We are hoping to smash previous successes and fill 100 shoeboxes to send to children less advantaged than those at our school.
A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal.
This year we already have the shoeboxes waiting to be filled so are asking for children to bring in items that could be included in the boxes.
*School supplies such as pencils, pens, crayons, notebooks, colouring books, solar calculators etc.
*Non-liquid hygiene items – toothbrushes, toothpaste, bars of soap, flannels, combs etc.
*Puzzles, colouring books, story books.
*Cars, dolls, toys.
Any item that you think a child would enjoy playing with, or using, on Christmas Day would be gratefully received.
If you wish to discuss this with a member of staff, please contact Mrs Hilton-Loom or Mrs Brown.
Graffiti Stars Masterclass
On Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd October, years five and six had an awesome time of creating their very own graffiti art. The Graffiti Stars masterclass, led by Leon Henderson (a professional graffiti artist), taught the children all about urban graffiti, creating stencils and spray-painting techniques before the they got to give it a go themselves.
We were very impressed with the artwork produced by all of the classes. Here is a sneak peek at some of their valiant efforts. If you want to see or find out more, please come and visit our Urban Pioneers Gallery for parents – October 19th @3pm.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
On Friday 29th September the Dining Hall became a hive of activity when the PTA held a ‘Coffee Morning’ in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research. Parents, carers, staff and members of the local community kindly donated a wide variety of cakes, buns and delicious treats to sell in order to raise money for this wonderful charity.
Thank you to everyone who helped organise and run the event, and to all the parents, carers, relatives and pupils who attended. In total a wonderful £325 was raised which has been sent to Macmillan Cancer Research.
Key Stage One Camping Day
On Thursday 14th September we were hoping for a lovely Summer’s day. The tents were up, the beach was ready, the games were set up and the children were all dressed in their holiday clothes all set for Camping Day!
