Years 5 and 6 School Council Children in Need Bear competition

   KS1 School Council: Litter picking 



What we've been up to so far.

We have talked to the pupils in the rest of our classes to find out what ideas they have for making our school an even better place. We have organised a litter picking rota to ensure our playgrounds are neat and tidy and a safe, pleasant place to play in. New playground buddies have been trained to help those children who find it difficult to find someone to play with or have fallen out during play time.

What we would like to do next.

We would like to have new playground games that children can play at lunch-times. We want to encourage other children in the school to reduce the amount of plastic we are using so that we can help our environment.

KS2 (Years 3 and 4) School Council:

Healthy Eating -choosing healthy options  



    What we've been up to so far:

 This term Years 3 and 4 have been working on encouraging healthy eating at break and lunch times.

 The councillors led individual class assemblies at the beginning of the term to discuss the topics that they could focus       on.  These included encouraging healthy eating, reducing food waste and the use of reusable containers for children's       snacks. The vote was then counted and healthy eating came out as our top priority for this term. The school councillors     have created a mind map of ideas to help guide their Autumn project which was then fed back to the children in their       classes.  

    What we plan to do next:

  • We will be creating posters to put around school in order to encourage a whole school approach to healthy eating at    break and lunch times.
  • School councillors will liaise with their classes to have healthy eating mascots who will offer fruit during break and lunch times in order to encourage children to make sensible choices. 
  • We will be discussing opportunities for school councillors to positively reinforce children’s snack choices. This will be something that we will trial in Years 3 and 4 before possibly introducing to the rest of the school.  

 KS2 (Years 5 and 6) School Council: 

Lunch time activities


 What we've been up to so far:

 This term Years 5 and 6 are working on creating and leading a range of games and activities to run at lunch time which will ensure participation from a wide range of children. The Year 5 and 6 school council recognise the importance of all children having safe and inclusive activities to engage with during their breaks. We have reported the findings from our meetings back to classes and have surveyed them for further changes and activities they would like to see. In addition to this, we have run a 'dress a bear' competition in aid of Children in Need.

    What we plan to do next:

  • Year 5 and 6 school councillors will be trained to run the activities at lunchtimes and break times when appropriate.
  • We will continue to discuss issues raised by children in the school and act on these where we can. 
  • We are beginning discussions on how to make our school more eco-friendly and will seek opportunities to act on this.
