In response to the global coronavirus outbreak, St Peter’s School, York has implemented a strict visitor policy to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the whole school community. Following instructions from the government, the school site will be closed to pupils (apart from children of key workers) from the end of the day on Friday 20 March with no indication given of when that situation will change. We ask that all non-essential visitors also stay away from the school at this time. If your visit is essential, please read our visitor policy before you visit the school.

Cell project 2

J4 have been learning about cells as part of their distance learning biology project this term. 

The children had to choose whether to focus on an animal cell, plant cell or a specialised cell as part of the project, which also involved recreating the cell using objects found at home.

Florence was kind enough to share her experience of the project with us: "The cell I had picked was a nerve cell [an axon cell]. The nerve cell is a specialised cell and I thought it would be a good cell to make for my project.

"We walked around our house looking for materials to make it from, we found some Italian clay and decided to use it. Me and my mum made it together for the whole lesson and for an extra 30 minutes too. And I am glad that it turned out well in the end!"

Jo, Florence's mum, said: "A huge gigantic thank you to all teachers working so hard from home to educate our children. We know how hard you are all working."
