The Junior School Council was assembled earlier this year, and were busy straight away with contributing to our school, specifically focusing on how all of the amazing learning takes place in our school. They went around the entire school to visit the learning environments; wrote letters to a local care home to organise a visit and also wrote a job description for new teachers. They showed great maturity when they met with school governors and our school improvement advisor to discuss their learning and their successes in the various foundation subjects.
Most recently, they have helped our MFL Subject Leader in developing questions for French lessons to help children further their conversational skills in French.
This week, our school council children reviewed their learning around keeping safe on their devices. They looked at how we have shared out the new curriculum this school year and were able to collaborate with children from other year groups to understand what they will be learning next year. The children were very knowledgeable about their responsibilities and rights when they are online, and spoke fondly about memorable lessons in their classrooms that have helped them to understand how to be safe online. They were particularly knowledgeable about spending an appropriate amount of time on their devices and are looking forward to reminding others in their classes on their top tips as they shared in the meeting.
This week, the school council made advertisements to help us recruit new members! The children reflected on their responsibilities and their qualities that help them in their role, and also outlined the benefits of being part of the school council. The children then went round to each year area of the school to put up their posters themselves. Please ask your child to speak to their class teacher if they have spotted a poster around the school and are interested in being involved!
