School Councillors 2011/2012
School Council has twelve new members as each class has elected a representative. We feel very proud that the children in our class have voted for us so we want to work really hard to make our school the best. We meet with Mrs. Tattam on a regular basis to suggest ways to do this. On Friday in assembly we report back on what we have been doing and give out tidy cloakroom certificates. We also award Golden Certificates which celebrate how pupils have helped in school.
Have you earned a Golden Award yet?

What a fabulous year to be on the School Council! As you know we wrote to Mr. Cameron and sent a film inviting him to visit us at the Blake. Well today he came! We were very excited when Mrs. Tattam told us this morning. When Mr. Cameron arrived we met him in the library and showed him our Diamond Jubilee display. Just in case he was able to come we had asked our classes for questions they wanted answering. His people thought they were very good questions. We wrote Mr. Cameron's answers in our reporter notebooks - he was very honest and answered in great detail. He told us we were the Parliament of Blake School. When we had finished quizzing the Prime Minister we really enjoyed our cup cakes and squash. Interviewing the Prime Minister is hard work!

Our School Council visit to Christ the Sower has been changed to Friday 4th May. Thank you to Miss. Knowles, one of our school governors who has made a very generous donation towards the cost of the coach. This is very kind of her and we are very grateful. We are all looking forward to seeing our School Council 'buddies' again soon. The Friends of Blake School have also kindly agreed to pay for two more picnic tables in the outdoor classroom area which Mrs. Tattam will be ordering over the Easter holidays. This will allow more of us to sit there during the warm weather and use the activities. A big thank you to Miss. Knowles and to Friends.

We were delighted that Natasha from David Cameron's constituency office came into school today. She answered our questions and we now know a lot more about him. She also collected our beautifully wrapped box which will now have been delivered to him in London. The box contains our letters inviting him into school, a copy of the film we made especially for him and a box designed by William so that Mr. Cameron can collect small change for the Queen's favourite charity too. We know he is not free to visit us on our Jubilee Celebration day but hope he will be able to find another time to pop in. Here's hoping!

We all had a great day today when the School Council from Christ the Sower came to visit. Jade's mum came in to serve juice and biscuits and then we showed them around our school. Playtime with our School Council 'buddies' was brilliant. They all brought a packed lunch and sat with us in the hall. As they have two members for each class we had twenty four visitors. We also had two extra vistors as Ms. Knowles and Mrs. Kominek from our Governors joined us. We were very pleased they could come and really delighted with the lovely card they sent us afterwards. We are all looking forward to our visit to Christ the Sower on Friday 27th April.
As always the School Council have been very busy. Yesterday we had a ‘working’ lunch when we drafted a letter to the Queen and David Cameron telling them about all the exciting events we have planned for the Diamond Jubilee.
We also looked at the website of Christ the Sower Primary School in Milton Keynes. Their School Council (all 24 of them) will be visiting us on 24th February. We are looking forward to showing them around our school
We have been looking at ways to improve our playtimes as there are rather a lot of us at playtime. Since last September we now have separate morning playtimes for KS1 and KS2, except on Friday when we all have morning play together after sharing Assembly. We love being in the sensory garden at playtimes and really like all the interesting activities that Mrs. Langley plans for us. When we asked everyone how we could improve playtimes they said they wanted more places to sit so we have asked Friends to give some money for more tables in the quiet area and YIPPEE they said yes. Mrs. Tattam ordered three more tables during the Easter holidays so watch out for them coming. At lunchtime Ms. Williams will be putting out lots of exciting things to do in that area or maybe you just want to come and sit quietly with your friends, drawing or reading a book. Please play somewhere else if you do not want to do quiet activities. Our next job is painting the friendship bench so we will be asking for your designs soon! We are also planning an environment day with Eco Council - a day when we are all outside doing our bit to make our grounds look even more fabulous.
