The children said that everyone in their class had been taking part in lots of wonderful activities within
their lessons and after school.

Modou-Lamin ‘I like Guided Reading. I am enjoying reading ‘Tremors’.
Leah ‘Our school Christmas dinner was gorgeous.’

Agenda
 

We continued to speak about stewardship and how we can help others and our environment.
The School Council came to the meeting with suggestions from their class mates about how to become
more environmentally aware. Each year group came up with lots of great ideas.
Below are the five things we are going to implement:
1. Use re-usable drink bottles at lunch time.
2. Use sandwich boxes rather than eg foil or cling film.
3. Turn smartboards off during break, lunch time and any lesson time they are not being used.
4. Recycle batteries.
5. Teachers turn of the computer in the ICT suite once they have used it.


The School Council have written a letter to parents and children to inform them of our ideas and hope that
they will support us. The children also know to encourage their class mates to take ownership, it isn’t just
School Council who can turn the lights off.
