(Letter sent home.)
School Council Visit to London Parliament - Term 1: The School Council had a successful visit to London. They had an excellent tour of the Palace of Westminster, including the House of Commons and House of Lords. They learnt about democracy in our country as well as lots of information about the amazing building. They met our MP John Penrose and were able to ask him lots of questions! They even managed to squeeze in some site-seeing and shopping! The children’s interest and questioning were a credit to them during their very long day. A big thank you to Ms Barnes, Mrs Campbell and Mr Phillips who organised and took them on their London Visit.

Worle Community School Photography Project
During Term 3 the School Council took part in a photography project with Worle Community School, which involved taking photographs of school life, which will be used to illustrate our school's vision statements. These will eventually be displayed around the school. The children were then invited to Worle's Apple Suite, where they edited their pictures. This was an exciting project and a chance for our children to be taught by staff and children from Worle.
