School Council 2020-2021

Autumn Term

This term our our school council have had chats with their classes and found that some children were feeling lonely at play times. As a team, they decided that they would like to find ways to help children that feel lonely at play time.

The school counsellors discussed ways that we can help children that feel lonely during lunch time and they received lots of brilliant ideas from the children in Year 1 and Year 2.

Our favourite idea was to create buddy benches in the outside areas! We have decided that at lunch time, each class in Year 1 and 2 will have two buddies. At lunch time, the buddies will wear a special jacket and spend time playing fun games by the buddy benches. 

Each class has brainstormed a list of games that the buddies could play outside and our Year 2 school councillors helped type them up on the laptops. We found buddy benches in Year 1 and 2 outside areas and have plans to paint these once the weather improves!
