SCHOOL COUNCIL Home Learning Challenge:
Although we are all at home with our families we can continue to help others in the same way the School Council does. Have you managed to help someone in your community, raised money for a charity or made a positive difference to your home environment ? We would love to hear about it and see any photos ....
Home Learning Challenge for Worship Committee:
Can you design some new prayer paper that we could use when back in school. It will need to have a space where children can write their own prayers (they may need lines to ensure their writing is straight), but the paper will need some suitable illustrations around the edge or on the corners. It can be A4 or A5 size (no bigger).
You can design this on the computer or by hand.
When we are back at school, this paper will be put in the peaceful room and classrooms for children to use.
Home Learning Challenge for Eco Council
Can you remember how we talked about the 3 R's - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle ?
Have you any examples of how you have done this at home ?
For example, have you found something old and mended it or made it into something new and useful ? Or found a way to save energy or money to help your family ?
Please send photos of your projects to us- we would love to see them.
Our School Council is made up of 8 elected councillors from Years 1 to 6. Elections take place at the beginning of the autumn term, and we keep our position for 1 year. We have been elected by the pupils in the school to think about ways to improve our school and raise money for charity. At our first meeting, we discuss the roles and responsibilities and we vote for a chairperson, vice-chairperson, secretary, vice secretary and treasurer. We all have very important roles and an equal say! We are consulted on when changes in school happen. We represent our school at community events such as our fetes and we run stalls to raise money. We organise special days and events so that we have fun and work for a specific charity.
In our school we have eco warriors which help the school to be more eco- friendly. At the beginning of the year we were all voted in to be part of the eco council.
We meet regularly to make school decisions and work with our caretaker to ensure our school is tidy and making energy savings where we can. We arrange fun days in school to raise money. We are hoping to create a nature area in school in the next academic year.
Worship Committee is a group of pupils who meet regularly to evaluate and give feedback on collective acts of worship. They are also responsible for the Peaceful Room to ensure that it is a place to go and be quiet, reflective and pray. The worship committee is made up of elected councillors from Years R to 6. Elections take place at the beginning of the autumn term, and they keep their position for 1 year. Worship Committee meet with other schools and evaluate their worship too. They make recommendations to the teaching staff on ways to improve or change our practice.
