Wenlock's School Council has had a busy term. Well done to all the pupils who were elected to represent their class - pictures of the Councillors are below.
Children in Need 2017
Our school councillors were very busy during the Children in Need week (13.11.17-17.11.17). We arranged three different activities for children across the school to take part in. School councillors ran these activities during break and lunch time. The activities ranged from guess how many jelly beans were in the jar, guess the name of the bear and there was a rubber duck race sweepstake which took place live on the BBC. The money raised from children taking part in these activities went towards Children in Need. The week ended with a non-school uniform day on the Friday (17.11.17). Pupils were encouraged to come dressed in PJ's, bright colours or spotty clothing with a donation of £1 towards Children in Need. During our assembly on Friday (17.11.17) we awarded the prize winners their prizes. Overall Children in Need week was a really enjoyable week and the school councillors really enjoyed running the activities and were pleased with the generosity shown by pupils across the school.
Sports Relief 2018
On Friday the 23rd of March, we all came together to get active, raise money and help change lives in the UK and abroad. We were allowed to come dressed as our favourite sportsman/sportswoman, favourite team or in our PE kits for a donation of £1.
At lunch, we had the opportunity to take part in sport games such as: basketball throwing, skipping, shooting a football at a target, hockey dribbling and throwing a bean bag at targets. Pupils were allowed to take part in these activities for a donation of their choice. From each activity, two winners were selected for lower and upper key stage 2. During our achievement celebration assembly, we celebrated their success and the fun we had during Sports Relief.
This day would not have been possible if it were not for the help from school councillors, other pupils who helped out, teaching staff and pupils who gave so generously. On the day we raised £287.31! Well done to the children and staff of Wenlock Junior.
