Year 6 pupil, Niall Martindale, asked Mr Webster if he and his classmates could produce a newsletter and this saw the arrival of the ‘Mary Go Round’. A group of 10 Year 6 pupils meet each week on Friday after school to decide on the content and having come up with the strapline ‘written by the children, for the children’, were keen to involve as many pupils as possible. The group decided on the layout and design of the newsletter and each contributed stories and articles, and designed the logo and page format.
On the last day of the half term, the first edition of the’ Mary Go Round’ was published and as with many debut publications, it included a free gift…a packet of sweets! The Newsletter club team set up their stall on the playground at the end of the day and handed out a copy to every child in school.
It is wonderful that the children have committed so much of their own time and have worked very hard to produce what is a wonderful newsletter. Well done to Editor, Niall Martindale and his team.
