Junior School pupils get crafty for charity
Junior School pupils raised an incredible £1,355 for Children in Need by taking part in a wide range of arts and crafts based activities.
In exchange for a donation to the charity, the boys and girls came to school in clothing suitable for ‘crafting’ – something they didn’t mind getting paint, glitter or glue on!
The theme this year was ‘Together, We Can’ and the children did lots of activities that demonstrated togetherness and collaboration.
Charity Co-ordinator Mrs Lisa Turner and the Charity Reps Sienna E and Adara D kicked off proceedings in assembly and the Year Six girls worked together with Mrs Koziel to draw Pudsey in front of the whole school.
In their morning lessons, boys and girls from Nursery to Year Two utilised their creative skills as they dived into craft activities.
Nursery pupils got their fingers dirty as they made some colourful Pudsey headbands.
Reception pupils created some tasty looking snacks with smarties and white chocolate buttons and they demonstrated their artistic flair as they made Pudsey style eye-patches!
Year One pupils used some glue as they worked on a collaborative project to decorate Pudsey and Year Two boys and girls demonstrated their flair for art with some vibrant paintings.
At lunchtime, the children headed to the Dining Hall where they were excited to taste the Pudsey biscuits that the Catering Manager Mrs Kathy Gosling had created.
In their craft activities, Year Three pupils worked on different parts of an artwork that would be put together to make a big top for a circus.
Year Four meanwhile worked collaboratively to create an Egyptian headdress that would sit on top of a profile shot they had taken of themselves. This linked to work they were doing in their normal lessons.
Year Five children made colourful Pudsey holders for their pens and pencils and Year Six worked in teams to create some amazing looking artwork made out of clay that related to work they had been doing in lessons.
