Pupil's Voice

OUR SCHOOL, OUR IDEAS…

We decided as a whole school which charities to support this year and what two things we should develop in the school. We got into groups in a special assembly from Year 1 to Year 6 and discussed our ideas. We then voted on all of the ideas (see the Pupil Voice display at school). We decided to support two charities:

1. Save the Children

2. RSPCA – Royal Society for the Protection of Animals 

The two things we want to focus on in the school this year are:

1. I-Pads for pupils to use

2. More cooking activities

Last year we raised £5,000 which went to supoprt our choosen charities - Wateraid and Cancer Research.

Our focus for last year were:- Even more enrichment and trips and Class pets.  We has an exciting year where we visited places like Putney Cinema, Imperial war Museum, British Museum, Chelsea Physic Gardens, Churches, Natural history Museum, Wigmore Hall Music performance, Hampton Court, Science Museum, Festival Hall, London Philharmonic Orchestra. We had special enrichment visitors, activities and experiences to our school eg: The Creepy Critters man, book authors, parents from over 42 cultures to teach us language, foods, dance and Bollywood Dancers, including the head teacher of our link school in New Delhi, India.

Last year we introduced stuffed class pets to each class. We had a range of animals and got to take them home each weekend. We would then take photos of them going places with us  and write about their weekends in a special book. We had live chicks in the school and all got a chance to watch them hatch and grow, and this year Puffins class got a pet Guinea pig.

Our Lunchtime Ideas

OUR ACTIVITIES

  • We collated a proposal for a business idea that we had for lunchtimes and decided to set up a lemonade stand. It was so popular! We made a lot of money which we will put into our next business venture, so we can raise even more for our charities.

We wrote a proposal to run Dodgeball at lunchtimes. We put ‘sign up’ sheets all around the school. We had so many people sign up. We organised the game and brought some prizes. We enjoyed it so much but it is hard work organising children!! We like that there are so many new games and activities every week, organised by children for children (but all the adults like to play them too)!!   In Mondays' assembly we tell  everyone what we are doing, what the rules are and where to find us...
