10.11.2023 – This week, some of our school council members were chosen to represent our school at Middlesbrough Cenotaph to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers and those who are still protecting our country today. They laid crosses and poppy painted stones during the ceremony to show their respect. We were extremely proud of the way they conducted themselves during the service.
23.10.2023 – This week, each member of the school council collected data about Maths in school. They asked the pupils in their class a series of statements to answer and when we return after half term we will be analysing this data to inform the children the outcomes throughout school.
Also, some members of the school council have been chosen to represent Newham Bridge at the Cenotaph in Middlesbrough during a Remembrance Service on Thursday 9th November. They will have received a letter today which needs completing and returning on Tuesday 7th November to ensure participation. During the service, the children will be placing a cross in memory of those who fought in war, please take some time to discuss this with your child to ensure they are aware of the importance of this event.
16.10.2023 – This week, we have discussed Healthy Eating through school. We initially met and came up with some ideas to improve children’s awareness and celebrate when healthy choices have been made. Our ideas were shared with the children through school and with Mrs Hewitt-Best.
As a result of these conversations, we have been able to implement an immediate change. First, the children throughout school with gain House Points from the kitchen staff when they have made a health choice during their school meal collection. All children in key stage one will receive a sticker if they have completed their school meal or packed lunch. Finally, all children in key stage two will receive a TIP (Ticket in the Pot) if they have completed their school meal or packed lunch.
The School Council will continue to monitor the impact of this and other changes may occur next half term.
