Welcome to :
Rhino Class: Tommy and Skylar

This term the school council will be asking the children in their classes if they enjoyed sharing their Happiness boxes with each other and what other ideas they want the School Council to investigate to keep them happy in their learning and relationships. We will be sharing the information we gather in a School Council meeting next term!
The school Councillors reported back that the classes had enjoyed sharing their Happiness Boxes with their class mates and they really enjoyed seeing what their teachers and TAs had put in their
The School Council discussed whether, Covid restrictions allowing, we could have a Christmas Pantomime, Christmas parties, a visit from Santa and the FOBs Present Room.
We investigated these requests and arranged for the children to enjoy an online Pantomime.
We held Christmas parties in the class bubbles and the Santa visited at the door of each bubble!
FOBs safely organised the Present Room - 'Elfridges'- with chosen gifts held in 72 hour isolation by Santa's elves before going home!
The School Council met part in-school and part on Zoom this term!
We discussed what the Home Learners may be missing as part of school life.
Our Home Learning Councillors had some good suggestions which we then put to Miss Smith to see if she could organise things!
Sophia was missing seeing her class teacher as one year group teacher teaches the in-school learners and the other teachers the home learners.
We arranged for the in-school teaching staff to 'zoom' the home learners in their class.
Skylar thought the home learners may be missing playtimes!
Miss Smith has arranged some 'Friendship' zooms so groups of home learners can have a chat with their friends.
Grace likes seeing other children's work - we thought the home learners could share work they are proud of during the Friendship zooms.
Term 4 School Council
We would like to know what ideas the classes have to make our time in Terms 5 and 6 really enjoyable.
We had a think and came up with some ideas.
Teddy suggested a painting competition.
Grace wanted to know how we would do sports day.
Joshua came up with an idea to do a ‘mile obstacle course’
Cian asked if we could do a ‘Reading Mile’ where some of the grown ups are at ‘reading stations’ round the field and children stop at each one for a story.
Alexis and Tommy wondered if children had any other ideas for clubs they would like.
Sophia and Skylar wondered if we will be able to do a school trip this year.
We have made a School Council ‘Suggestion Box’ for the School Council hall space so children can put ideas in.
The School Council decided that we would need to look in the box during week one, Term 5 and take the ideas to Miss Smith to see which ones we can organise.
