On Monday 29th January, Ellis and Amy from CNG visited Year 5/6 to talk about renewable energy and a water project that they are involved with in Africa. They have been raising money to provide a school in Kenya with much needed separate shower facilities for the girls and boys who board at the school. Ellis has been on a visit to Kenya to see the facilities for himself and so was able to talk to our children about how renewable energy is being used to provide hot water for the showers. Our children were keen to learn about the project as as it links with our previous topic of water and our current science topic of electricity.
At St. Peter’s the Year 5/6 classes are offered the fantastic opportunity of going on a 5 day residential trip every year! We rotate between Bewerley Park and East Barnby so each year group get to go on both. The experience is amazing for the children to develop their independence, build their confidence, work as part of a team and have a brilliant time!
Most children at St Peter’s on their last day in Year 6 are asked to recall their favourite memories from St Peter’s and we can guarantee over 75% of the children choose an experience from their residential trips. The children gain so much from going on these trips and they have an amazing experience! The Year 5/6 residentials have been so successful that we introduced a residential trip for the younger children and they have thoroughly enjoyed it ever since!
