Children raise money for Barnardo’s

Our Reception Class held their yearly Barnardo’s Toddle at the end of June and unfortunately it was exceptionally wet at the time so we had our picnic in the classroom and discussed how Barnardo’s help the boys and girls by raising money.  The yellow Believe in Children collection boxes were taken back to branch and counted.  To date we have raised £957.80 with some boxes still to be counted.

 Spyke Marshall Burnell (Yr 5) raised £150 and Angel Grace Smith (Reception) both independently raised large amounts of money and were presented with a special Barnardo’s teddy by Miss Yarrow during our celebration assembly.

Y4 acquire skills that will last a lifetime

We have been very grateful to be able to welcome members of The Prince of William Award SkillForce team into School to work with all the children in Year 4. 

The SkillForce team work with schools across the UK to help children and young people aged 5-19 to develop self-confidence, resilience and character.  The instructors are predominantly ex-Services personnel who now serve their communities by delivering motivational mentoring and inspiring education programmes.

The children had an amazing experience working with the team and learnt important teamwork and problem solving skills that will set them up for life.

The project is informed by the vision and principles of our Royal Patron, HRH The Duke of Cambridge KG KT.
