The children take part in a Show Racism the Red Card activity
All the children from Year 5 took part in a day put on by Show Racism the Red Card. They completed a range of tasks throughout the morning about racism including some of the vocabulary which they may encounter and where it originates from. The sessions were a great success with the children receiving important information along with some great prizes for participation.
Children in Need 2018 was a great success with the school raising £947.25! Children wore their own clothes for a donation of £1 and donated cakes which were sold on the day for 50p. Along with this we had activities going on during the day in the school hall along with face paints. Of the money raised half was donated to children in need and the other half going to our home charity this year Alzheimer’s Society.
All the following productions take place in the school hall.
