The children in each class gave speeches this week to explain why they would make good School Council representatives. Each class then voted for their new School Council members by putting their votes into a ballet box. The votes were then counted and the new members were announced.
The school council members met with Mrs Olsen, one of our school governors, to talk about the possibility of changing the colour of our school jumpers in the future to purple. We put lots of good ideas across to Mrs Olsen and she said that the school will consult the parents to find out what they think. We can’t wait to find out what the outcome is!
The school council members decided to have an ‘American Independence Day’ themed lunch on 4th July to raise money for Hope and Hospitality Food Bank. As a school we raised £60 in total. The school council members received a lovely certificate for their efforts.
The school council members have been discussing our school uniform and thought that it might be nice to change it to purple to fit in with our school’s colour scheme. They wrote a lovely letter to the governors, asking them to consider their views.
The School Council members and some of the other children in school helped to create a brilliant display in our school corridor to tell visitors all about our running track. Our school also featured in the local newspaper this week. Read all about it here:
We have been using dice to help us find the total. We have enjoyed using the dice on the interactive whiteboard to count the spots, mark the number and then count how many altogether.
We have been playing lots of rhyming games this week. Here we are playing our favourite game ‘Cake Bake’.
