Smart School Council meeting.

On Friday 18th October all of the new School Council travelled to Mawney Federation school to work together on our new Smart School Council.

We caught the bus and arrived ready for lunch and to meet our counterparts.

 All of the children spilt into mixed groups and we met Greg and Sam who introduced the new way we will be working and it was very exciting. This new format involves all children having a say and a vote to make changes to benefit the school. There are opportunities for everyone to get involved and create or take part in action groups. The 'Comms' Team learnt about their roles and what they need to do to be a great school councillor.

The children were confident and enjoyed each activity. There were lots of smiles and the children are eager to put their new roles into action.

Year 6 have been investigating a mysterious case, around their Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde topic.

'It really got us motivated to ask questions and find out what happens next.  It helps us understand what actually happens in the book.  I think we can now explain more about Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.' - Finley, 6N

'I really liked that we got to see the crime scene.It was really exciting and made me feel part of the story.  It felt real.' - Toma, 6N

You're Under Arrest!

Year 5 and 6 were visited by the local police this week to talk about some important issues.

'Police came to our school and told us lots of advice to keep us safe.  They also warned us about crimes and what would happen if you were arrested and went to jail.  They said you can be as young as 10 years old to go to be arrested and how you are firstly handcuffed and put into a police vehicle.  They take the person to the police station and call the person's parents if it is a child.  After that, they take DNA evidence and they told us about the possible punishments.
We also spoke about internet safety and stranger danger.  They told us how to be safe and showed us a video.
We loved having the two police officers in, it was a very special assembly with them.'
