Our Visit to Castle Hill Infants

We had a successful visit to Castle Hill Infants yesterday and enjoyed doing learning walks to find out about RRR in action!  On the playground we looked for pupils and adults using respectful language, children taking responsibility for tidying up after themselves and how children came in at the end of lunchtime. Back in school we looked for signs of RRR on displays as we walked around. We are looking forward to them visiting us next Wednesday 4th December, when they will find out about RRR at Fairfields!

Visit to Castle Hill Infants

Some members of School Council are going to visit Castle Hill Infants next Monday. They are going to meet their School Council and have lunch with them. Then they are going to do a learning walk around the school to find out all about the school’s work on rights and responsibilities. We will blog again soon to let you know all about the visit!

Class Charter Competition

Every year each class make a class charter of what rights and responsibilities they agreed to follow.

They first choose the rights and responsibilities they want to put on it . Next they choose the theme and how they are going to show the rights and responsibilities. Afterwards they get creating the charter.

The classes themes were :

FS: Super heroes

1C: Sunflowers in a garden 1M: Knights and princess

2H: racing cars 2JD: Super Mario

3F: Starwars 3M: Disney Infinity

4T: Pirates 4R: Smurfs

5S: Minecraft 5W: Haribo gummy bears

6P: Football 6W: Football

Finally there was a competition to see which class  had the best charter out of the whole school. School council did a learning walk to see whether they had; clear rights, bold colours, that it was designed by the children and that they had all signed/made an agreement.

The winners this year were: 6W,4T, 2JD and 1M. Well done!

What’s School Council all about?

Mrs Tucker and Miss Jenkins put together a team called School Council, which is a group of representatives from every year group. There are two children from each class, and Mrs Tucker runs the Green Team while Miss Jenkins runs the group of RRR Ambassadors.

What do school council do? 

School council meet every Monday morning; Green Team meet in the library and the RRR Ambassadors meet in the ICT suite. They talk about how they could make the school an even better place. RRR Ambassadors work on different projects involving rights, e.g. last year they developed a video for the RRR digital media award, which showed how we respect each other’s rights at Fairfields. Green Team work on a range of ‘green issues’ e.g. recycling and healthy eating. Every Wednesday morning each representative shares what they discussed in their previous meeting with their class. The classes are fully involved in any decisions School Council makes.

What is the plan for 2013 – 2014?

The team are looking forward to developing a link with the School Council at Castle Hill Infant School this year. They are also looking forward to supporting S.t Michael’s Hospice on their Mad Hair Day! Visit the School Council blog to see what School Council is up to.
