This morning we have been looking at all the Christmas jumper designs that children in our school from YR to Y6 have created.  We found it very hard to choose because they were really good, there were some great colourful ideas and everyone did their personal best by creating imaginative and impressive designs!  There were lots of great ideas and we would like to thank everyone for participating, but we could only choose 1 girl and 1 boy from each class. The winners will be announced before lunchtime and those children will have a go at actually making their design into a small Christmas jumper with Mrs Channon and Mrs Crompton. It's only fair to...

School Council Autumn Half Term

School Council Autumn Half Term

During this half term we have already conducted 2 class councils which take place on a Wednesday morning, 9 -9:30am. The first council meeting we introduced ourselves to our classes and explained our role as councillors. We then asked the children to write down the 6 most important things they think the council should work on over the year. We are currently going through these responses and will feedback to the classes next half term. The 2nd class council we held was all about water! We have signed up to the ‘Wise up to Water challenge’ which aims to promote drinking more water as a healthy option. The children have been set a challenge to drink more water whilst in school and on Thursday 23rd October we will see which class has won! The children have designed posters and water bottles to help promote drinking more water and some of these are around school. We have had a fun and busy half term but we look forward to working on some more projects after the break. Mrs Channon and the Council   It's only fair to...

What have we done so far?

What have we done so far?

In September the council held a class council session. We asked : Tell us the 6 most important jobs they would like the council to do.         You said: The willow dome has become messy and needs cutting. The boys are not keeping their toilets clean. The y3/4 toilet door is broken. You all asked for worry boxes in your classes. You asked for more equipment for break times. Wet play times are causing issues. We did: Wrote a letter to Mr Dean about the toilet door, it is now fixed. Wrote a letter to Mrs Reynolds and Mrs Canning to ask gardening club to tidy the willow, this has now been trimmed by the council gardeners. Mrs Channon used the Sainsbury’s vouchers to get some equipment for break times, this has been shared between classes and are used daily. Worry boxes are in most classes and councillors will continue to ask for all to be in place. The council met today with Mrs Channon Thursday 19th December to discuss the issues raised at the last class council regarding wet play times. In the new year I will let you all know what the issues are and what we are going to do about it. Merry Christmas!! Mrs Channon It's only fair to...
