Today we celebrated Comic Relief in school. Everyone came to school either wore the colour red, had a red nose or wore a special Comic Relief tshirt on. Don’t we all look fab!
This year, we didn’t ask for money donations but we asked our parents and carers to donate food to be sent to the local food bank. We’ve had an overwhelming response and we would like to say a big thank you to all of our parents and carers for donating so generously. The local food bank will be really grateful for all of our donations.

This year we celebrated Wear it Wild Day again in association with WWF. We raised money to help endangered animals all across the globe. We came to school dressed as our favourite wild animals.
Some of us didn’t know what endangered meant so we used the WWF website to help us and we learnt about some animals.
Endangered means when a species of animal is at serious risk of being made extinct.
Did you know that these animals were endangered?
- Giant Panda
- Borneo Orang-utan
- Emperor Penguin
- Black Rhinoceros
- Polar Bear
- Snow Leopard
We also linked this to the work that we continue throughout school linked to the 17 Global Goals. Click here to read our post about The World’s Largest Lesson and a little bit more on what the Global Goals are. We learnt that the work we have done link to the Global Goals 14 and 15.
We researched using fact sheets about these endangered animals to help us to learn more and then create posters to make people aware of the dangers these animals face.
Akram – We need to look after these animals before they are gone forever.
Alfie – We don’t want them to go the same way as the dinosaurs!
Oliver – Animals find it difficult in nature to survive if they haven’t got enough food or water or shelter.
Dannilou – Our money will help lots of animals forever!
Thank you to all of the parents and carers who donated money to this worthy cause. The children in Pearl class loved coming to school dressed as their favourite animal.
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.
On Friday 29th September, we held a coffee morning in the school hall for all of our parents and carers to come and attend. Each year group had been busy baking all week and in Y2, we made flapjacks.
Riley – We are raising money for poorly people and the money will help them to get better.
Laura – Our grown ups can come and buy our flapjacks and we give money to people who are poorly.
We were able to follow a set of instructions and weigh out the different ingredients carefully.
We hoped that you enjoyed eating our yummy, delicious flapjacks.
Thank you to all of our parents and carers for coming to school and supporting such a worthwhile cause.
Today, we were invited to wear the colour green to support the people suffering or were involved in the Grenfell fire in London. By wearing green, we show solidarity and support for the people who died, were injured or lost everything in this tragic event.
A huge thank you to all of our parents and carers for sending donations in for this cause. We have raised over £200. This money will go towards helping those that have been affected in London.
To finish off what has been a very busy week, Friday 24th March was Red Nose Day.
We were helping to raise money for good causes around the UK and around the world to support adults and children who are less fortunate than we are.

We even had a special themed snack – our favourites were strawberries and grapes!
We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the children and parents for sending your children to school and helping to raise lots of money for others.
