Pupil Council

Indoor Break Bags

Members of the Pupil Council display the activity bags that have recently been bought with the money they raised at the Christmas Shop.  These bags will only be available during the breaks we need to have indoor when the weather is bad.  These bags are all different and activities are suitable for each year group.  There are colouring books, origami books, different types of playing cards and a variety of problems to solve.


Playground Awards

A massive well done to our handful of playground award winners before the spring holidays!!

Sports Relief Daley Challenge

This week Primary 6/7 have enjoyed taking part in a ‘Daley’ Challenge as part of Sports Relief. Each day were able to enjoy a different sport:

  • Monday – Hula hooping
  • Tuesday – Skipping
  • Wednesday – Relay races
  • Thursday – Dancing
  • Friday- Football

We also managed to join up with both Primary 6 and Primary 7 for some of the challenges, making it even more exciting.

On Friday, alongside football, we also enjoyed taking part in BBC Super Movers Campaign, where we watched some physical activities videos and then joined in.

We had a great week supporting Sports Relief! Thank you to Mrs Nicholson and the Pupil Council for all their hard work organising the week!


P5 World Book Day

On Thursday 1st March P5 celebrated World Book Day by partaking in a variety of different literacy based activities.


A – Z of book characters, authors or titles


Groups had to think about characters, authors or book titles beginning with every letter in the alphabet. 3 points were awarded for authors, 2 for book titles and 1 for characters.


Big Book Bonanza Quiz


In groups we took part in a very difficult book related quiz.


My Character Profile


Using either a someone from a book or our imagination, we wrote a character description.


World Book Day Wordsearch


We searched carefully for a variety of book related words.


Book Token Design Competition

We had the opportunity to enter a national competition where some designs will be used on book tokens throughout the UK.


Book Swap

We had the opportunity to bring in and swap books that we no longer wanted.  This was a great way of seeing the huge variety of authors and genre available, allowing us all to continue to enjoy reading.

  • I enjoyed World Book Day because it was fun learning about different books and doing a quiz.
  • I enjoyed swapping books and doing lots of different activities to do with books I had read.
  • I really enjoyed World Book Day because I loved the book swap and I got another great story book to read instead.
  • It was great fun to make up a new character of our own!
  • I think it is a great way to encourage people to read and to help people enjoy books.

Celebrating success

Here is some evidence of the fantastic work our Pupil council (and Mrs Nicholson) has achieved this year so far.
