School Council Elections
There is a real buzz around school as the children consider whether they would like to put themselves forward for this year's School Council.  The canvassing will start in earnest next week, when candidates are invited to put up posters from Monday if they wish.  On Thursday morning, they will have the opportunity to speak to the school community about why they feel they would make a good school councillor.  Each candidate will be allocated 5 minutes.  The elections will then take place on Friday during PSHE lessons.  Just a reminder that representatives from Y2-Y6 will be elected, with all children invited to cast their vote.
Coming Up...

Online Gaming - Roblox
Online gaming can be great fun for our children and we teach widely in school about how to be safe when playing online. A game we know many of our children (across the school) enjoy is Roblox. This site can be suitable for wide age-range but needs to be managed carefully with support from adults at home. Please see the following website for  specific information and advice to support you at home:
