The votes were counted earlier in the week revealing that Henry, Year 3, had been chosen to be our Prime Minster for the Day!
Henry had chosen for the children (and staff!) to have a comfy day, coming to school in their pyjamas. The children were also allowed to bring in their own toys and electronic games which they played with during their extended golden time. The most exciting part of the day was the lunch disco which was held in our Atrium.
Well done Henry, we all agree you were a fantastic Prime Minister!
British Values Week
Who will win the election to become Shillingstone Primary School’s Prime Minister for the day?
It is our British Values week this week and children have been learning about democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.
Children have put themselves forward and canvassing to become Prime Minister for the day, which will be on Friday 25th November. Candidates have been posting their ideas around the school on posters and fliers to try and win votes. The children have thought of some interesting ideas, to put into place if they win the election, such as non-school uniform and extra Golden Time.
Children have cast their votes today in our polling station. We look forward to finding out who has won the vote to become Prime minister for the day!
Congratulations to our Tag Rugby team, who won the Pyramid Tag Rugby tournament on Thursday 6th October 2016. All the players worked brilliantly together as a team and had a fantastic team spirit! Well done to you all, a fantastic achievement!
We held our Harvest thanksgiving service this afternoon (Friday 30th September 2016). We would like to thank all the parents/careers and children for their kind donations of canned and tinned food, which will be donated to the Blandford Foodbank. Well done to all!
