Year 6 have been extremely busy this term. As you know our topic has had a History ‘driver’ and the children have thoroughly enjoyed exploring and finding out about The Battle of Britain. Hopefully you were able to share the children’s work and projects with us on Thursday 12th December; if you didn’t you missed a treat.
School Council enjoyed organising our Bedtime Story day, this new day has been introduced to our School calendar as a result of School Council’s UK Parliament Week vote. Across the school children dressed in pyjamas and shared their favourite stories and books. This was a fantastic day with a great focus on reading. Thank you to School Council for organising, arranging and coming up with the idea!
If you love Christmas and also love books, then have a go at our Twelve Books of Christmas competition. Pick up a paper copy from Mrs Cornish in the library from Monday or click the link below. Entries to be returned to the library by Friday 13th December please, when there will be a draw of the correct entries. There will be a prize for the winner of the draw, and all entrants can bask in the glory of being very knowledgeable about books! The competition is open to pupils, parents/carers and staff.
School Council counted and verified the votes and the winner of our UK Parliament Week School Poll was:
Bedtime story day (263 votes).
School Council will now work on setting a date and arranging this exciting new day. School Council all received a certificate for helping organise and run our polling station and UKPW event.
In other news School Council have new notebooks to help record pupil comments from their classes. All pupil comments are then discussed during our weekly meetings.
This year for UK Parliament week School Council decided to hold a whole school vote. School Council set up a vote for a whole school special day. UKPW allowed our School Council to find out more about the voting process, including using ballot papers. School Council members enjoyed communicating the vote to their classes and helping run the voting station.
