Our first project of the term is to help restock the school libraries. The councillor's have surveyed the children's reading habits, identified their favourite genres and have researched books to buy. 


Not only that, they only had a budget of £50 (courtesy of last year's Fiver Challenge held in July) so needed to research different prices, in order to get the best deals. 


 Another project launched this year by the Student Council was the Lunchtime Dance Club. The School Council wanted to create clubs during lunch for other pupils. After some research, it was decided a Dance Club was the preferred choice. 

It has proved popular with both older and younger students.

Our New Project: Designing the new playground 

We need to think about:


How it will be used for P.E.

How every class in the school can benefit.

What games can be played 

How to celebrate mathematics across the school. 

Jack wanted a giant hundred square to help children learn their tables. 

Dana created a series of maths challenges to warm up the Early Bird Club. 

Abby, Harriet and Dana creating lessons to teach Class 1 during assembly time. 

First Meeting - The topic this term is promoting enjoyment of maths across the school! 

 The School Council elected Charlotte as their Online Safety Ambassador.

The Student Council are incredibly enthusiastic about reading. They wanted to share their favourite books with the school and spread the word about books other children may not have read. 

These are a few of their practice reviews. 

 All the Councillors reviews will go up on the board. Once they have reviewed theirs, they will go out and start recording other children's favourite reads! 



Using the Aurasma app, children will use I pads and try to answer the questions placed around the garden, by the student council. 

Creating the Learning Garden

Message from the Chairwoman:

Our aim is to make our learning garden interactive for all children to explore. 


 Using augmented reality, the students are busy creating short films to superpose on various parts of the garden. 


 We also used our school council budget to help plant and grow flowers, herbs and other plants to help beautify and expand the learning garden. 

 We have to make sure all our plants are watered regularly - especially the tomatoes! 


 We have to watch out for slugs!!!!
