Your new Pupil Council reps would like to say hello and welcome you to your new school year.
We have already been working hard and meeting to discuss your ideas and suggestions and will be sharing these regularly with you in class council meetings.
We look forward to letting you know about all the work we are doing in 2023/2024 and updating our website page as often as we can!
Autumn Primary Parliament
On Wednesday 27th September, Year 5 and 6 Pupil Council attended the Autumn Primary Parliament. The theme was to design communal outdoor spaces to make them child friendly. The day included a visit to empty spaces around Nottingham town centre, making Lego designs and drawing up plans for outdoor areas.
Later, they presented them to Primary Parliament members and councillors. The children had a great time, as always.
Spring Primary Parliament 2023
Mrs Mckenna and four year 4 and 5 children attended Primary Parliament at the Council House. The theme was Safer and Greener Communities. As always the children had lots of fun designing and making posters and tiles and discussing their ideas with other schools and local councillors.
Primary Parliament 7th November 2022
On Monday 7th November 2022, members of our Pupil Council went to the Council House for Primary Parliament. The topic was 'making Nottingham a more diverse city.' The children did some drama and art work to reflect this. The children had a great day working with other children doing workshops.
At the end of the day, the children presented their ideas and work to the Lord Mayor, to the rest of the Pupil Council and to other council officials.
Pupil Council 21/22
Gardening at the Coop
Mrs McKenna and Miss Hunt took the Pupil Council to the Coop precinct to weed and tidy up Glade Hill's planter which is situated between the shops. The children had great fun digging and weeding.
Pupil Council did a book scrutiny to look at the consistency of Maths and English books across the school. We looked at green pen responding, presentation, underlining, number formation and use of line guides.
This year Pupil Council have been finding out what Glade Hill pupils think about our school library. We have decided to reignite the library's status in school and revamp it over the year. Pupil Council have been asking the opinion of their classes but this week they have been to visit another school's library to gain ideas on how we could improve or change ours.
Here are our Pupil Council exploring the Harry Potter themed school library at Dovecote Primary School. There was much to enjoy and many gasps as they walked in! Take a look for yourselves...
