Visit of Revd David Cowie to St Peter’s Primary School, Wymondham The recently appointed Priest-in-Charge, Revd David Cowie visited the Class 3 pupils at Wymondham St Peter’s CE Primary School to answer questions about Christianity. The children had previously thought of questions they would like to ask him, including why he wanted to become a vicar and what inspired him to be a Christian. They also asked questions about the bible and the Christian church. Grace in Year 5 commented, “It was very educational because we learnt about God and it was very interesting because Revd David was happy…
After a lovely summer break it was great to see our children returning for a fresh start the new academic year. Whilst our youngest children are at the start of their new school lives, it was also pleasing to hear about those who left us in July and we wish them well.

For the children who have returned for a new school year, this is a good time to set their sights on being as ambitious as possible during…

Saturday 25Th February was a big day for Wymondham, St Peter's. We had been training for this for months!!

The Christingle service was celebrated again this year at a full St Peter's Church at Wymondham, led by pupils from both Wymondham St Peter's and Croxton Kerrial Schools. Prayers were said and songs and hymns sung to the organ accompaniment of St Peter's School music teacher, Mr Peter Nelmes. Excitement was aroused in both children and adults when the Christingle oranges were lit. An extra special Christian family atmosphere was obtained for a few magic moments when the lights were switched off and the church was only illuminated by the flickering lights of the burning candles.

Our topic in class 1 has been 'People who help us.' Yesterday we had a visit from two police officers from Melton Mowbray police station. The children had the opportunity to ask questions and find out everything they wanted to know about the profession. They even drove the police car onto our school field so that the children could get a really close look. The highlight for many was when they turned the sirens on! http://www.meltontimes.co.uk/news/education/melton-police-officers-visit-primary-school-to-talk-about-crime-1-7705405

Children at St Peter’s Primary School in Wymondham have gone back in time to learn how bread was baked. Class three pupils spent a day visiting owner Nigel Moon’s working Whissendine Windmill.

On Friday 11th November, Wymondham St Peter's gathered in the hall for our Remembrance Service. All the classes had produced work to share, including beautiful artwork and poems. There were also prayers written by the children, in remembrance of our servicemen. The school council laid a poppy wreath, made by our Reception Class's hand prints. It was a very moving service.
