Comic Relief 2019

Date: 20th Mar 2019 @ 9:24am

Comic Relief was a great success again this year!

Over the past few months, our Kindness Committee and Sports Ambassadors have met to discuss how we can celebrate Red Nose Day, combining humour with the work we have been doing around courageous advocacy.

Following on from the success of our Sport Relief events last year, our Kindness Committee and Sports Ambassadors requested that inflatables be hired again for the classes to provide the comedy element and that this then leads into some work on different courageous advocates. As a result, we provided the children with an inflatable obstacle course and an inflatable dartboard. Every child was given the opportunity to kick, throw or hit a ball at the inflatable dart board after completing the obstacle course; depending on the number the child hit, they were given a sticker with the name of a courageous advocate who has created their own fundraising event or charity. Such names included Lenny Henry, Bob Geldof, Prince Harry and Esther Rantzen. In the afternoon, the children were divided into their Houses and given time to research the work of the courageous advocate they had selected. At the end of the day, the children were then able to share their findings with the rest of their House, inspiring others to think about other ways they can support these advocates.

In addition to the whole school events, classes carried out their own Red Nose Day activities, taking part in quizzes, word searches and ‘red nose’ design work. The children were also given the opportunity to learn more about Comic Relief and the different charities it raises money for.

Thank you to all the parents who sent in donations for Comic Relief!

National Careers Week

Date: 8th Mar 2019 @ 9:33am

This week, the whole school has been celebrating National Careers Week. The children have discussed different careers and jobs they would like to have in the future, and been treated to visits from several parents and friends of the school. The children have thoroughly enjoyed hearing each visitor's story about how they ended up in their current career, what their job entails and the qualities and skills needed for their role. It has been fantastic for the children to hear about a variety of professions, including accountancy, law, emergency services, architecture, design and pscyhology. We are sure that many young minds have been expanded this week and the children have left school this week feeling very inspired with some more ideas about what they might like to do for a career in the future!

Thank you to all our guest speakers for coming in and inspiring our pupils this week!

Athletics Team Experience Great Success!

Date: 8th Mar 2019 @ 9:25am

Congratulations to our Year 5 and 6 Sportshall Athletics Team, who became Sefton finalists this week!

Last Friday, the children travelled to Greenbank High School to compete against four other Formby school in the Indoor Athletics Tournament. They competed in various track and field events, inlcuding sprints, relays, javelin and triple jump, showing plenty of grit and determination throughout. After a closely fought battle, the children managed to finish in first position! They received gold medals and qualified to the Sefton finals.

On Wednesday, the final competition took place and the children competed again, this time against the larger schools in Sefton. The children were absolutely fantastic, cheering each other on through every race and achieving some great victories in their heats. While they may not have been able to win the contest overall, the children left the event knowing they had given their best and represented the school incredibly well. We are all so proud of the effort and resilience the children showed!

World Book Day 2019

Date: 7th Mar 2019 @ 10:44pm

What an incredible celebration of books and reading it was on World Book Day this week here at Trinity St. Peter's!

Both staff and children enjoyed dressing up as different book characters from books both old and new and a wide array of fun activities took place across the school. From Reception and Year 6 buddies being entertained with a live retelling of 'Toy Story', from Mr King, Mr Killa and Miss Byrne; Year 1 enjoying the official opening of their new 'Reading Den' to Year 4 receiving tweet replies from their current studied author, Onjali Rauf!

As Friday 8th March is International Women’s Day, each class studied different inspirational women from the past and present; women of all races and religions with differing skill sets. Physicists, actors, chemists, activists, artists – all having inspired and shaped the world in some way and featured within the beautifully illustrated 'Little Leader' books by Vashti Harrison.

The children had a magnificent day – thank you so much for the many fabulous costumes too. A great day was enjoyed by all!

School Money / Eduspot - Notification

Date: 17th Jan 2019 @ 10:22am

 

Dear Parents,

With online payments on the rise, Eduspot (as providers of SchoolMoney) would like to remind you to be extra vigilant when making payments.

Recently, there have been a small number of reports of attempts to defraud parents whilst using SchoolMoney. We thoroughly investigate all reports of attempts to defraud parents using our system (including separate, independent checks) and can confirm that we found that no fraud, data breach or malicious attack has occurred.

We believe however, that it important to remind parents to be extra vigilant when making payments online. NEVER give out your ATM pin to anyone – no system or person should ever require this to complete an online transaction. If something looks suspicious, do not complete the payment, close down your browser and start again making sure you are using a genuine website.

You should also ensure all system and app updates are applied to your PC or mobile devices and that they have reliable, up-to-date anti-virus software installed. Increasingly, mobile devices are the targets of malicious software so it’s important that these also have adequate protection.

Eduspot remains committed to protecting your online security and providing you with an easy to use solution to securely make payments to your schools. If you spot something that doesn’t look right relating to SchoolMoney, please contact us at support@schoolmoney.co.uk.

Thank you

Our Brilliant Brains!

Date: 11th Jan 2019 @ 9:50am

 

                                        

Happy New Year to you all!

What a fun start we have had to 2019 at Trinity St. Peter’s!

Our whole school theme this week has been learning all about our brilliant brains and how incredible they are.

The children have learned just how much our brains are responsible for and how important it is therefore to make sure we look after our brains too.

Through making human neuron chains, the children saw how messages are passed through the body to the brain. They studied the two hemispheres of their brain and were fascinated to learn that the right side of their brain is responsible for what the left side of their body does and vice versa! By doing brain gym exercises the children further developed their coordination and concentration skills through crossing their mid-lines. 

Little sponges on desks appeared around the school this week too – and the job was to keep these little sponges hydrated! Like the sponge proved, their brains need watering regularly too. So when the sponge was dry… they knew it was time to have a sip themselves too - drinking water is so important. They also discovered other key things that keep their brains healthy and active: reading, exercise, eating apples, a balanced diet, reduced sugar intake, wearing a cycle helmet, sleep and mindfulness. 

 The children have particularly enjoyed reaction timed activities on the iPads as well as optical illusions and brain teasers such as the infamous stroop test! Using play-doh, some classes created their own little mini models of the brain – but not even that was easy! The children were challenged to use their brain even further so had to create their mini play-doh brains with either blindfolds on, using their partners hands instead of their own or by making it behind their own back! The children have really pushed their brains into working differently this week. 

Further embedding the growth mindset approach to our learning, the children learned how practice makes permanent. The children learned how their brains want to be challenged and through our school value of hope; having self-belief, optimism and resilience whilst striving for accuracy, that anything actually is possible. The synapse in our brains continue to develop all the time and our children can actually do anything they set their mind on.

All classes have really enjoyed learning about the brain this week.

Christmas 2018

Date: 19th Dec 2018 @ 1:42pm

                                                                           

Where did that year go? As 2018 comes to an end, we have so much to reflect upon and be grateful for. Another wonderful term has been enjoyed by the children here at Trinity St. Peter's; one filled with so many wonderful, different learning experiences and opportunities, and love and laughter.

Thank you to those of you who were able to come along to church this morning and join us for our Christmas Service which the children in Year 4 led so beautifully. 

On behalf of all the staff we would like to thank you for your kind gifts which are not expected but greatly appreciated. We wish you all a happy and holy Christmas.

Sefton Sumdog Champions!

Date: 7th Dec 2018 @ 1:39pm

A huge congratulations to our Key Stage 2 children, who competed in the Sefton Sumdog Contest this week. The competition included 21 classes from the local area - equating to 510 pupils - and involved each child answering 1000 questions over the course of the week. Their scores were ranked individually, as well as collectively for an overall class score, creating a very competitive 'buzz' around the corridors. It was a closely fought battle and in the end...all four of our classes made the Top 4! What a fantastic achievement! Not only that, but nine of our pupils also made the Top 10 individual leaderboard...incredible!

As a result of all their hard work, Year 6 earned themselves a six-month subscription to Sumdog, allowing them to access all the Maths games for free. Years 3, 4 and 5 have all earned free three-month subscriptions as well! Well done to all our Key Stage 2 pupils. To put in that amount of effort all week, both at home and in school, is a fantastic achievement. You have all thoroughly deserved these high achievements!

Switch Off Fortnight 2018

Date: 5th Dec 2018 @ 4:31pm

From Monday 19th November to Monday 3rd December 2018, as a school, we took part in ‘Switch Off Fortnight 2018’ which is a campaign aiming to reduce the energy that we use by encouraging everyone to switch off appliances.

At the beginning of the two weeks, our SEA Committee visited classes to deliver a short talk about the project. They then ran an energy audit which was recorded online. Throughout the two weeks, classes made a special effort to turn things off and this included reminding teachers to turn off their electricals too! At the end of the two weeks, SEA completed another energy audit. Our final energy audit for 03/12/2018 showed a difference of -6.85kWh over a 24 hour period. If we keep this up over the year, it could be a difference of -1336kWh.

To celebrate, classes will be awarded with certificates and stickers to say well done and to remind them of the importance of saving energy and the difference it can make!

Well done to everyone who took part and a big thank you to the SEA Committee for leading their first official and very successful project!

Christmas Fayre and Santa Dash

Date: 1st Dec 2018 @ 6:02pm

Thank you to Team TSP and all parents, staff and governors, for making sure the Christmas Fayre & Santa Dash were full of festive cheer on Friday evening. 

Thank you to the families who purchased their child’s Christmas cards this year too. The sale of the Christmas cards raised £248.50 for Christian Aid. Well done to our Think Tank Committee for this great way to provide much needed funds to families affected by the tsunami in Indonesia. 

We are now in Advent - a time to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas and the children will be exploring this in class and as part of our Collective Worship.

The next few weeks bring us the Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1 Nativity Performances & the Carol Service at St Peter’s Church which will be led by our Year 4 class this year. Staff and children have been working hard to make these performances extra special. We can’t wait to enjoy them.

Road Safety Week 2018!

Date: 22nd Nov 2018 @ 5:13pm

 

This week we have celebrated Road Safety Week and wore stripes on Wednesday 21st November 2018 to raise awareness for the charity Brake. Brake is a road safety charity that works to prevent road death and injury, make streets and communities safer, and supports the victims of road crashes.

The STAR committee worked hard to plan exciting activities. Some members of the STAR committee visited Foundation Stage to help the children understand the importance of road safety. Key Stage 1 took part in the ‘Green Cross Code’ quiz to test their knowledge and drew different crossings on the playground. They also enjoyed pushing toy cars at different speeds to remind them how fast cars can go and the importance of being careful when crossing roads. In Key Stage 2, the STAR committee members delivered presentations and led discussions to their class to raise awareness of Road Safety and mixed and produced Road Safety Raps.

Well done to everyone involved and remember to stay safe when crossing the road!

Celebration of Kindness Week 2018!

Date: 16th Nov 2018 @ 4:21pm

Our Celebration of Kindness Week has concluded this afternoon! We can finally reveal that after all the activities that have taken place over the last week, we have managed to raise an incredible…£936.05! What a fantastic achievement!

The week of celebrations kickstarted last Friday with the debut of our new school music video, reminding us to LAUGH MORE, WORRY LESS. The children certainly took this advice on board as they laughed through the entire video; watching themselves, their friends, their teachers and even some parents taking part!

This week, classes have been taking part in a range of activities to celebrate kindness. Nursery and Year 1 were asked to bring in one of their teddy bears on Monday. They were encouraged to NURTURE their bear throughout the school day and participate in a variety of lessons during the day involving their bear. Years 2 and 3 also took part in their very own TSP ‘Bake Off!’; the children had clearly worked incredibly hard at home as they arrived at school with some amazing creations. They sold their cakes throughout the day and raised a staggering amount of money!

On Tuesday, the whole school came together to participate in TSP’s Got Voice, a musical event led by our Year 6 Think Tank committee. All the children were divided into their four Houses (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) and given a song to perform that day. In the afternoon, the whole school came together and performed for each other, with Mrs Pringle and Mrs Meredith acting as our judges! The children thoroughly enjoyed the day, spending time with their siblings and other friends from different year groups. Thank you to Think Tank for organising such a great day!

On Wednesday, Years 4 and 5 took part in the TSP Triathlon. Year 5 went swimming and Year 4 completed a ‘relay style’ bicycle challenge throughout their lessons. As a phase group, the children also completed a mile run on the school field. After setting a challenging target of 180 miles the children managed...192 miles! Well done!

Throughout the week, Reception and Year 6 buddies worked on a ‘pop art’ style project together. The children always love spending time with each other, but they particularly enjoyed this week where they were able to create something special together. The children then held an art exhibition on Thursday for all their parents to come in and see their finished pieces.

As part of our fundraising for Children In Need, the Year 6 class were invited to be part of a ‘super choir’, singing an original song ‘We Are All Stars’, co-written by Mr Cook from Formby High School. This song is available for download and money raised will go towards Children In Need. This is yet another fantastic achievement for our children. A snippet of the children singing this can also be found on the Year 6 Twitter page.

Our week concluded with the children being presented with their ‘Choose Kind’ t-shirts on Friday afternoon while participating in a range of activities for Children In Need. Years 1 to 6 then came together to perform ‘Wonder’ by Emeli Sande. It was such a powerful song and a beautiful moment to share together as a whole school. It was the perfect conclusion to what has been a fantastic week – well done!

Again, thank you to all those involved and for all those who gave in donations or sponsored children in their activities. We have been very kind and raised an incredibly impressive amount of money!
