On Friday 2nd February a MAT Council Meeting was held at Manadon. Mrs Chidgey, Laura, Tia, Daniel and Will welcomed 24 children and staff from other schools.
We started with a Yoga session to help us relax and get to know one another.
Next we gathered in mixed school groups to create 'The things you should have the chance to do before reaching 11 3/4 (by the end of Primary School)'
It was a very successful afternoon as the list below demonstrates!
This year we have a larger School Parliament at Manadon Vale Primary School. We have representatives from across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. You will see most of members in the picture below (a few were absent for the photo so we will produce a further update after half term).
We have started the year by thinking about the Outdoor Learning environment, considering the things we would like to add to what we already have/ do at Manadon. The children have shared their ideas with the Friends association and they will be seeking further ideas from the larger school community. We do hope the Pirate Ship or Tree House become a reality!
We are pleased to welcome School Parliament members from across the MAT on Friday 2nd February. These children will be bringing ideas about the experiences that they believe every child has a right to enjoy while at Primary School. This is based upon the National Trust's promotion of enjoying the great outdoors and doing a set numbers of things before the age of 11 3/4.
As a school we have held two meetings to finalise the suggestions we have and have 4 representatives to share these ideas with the rest of the schools taking part.
