Last week we elected our Year 6 House Captains, and we now need to elect our own class Student Council representatives and Library Monitors. Being part of the Student Council offers great opportunities for the children to have their say in what happens at school, from clubs to lunches, playtimes to equipment! Becoming a Library Monitor will involve responsibilities such as helping to issue and return books, supporting their peers to find books they are looking for and keeping the library looking tidy and inviting. This week as an optional homework, we are asking the children to write a speech to explain why they would be a good Student Council representative, or to complete a Library Monitor application form (children who have expressed an interest in this have been given application forms already.) The children will not have to deliver their speech to the class if they do not want to. One boy and one girl will be elected from each class as Student Council representatives and Mrs Eales will discuss the applications for Library Monitors with class teachers before making the final decision. Speeches will be heard on Tuesday 2nd October and Library Monitor applications are due in on the same date.
The Year 3 Team
Please note - later in the term we will be electing a class Eco Rep, two Art Monitors and two P.E Monitors, so there is ample opportunity for children to apply for different responsibilities.
