BOOK WEEK 2016

The children and teachers have spent a wonderful week enjoying the fun filled activities for Book WeekIMG_0329 2016. The members of staff involved with the English PLC, have been busy for weeks planning and organising Book Week. It has been extremely successful -all the classes are inspired to read.

We began the week with a ‘Teachers Swap’, where classes were met by a different teacher who read them an exciting story or chapter of a book chosen by the class.

Tuesday was ‘Book Swap Day’! Children were encouraged to bring in a book from home that they had already read and to swap it for another book brought in by someone in their class. It was lovely to see so many books brought in.

Wednesday was the day of the Golden Ticket. Each class waited excitedly for their library session, where an array of new, interesting and engaging books were laid out for each class to sit, on bean bags and comfy chairs, and enjoy the stories. One child from each class was lucky enough to find a Golden Ticket hidden inside one book – to be entered into the Friday draw to win a prize.

Thursday, both Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2 took part in a Book Quiz, organised by Mrs Jackson and we were also lucky enough to have a visit from the library service to promote Wrexham Library and what it has to offer.
Finally, on Friday all the children and staff dressed up as book characters. Everyone looked sensational in their outfits. We also enjoyed the ‘Take to the Stage’ competition, where children recited and acted out scenes from their favourite books.

Here are the winners of the golden ticket prizes, best dressed and recital competition.

Happy reading everyone!

Take a look at the PowerPoint that the School Council delivered to our school governors in their recent Spring term meeting.

school council ppt to governors

 We were invited to visit the Mayor’s Parlour to meet the current Mayor Cllr Barbara Roxburgh. We discussed the history of Wrexham and had a mock meeting in the council chambers.

Dylan from year 5 said, ” I learnt that the Mayor’s Chain of Office was real gold and that she was the first female Mayor for about 11 or 12 years.”

Lily from year 6 said, ” I enjoyed visiting the Mayor’s Parlour, but I enjoyed having the pretend meeting the most.”

Rhian from year 5 said, “I learnt that the role of the Mayor is only given to you for a year. There was lots of things from the history of Wrexham all around the room, so we got to learn lots about Wrexham too.”

David’s Day Parade

On Tuesday 1st March, School Council was lucky enough to be invited to the annual St David’s Day parade in Wrexham town centre. Lots of fun was to be had as the children walked through the town with their St David’s Day banner, finishing in Victoria Square to sing the Welsh National Anthem.

Link Governor Visit

Thankyou to Councillor David Bithell, who came to visit us on Wednesday 27th January, to listen to School Council present a PowerPoint of their achievements this year and their goals for the up and coming terms. School council have  mind mapped  ideas to help raise the profile of reading in school this half term, and  are looking forward to the St David’s Day parade in Wrexham town centre and a visit to the Mayor’s Parlour!

Children in Need

Our superheros looked fabulous on Friday 13th in aid of Children in Need. Thank you so much to all who donated and dressed up; it was lots of fun.We managed to raise an amazing £360 for the charity. Please take a look at our superheros in the gallery below.

Kindness Day

Kindness Day UK is celebrated nationwide, annually, on Novemeber 13th. It is a day to celebrate and promote kindness in all its forms. At Wat’s Dyke each class wrote kind words about each other and filled the ‘kindness bucket’. As a school, we also raised money for Children in Need by dressing up as a superhero, another act of kindness.

Make a Noise about bullying

Anti-bullying week was held from the 16th -20th November. The aims of the week were to encourage children to ‘make a noise’ about bullying and provide a safe enviornment for children to talk about their thoughts and feelings.

 

Please view below School Council’s busy year 2014-2015

It has been a very busy start to our Autumn term, we began with every class member who wanted to be considered for a role on the school council writing a manifesto to explain why they would be the best person for the job. Every class listened carefully to their classmates and then a secret ballot was carried out and our successful pupils were voted into their roles as school council representatives.  Key stage 2 representatives are as follows:

Year 6~ Oliver Evans & Grace Williams

Year 5/6 ~ Megan Clarke & Joe Tomlinson

Year 5 ~ Tallulah Egerton & Hannah G Jones

Year 4 ~ Ruby Boden & Faris Al-Assaf

Year 3/4 ~ Mitchell Clare & Charlie Chowdhury

Year 3 ~ Millie Holland & Jake Barlow

One of our first meetings was spent discussing what we feel makes a good councillor and the pupils suggested many positive qualities, some examples were ability to be a good listener, someone who cares, someone who has new ideas and someone who is confident to speak out infront of a group.

We then discussed the different roles and responsibilites that the school councillors will now have during meetings and after a lot of discussion and a secret ballot the roles are as follows:

Chairperson ~ Tallulah Egerton

Vice-Chairperson ~ Hannah G Jones

Secretary ~ Mitchell Clare

Treasurer ~ Oliver Evans

Media People ~ Jake Barlow, Ruby Boden, Grace Williams and Megan Clarke

The remaining members of the KS2 council Millie Holland, Charlie Chowdhury, Faris Al-Assaf and Joe Tomlinson are happy to support the executive commitee in their roles.

Upper and Lower Foundation Phase have also voted their school council representatives and the successful candidates representing their classes are as follows:

Year 2 ~ Cecile Ffoulkes & Bella Delaney Davies

Year 1/2 ~ Daniel Jones & Ella Henshaw

Year 1 ~ Jacob Chesworth & Grace Mackreth

Reception ~ Sophie Bell, Maisie Henshaw, Chloe Watkins & Lucas Morris.

A huge congratulations to all of the children who have been voted for and our first event has already been an enormous success, which you can read more about  below!We look forward to many more meetings, discussions and decisions during the school year.

 The Mayor’s Parlour

 The Wat’s Dyke school councillor’s had the amazing opportunity to visit the Mayor’s Parlour on Tuesday 24th February 2015. The Mayor kindly invited all the school council representitives to ask questions about his role as the Mayor and to get an insight as to what the job might entail. Tallulah, the chairperon of the school council said, ‘ Being the Mayor would be a fun job. I thought they would have to sit at a desk all day, but the Mayor gets to visit lots of places and meet new people.’
