Boys and girls in the Junior School raised over £800 for Children in Need by paying to come to class in homemade capes and by taking part in teddy bear themed activities last week.
Children in Need assembly
Our Junior School pupils started the day by learning exactly where the money they were raising would be going, finding out about helping others and the kind of problems that some less fortunate children face. Alexa Melia from RT said:
It made us think of children who don’t have things.
Teddy bear treats
Activities went on all day right through the school with Nursery hosting a presentation ceremony where they gave medals to each other’s teddy bears and read Goldilocks and the Three Bears before enjoying a bowl of porridge.
In the Infants the pupils made medals for their teddy bears, enjoyed teddy bear-themed maths lessons and coloured in Pudsey Bears. Anabel Brazier-Cabrejas in RH said:
My champion teddy will help other children.
The rest of the Junior School pupils wore superhero capes in conjunction with Children in Need’s super-hero theme. Some pupils had designed and made their own fantastic capes. William Bowes from Y4 said:
My cape was long and black, I felt like a Superhero. It’s good to help others.
The highlight of the day for the whole Junior School was the teddy bear’s picnic where children munched tasty treats with their favourite toys while listening to animal themed music.
Molly Coghlan from Y4 described the day:
It’s nice to think about other people, especially children.
