After our Harvest Festival at church we loaded up the minibus with our Harvest Festival food and took it down to the Salvation Army in Ramsgate. Everybody there was really kind and welcoming. It wasn’t what we were expecting as it was really busy with lots of people helping out! We were each given some jobs to do. One of the jobs was to make up food parcels for families in need. Each food parcel contained: cereal, milk, vegetables, tomato sauce, pasta, biscuits, tinned foods and potatoes. We also had to do some food sorting where we separated food parcels that had originally been made up for lorry drivers caught up in Operation Stack; they were no longer needed so had been donated to the Salvation Army. We really enjoyed the visit and it was great to be able to do something for others and give back to the community. It was amazing to see so many people wanting to help others too.
Children in Need 2023
To raise money for Children in Need, we all wore our Pudsey t shirts and ears to raise money! A big thank you to all who donated - a grand total of £113 was raised!
Red Nose Day 2022
Red Nose Day Around the school today we have had children breaking rules galore! While this isn’t something we would usually encourage, today breaking the rules was the aim of the game! The reason? Comic Relief! We’ve had hats in class, children wearing nail varnish, unhealthy snacks and a rainbow of different colour hair! The children really took to the idea of breaking the rules and donated 50p for every rule they choose to break. Our target was £100, so did we do it? Yes! We have raised a hair raising £316.20! This is an amazing amount of money – thank you for supporting our fundraising efforts for this amazing cause.
World Diabetes Day
One of our pupils has Type 1 Diabetes and was keen to run a whole school fundraising event on World Diabetes day on 14th November 2023. We all wore the colour blue and families donated £116 to the charity which supports people who live with the condition. Well done Lexi!
Rockstar Number Day
We’ve had a wonderful day celebrating the NSPCC Number Day. It was fantastic to see all the children dressed up in their best rocking gear! The children have had a fun filled day of mathematical activities, all whilst raising money for such a worthy cause. We really appreciate your support and have raised a total of £103. All the money will make an enormous difference to children today and help the NSPCC be there for children tomorrow. Year 6 used their bodies to make 2D and 3D shapes – quite a challenge but they were extremely creative and made some interesting examples! They went on to compete in the Times Table Rock Stars NSPCC Rocks Competition, working in pairs to improve their own personal bests. This afternoon saw the children using Maths Prodigy to battle against one another and use their mathematical skills to explore a magical world!
Year 5 had rock stars galore! Axel Rose and Bon Jovi’s rocking out to Maths games! For the support act, the children solved a maths mystery, using clues to solve who had stolen the towels from the PE room. Followed by first act, where they designed their own maths game, to then have a game battle of bands and complete each other’s games. For the main act of the day, the children took part in a QR quiz around the year 5 classrooms, working to solve a variety of maths-based problems.
Year 4’s number day was based on chocolate! They started by solving the mystery of the missing chocolate bar and the winning team won a chocolate treat! Next they worked together to solve multiplication calculations to find out how many pieces were in different d chocolate bars. Everyone then got to eat chocolate! After that, they created and played their very own times table games. In the afternoon everyone took part in a times table treasure hunt outside to crack the code. What a great day!
Year 3 spent the day playing lots of different maths games! They challenged each other with their number bonds and times tables and had an exciting tournament to beat the button! They loved watching different videos of people singing times tables to catchy tunes!
Christmas Jumper 2023
So far we have raised over £100 for our two charities this year! What a fantastic amount!
If you haven’t donated, but would still like to you can continue to do that online or by bringing money in next week.
Our School Council decided that Ryan and Daisy were the best dressed and they each won a little prize! But everyone looked fab and it was great to see our Christmas celebrations kicked off in style.
