Y6 fun days

Y6 fun days

 

Our Y6 were disappointed not to be able to go to London on their 3 day residential, but we arranged two amazing treat days for them instead.

We spent the full day on Cleethorpes beach building sandcastles and having lots of fun.  

This day was followed by an active day at Ponds Forge and Ice Sheffield, who kindly provided their services for the children.

Puppy Party

Puppy Party

Well done to our Y3 children and staff who planned and organised an amazing fundraising event this week – raising money to sponsor a guide dog.

This was the children’s idea after having our focus week on diversity and meeting a guide dog puppy.

The children had heard all about the amazing job the dogs do to support people with a visual impairment and wanted to help.

A total of over £400 was raised during the afternoon.

A big thank you to Mrs Woodcock for baking the main raffle prize of a ‘dog cake.’
