The children and staff wore their pyjamas to school to raise money for the charity Comic Relief. Biscuits were also sold at playtime to aid our fundraising for Red Nose Day 2013. We raised the magnificent sum of approximately £135.00 which we will be sending off shortly to the Charity. Well done everyone!

Staff and children from Abbotskerswell Primary are exploring how to work more closely in partnerships with other schools. We are investigating how to make strong links that are beneficial to us all. As part of this, the older student councillors visited Decoy Primary School on 6th March 2013 to look at similarities and differences, as well as ideas to help us all make behaviour better in our schools. I also spent time with Gill O’Neil, the Headteacher from Decoy, discussing the best way our schools can support each other. The student councillors from Decoy will be visiting us after the Easter break.

Two members of the school council wrote about their day at Decoy School:
On 6th March the KS2 school councillors went to Decoy Primary School to see the differences between a big school and a small school. There were some differences and some similarities. We had a big piece of paper to write down our ideas about behaviour and rules. We wrote about the ones we already have and some that we need. Abbotskerswell and Decoy did a sheet each. When we had both finished we compared them to see what was the same.
Then we went outside with the other children at playtime and got to interact with the others in the school. Then the bell rang and we went into the hall for an assembly and a teacher read a story to the whole school. Then we got to go up stairs and have a drink and a biscuit.
Finally we went down stairs to the mini bus where we said goodbye and left. It was a very fun day. We took all our info back to school and shared it to the class.
