Today I met with our Student Council consisting of representatives carefully voted by their peers from each class within Years 1 - 9. I was very impressed by the sense of responsibility and maturity that all students demonstrated as they understood their important role in voicing their ideas and listening to each other too. We discussed the values that we feel Britannica embodies; how we can show this in everything we say and do and how we can inspire others to do the same. I am already looking forward to our next meeting and know that our Student Council reps are too!

Feedback following parent teacher meetings this week has been very positive and I do hope you found it useful to discuss with your child’s class teacher about their learning and the progress they are making. Should you need any more information or have further questions about your child’s learning do please continue to contact the form teacher. We also look forward to welcoming parents to school next week to discover more about our planned Y4-6 residential and later in the week to celebrate the end of Sustainability Week with an incredible trashion show!

Also, this week, Year 6 scientists have been learning all about the digestive system and how essential nutrients are and Year 3 investigates how shadows change in size as they prepare for a shadow puppet show. Whilst, Year 5 have been exploring the Vikings and Year 4s have been delving further into their knowledge about the Ancient Greeks. Meanwhile, Year 2 conducted a lively class debate surrounding whether it would be a good idea to live near a volcano and Year 1 have excitedly learnt all about Neil Armstrong and his achievements!
