We at Belgrave St Peter’s Primary School would like to help others as we think about Christmas time. Through discussions some children wanted to support and start to break down the barriers and misconceptions around homelessness.
Across the UK, there are a large number of charities working at a local and national level to fight homelessness. These charities provide help and advice for people who are rough sleeping.
So the group ‘Belgrave Student Charity Committee’ have chosen to donate to homeless charities, but we really need your help too!
If you would like to donate, these are some items which would really help…
Small bottles of toiletries (shower gels, soaps, deodorants, wash clothes, toothbrushes & toothpaste)
First aid items
Sanitary pads and tampons
Socks and underwear
Hats & Gloves
These will be donated across Leicester to help those in need this Christmas.
Please if you are able to help please send donations in to school by Friday 14th December 2018.

Thank you to all those that attended our 123 Magic short session about positive behaviour strategies.
123 Magic course has been developed especially for children and young people with challenging behaviour. It uses simple, practical ideas which you’ll be guided through step-by-step by Ian Hall, who has been working as an ADHD Specialist Coach in Leicester for the last 13 years.

It was a great day as they joined 500 other pupils from across the city.

On Tuesday 26Th April, Year 2-6 participated in an anti-bullying production called Hope. We all watched a performance telling a story of a girl who was being bullied at school.
After the show, Year 3-6 were lucky enough to take part in a workshop with the actors to discuss it. We had to think about the story from the different perspectives of the characters and consider what we would have done in that situation; which characters we liked; which characters we felt sorry for and offer our advice. It was really good fun, very engaging and thought provoking.
D'Miah (Y3): I learned that bullying is not very nice and not very good.
Malik (Y4): I learned that if someone is bullying you, you don't take it out on someone else, you tell someone.
Jaiden (Y5): We learned that it's not okay to bully. She was a bully because her Dad was being nasty to her at home.
Melissa (Y6): I learned that I should tell someone if I am being bullied.
Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park, London was a great success! Thanks to all the families who came along and enjoyed the fun!
Film Club children enjoyed their visit to Vue Cinema, where they watched 'Annie'. As part of a follow up all children completed a review online with 'Into Film', part of a Channel 4 project.
This will form the conclusion of this half-term work of the Christian value ‘Thankfulness’.
If you are able to donate any dried foods or tins for this event please bring them in on Thursday 15th October, we would really appreciate your support at this important time as ‘Harvest Festival reminds Christians of all the good things God gives them. This makes them want to share with others who are not so fortunate’.
The items received are to be donated to local ‘Food Banks’ and the ‘Migrant Crisis’.
We appreciate all your support.

BIKE WEEK OCTOBER 5th-9th 2015
Wayne Brewin our ‘Bike It Champion’ has been involved with Belgrave St. Peter’s since last year, offering bike skills sessions to all children. This has installed confidence in our pupils who have in turn gained some personal achievements.
To continue this great work we are to offer a Bike Week October 5th - 9th, whereby your child should ride their bike to school every day; this will be recorded daily and your child will be entered into a prize raffle (only those that cycle to school every day).
On Thursday October 8th only children who ride their bike to school on day can attend our Healthy Bike Breakfast, from 8.15am in the Hall.
All year groups will attend a bike skills session with Wayne during the day.
From 2.30 - 3pm Year 3, 4, 5, and 6 pupils will have the opportunity to participate in a ‘Sponsored Cycle’ This will helps to raise funds for cycle equipment for the school, investing in the children’s future sessions.
We would greatly appreciate your support with this event as they are learning valuable skills in cycle safety.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask me.
Thank you for your continued support.

Further news we had a visit from the designer yesterday for our woodland area, to discuss our design ideas. We are aiming for this space to be used by all and intend of having more seating space, a small pond, a wild flower area, an area for investigative learning (mini-beasts/habitats), and some shelter/canopies from the trees. The work is to start during the summer holidays and hopefully functional for our new autumn term. This is very exciting news and we look forward to the results.
We will also like some volunteers at some stage to maintain this area over the coming years, so if you would like to help please lets us know!
