In our school council meeting on 24th October we talked about friendships and the role of the Playground Buddies. The school council children decided that they would like to help the Playground Buddies on the yard at break times to act as support for the children on the yard and make sure that all children have someone to play with.

British Values

In our meeting on 10th October the children learnt all about British Values. They discussed the meaning and the importance of each of the British Values:


The rule of law

Individual liberty

Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith

The children then worked together to create a lovely display for our school corridor.

Firework fun

This week we have talked about staying safe around fires and fireworks. We have talked about the colours and the sounds of fireworks. We have moved like fireworks to music and we have made lots of firework pictures.

We have even been singing number rhymes during our planning time.

Another busy week in Nursery

We have been enjoying spending time outside in the rain mark making and learning all about the number ‘2’ this week.

School Council Badges

In the school council meeting this week the children were given their shiny new badges so that everyone knows they are school council members. They talked about what they would like to do as school council members and did some lovely writing for the special corridor display.

School Council Voting

The children at Monkton Infants School have been voting for their new school council members this week. Candidates from each class gave a speech about why they would make a good school council member. The classes then put their votes into a ballot box, the votes were counted and the new school council members were announced.
