ISS, our school dinner providers, contacted our School Council asking us to hold class councils to find out new and popular meal ideas for next Winter. Some very popular ideas, such as stew and an all-day breakfast were suggested. We are looking forward to seeing what ISS thought to our ideas and looking out for any of our suggestions making the menu next Winter!
School Council have been busy making posters to advertise and promote the breakfast initiative we will be starting. Our school have teamed with 'Magic Breakfast' to offer bagels for all pupils. We are excited to see this initiative launch after our hard work carrying out questionnaires and meeting with adults to discuss the steps involved.
Over the past few months we have been discussing changes we would like to see -both our indoor and outdoor learning environments.
One thing that came up in our discussion was to have snacks at breaktimes and we discovered that many children were really hungry by dinner time.
As a school council we decided to do some research about what pupils were having for breakfast and whether they were filling themselves up!
We have now created and conducted our questionnaires with our classes and we are looking forward to collating the results and making an action plan.
During this Harvest Time, the children of High View have been busy collecting food and drink, particularly tinned food to donate to the Barnsley Food Bank.
A huge thank you to School Council for spreading the word! Thank you to Year 4 for making posters to advertise the food and drink items that were needed the most. Thank you to Year 5 who have delivered the food to the Food Bank unit today. Thank you to everyone who donated!
Well, what an exciting year this has been! We have achieved lots over the course of the year and managed to help improve our school... Take a look at what we have done!
We are already looking forward to next year, to continue improving our already wonderful school!
If you want to be part of school council next year, make sure you let your teacher know during democracy week so your class can vote for you!
Today at our school council meeting, Miss Smith asked us a very exciting question:
What do you want to learn about?
School council have a mission to go back to our own classes and ask what would everyone like to learn about during topic lessons.
We are very excited about this as it means we have the chance to change our topics to make learning more fun!
What do YOU want to learn about?
Make sure you tell your school council rep!
School council have been asked to improve Golden Time.
On Friday afternoons, we earn 45 minutes of Golden Time for following the Golden Rules. There are many clubs to choose from each week such as Computers, Quick Crafts and Library Time.
There are also clubs which we can sign up for, to last the whole half term, to develop our skills such as sewing, drawing and sketching and PE Games.
Even though we LOVE Golden Time, children have been asking for some different clubs to try so school council are going to work with Mrs Timmington to improve our Golden Time.

This week, school council met with the head of the kitchen to discuss the changes each class wanted to see on the school dinner menu. We discussed healthy eating and making sure we had access to a varied, balanced diet but something that was still yummy to eat!
Watch this space for our NEW and IMPROVED menu!
Something most classes wanted back on the menu was 'pasta pot'
The head of the kitchen has agreed to put pasta pot back on the menu on
Tuesday and Thursdays!
