We held our summer fair on Friday, 24th June – it was a fun afternoon out for our pupils and their families, with a great atmosphere and thankfully the weather improved! We had tombola stalls, bouncy castles, BBQ, cakes, stocks, coffee cup bounce, hook-a-fish, and many more… We also had a lovely display of dancing from our DLC and Zumba clubs.
Thanks to all of you who brought in donations, manned stalls and attended the event.
We raised just over £1,600 which will go towards creating a wildlife area at the top of the field.
Extra special thank yous need to go to Mrs Harris and Ross Martin for volunteering to have wet sponges chucked at them – true dedication to the cause! And to the Oval for providing (and Dale Lambert for manning!) the BBQ – much appreciated.
Special thanks too to Emma Burden for all her work in securing advertising revenue and the great line-up of raffle prizes, and to Sara Sparrow for compiling the programme. Thank you too to all the teachers who volunteered to man a stall – we really couldn’t do it without them and we are so lucky to have their support.
Year 5 and 6 enjoyed taking part in a K’nex challenge at school today. The challenge was to design and build a catapult that could fire a table tennis ball over a wall. Well done to the children, who worked in groups to construct some amazing designs.
The winning catapult in Year 6 was made by Toby Freestone, Jessica Timmins and Lilley Walshe.
Year 5’s winners were Joseph Caffery and Malcolm Sinclair.
