Book Swap

We have a new book case in the school office which is for you to come and take a look, if you see a book you like you may take it and all we ask is that you replace it with a book of your own that you have already read for someone else to enjoy.

 

Pupil Voice

Pupils in La Classe Marron (Class 7) received Restart a Heart training.  They were asked ‘what did you think of your Restart a Heart training?’ and this is what they said…

Macey said ‘It was fun but a bit embarrassing when you had to talk to the dummy.  It was very useful training.  The names of the dummies are Agnus, Seagull, Postman Pat and Charlie.  I worked on Postman Pat.’

David said ‘It was fun, exciting and I will find it very useful for the future.’

Three pupils from our school attend the Foodbank warehouse.  They were asked ‘what did you think about your trip to the Foodbank warehouse’ and this is what they said…..

Anthony said ‘It was cool, awesome in fact.  It surprised me that there was only 2 rooms, I expected it to be bigger.’

Naomi said ‘I felt lucky to be chosen because only 3 pupils went from the whole school.  It was very organised but it is quite hidden.  There is lots of different foods, there are breakfast, lunch, dinner and pudding foods.’

Thalia said ‘The trip was fun.  I thought it was very well organised but small.  The room with the food that comes in and out was full but the room with food that doesn’t go out of date until 2020 was pretty empty.’
