In March the Year 5 and 6 school councillors organised a successful fundraising event for Sports Relief. They planned a range of exciting activities to not only raise money for charity but to also encourage the children to become active. The events included: a penalty shootout, an obstacle race, a hula and skipping challenge and a basketball shoot.
This term the school council have been gathering ideas about how we can improve the lunchtime, playtime and after school club provision in Grove School. Children suggested that there should be a variety of seasonal fruit available during the Summer term such as peaches and strawberries for children to choose during playtimes. The school council also came up with the idea of having background music to listen to while they ate their lunch. For afterschool clubs, the children would like to see a wider variety of activities being offered such as art club or games club. The school council are looking forward to implementing some of these wonderful ideas.
