We held a virtual school council meeting in school where we were joined by our new year 2 members and we discussed supporting the save the children charity by participating in Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 11th December. We thought of how we could facilitate contact free contribution collections and came up with ideas for in class competitions. One of the year 6 members then spoke to Miss Nicholas regarding prizes and costed these.
The year 6 members helped to draft a letter for parents and all classes from year 2 to 6 shared the information with their class.

During lockdown we held a virtual school council meeting where we were asked for feedback on home learning. They and parents (as some parents stayed for the whole of the meeting) gave feedback on home learning e.g. what did they think of the amount and range of activities shared, what helped them the most and how we could support them going forward with blended learning.
Those children who attended the meeting shared that they particularly liked seeing and hearing their teachers voices on the welcome to the week videos and going forward more video tutorials by teachers would be helpful, which we have subsequently tried to do when a year group has had to isolate. School council members were also asked if they would be happy to stay on school council for the next year.
