Events so far

Autumn Term 2017/2018

We have had a busy Autumn term. So far we have been a part of Road Safety activities with the local councillors, we have organised and successfully carried out a Macmillan Coffee morning, where all proceedings were donated to the charity. We have also helped to support Children in Need by designing posters for Non-uniform day. We have also run Christmas Jumper Day, for this event we designed posters and ensured the whole school knew to wear a Christmas jumper on the 15th December to raise money for Save the Children Charity.

We have been very busy. Miss Ferran, Mrs Wooldridge and Mr Hardy even took us to the cinema in December, for all the hard work we have done so far.

In November we went to visit Birmingham City Council House, where we were part of a debate and had a tour of the whole building. We met local councillors and were able to share the things we thought were positive and negative about our area, Frankley. We were joined by PTA volunteers, who helped to make the day run smoothly – so thanks for coming!

Spring Term 2017

We have been extremely busy this Spring term, and so far we have been successful in setting up our school recycling system, raising money for Comic Relief, and making plans to fund raise for our school. As a continuation of our support to recycle, we have arranged a local area littler pick, with Birmingham City Council. We are hoping to have all school councillors and eco-warriors participate in this event!

As a school we managed to raise £318.00 for Comic Relief. We organised the event to be a non-uniform day, wearing red if possible. We also arranged a cake sale, a running race competition and design a red nose competition. Winners are to be announced.

Here is a photograph of 4F on Red Nose Day!

Bench Project 2017

I am so proud of our Reaside school councillors this year, as they have been so successful and organised with their events and activities. School council have successfully raised money for charities, supported their local area with voluntary litter picking, and created an outstanding bench for our playground.

School council have cleaned, sanded, painted, signed, and varnished the bench, before putting it in the playground. A special thank you to Mr Hardy and Mr Downing for all their help and hard work too! Well done school council.

PTA involvement

We work closely with the PTA, in order to support their events, and liaise with the children in our classes where possible. This term we helped to make decisions about the Halloween disco, and we also helped to distribute information for them regarding costumes, prices and activities on the day. We are looking forward to the Christmas fayre to celebrate the end a fantastic first term!

Up and coming events/ dates

Reaside Local Area Litter Pick – Wednesday 26th April

Spring Term Aims

In the summer term, school councillors are hoping to raise money to support the students at our school. We want to make our school life the best it can be! We have set up a Pupil Voice Box on our notice board, where you can share your ideas on how to improve our school.

We will look forward to hearing all of your ideas, and we will do all we can to make as many of your ideas possible!
