It’s been a while since my last post and a lot has happened! I now have a grand total but before I reveal that I wanted to share what our school did to make a difference. Like Partington’s idea, we chose lots of different charities, including the Shannon Bradshaw Trust, which we raised over £2000 for with a Young Apprentice Challenge for our Key Stage 2 children and the staff took part in ‘It’s a Knockout’. I owe a huge thanks to Lisa Horton one of our Teaching Assistants who worked with my mum and had a vision of recreating this competition for our teachers. It was such good fun and the children and parents loved watching our daft behaviour, we all got the chance to act like big kids and we loved it, check out this video put together by another talented TA Jill Jaeger, she captured the fun perfectly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7yrz0ADWEI. We raised a huge amount of nearly £1000 which was fantastic!
Our MAD Week took place at the beginning of June, I’ve attached or newsletter which explains it all but it’s safe to say I was bowled over once again by people’s generosity and once again children definitely made a difference!
