RLAPP2015 003

On Friday 16th October two members of our school council went to County Hall for a meeting of the Rushcliffe Learning Alliance Pupil Parliament. Children from local schools meet up as representatives to discuss various issues which may be happening in their schools. The children held the meeting in the Council Chambers and were taught how to debate and vote. It was a great experience for them, especially as they met in the actual room where our County Councillors meet.

Book Club – 7th October 2015

Every Wednesday lunchtime children from Classes 5 and 6 meet for a Book Club with Jo Wroughton and Julie Thorpe. First of all, and some might say the most important part, we have a drink and a piece of cake which the children take in turns to bake for the groups.

We then discuss the chosen book which the children have taken home to read, some children act out parts of the book and read out their reviews for the book. We discuss what aspects of the book we could use in our own writing and also to whom the book might appeal.
