Nation of Animal Lovers!

On Monday, School Council held a meeting to share the work classes across school had taken part in to explore the overarching question, ‘Is Britain a nation of animal lovers?’ School Council were very impressed with the work that classes had produced and felt their reflections were very thoughtful. Now, they will be sharing this work with the whole school in an assembly later this week.

Are we a nation of animal lovers?

During an assembly, everybody has been discussing if we are a nation of animals lovers. We have been exploring the laws linked to animal cruelty and how up until recently, there were no laws in place to protect service dogs and horses. We learnt about Finn’s law and agreed that tougher laws like these need to be made to protect vulnerable animals from cruelty and harm.

Who helps me in school?

This week, School Council interviewed Mrs Whitfield to find out more about her role as the MDSA whose main responsibility it is to take care of the dining hall at lunchtime. The children learnt lots more about her role and how it is so important to be organised to ensure that everyone gets the correct dinner on time! School Council would like to say a big thank you to Mrs Whitfield for taking the time to come and speak to everybody.

Fabulous fundraising…

This week, everyone has taken part in fundraising for the charity ‘Born Free’ so that animals around the world can continue to live safely in their natural habitats. I was really impressed by how many pieces of rubbish were donated to reuse in a creative way! The outfits that were produced were fabulous! We managed to raise £210.

Thank you to everybody who took part!

How plastics harm wildlife!

This week, School Council have held an assembly to share the different items they collected during their trip around school. During this assembly, we discussed how plastics can also harm wildlife that live in the ocean. This is especially true for sea turtles. Because we cannot go and visit them in the ocean to collect plastic from their habitat, we have decided we would like to fundraise for a charity who supports this. ‘Born Free’ are a foundation who care for many animals around the world and they support ‘Sea Sense Marine Conservation’ located just off of the coast of Tanzania. School Council will be sending a letter home next week with more information about our fundraising day. We hope you will all get involved!

Cleaning up our school grounds…

As part of our termly project to raise awareness of the dangers of plastics in our environment, School Council have been litter picking around school to try and clean up the school grounds to make it a safe place for wildlife to live. We found more litter than what we expected especially around the wilderness area. The most popular type of rubbish we found were made from the materials plastic, metal and glass. Keal commented, ‘There are around 180 children in our school and if everyone just picked up one piece of plastic it might not seem like much but it would make such a big difference to our school environment.
