Sport Relief Day

On Sport Relief day, Walton school raised money for Sport relief.
The School Council members sold Sport Relief wristbands for £1 on the school gate in the morning.
Because of the special situation we were allowed to wear our wristbands for one week.

We were allowed to wear sporty clothes on Sports Relief day and bring in 50p to go towards the charity.


The LSA’s went against the Teachers in a netball match: the LSA’s won 3-2.
Later in the day, the LSA’s played our school netball team and the overall winners were the LSA’s.


In the afternoon, every class had to pick a fun thing to do around the field for a mile.
For example, year 2 flipped pancakes for a mile and year 4 danced the conga for a mile.

School council helped this by measuring the field and the playground to measure out a mile.


Walton School raised £406 for Sports Relief.

Numbers Day

On Numbers Day, we raised money for the NSPCC. We were allowed to wear non-uniform for a donation of 50p.
Our clothes had to have numbers on them, for example a football shirt, or we were allowed to wear our onesies.

In assembly we had a number quiz which was the children against the teachers.
In the afternoon, the whole school played fun maths games.

It was a good day as we got to raise money for Charity and have fun and learn a lot!

How to be a School Councillor


To be a school council member you have to be confident in what you say and what you do. Also you need to have a good memory or otherwise there will be no point of you being in the school council because you would need to discuss stuff with your class.

The most important thing is to smile and be respectful to teachers and other people around the school.



To be a School Council member people from your class vote a sensible boy and girl.
When they have voted our teachers add up the votes and call out the boy and girl who has the most votes.
There is also a reserve which is the boy and girl that has the 2nd most votes.



Finally the School Councillors welcome all the visitors and show new class mates around as well.
