School Council

Welcome to our

School Council Page!

Wellbeing

 

Due to Covid19 we cannot run School Council as usual.  However, we want to ensure our children’s voices are heard so we carried out a Pupil voice questionnaire about returning to school in Spring term 2021.  Since welcoming the children back we have focused upon wellbeing and ensuring the children are happy and ready to learn.

 

To support them with this we asked…

 

How do you feel about coming back to school?

 

What is the best thing about being back at school?

 

Do you feel safe at school?  How do you know?

 

What can you do if you feel worried at school?

 

Each year group has designed their curriculum to meet the needs of their learners upon returning.


Children in Key Stage 1 completed a network hand of people they can talk to or strategies they can use if they are feeling worried.
                                        

Reception

 

Reception have been enjoying Forest School and exploring their outdoor learning environment.

I am happy because I get to see my teachers and friends.    (Kingfisher class)

 

The children have also been taking part in weekly woodwork sessions.

 

I like learning new things at school.  I missed own learning.    (Starling class)

 

 

Year One

 

In Year 1 the children have enjoyed learning all about the Circus and have taken part in a Circus inspirational day.

 

I felt nervous and shy at first but then I was excited to be at school. (Goldfinch class)

Each classroom has a ‘Calm corner’ to develop children’s emotional literacy as well as sensory resources to support self-regulation.

Year Two

 

In Year 2 the children have explored a range of books linked to PSHRE and growth mindset. 

 

I feel safe at school because I am with my friends and we wash our hands to stay safe.  (Barn Owl)

The children have enjoyed learning about ‘The Great Fire of London’.  They created their own artwork and even used a quill and ink.

I like learning new things.  If I get stuck I will use things in the classroom to help me.

At the beginning of the school year we hold a School Council election.  Each class votes for one boy and one girl to represent their class and share their ideas at our weekly School Council meetings.
 

Due to COVID restrictions at the moment, unfortunately School Council meetings are unable to take place. As soon as council can meet again, this page will be updated with the council information.

 

School Council is all about:

 

Trying to make the school a safe and happy place for everybody.  Together we will share everyone's ideas and try to make the school an even better place.   
 
So far we have:

*Found ways to make the playground more exciting.

*Helped out with special events in school.
*We suggested a story competition for World Book Day and even judged the winners.
*Designed buddy vests for the playground.
*We have walked around the school to see what we can improve and what we like already.
*We have a school council post box.
*We have class folders to share our ideas.

Great Fire of London Inspirational Day

Year Two wowed parents and children from across the school  with their fantastic learning about the Great Fire of London.  Children had re-created a London street-scene from the fire and everyone had the chance to write using a quill and ink.
 

 

 

 
Science Week 2019-20
What a busy week we have had...solving the mystery of the missing Science mascot by exploring a crime scene.  We went all around the school trying out our scientific skills in different investigations.  We made predictions about exploding potions, observed colour-changing magic, answered questions and solved problems.  The we invited our grown ups into school to see our amazing Science skills in action!

 

 

 
Jack and the Beanstalk Inspirational Day
Year Two got dressed up and enjoyed a range of fun activities linked to their class story of 'Jack and the beanstalk'.  This included planting beans which reached up to their own Giant's castle and taste testing different types of beans.

 

 

Here are the most recent update from the School Council:

 

14/06/2019 - This week we proudly shared what School Council has achieved this year in our School Council assembly.
We have also enjoyed Science day!  We did lots of interesting experiments and even brought in our own investigations from home. 
Reception had fun making butter from cream, blowing giant sock bubbles and popping their own popcorn.
In Year One we tried out some colour experiments which were really cool.  We can also make an orange float or sink!
In Year Two we made lava lamps, monster mazes with magnets and found out the secret to making raisins dance!
Here are some pictures from our day.
