Our Yr 6 pupils have excelled themselves yet again. This time it was their work on raising money for their chosen charity in Charity Week.
Our pupils chose a charity close to their heart – contact the charity, ask for things to sell or promotion information and then set about creating games, cooking, baking, creating exciting and fun activities for their stalls. Then we invite out parents / carers and wider family into school to play on the games and buy the goodies!
The children spoke at assembly the week before highlighting why they chose their charity and what we could expect during the week. This was a really humbling experience – the children chose the charities, often based on personal experience, including losing a much loved relative to cancer for example. They were all determined to do their best and help others, by raising as much money as they could, for their own special / personal reason. Truly wonderful.
