Pupil Council

Hi everyone,

This weekend we have asked the children to think whether they would like to put themselves forward to become a Pupil Council representative for our classes.  If so, we have asked that children  discuss at home the qualities they have that would enable them to do this job well.  We will be asking them to share these qualities with our classes over the next few days.   We will be electing a Pupil Council member for each class this week.

Hi there, as we head into that time of year we are developing a bank of games and activities to keep us busy during wet intervals and lunchtimes.  We would be very grateful for donations of any suitable unwanted toys (e.g. lego, cars etc) and games (e.g. jigsaw puzzles, board games etc) to help achieve this and ensure everyone is busy and having fun at these times.
