The School Councillors led an assembly to kick off Fairtrade week. They talked about what Fairtrade is and why we should choose Fairtrade products. It was interesting to learn that lots of the products that we already buy are Fairtrade! We also enjoyed finding out about where lots of our everyday products come from. Throughout the week each class will participate in lessons and activities linked to Fairtrade.
British Values 11.2.19
The School Council led an assembly on British Values. We talked about what we each value and then linked this to British Values and discussed what each of these are.
Ahead of Internet Safety day on the 5th of February, the School Councillors led an assembly on how to stay safe online. We also linked in some information on gaming safely. Since this week is also Mental Health Awareness week, we reminded everyone of how to look after their mental health which tied in well with our e-safety and gaming messages.
