Next meeting – Feedback from the Pupil Parliament
The Pupil Parliament met for the last time today and reflected on the successful year. The children all realised that they had achieved a great deal for the school and were proud of their accomplishments. They also recognised that, despite their intial fears, they had all grown in confidence as leaders and had enjoyed the responsibility.
Please read our reflections on the value of Thankfulness. This has been our focus for this half term.
The School Council met with Mrs Parr last week to propose a few outdoor criteria for the sunny days ahead.
- Children wear a named hat outside, or a spare hat from the box in school
- Remind children to drink lots of water
- Put sunscreen on before you come to school
- Please don’t wear sunglasses as they may get broken and could be dangerous
- Could we possibly have the gazebos out for shade when it is hot? Reading/drawing area
- MDSA’s to have a water jug and cups especially on the field
- Could we have packed lunches out side?
- Litter picking monitors in each class, changed weekly, to wear a green band or high viz jacket and make sure the playground and field are tidy every Friday
- Could we possibly have the circus skills box outside in a coned off area?
Mrs Parr was very impressed with the School Councils ideas and has passed on these proposals to Mrs Griffin and the MDSA’s
Reflections on our achievements this year:
- Posters regarding litter have been successful and members of the Eco Council have noticed less litter since then
- The cake sale raised money to purchase plants which have made the front flower beds look more attractive to insects and visitors
- Planting around the school looks better
- Taps are running less – but need to be monitored
- Plastic Club with Mrs Jackson was very successful and the Eco Council want to thank her for running this
- Everybody felt that they had enjoyed being on the council and could see the effect of their work. They were proud of their achievements and were pleased that they had represented their class.
