This half term JLT and Ambassadors will be supporting the organisation of our 'International Food Festival'...watch this space !
Ambassadors and JLT have been busy !
From Octobers actions all JLT members have consulted classes about school dinners. Keira and Taylor have met with the school cook to discuss these and our ideas . We already have a Chinese New Year theme meal planned for 2020.
JLT delivered an assembly to the rest of the pupils today. We introduced ourselves and explained what we wanted to achieve whilst we are JLT. We then gave the children information about the Aldi kits for school competition. We need to collect as many stickers as possible to be in with a chance of winning £20000 for HWP! We then explained what a food bank is and their purpose, as a food bank project is something we would be interested in implementing this term.
We decided to host a film and pizza night to raise money. We watched "Hop" and lots of children attended the event. We raised over £220.
"At Primary Parliament we talked about how were going to improve our garden and have good flowers and vegetables. In the drawing you can see recycle bins to keep our garden clean. We could also plant flowers and have equipment in the gardens. We could plant some vegetables for the food bank. And we could get a shed in the garden so it is easier to get the equipment out. On the left, is the pond. We could add some fish to the pond. We could have vegetables for our school. And we could plant more flowers for Mother's and Father's day. We could also plant some fruit. We have also though about the risks and how to minimise these."
Four members of JLT have represented our school at the Spring session of Primary Parliament today. We discussed 'good food gardens', and what this might look like at our school. We designed a garden and presented our ideas to the rest of Primary Parliament and a Councillor and the Director for Education. We also discussed the New Central Library that is going to be built in Nottingham. We suggested things that we would like to see in a library and which of these would be most important.
Y6 JLT have attended Primary Parliament at the Council House. JLT have discussed jobs in future, and how the opportunities available now may change in the future. JLT have also discussed the air quality in Nottingham. The children went into the market square to examine the factors that contribute towards air quality in our city. JLT discussed and compared the factors affecting the air quality around our school and others in the city. We hope to use an air quality kit to monitor the air in different areas of the playground.
JLT organised a cake sale for children in need. With a great amount of cakes donated, JLT managed to raise a fantastic amount of money for the charity. Thank you for all your cake donations and contributions.
Congratulations to our Junior Leaders, who received the Emotional Health and Wellbeing Charter certificate: recognising Henry Whipple's commitment to a positive and healthy learning lifestyle. We are the first school to be awarded this accolade - well done everyone!
