Autumn Term 2019
Pupil Parliament have been extremely busy this term. They are now fully established and have taken a lead on several projects in school. They have even had time to fit in a Cinema Trip to see The Boy who would be King! Their biggest project this term has been the 'Phab Charity' Disability Awareness Day. Pupil Parliament came up with the idea to have a Disability Awareness Day to raise money for the 'Phab Charity' who Mrs Roe runs the London Marathon for. This was a great day where children experienced what it was like to have a disability for a day. Children took part in various activities over the day; learning Makaton and taking part in activities handicapped or visually impaired. The day was a great success and the children raised over £1000 for the charity through sponsorship. Ash Tree amazing!!!
Spring Term A 2020
This half term Pupil Parliament are getting on board with our big push on Reading throughout school. Pupil Parliament successfully planned, organised and led a whole school 'Big Book Swap' event over the course of a week. This event was extremely successful and due to its popularity they have decided to open their very Big Book Swap Shop. This will be open every Monday morning 8.30-8.45 am and 3.15-3.30 pm in the pram store shelter next to the school office. We hope to see you there!
*Due to success of the Big Book Swap the children of Ash Tree have spoken and would like this to be a weekly permanent fixture at our school. Therefore Pupil Parliament will now hold a weekly Book Swap Shop every Monday 3.15-3.30pm after school in the outdoor pram store.
Spring Term B 2020
This half term Pupil Parliament have chosen to run a whole school kindness campaign. They decided to set up a kindness tree where children can write acts of kindness they see others do over the week on a leaf. Pupil Parliament will then decide on the kindest act over the week from each class and display it on the school's kindness tree for all to see. We decided to tie the acts of kindness in with our school values and have a theme each week linked to our school value of the week. We can't wait to read about all the acts of kindness at Ash Tree.
