5 Pits Pupil Parliament
Well Being and Exercise - October 2023
On 18th October 2023, some of our school council representatives visited Tibshelf Townend to take part in a 5 Pits Pupil Parliament event. Lots of local schools took part. They linked well-being with physical activity and took part in lots of sporty events. As usual, behavior and attitude from Stonebroom pupils were superb.
Outdoor Learning- Stonebroom Forest School
On 19th June 2023, lots of local schools from our cluster (Pilsley, Blackwell, Morton, Tibshelf, Shirland & Stretton) came to Stonebroom Primary School to take part in some outdoor learning. They visited the Animal Park and then went into Forest Schools to look at the creatures who make their habitats in the pond. They all loved the afternoon and asked if they could return next year!!
Pupil parliament met for the first time this year at Tibshelf Community school to discuss cyber bullying. Four representatives attended from Stonebroom and worked with other local schools to determine what cyber bullying was and ways we could deal with it. We created a PowerPoint presentation which we will bring back to Stonebroom and present to the rest of the school for anti-bullying week next week. Well done to our wonderful representative who presented today to the audience at Tibshelf, you were so confident!

Pupil Parliament meeting at Stonebroom Primary school
Pupil Parliament met for the first time this academic year for a meeting in the grounds of Stonebroom Community Woodland.
We were joined by School Council representatives from other schools within the Five Pits Partnership for some team building activities.
We spent some time on our wonderful animal park, discussing how we care for the animals and the jobs the children have during their Forest School sessions. We then moved into the woodland where our activity was introduced to us in the meadow. The children were asked to make a boat the would float in the water; they used the logs provided by Miss Thompson but foraged for their sails and decorations. They then tried out their boats and had to use their problem solving skills and discussion skills if they would not float.
All the children demonstrated excellent behaviour and worked well with people they had not met before.
Well done to all the School Councils.
