One of the our School Learning Council’s first jobs was to choose a charity to support in Autumn One and Children in Need was higher on the list. The school was a sea of yellow today as we raised over £200 for this amazing charity. We held an assembly to discuss our choices as individuals and how this linked with the British Value or individual Liberty.
Today, our school Learning Council went to Orchard View Care Home to chat with the residents and draw their portraits. The residents loved it and so did the children. We will be coming back to sing soon with other members of our school community in the next few weeks.
…to our School Learning Council for raising money through the book raffle to buy new playground equipment for every class. Our pupils are making a huge impact on school already- well done everyone.
At today’s Learning Council meeting, we looked at fund raising ideas and looked at ways we could raise money to buy more playground equipment. One way, was through a raffle so we have made posters to raffle off some signed David Walliams’ books donated to school by the PTA. The pupil Council will draw the raffle on the 27th of October in Collective Worship.
…and we looked at producing ideas to create a school song linked to our vision and values. The pupils worked with Mr Ormondroyd to create ideas and melodies. We can’t wait to see the finished song.
These pupils were elected by their peers to represent their classmates after standing and taking part in an election. Huge congratulations to all.
Today we received our certificate of participation from Barnsley Hospice to thank us for the money we raised for them over Christmas. We raised £646.50 for them and the same for school. A huge thank you to everyone for supporting a cause close to so many peoples’ hearts.
Our School Council raised just over £300 in our bun sale just before half term which has funded these amazing book bags for Key Stage One.
We can’t wait to see who will take them home for the first time on Friday!
…to create links in the local community. Pupils drew portraits of the residents and talked to them about school and what they enjoy doing out of school. We are hoping to make this a regular outing for pupils in Key Stage Two.
…by holding a ‘Bun Week’ to raise funds to buy some special book bags to encourage reading at home. We designed posters to advertise the event. More details will follow in the newsletter this week!
Today our wonderful School Council put up our Christmas tree in the hall.
