Here’s a remainder of some of the exciting things the Pupil Parliament helped organise last year!
OCTOBER 2019 – This year’s Enterprise Week and Farmer’s Market will once again raise money for Sheffield Childrens’ Hospital.
UPDATE: We raised £304 for the hospital!
OCTOBER 2019 – The Pupil Parliament decided what events would take place to raise money for ‘Children in Need’. They asked children to: donate £1 to wear spots/bright clothes; bring spare change to take part in a lunchtime ‘Hook a Duck’ competition; bring homemade cakes to sell at an after school ‘Cake Sale’.
UPDATE: We raised £135.75 for Children in Need!
NOVEMBER 2019 – The Pupil Parliament decided that during Anti-Bullying week each would have a focus on ‘Friendship’. All children will also complete a friendship survey (as will parents). The Parliament will compile the results and share.
The Pupil Parliament asked the children to wear odd socks on Friday 22 November to celebrate ‘Anti Bullying’ week.
NOVEMBER 2019 – Sammy and Tilly visited Longstone Primary School to listen to Sky News journalist Nick Martin share his work on the documentary series ‘Ocean Rescue’. The ‘plastic problem’ is a focus of the Lady Manners Cluster Parliament work this year.
DECEMBER 2019 – The Pupil Parliament supported and raised the profile of our Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children on Friday 13 December 2019.
UPDATE: We raised £87.20 for the Save the Children Charity!
JANUARY 2020 – Sammy and Tilly visited Rowlsey Primary School to listen to Anne Welch (DCC Eco Worker) talk to the Cluster Parliament about recycling. This was useful before Curbar’s Y4, 5 and 6 children visited the Veolia Recycling Centre in Mansfield.
FEBRUARY 2020 – The Pupil Parliament agreed that the theme for this year’s World Book Day would be ‘book to film’. Children came to school dressed as a book character who has also appeared in film! We also ask that children bring in a favourite book to read. When the school bell rang at anytime during the day, the children will DEAR (Drop Everything And Read). Children also received a World Book Day voucher.
FEBRUARY 2020 – Class 3 spent a wonderful day in London visiting the Houses of Parliament and the Foreign Commonwealth Office. We were joined by the Pupil Parliamentarians in Years 3 and 4 as well.
MARCH 2020 – We celebrated Sport Relief by dressing in sporty clothing/red, taking part in active playtimes and buying raffle tickets and red noses on Friday 13 March. We raised £123!
