End of Term Celebration

We are starting to pan our summer celebration. Everyone has worked hard in school. We are finding out what the children want to do to celebrate at the end of term before the holiday. When we know what people think we can try and plan something fun. It will take lots and lots and lots of time to think about it and sort everything out so we need to do it soon.

 

Film Club Review – Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3

What type of film? Animation film. It was a comedy film and an action film.

What age is it good for? Everyone’s age at school. The Characters go on adventure and they meet a toy who is a bully but it works out ok in the end.

What was it like? It was a good film. It was a funny adventure story. It wasn’t too long. There were good boy and girl characters in it and some animals too. It was a little bit like Toy story 1 and 2, so if you have seen them Toy Story 3 might not be as good.

Did we like it or not? We liked it. It might be better if you haven’t seen the other 2 films because they are all pretty much the same story. It got 3 votes out of 5

Film Club Review – Toy Story 2

Toy Story 2

 What type of film? Animation film. It was a comedy film and an action film.

What age is it good for? Everyone’s age at school. There was a little scary bit with a bad guy in but it was a very short bit. No one at school got scared.

What was it like? It was a good film. It was a funny adventure story. It was about being a good friend and team work. It wasn’t too long. There were good boy and girl characters in it and some animals too. There were real people but it is mostly a story about the toys.

Did we like it or not? We liked it. It got 5 votes out of 5

 

Today’s Student Council Meeting

Today’s student council meeting was about all the things we think work and don’t work well for us as students at school. We also had a few ideas about how to make things better. We wrote all of these down and they will be sent to the senior leader ship team (that’s the adults in charge of the school).

The hydrotherapy pool is getting the new lights, speakers and switches we asked for in the half term holiday.

The school road is going to be changed a bit to make it safer for us students in the school holidays too.

 

Food Glorious Food

At the last meeting we talked about the food we liked and didn’t like on the menu. We talked about what meals the students would like on the new menu. This has been told to the kitchen manager and she will talk to her boss about it. After Easter we will have a new menu at school that we have helped to make.

 

We’re off to South Africa!

In the summer of 2018, a group of ETS students and staff will be embarking on a trip of a lifetime to South Africa! To commemorate this fantastic opportunity, and to keep all parties updated, we have launched a new mini-site which will act as both a progress-tracker and, when the trip occurs, a blog of all their fabulous activities which they’ll update as they explore this fabulous country!

To take a look and follow them every step of the way, either click the link on the top menu bar, or follow the URL below:

Everyone will be the best they can be; Everyone has a voice; No-one is excluded.
