Caring pupils shine for Children In Need
The Junior School raised an impressive £643 for Children In Need as they dressed up and took part in a range of activities to support the well-known national charity.
Boys and girls from Pre-Reception to Year Six donned colourful onesies, pyjamas, dressing gowns and superhero outfits as they turned the playground and rooms into a celebration of colour!
In assembly, pupils were told more about Children In Need. They learnt that the charity supports over 3,000 local charities and projects in communities across the UK with grants that help children and young people who are disadvantaged.
Throughout the day, pupils partook in ‘bear’ themed activities.
In Pre-Reception, pupils created their own bear faces with crumpets, chocolate spread, bananas and chocolate drops whilst, at lunchtime, they devoured tasty Pudsey-topped buns – courtesy of the school’s wonderful Catering Team.
In Year Two classes, the boys and girls made money boxes and bookmarks.
The Junior School Library even created a bear section that included titles such as ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’, ‘I’ll Wait, Mr Panda’ and ‘The Bear Who Went Boo!’
Speaking about the day, the Junior School’s Charity Co-ordinator Mrs Lisa Turner said: “I feel very proud of all of our children, they always support such a worthy cause with enthusiasm. Thank you to everyone for your kind donations.”
Tire F in Reception “loved wearing my special Pudsey outfit” and Year One pupil Ammara I excitedly exclaimed: “I wore my Pudsey ears”.
Year Two pupil Gene M said: “I like to support other children in the country – and children in other parts of the world” whilst Eliana M added: “Mummy and I wanted to give money to help other children.”
