Congratulations to our new Head Boy, Logan and Head Girl, Brooke.
They were elected by the pupils from our school on Friday afternoon.
Well done to all candidates – They will all join Logan and Brooke as lead members of our school council.
On Friday, the children of SS Peter and Paul were able to vote for this year’s head boy and head girl.
The candidates had all worked extremely hard with their campaign teams and put together some fantastic presentations, outlining their plans and ideas for our school and students.
Every presentation was extremely good and the candidates spoke with clarity and passion – they should all be very proud.
After the presentations, the children were then able to cast their votes!
This week, year 6 took part in a fantastic careers event, held at St Joseph’s Comprehensive.
The event brought together representatives from many different industries and careers. The children were able to talk to representatives including: the merchant navy, the police, Sunderland A.F.C, Nurses and the NHS, scientists, vets, bakers, artists and animators, computer game design and many many more.
Our children loved asking questions and exploring the different props and equipment on show.
It was a truly inspiring morning and certainly gave our year 6 children lots to think about for their future careers!
Excitement is building in year 6 as the children prepare for the head boy and girl elections. The campaign teams have been working hard on their policies ahead of Friday’s vote.
Who will get your vote?
Year 6 were set some tricky problems today as part of their maths lesson.
They had to work together to complete several problems – testing their reasoning and calculation skills.
Although some of the problems were solved quickly, the biggest challenge was explaining the solutions to the rest of the class!
Last week , year 6 had a great time – working with Claire from Sustrans.
Claire helped us to service and repair our bikes, ensuring they were safe to ride. She also taught us about cycle safety and identified many cycle routes in the local area.
As part of last weeks work with Sustrans, the children went on several bike rides to St Wilfrid’s. They met with members of the cycle club and even had a tour of the school!
What a day we have had, we started at Infinite Air on the FreeJump course with over 40 trampolines and box sections, we bounced all over the place. We also did the Bag Jump, standing at nearly 3 metres above the podium floor, we looked down on to the huge airbag, and all eyes were on us. We were at the highest point in Infinite Air, looking out over the whole park, waiting to jump! We nearly all did it!
We also had a fantastic day full of challenge at Beamish Wild. We had the opportunity to learn how to manage risk in a controlled environment and overcome our fears with the support of our friends whilst having FUN.
We all attended a safety briefing and practiced our skills on the ground before heading to the treetops. Beamish Wild’s staff were on hand to supervise us at all times, throughout our high ropes experience which were really, really high and scary.
We hope you enjoy our photos as much as we have enjoyed our day.
We are extremely excited to announce the arrival of the ‘SS Peter & Paul Spelling Bee.’
This is a brand new spelling competition.
Congratulations to the winners of the first spelling bee.
