The Children's Council lead their first Pupil Forum this term looking at resilience and how to overcome obstacles in learning. Well done to those children who led the sessions for their groups and also the supporting children who asked lots of questions to get the younger members of the groups voicing their opinions. 

Keep your eyes out for the results in the coming weeks...

Congratulations to the Children's Council who received their badges in assembly last week. Wonderful to see so many enthusiastic children wanting to help others.

A message from Mrs Woolfe (Class 5:2)

 

Thank you to the Year 6 team and class reps. It was lovely to hear the children question my class then give them appropriate answers linking to the theme of anti-bullying. 

The Year 6 Children's Council started off the anti-bullying week with some short scenarios on the stage. They were given a topic and then spent their playtime on Friday preparing for the first assembly of the week. It was wonderful to see how creative they were with the ideas and how they promoted good friendship and an anti-bullying message throughout. Well done children. 

A group of Children's Council members presented information about Cancer Research and Macmillan coffee morning during our whole school assembly

Several children came forward this week to make their pledge as to why their chosen charity should be supported later on in the year. The children had clearly done their homework and were very professional in the answers that they gave back to the children. 
Well done to all the children who spoke at the council meeting about their charity, you did so with enthusiam and a great understanding of how we could support them. 

We just need to wait for the results to be counted...

The first meeting of the year.

The new Children's Council held their first meeting on Friday to discuss their roles and responsibilities. There was some discussion about possible charities that they might choose to support this year, but ultimately the children asked questions and were informed of the different jobs that they will hold around the school. 

 

Mrs Massey was extremely impressed with the enthusiasm of the children and how keen they were to start implementing their voice and opinions around the school. 

Some Children's Council Reps were able to pay a visit to the local RSPCA centre today looking at where the money that they had raised this year had been spent. It was a wonderful afternoon, not because we got to see all the  animals, but because the children learnt about how animals were rehomed and how support is needed all year round to help care for them.

There were some aaahhhhsss and some oooohhhs and as you can see from the pictures the children thoroughly enjoyed their visit. Unfortunately we weren't able to bring any animals back to school with us but there could be a possibility in the future.
Well done Year 6, a worthy charity to support.

Thank you to all the children and parents who supported the ' Colours of the Indian Flag' event. Look at the PDF below to see how we were.

INDIAN DAY

The Children's Council have requested a dress up colour theme day on 9th October with a donation of 50p if your child chooses to participate.

They are looking to raise money to support a child's education in India and have decided a colour of India day would raise awareness as to what the fund raising event is for.

They would like each year group to wear a particular colour so that they can arrange all the children for a photograph on the school playground in the colours of the Indian flag.

 Reception to wear navy/blue.

 Year 1 and Year 2 to wear green clothing.

 Year 3 and Year 4 to wear white clothing.

 Year 5 and Year 6 to wear Orange clothing.

If your child doesn’t want to participate in this, then they will need to wear school uniform please.

YEAR 6 CHILDREN’S COUNCIL 2015-2016

The Children's Council had their first meeting last week to discuss many of their responsibilities around the school. The secretaries have been round the playground to ask the Council members for some of their thoughts.

- Children's Council is all about taking part and coming up with brilliant ideas to make our school (Howe Dell) a better place. Every Year 6 pupil takes responsibility for Howe Dell events including the jobs they do every day.

- Children's Council is a fun place to be, but only when you are on your best behaviour. Emma - Children's Council isn't only about making things fun. It is also trying to prepare us for bigger responsibilities in Year 7 and higher. Joshua

- Children's Council is really fun because it brings Year 6 together. Andrew

- This is going to be so much fun. Children's Council will make Howe Dell a better place. Oliver

Our Children's Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
