Reading Survey - please click on this link

Which authors do we like?  Where do we like to read?

The School Council have been asked to find out which authors we all enjoy reading.  We will be finding out if there is a good range of titles for independent reading in school.  We will also be finding out about reading habits in and out of school, including visits to libraries.

We will use this information to work out how best we can encourage each other to widen our choices and build our reading stamina.

We aim to have the results of this survey by half term.

Democracy Week 2016

We have had a very busy democracy week leading up to announcing our new school council members on Friday 14th October.

All the classes have been involved in learning about democracy across communities and across many areas of life.

We have been very lucky to have visitors this week, sharing our collective worship time.  Thank you very much to Councillor Rawlins for sharing her time with us on Wednesday and Reverend Rachel on Tuesday.

We would also like to say a huge thank you to the students and teacher from William Farr, who came to share their thoughts and ideas on democracy, and talked about their school council (Chloe - Head Girl, Joe - Head Boy, Molly - Deputy Head Girl, George - Deputy Head Boy, Hannah - Publicist, Minhyeon - Treasurer).

The School Council wanted to improve homework. We asked all of the children what they thought about homework and how we could make it better. The children wanted more project based homework. Year 3 are testing our ideas to see if they will work. Erin

We also got to help with the peer moderation at the school. There were lots of important visitors who came to look at our school. When they came to share their findings, the school councillors were invited to attend.

It was interesting at the meeting. We were able to tell what we thought about our school and hear what the teachers thought. Maaria

It was fun to share our thoughts about what we wanted at our school as well as to listen to the teachers. I found it useful to see what happens. Lily

It is important for us to help make choices at the school. When we needed a new lunchtime supervisior, Mrs Ruff asked us to write the letter.

We ran a stall at the Christmas tree lighting event. We had games for people to win sweets. It was fun to watch people play and to raise money for our council. My dad won. Callum

Remembrance Day is very important at our school. We supported with selling poppies and our Red for Remembrance Day.

Our first project of the year was to look at new play ground equipment. We worked with the Play and Sport Leaders to find out which equipment children would like at our school. The results have now gone to the Friends of School who are looking at funding the project.

We wanted to make sure we chose the best equipment for the children at our school. Maaria.

Our School Council are proud to be part of the Kyra School Council. This council is made up of many different school councils. We meet every term to look at school improvement. See below for some of the activities we have carried out as part of the Kyra Council this year.

The Kyra Council have a new badge. We were very excited to receive our first badges when we visited Westgate Academy in May.

Please see what we have been doing with the Kyra Council.

Members of the School Council visited Westgate Academy

We had to work together to build straw towers. This was fun. Then we looked around the school to find out about Maths. I liked being nosy. Barney

Members of the School Council visited Toynton All Saints

I liked building the house for the three little pigs. I liked searching the woods. It was fun to meet children from other schools and work together. Martha

The Kyra Council came to visit our school in term 4. They were looking at how our learning environment shows what we have been learning. It was very useful to hear the views of the children. The School Council have shared the findings with Mrs Ruff.

We had to show the other children around the school. We looked at the displays in the different classrooms. We had fun showing children around our school. Sophie

Visiting Bishop King Primary School to look at their church school ethos.

Members of the School Council visiting Marton School to see who eco friendly they are. When we came back to school, we shared our ideas with our own Eco Warriors.
