Welcome to St. Philip’s Primary

The Mysterious Case of the Nest! 

Well, when we returned to school after Summer we were greeted with a huge nest and two eggs that were left by a mysterious creature! We were all so confused and shocked and so we thought it would be best to call on the knowledge of Professor Willoughby- Meadow to help answer our questions on what it could be!!  This started our whole school writing week and we created some fantastic pieces including setting descriptions, warning posters, character descriptions and stories all relating to our mysterious findings. WOW!! 

School Council Elections

We have now elected our school council for 2017-2018. After a democratic election in which children had to register to vote our School Council is now Complete. Check out the School Council Page for all the latest information. Don't forget to see you class representative if you think of any fantastic ideas.

Rainbow Week

This week, we have been lucky to be joined in school by Jo from Educate and Celebrate. She held two whole school assemblies and workshops for Years 1-6 about celebrating difference and equality. We also met Matt Rood, who is working to support same sex couple who have adopted children. He read us the story of Prince Henry via Skype. This work is all part of our ongoing work towards the Rainbow Flag award and helped us to start our Art Week in style. Keep your eyes peeled on this page for pictures of our wonderful Art work we created throughout the week for our Hall Displays. We will not be putting any pictures up until after our Art Exhibition when parents / carers are invited to see our wonderful creations after school.

Celebrating Difference and Individuality

Towards the end of the last academic year we all started our pebble project. This celebrated how we are all different and unique. To show the true diversity of our school we decided that everyone should paint their own pebble to really celebrate how different we all are. Now that our new Reception class have joined us they have also been busy painting their own pebble to join our school display. Mrs Farrow and Miss Regan have been busy putting the display together and you can view this at the side of school near the Year 2 classrooms. We still have a few more pebbles to add.  Have a sneaky peek below!
