Children in Need Day

For Children in Need we are asking children to come to school dressed as their favourite word.
There are a number of examples of this which you can find by typing ‘Dress up as a word’ into google images. We thought that this would be a fun and creative way for the children to mark the day. We are asking for a donation of £1 for taking part.

You will find members of the Margaret McMillan staff on the path with collection buckets on Friday 13th November at the start of the school day to drop your donations in.

All the money donated will be used to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK, and the theme is all around helping children with their mental health which seems particularly significant this year.

Year 2 will be visiting The Hindu Cultural Society Mandir. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the Hindu religion as part of their RE topic on Hinduism.

Sport Relief 2020 is just around the corner and we’ve decided to get involved, have fun and change lives. To raise money, we’re going to dress in sports wear for the day for a voluntary contribution of £1.00.

Sport Relief is a fundraising event run by Comic Relief that harnesses the power of sport, both to raise money and transform lives. The money we raise will be used to change countless lives, both here in the UK and worldwide.

£20 could help a child in Kenya return to school after living on the streets.

£250 could provide an hours’ childcare for 25 mums in the UK with postnatal depression so they can get counselling and support.

We’ll also be using Sport Relief as a learning opportunity to help our pupils explore the issues facing young people across the world, and how the money we raise can help. We really appreciate your support and we can’t thank you enough for getting involved.

The theme for this years World Book Day is ‘fairytales and fantasy’. Each year group will be focussing on different fairytales.

Nursery- Jack and the Beanstalk
Reception- The Gingerbread man
Year 2- Little Red Riding hood
Year 3-Snow White and the seven dwarfs
Year 4- Snow White and the seven dwarfs
Year 5- Goldilocks and the three bears
Year 6- Rumpelstiltskin

Children can come dressed as a character from their year group’s chosen fairytale, or any fairytale. There will also be an exciting ‘Booky breaktime’ to continue to promote the love of reading.
