Exciting news today for the School Council – today was election day and the new reps were announced! Before announcing the new Council, Ms Burgess asked us all what the School Council does? “It represents each class in meetings and school decisions”, “they organise events” and a key development from last year’s School Council, was the change of menu to focus on healthy eating and making healthy choices.
Well done to our new reps! We’re looking forward to what changes, developments and decisions you’ll be making this year.
Forest School will be working on a beautiful new mural for the junior and infant entrances at the front of our school and will be selecting a few drawings from our pupils, which will be incorporated into their design! The development is to link in with Forest’s Art and Community Action Awards, as well as creating a more inviting and colourful entrance for our children.
This week, Wildlife Club researched, painted and drew some British Wildlife creatures, to be in with a chance of becoming part of the mural. If your child would like to enter a Wildlife painting – please enter before Wednesday 21st September! They must be finished in paint, felt tip or pastel. No pencil. Your critter also needs to fill the whole page (A4)! (Please ensure names and year groups are on the back).
Let’s get creative!
