What did we talk about?
What did we decide in our school council meeting?
1. Mrs Maiden from ‘Shadwell in Bloom’ was invited to attend our meeting
Mrs Maiden explained that ‘Shadwell in Bloom’ works with volunteers. They try to make
the village look as nice as it can by growing plants in flower beds around the village. Mrs
Maiden would like to work with children in school to make some of our areas bright and
colourful.
Mrs Maiden suggested starting a gardening club; she would like to work with the Year 5
children first and later children from different year groups. This would start on Wednesday
lunch times after half term in February. The children would have their lunch then meet with
Mrs Maiden at 12.30pm Mrs Kennett has said she would like to join the gardeners as well.
This means 8 children could be in the first group.
Year 5 volunteers:
Only volunteer if you are committed to a minimum of three weeks gardening activities.
2. What is happening in school?
Yuppie is coming back to see us as a ‘working guide dog’
Yuppie is now a working dog and lives with his owner Helen. She has asked if we would like
to hear about the difference Yuppie has made to her life.
As a School Council we voted to decide if this was a good idea.
Everyone voted ‘Yes’
Mrs Wilson will arrange for Yuppie to come into school on the 8th February.

Ethos statements for our school
We like to think of our school as one big happy family. We look after the younger children and help
them to enjoy school as well as learn, we always encourage people to look after themselves through
healthy choices, e-safety days and anti-bullying week.
We would like to have an ethos statement for each week but we would like the ethos statements to
be written by the children.
Eg.
When you smile someone will
smile back
I never give up even
when it gets tough
I treat others in the way
I like to be treated
If you haven’t got anything nice to say
then don’t say anything at all
Write your ethos statement on a post it note and give it to your school
councillors.
Remember to:
Read out these minutes to
your classmates so they know
what is going on in school
and how together we are
helping to make it a better
place.
Colour or tick each smiley
face to show you have shared
each point with your class.
Bring your folder to each
meeting.
Together we make a brilliant school
Thank you,
Mrs Wilson
