About Committees by the Committees

All children in KS2 are part of a committee. They change their roles each year.

As Eco-warriors we try to help the environment. For example we have recently picked up litter in the community and we have put up bird feeders. We have learned about making fire and tools out of natural things.

The Charity Committee raise money for local and national charities. This term we’re raising money for Nkokoto by selling cakes and bric a brac. This year we also organised Red Nose Day and events for Comic Relief, Children in Need, Save the Children and the Salvation Army.

As the Links Committee we learn about different countries. We’re planning a World Appreciation Afternoon where we will all learn about different cultures. We have a display showing everyone’s links with places around the world.

Playleaders we help younger children play and learn new skills. We create our own games in groups and work together to entertain the children.

Our Community Group aim to do whatever we can to help the local community. For example we recently went to the library to help them organise their books. Last year we visited a local residential home to talk to people and read to them.

The Librarians write book reviews to recommend books to other children. We are also trained in how to help children find a book in the library. We sometimes do assemblies, for example on World Book Day, to help everyone see how great books are. We run treasure hunts. We really enjoy it.

As News Reporters we write for local publications like the school newsletter and Tom Long’s Post.  We conduct interviews and write articles. At the moment we are promoting the publication of our first school book.

The Worship Committee run their own assemblies for the rest of the school. We plan it ourselves and then the whole team delivers it. We also ask difficult questions afterwards.
