SCHOOL COUNCIL UPDATE - NOVEMBER 2016
All school council members are working extremely hard to ensure that your views are regarded actioned as best we can. Please let your school council member know if there is anything we can do to make your life at school more exciting or better.
We are currently developing out clubs
We have ICT buddies club on Friday
We have art club on Thursday.
We have lending library on Tuesday.
The School Council have decided to make calendars the year 2017. They will be designing and making these over the next few weeks. The cost of these calendars are £2. They will be on sale during December. If you wish to guarantee you have a calendar then pre-order your calendar by giving £2 to Mrs Davies as soon as possible. The money raised will be used to buy wet playtime games for the classroom and then any money left over will be used to buy outdoor bibs for team games at lunchtime.
Support this cause - it is for you !!!!!!!!
We have held our elections and we have representatives for all the school council classes.
We have extra children from Year 5 and 6 to help us with developing out targets.
This year we want to work together to help each other develop great skills in different areas of learning.
We already have our IT Buddies group set up - it will continue every Friday at 12-45 in Year 2.
We are looking for some junior children who can support and help children in Year 2 develop their ICT skills. The children in Year 2 know what they want to learn and when you are partnered with them you can help them develop these skills.
Some want to learn to become better at using word, powerpoint and using the apps on the ipads.
Some want to learn how to develop their maths and english skills by using ICT programmes to enhance their learning.
If you want to support us - let Bonnie and Owyn know - they are the children who are supporting and organising this project.
We are running an ICT Day for the younger children to learn skills from the older children.
Please lert your councillor know what skills you have to offer and which skills you would like to develop.
We will see if we can match you to an ICT buddy.
The School Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.
Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.
We have an active School Council with a boys and girls representing their fellow pupils from each class from Year 1 to Year 6.
Each councillor is elected by their classmates at the beginning of the school year after a short presentation explaining why they should be elected.
Members of the Council take part in discussions and votes and also feed back any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council.
Members meet regularly with teacher representatives and Deputy.

OUR LENDING LIBRARY HAS BEEN A GREAT SUCCESS SO FAR.
WE HAVE HAD LOTS OF BOOKS DONATED AND WE HAVE BOUGHT LOTS OF BOOKS FROM CHARITY SHOPS AND THE INTERNET.
THERE ARE LOTS OF CHILDREN ENJOYING THE BOOKS AND THE SERVICE OF THE LENDING LIBRARY.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR BOOKS BACK TO SCHOOL SO THAT WE CAN SHARE THE BOOKS WITH EVERYONE.
THE LENDING LIBRARY WILL BE LAUNCHED ON MARCH 10TH - THE DAY WE CELEBRATE WORLD BOOK DAY. LET YOUR REPRESENTATIVE KNOW WHAT BOOKS YOU LIKE TO READ.
WE ARE TRYING TO FIND BOOKS THAT YOU LIKE IN THE CHARITY SHOPS
This week we raised over £90 towards our Lending Library Project.

Superb organisation by the School Council members.
Please keep supporting us by donating any unwanted books to the Library.
We hope to get it up and running the first week after half term.
