What we have been up to

Hearts for Homes Project

We have received some lovely photos back from some of the residents at Nutten Stoven Residential Home that have received our hearts. They have created a beautiful tree and used our hearts to decorate it.

Hearts for Homes

Organised by the School Council our pupils have been busy creating hearts to send out to the local community. The Hearts for Homes campaign has asked school’s to design and create their own hearts and send them to local care homes to help spread some festive cheer over the Christmas period, particularly to those people that may be feeling lonely during these uncertain times.

Here are some of our children’s hearts that we shall be sending out.

A member of our School Council went to post the letters out to the care homes and companies.

We are looking forward to receiving some pictures back in hope of putting smiles on some peoples faces.

Meeting 3 – 30th November

Today we reviewed how we felt Anti-bullying Week went.

The School Council felt that the children learnt something new through the week particularly more about the different types of bullying. Feedback from the other pupils was that they enjoyed wearing the odd socks to show their individuality and the team puzzles that they all participated in was really fun! They believe it helped all the children work together more.

The School Council then reviewed the results from their questionnaire. Here are our results below.

The School Council then reviewed the results and came up with how they feel they could help. These ideas shall be implemented in January.

The School Council also set another task for the children. Take a look at the video below that they created for all of the other children.

They also spent some time working together researching local care homes and companies to contact.

The skills we learnt during this meeting:

Meeting 2 – 20th October

During this meeting we began to organise Anti-bullying week. Each of us chose a different theme for our classes to focus on and discuss during the week.

We worked together to create a questionnaire to give to the children in school to get their views on our school and bullying. We thought it would be a great idea to gather this information together to see how we can make sure our school is the kindest place it can be.

Lastly we created puzzle pieces of how we can help ‘stamp out bullying.’ Once we finished these we began to put together a video that we would like to be played to all of the pupils at the beginning of the anti-bullying week. You can catch our video below, take a look!

Meeting 1 – 29th September

Today we was welcomed as being School Councillors. We got our badges that we shall wear with pride on our school uniform. We all discussed what we feel makes a good school councillor and the jobs we may have to carry out and do. We then all identified what we feel makes us a good School Councillor. Mrs.Parnell set us our first task of looking at and choosing some playground markings. Together we all had a look and gave reasons for our choices. We then spent some time emailing Mrs.Parnell back with our choices.
