In the summer the weather is so hot, could we have more to drink at break and lunch times.

We did….

We thought ice lollies!  The Kitchen staff were unable to make them, so as a group we bought some moulds and now we sell them every Friday after school for 50p each, this is the biggest source of income for the School Council.

We would like to have the school memorial from the old site bought up to Furrlongs, our new school site.

We did….

We asked the Parish Council if it was possible.  The memorial is outside Barton Primary School stored in a glass case for everyone to see.

The School uniform needing smartening up!

We did….

The School Council went along to The Big White TShirt and tried on all different designs of uniform.  The old school uniform was recycled to two different charities. One of the charities will be using the garments to make items for sale e.g. cat beds. The other charity is sending our clothes to Africa to be worn by the children there.

A lot of people have commented how smart we  look especially the introduction of ties and the change of colour from red to burgundy.

At Playtimes there was not enough to do and that some children were playing silly.

We did….

The very next day we unlocked the sheds and found the unused play equipment which the adults now get out at the beginning of the morning playtime.

We re-established a seating area so that children who do not want to play physical games can sit quietly and chat, read and draw.

We bought two new football goals and at playtimes a member of staff supervises a game of football.

We no longer have Playtime Buddies.

We did….

First we reintroduced the idea of Playtime Buddies to the whole school in assembly and invited pupils from Years 4-6 to apply for the post.

Later that week we short listed the children who had applied for the post and then drew up a list of candidates to be interviewed. We held a round of interviews and selected 18 children to become the new Buddies.

In the meantime we ordered a new Buddy sign and a new set of Buddy hats.

On Monday 26th January, in assembly the new Playtime Buddies were appointed. A rota has been drawn up and every day 4 Buddies are on duty. Two of whom organise and supervise playtime games.
