All our children looked fantastic today. We celebrated World Book Day by dressing wooden spoons as our favourite book characters and sharing stories with each other.
Today we were visited by the Life Education Bus, a charity that provides Health and Relationship Education within a stimulating environment. We all enjoyed meeting Harold the giraffe who spoke to the Infants about how to look after themselves by making healthy food choices, getting plenty of exercise and sleep and looking after their bodies by regularly cleaning their teeth and washing properly. Our Juniors learned about how to keep their brains healthy and avoiding substance abuse, alcohol and nicotine. Class 3 role-played how to be an assertive rather than aggressive friend and where to seek help if needed. Many thanks to Megan who has supported our learning through the day.
The children enjoyed their last session in Forest School on Wednesday, despite the weather! Class 1 went on a Treasure Hunt and recapped their learning about birds. Class 3 found out about Antarctic animals and Class 2 were classifying animals into their main groups of vertebrates (mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles) and invertebrates.
Proud parents were entertained yesterday by our superb team of Cheerleaders. They have been working hard on their routine, after school, over the last 4 weeks with coaches from The South Ribble Ribble Sports Partnership. Well done to everyone the performance was amazing.
Today the children enjoyed learning about fire safety and the three things that are needed to make fire: • Heat • Oxygen • Fuel They each roasted a marshmallow and made a ‘schmore’. As an extra treat the children went hunting for ‘creepy crawlies’ or invertebrates as they should be known. The final forest school session will be next Wednesday, 12th February and it will resume in the Summer Term. Due to the amount of footfall it has had we need to let the plants grow and the animals enjoy their habitat again!
Congratulations to our Sportshall Athletics Team who came 3rd in the South Ribble Small School Athletics final. We are very proud of you all!
The children enjoyed their learning on Wednesday 15th January! Class 1 learned about plant habitats, Class 3 used materials to make shelters and Class 2 looked at things that are living, dead or have never been alive. There are 4 more sessions before half term.
A treat out to the Panto today!
Well done to Class 1 on their production of ‘A Really Noisy Nativity’. They were fantastic!
Well done to Classes 2 & 3 on their fantastic performances of Aladdin this week.
On Wednesday all the school visited the U3A at the Village Hall. We entertained them with a variety of Christmas songs and Carols and it was lovely to hear them join in with us.
Now time to hang our decorations ready to welcome visitors to our lovely school.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Absolutely thrilled to come 3rd in our village Scarecrow Competition 2019. Well done children. Thank you to everyone who voted for us.
Sadly, it is time to say goodbye to goodbye to our Four Fantastic Y6 boys. They have been a real credit to our school. To celebrate their time with us we ended the term with a fun and emotional Leavers Assembly and Crafty Potter treat. To say thank you, the boys treated their friends to a visit from the ice-cream van. We wish them many magical moments as they journey on to their Secondary Schools.
To celebrate 50 years since man walked on the moon, the children and staff of SS Peter & Paul's made 'Lunar Landing', our entry for the Mawdesley Scarecrow Festival.
Congratulations to these pupils who achieved full attendance for this academic year.
Class 1 enjoying Forest School in our beautiful grounds.
Another fun filled day at SS Peter & Paul’s with Vicky from The Clay House at Cedar Farm Mawdesley. She came into school to work with the children on a piece of art to be displayed there later in the month. Every child in the school had the opportunity to contribute a picture or imprint, based on nature, which will form one collective piece of artwork. We are really looking forward to seeing the finished product.
Another fantastic day with our PTFA organising the School Bake Off. We had lots of cakes entered into the competition and Susie, from the Cake Pavilion, was our guest judge. She was spoilt for choice with a vast array of very talented entries based on a summer theme. Rose won first prize of some baking goodies and Chloe came second. ALL of the cakes were works of art and the adults and children thoroughly enjoyed tucking in! Thank you to everyone who supported this event.
🎉WE DID IT .... 🎉 Winners of the Bishop Rawstorne Maths Challenge 2019. Congratulations to our brilliant team of Mathematicians, we are very proud of you.
Last week we welcomed Carla and Tom from Lancashire Fire Service in to school. Years 2, 3, and 4 learnt about the best way of getting themselves out of a burning building, why it is important to close all the doors at night time and how to check if there is a fire behind a closed door. The children demonstrated their understanding through role-play and practising the ‘Stop, Drop and Roll’ rule, which needs to be used if their clothing is set on fire. In Class 3 they spoke to us on the importance of safe travel. When travelling it is important to remember: 1. Always wear a cycle helmet. 2. A booster seat helps a seat belt fit correctly. 3. Always wear a seat belt. 4. You are more at risk being a cyclist or pedestrian at Secondary School.
Early celebrations to mark the feast day of SS Peter & Paul.
