March 2016 Update

By March 1, 2016 No Comments

We’re well and truly into Spring term, the daffs are out and the children have been helping raise money by enjoying themselves during our sponsored Nature Walk last month. They did an incredible job and raised £2,170.30 (excl. gift aid). Well done to our top 3 fundraisers – Cameron Elmer (Goslings) who raised £100, Nevaeh Dolton (Cygnets) who raised £70 and Joshua Philips (Goslings) who raised £60, we hope you enjoyed your prizes.

We’ve had 2 cake bakes and at the moment IGUANA class are still in the lead taking £177. Will Hedgehogs take over with their bake on Friday 18 March?

Year 1 had their disco and danced till they dropped. Reception have theirs on Wednesday 16 March.

We also hosted our Annual Quiz Night, which was a roaring success. Drinks were drunk, pizza consumed, pictures painted, cards played right and the odd question answered correctly. Team Goonies were the Victors, having a Kinder toy already made may have helped (their words). £1,080 was raised. Thank you so much to Neil & Helen Waddington, Simon & Athalie Tarr and Toni Reynoldson for pulling it all together.

Our totaliser at the moment is now at a dizzying…

Since September we’ve spent money on tandem bikes for Reception, a tab charge unit and over £2,000 on the new library. Most of the money raised will be going towards a new Canopy to give our children shelter from the rain (and maybe the sun).
