Please welcome our new Rights Respecting Council for 2017
Monday 2nd October saw the opening of our new fantastic playground extension on our school field. After many months of planning and choosing equipment (not to mention voting for the right name for the area) we were finally able to explore and try out all of the new equipment.
Lots of people turned up to help us celebrate including representatives from our parent group, Governors and our local councillor.
Our sports leaders and playground buddies acted as teachers showing children how to correctly use the equipment and the event was officially opened by the youngest (Matthew) and oldest (Molly) children in school with a special speech from our young Sports Ambassador Mackenzie. Everyone had a fab time and cant wait to use the area next playtime.
KS2 worked with Mrs Bell, who taught us about Parliament. We did workshops involving voting, debating and democracy.
