Welcome to Our School
This week we had elections for a new Student Council. Children nominated themselves to represent their class on the council. They produced a manifesto to explain why they have the skills and qualities to be a great Student Councillor. The children also produced posters and made a speech in front of their class, to persuade people to vote for them. On Thursday the children voted for a boy and girl in their class. Results were then announced on Friday during a special assembly. Well done to all the candidates who took part and congratulations to the winners.
Over the last few weeks, children in Key Stage Two have been studying William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. We invited a theatre company (Say2productions) into school to perform the play for us. This was followed by a series of workshops and performances by the children. In class we have been writing spells, creating character profiles and producing story maps. Children in Year 5 and 6 also made a character box as part of a homework project.
We will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 5th March. We are asking children to come dressed up as a favourite book character. There will be prizes for the best dressed in each class. It will be a fun day with a parade, games, quizzes and competitions.
