At our first meeting we discussed the roles and responsibilities of the school ambassadors. We also talked about projects that we are keen to get involved with. Here are some of our ideas.
Improving the school playground; We have looked at a trim trail and have three companies coming in to meet with us very soon.
Keeping the surrounding areas clean; We have already contacted the Co-Op and they've agreed to supply us with cleaning equipment.
Keeping children safe and reducing car fumes around the school- We want less traffic and no parking! we have already contacted the Mayor and we are hoping to get some new road signs in place shortly.
The Ambassadors are hoping to get some funding to help improve our bike shed. It will hopefully persuade more children to cycle to school!

The ambassadors have been helping with ways to make the playground more interesting at lunchtimes. I think they have been successful...
School Playground Project
The school ambassadors have been working alongside architects to come up with ideas for our playground space. We have linked it into the story of the Mayflower Ship and included the storytelling element into our plans.
After working with the architects our designs were put into a plan.

School Ambassadors visited the Houses of parliament recently. We had a great tour, talked about democracy and we also got to speak to our local MP Jim Fitzpatrick.
What a fantastic assembly. The children were able to talk confidently about the Houses of Parliament.
They explained that the ambassadors were like the MPs working in the house of commons (voted in by the children of mayflower school. They take ideas to the house of lords (the experts in their field-the teachers)
So we found out about Parliament- We heard about King Charles I and how he tried to battle Parliament-but he lost and was sentenced to death.
Now the ambassadors will create a display in the chool with many more facts.
School Ambassadors visited the Houses of Parliament this week. We discovered lots of amazing facts and can't wait to shre them in a whole school assembly. We will be able to teach everybody about democracy.

Mayflower’s Ambassadors are working hard to improve the quality of playtimes. We started off by asking the children to think about their playtime and vote for the most appropriate statement. Here are the results
Our Target: For 70% of children to vote for playtime being fantastic. After implementing our new ideas we will re-assess this percentage in the spring term.
