# Week beginning 22/10/19

Primary 6B have came back to school enthusiastic and ready to learn after having a lovely October break.

Waiting for Charlie and Murray were letters from the author they had written to in Primary 5.   David Baddiel had written back much to the boys’ excitement.

Charlie said that he was really excited when he saw the letter and he liked David Baddiel’s comment at the end saying that he gets his ideas from his imagination and from his son.

# Our class representatives.

Well done to our newly elected representatives who were elected this week.

Lauren is our new Class Council rep.

Well done also to Jay, William and Callum who also stood.

Roderick is our new Sustainable Squad rep. Well done also to Alfie and Erin who also stood for election.

Roderick wowed us with his speech which was;

I believe that the environment is the most important thing because without the environment we wouldn’t exist. We have amazing mountains, incredible seas and breath taking animals that need protecting. WE CAN’T lose them!

I promise that I will help the Sustainability Squad engage with the whole school and do something about the environment.

Well done to everybody -they were closely fought elections.
