week to Trinity St. Peter’s has been the addition of the ‘Mindful Mile’. Each day, weather permitting, the children of Trinity St. Peter’s will be given the chance to walk, jog, or run the ‘Mindful Mile’ of our school field. During this time, the children are given the opportunity to reflect on the day which they have had, as well as reflecting on the days ahead.

The ‘Mindful Mile’ gets children out of the classroom for fifteen minutes every day to move at their own pace, with their classmates, making them fitter, healthier, and more able to concentrate in the classroom.

It is fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, succeeds at the ‘Mindful Mile’.

What a lovely first week it has been back at Trinity St. Peter's. All of the children have come back to school wearing their new, winter uniforms so proudly and have arrived at school each day ready to learn with big smiles upon their faces. We have enjoyed meeting our new pupils and families this week and trust that along with our new staff, they will be very happy here in our school family.

Tennis champions!

Date: 6th Jul 2018 @ 4:29pm

Well done to all the girls in Years 4, 5 and 6 who attended the tennis tournament at Hillside Lawn Tennis Club. The girls competed against several schools in the Formby and Southport area...and emerged victorious!

The girls were placed into 3 teams and battled bravely in the heat. They showed excellent discipline and sportsmanship throughout, as well as impeccable manners! After several matches, two of our teams came out as the group winners. We then competed each other in the final and (unsurprisingly!) one of our teams won!

Congratulations to all the girls - they were excellent ambassadors for the school!

TSP Musical

Date: 20th Jun 2018 @ 9:34am

What a show!  Our amazing children really showed that TSP has got talent in our three performance sell-out of the TSP MUSICAL! What started with an idea from our Think Tank children wanting to raise money for school funds, a truly enjoyable performance from the whole school was created.

 

 

From our Year 6 class opening the show with their performance of the 'The Greatest Show', the Nursery children performing 'Getting to Know You' from the King and I as well as many other musical classics performed by all our children, our audiences enjoyed a real spectacle! Then as Years 2 to 6 came togther to sing 'A MIllion Dreams' in the grand finale, there were very few dry eyes in the house! 

A big thank you to all who supported and attended this event and a special thank you to our Think Tank pupils for making this possible!

GDPR

Date: 2nd May 2018 @ 1:38pm

What is GDPR?

Things are changing!

The GDPR will apply in all EU member states from 25 May 2018. This will affect how schools manage personal data and how this is protected and shared. The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used.

GDPR introduces tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what organisations can do with their data. It also makes data protection rules more or less identical throughout the EU. Trinity St Peter’s is working with NexusProtect (www.nexus-protect.com) who are assisting us on our journey to GDPR compliance and will be acting as our Data Protection Officer post the 25th May 2018.

In the coming weeks school will be updating Privacy Notices, Policies and Consent Forms to make sure we are compliant with the new GDPR.

We ask parent and carers to ensure that their children’s information is up to date and please return updated requests for information as well as consent where applicable. If you have any questions, please let us know: admin@tsp.sefton.school

Sport Relief 2018

Date: 23rd Mar 2018 @ 11:16am

The children have been incredibly excited to celebrate Sport Relief!

 In classes, they have learned about what Sport Relief is and why we donate money. On Friday, the children then came into school in either sportswear or dressed as a sporting hero, ready for a day of activities. There were some excellent costumes - well done! 

The main attraction came in the form of a bouncy castle and inflatable obstacle course! Each class had a fantastic time  going onto the field throughout the day to participate in a range of activities led by our Sports Ambassadors and SMSC Champions. Once the children were familiar with the course, they were timed individually to see who could finish the course in the fastest time, they played 'cat and mouse' with the Sports Ambassadors and SMSC Champions and then they were finally able to race their friends in class and 'buddy' year group. The children loved it!

Thank you to all those who have donated towards Sports Relief. You will still be able to send in donations on the Monday we return after the Easter holidays.

A special thank you to Mr Killa, Mr King, the Sports Ambassadors and the SMSC Champions for organising a great day!

Another wonderful term!

Date: 23rd Mar 2018 @ 9:23am

It has been yet another wonderful term here at Trinity St. Peter's. Our pupils have had, yet again, so many wonderful experiences. Many thanks to all the staff who work incredibly hard in providing our children with such exciting learning opportunities each day.

We say goodbye to Miss McGuire today and wish her every success in her new role as Assistant Headteacher at a Liverpool Primary School. After Easter, we welcome Miss Fitzpatrick to the school family as our Year 2 teacher and SENDCo.

Despite the cold, snowy weather we have had this term, the arrival of the special guests in Foundation Stage - the hatching chicks - made us all feel like Spring really has sprung and we are now all ready to enjoy our Easter celebrations.

We wish you all a happy and holy Easter and look forward to seeing you on Monday 9th April.

Please do follow our whole school Twitter feed @TSP_Primary and your child's class Twitter page (e.g. @Year1TSP) for further additional updates throughout next term. We also have a 'Keeping Children Safe' safeguarding Twitter feed which will update you on the different ways to keep your child safe. This can be found at @TSPKCS.

'Fiestaval'

Niños bien hechos, ¡estamos muy orgullosos de ustedes!

Well done children - we are all very proud of you!

 

'British Science Week 2018'

Date: 19th Mar 2018 @ 3:46pm

We have had the most fantastic week celebrating ‘British Science Week 2018’ here at Trinity St. Peter’s! This year’s theme was ‘Exploration and Discovery’ so from Year 1 to Year 6, classes have been learning about a British scientist who has made a significant discovery. Children then took part in exciting experiments linked to the scientist and their discovery.

Year 1 had fun learning about Charles Darwin and his theory of ‘Natural Selection’. They learnt about different birds and how/why their beaks are different, depending on where they live and what they eat. They conducted their own experiments where the children had to pick up different foods, using different instruments (beaks) to see which were easier to pick up foods and why.

Year 2 learnt all about the wonderful discoveries that the famous scientist Mary Anning made. She was a fossil hunter who is responsible for helping scientists discover more about what the world was like when dinosaurs lived. They then used modelling clay to create their own dinosaur fossils, building up different layers in order to represent the way in which fossils form.

Year 3 learnt about Sir Isaac Newton, famous for discovering the force of gravity. They learnt about how the apple fell from a tree and hit Newton on the head which caused him to believe the Earth must be pulling down the apple. It was from this, Newton discovered gravity. The children then had to reduce the impact of gravity on a falling tomato by creating a protective transportation device. The tomatoes were then dropped from a height to see how well protected their creations were.

Year 4 learnt about the British chemist, Thomas Graham. They learnt about the diffusion of gases and liquids; then carried out an investigation with Skittles in warm water to show the diffusion of liquids.

Year 5 looked at the life and works of the late Professor Stephen Hawking, in particular his discoveries about black holes. They demonstrated how black holes work using a piece of fabric and different objects which were thrown into it and causing them to roll together, just like matter gets sucked into a black hole. Year 5 then investigated a number of materials for their suitability as 'astronappies'! They initially tested for absorbency by carefully dropping water on the materials until they leaked.

Year 6 focused on British scientist, Jane Goodall, who is considered the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees. Using her as their inspiration, they observed some animal behaviour of their own and made notes in their own ethogram of their behavioural observations.

Nursery and Reception also had great fun joining in and listened to the story of ‘Mister Seahorse’ by Eric Carle. They learnt all about the creatures that live in the sea, how oil and water interact and how to make waves. They then made an ‘ocean in a bottle’ to create a sea life habitat.  

As well as all of this, each class took part in some brilliant workshops led by ‘Mad Science’ that focused on a variety of topics from the Science curriculum. All classes then attended a ‘Mad Science’ assembly led by Generator John… and it was fantastic! He taught us all we needed to know about sound. He used lots of equipment such as slinky, to show us how sound waves travel and we learnt that sound travels in longitudinal waves. Generator John also demonstrated how vibrations create a sound using a variety of experiments such as heating the air in a metal tube and using different sized buckets and pieces of string to create animal sounds. We learnt when friction between objects is created, this causes vibrations and therefore a noise is made. It was amazing to see Science before our very eyes and we learnt so much from this exciting experience.

It has been an amazing ‘British Science Week’ at Trinity St. Peter’s and there have been so many wonderful opportunities for thinking scientifically and exciting experiments!
