Our Year 6 children recently took part in a competition organised by the Ramsey Rotary Club. Their task was to design an emoji, incorporating the Ramsey Ram and the Rotary Wheel. Children could either work as part of a team or could work on their design by themselves.
On Monday 5th March, June Green and Chris Wick (from the Rotary Club) presented the winning group with a certificate and prize; this consisted of a £15 gift card (for each child) to spend in Tesco.
The winning design will feature on all future Ramsey Rotary Club advertisement documents!
On Wednesday 24th January, our Year 5 and Year 6 School Councillors visited Warboys Community Primary School as part of a new project called 'Councillor School Swap'. Upwood Primary and Warboys Primary have teamed up to share good practices across different areas of school life.
Our School Councillors spent the morning visiting English and Mathematics lessons at Warboys Primary and ate their lunch together to focus on specific areas which included: the school environment, both inside and outside; displays, both in classrooms and communal areas; facilities, including ICT; teaching, including the quality of teaching resources; learning, including book scrutiny and children's behaviour in general. In addition to identifying and sharing these areas of strengths, our School Councillors also set targets for Warboys School Council to consider.
The visit culminated with the School Councillors sharing their pupil voice in each area with the head teacher, Mrs Boxall, who very much appreciated the children's views of the school.
The School Councillors, from Warboys, then visited us on Wednesday 7th February to complete their observations.
The experience was extremely positive and we are all looking forward to working on our targets!
