Over 20,000 tonnes of batteries end up in landfill sites – that’s as heavy as 4,000 elephants!
Last term the school council set the children a challenge to collect up as many used batteries as they could. Everyone did an amazing job, some even speaking to local shops and businesses to help.
On Friday 26th April the school council spent the morning counting up everyone’s batteries. The infant and junior children collected a total of 6742!! Well done everyone. Please keep collecting and pop them in our recycling battery containers in the front offices.
The school council visted Pizza Express in Norwich and got to become chefs for the morning. They learned all about how pizzas are made, where the ingredients come from and some secrets for how to make the best pizza. They had a great time and got to bring their yummy creations back to school to enjoy.
Year 2 in both Mundesley Infants and Bacton Primary spent the afternoon at Cromer Academy, taking part in a tro-golf event. They had a great time practising their golfing skills and taking part in a competition.
While the schools didn’t win, they all tried their best, showed great sportsmanship and supported each other through the event. Well done Year 2, you did us very proud!
2018 was the year of ‘Lights, Camel, ACTION!’ The children put on a fantastic show of tango dancing inn-keepers, funky camels and disco stars. They did an amazing job and we are very proud of how well they worked together.
An enormous thank you to those who came and/or supported our first family bingo night at MIJS. Everyone we spoke to said they had a great night and we can’t wait to plan another one next term.
Alongside the movie nights we held, you helped us raise £624.52!! We are currently in discussions about the next stage of our field development so plan to use the money towards some of this project. The school councils will be meeting this term to discuss possible options which we will share with you in the near future. We’d like to publicly thank our bingo caller Maggie who kindly gave up her time to lead the proceedings.
Thank you again for your support, it’s very much appreciated and means we can continue to improve the things we can offer your children.
On Thursday 15th November Kym from The Co-Op came to talk to the school council about democracy. Kym told us all about how the Co-Op was set up and how they formed a council. We thought about how this compared with our own and realised we were voted and formed in the same way.
Kym also shared some chocolate with us to teach us about the importance of fair trade. Did you know, that in the UK we eat 50 billion bananas every year!?
