We are the new School Councillors this year. We wrote ‘Candidate Speeches’ and read them to our classes to try and persuade our classmates to vote for us. We then had a secret ballot where the children in our class had to vote for the person they wanted to represent their class. We were the children who received the most votes and are now the School Councillors for this year- we look forward to organising lots of exciting events in school
The Royal Wedding 2018
Wow! What a day we have had celebrating the Royal Wedding. Thank you so much to everyone that made the day a success. All children and staff made a superb effort to dress up, there were some fantastic outfits.
The 'Royal Picnic' was a huge success, everyone enjoyed eating their lunch in the sunshine and playing with the outdoor play equipment after.
The ice cream van even came in the afternoon!
Please see the photographs below to see how much fun we had - thank you again, for making the day special and memorable for everyone :)
As part of World Book Day we judged the 'design a cake' competition. Children were invited to design a cake in the theme of a book. Look at some of the fantastic designs below!
Children in Need - November 2017
As part of Anti-Bullying week we took part in an assembly with Mrs Emsley. At the beginning of the assembly she asked some of us to look in her special box and tell the rest of the children in the hall, if what we saw was special and unique. We all looked in and said it was - there would be nothing in the world, exactly the same. Lots of children when Mrs Emsley asked them what they thought was in the box, answered 'a gem' or 'a piece of jewellery' but it wasn't- in the box was...a mirror! When we looked in Mrs Emsley's special box, we saw our own reflection! It helped us to remember the message of Anti-Bullying Week - 'All different, all equal' - we are all different and unique, there is nobody in the world exactly the same as us, but our differences make us ALL special and equal - no one should be judged or treated differently for their differences.
We also joined in the assembly and reminded the rest of school, why people may bully others and what a person should do if they feel they are being bullied - TELL SOMEONE! :)
Safeguarding Week 9-13th October
School Council are running a competition to see which class in each year group, can create the best ‘Safeguarding Superhero’. Watch this space for the winning designs and messages from our superheroes on how to stay safe.
We have also looked at different areas of how we can keep ourselves safe-we looked at stranger danger, rail safety, road safety, healthy eating, healthy relationships and online safety. We looked at them in our classes, and our teachers also talked about them in assembly.
The School Council collected information from all the classes regarding what they thought the school rules should be. Click here to see what we came up with.
School Council News
The school council helped to raise money for the local victims of the recent floods through a non uniform day. We raised a fantastic £214.70 for this local cause.
We are have conducted a survey to collect pupil voice on our playground buddy system. The children felt that the buddy badges we were originally wearing weren't visible enough so school council have decided to use some of our funds to pay for special high visibility buddy jackets.
