This year, we have been very busy! Each week, School Councillors meet and discuss current events and issues and decide ways to improve our school. As a voice for pupils, our school councillors are confident to speak in front of the whole school and will pass on messages to their current classes. We are 'Take Care' children and we are proud to promote this!
Our events this year:
- Parliament week - We learnt about the importance of voting for adults, and what this means for our country. We then taught this to our classes and encouraged them to understand their rights and responsibilities as a child. Each class had their own age-appropriate vote in our very own general election!
- Children in Need - We decided on some great ways to fundraise for Children In Need. We successfully managed to organise a 'Pin the eye-patch on Pudsey' game, a charity football match, and a non-uniform day. We raised £235 from this!
- Remembrance Day - Each break time, we sold poppies, wristbands and other fun gifts around school to raise money for all those who fought for our country in the war. We were very proud of ourselves!
- Anti-bullying week - we set up games to play outside and encouraged many other children to play with us. We made sure the rules were fair and that everyone could join in! We continued this throughout the year and made ourselves be a 'buddy' to those who needed a friend. We also lead an assembly about being kind to each other, even though people are different.
- Christmas post box - Each break-time in December, we successfully sorted out all the Christmas cards and delivered them to each class.
- Christmas Church service - we proudly prepared our own version of the nativity story and read our parts in church, alongside performing with the rest of the school.
- Internet Safety - We continuously share with our class how to be safe on the internet, and we are in process of making child-friendly posters to display around school.
- Healthy Eating - our biggest project yet! We have spent many weeks encouraging healthy eating across school and we are determined to change the way children think about their snacks. We have created posters, lead an assembly and took photographs of snacks to promote healthy eating. We have also created a competition to encourage children to eat healthily!
