School Safety Campaign 2015

This week in school we announced the winners of our poster competition…

The school council had patrolled the school grounds early one morning and discovered that a lot of children were riding bikes and scooters through the school grounds and between the infant and junior school. They also noticed that adults were not driving safely around the school or parking correctly in the car parks. The councillors noticed a lot of worrying things and decided that we needed more notices/posters around the school grounds to remind children and adults how to keep safe…so they launched a poster competition!

We were amazed with the response from the children and we had 86 entries. It was very hard to judge all the wonderful posters but we did! We decided to award a prize to one person from every class and that the prize would be a reflective safety jacket and bicycle reflector.

We also decided that everyone who entered would also receive a bicycle reflector.

We hope that everyone likes their prizes and hope that you notice the posters up around the school grounds, after the Easter Holidays.

Red Nose Day 2015

What a great day we all had in school!

We all made our faces ‘funny for money’ including all the adults…

We had a lot of fun throughout the day and here is a photo to prove it!


Christmas Shoebox Appeal

We had a fantastic amount of shoeboxes donated last year for ‘The Rotary Club Shoebox Appeal’. Before they were collected and shipped to children in Romania and other Eastern European countries, Mrs George thanked the children for their kindness and the School Councillors and our Chair of Governors Mrs Lowe, had a photo with all the boxes.

Well Done everyone who donated such wonderful presents and would have made a less fortunate child very happy at Christmas.

School Council 2015

Welcome to the School Council of 2015.

We are James, Elisha, Zoe, Finley, Lexie, Mia, Charlotte, Tate and Sabine.

We are a very busy and enthusiastic team of councillors who were chosen by our class. We have a meeting every fortnight with Mrs Dewey, we help Mrs George by interviewing new adults who would like to work in our school, we have judged two recent competitions in school and we are always looking for new ideas to use in our school.

If you have any ideas please share them on our blog.



Important Interviews

Today the school council interviewed two prospective teachers.

Following an assembly last week about the right to have good teachers the school councilors spoke to their peers about what makes a good teacher. Ideas were discussed during last week’s school council meeting and the children came up with the following questions…

Are you a fun teacher?
How are you helpful?
What is your favourite thing to teach?
Are you strict?
How do you get to know children?
What is your favourite thing about maths?
What kind things do you do for children?
Are you active and healthy?
How are you respectful?
What responsibilities do you have?

The school council should be very proud of themselves. They demonstrated all the LEAP values and how they are an asset to the school. Well done to all involved.

Mrs George and Mrs Ricketts are very proud of you 🙂

Safe Tree Climbing Campaign

The school council have designed leaves for all children to write or draw the safe choices they make when climbing trees inside them.

We will make a display in the hall to remind everyone of the safe choices they can make when climbing trees.

Caroline Dinenage Visit

Today there was an MP visiting our school. The School Councillors showed Caroline around the school. The digital leaders Grace and Joseph went with them to take photos. The school council showed the MP EVERY class in the school, the hall, the courtyard and year r’s play. Caroline asked lots of questions and she was very interested in our school. She loved looking at our enthusiastic learners!

School Council Research

All school councilors have been given until 7th February to discuss Question 1 with their class.

Each class needs to think about which areas of the school grounds they like, in the Summer and which ones they like in the Winter.

Please post both lists on our blog by the 7th February 2013.

There will be no school council on the 31st January as Mrs Ricketts is on a course.
