Tigers - Jessica & Leo

Foxes - Connor & Izzy

Badgers - Phoebe & Harry

Otters - Caitlin & Evie

Starfish - Jack & Teddy

Seahorse - Oliver & Elowen

Our Opening Ceremony!

 

On Friday 13th of October 2023 our school council representatives welcomed guests to our school for our grand opening ceremony! They greeted our guests in the school hall before our whole school collective worship. The school council then attended the cutting of the ribbon and blessing ceremony at the front of our school with our guests. The school council then gave our guests a fantastic tour of the new parts of our school. After the tours, they served our guests refreshments of drinks and nibbles in the school hall. Thank you to the school council for your support with our opening ceremony. 

 

School Council Meeting - 6.11.23

 

In our meeting today we discussed why we wanted to be class representatives for the school council. We thought about the following questions:

Why do I want to be a member of the school council?

What would I like to do as a member of the school council this year?

What can we do together to make our school even better?

 

The children thought of lots of ideas and had a good discussion with their peers. They are now going to ask their own classes for further ideas of how we can make our school even better.

15.1.24 - School Council Meeting

 

After collecting pupil views of how to make our school better, the school council have decided to focus their attention on wet play times to begin with, but we need your help!

 

Do you have any toys at home that you no longer play with and would like to donate so that we can use them at school?

 

We are looking for:

 

  • Board games - please only donate games that do not take too long to play, have all the pieces, are age appropriate and are fun! 
  • Card games
  • Puzzles - again please make sure there are no lost puzzles pieces.

 

 

If you have something you would like to donate. Please give your donations to the school office, your class representative or Mrs Baker in Ducklings class.
