KS1 Bake Sale

This week, KS1 held a bake sale for FS and KS1 to continue to raise money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital. Click here to see what we did on our first fundraising event.

Y2 decided that they wanted to make chocolate crispy buns.

We worked together as a team to follow a recipe, help each other out and make the tastiest chocolate crispy buns ever!


They tasted yummy!

A massive thank you to all of the parents and carers in FS and KS1 who helped to make the Bake Sale such a success with their kind donations. We made a grand total of £88.00. This money will be added to the previous money raised for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

This year, we are helping to raise money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital and we have lots of events planned throughout the year to help us to raise the most money possible. This money will go and support poorly children and their families to help give them a better quality of life whilst they are in hospital.

Friday 6th October 2017 was our first fundraising event and we had a non-uniform day. Everyone came to school dressed in their brightest and boldest colours. By the end of Friday, school had raised an amazing £215. Thank you to all of our parents and carers for supporting such a worthwhile cause.

Keep your eyes peeled for letters coming home soon about more fundraising events and how you can support them.

Moving to Year 3

Over the past few weeks, we have been having a taster of what it is going to be like in Y3. We are moving up into Aquamarine Class in Y3 and our new teacher is Miss Croxall. Our new teaching assistant is going to be Miss Beckingham.

Lots of things are going to be different next year. We will have a different classroom, a different cloakroom to put our things away in and different toilets to use but most of all, we have to go up some stairs to get to our new classroom.

Click here to check out Aquamarine class blog here to find out what they have been up to this year. All the exciting learning that we will do in Y3 will be on this blog too.

We are very excited to becoming Y3s but we will miss Miss Varley and Miss Morris.

The final piece of homework given is to be completed over the holidays. Can you do any of the things on the list below? Send some photographs and a message to Miss Croxall to let her know all of the fun things that get up to in the holidays.
