Stradbroke's Prime Minister Election - June 9th 2017

Election fever hit Stradbroke last week as the campaign for our first ever Prime Minister got underway.

After a tough interview process before half term, six Y5 candidates were chosen to go on to design their own campaign culminating in an impressive speech detailing aspects of their manifesto. Tension reached fever pitch, with every child in school voting for their favourite candidate.

After what felt like an eternity, votes were counted and verified and the results were in. Due to the calibre of the other candidates Mr Sitch decided to appoint a Deputy Minister to support the overall winner.

Stradbroke's new Prime Minister is Joshua Mellor!

The new Deputy Minister is Grace Finchett!

Culture Week

Culture Week was the last week of the Spring term where the theme was 'Standing on the Shoulders of Giants'.

Each year group chose someone famous from Sheffield to do a character description about and also went on a trip to an area of interest within Sheffield.
