During Lent many of us are reminded once again to ask, ‘What can we do for others?’ We decided to let the children choose as a class which charity they would like to support and how they would like to raise some money.

We have now completed all our charity events and they have been amazing with lots of money raised for some great charities.

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us!

In total we have raised over £2,000. WOW!

Bunnies' Lent Collection

Bunnies took part in a Sponsored Brick Tower build on the week beginning Monday 12th March for The Yorkshire Children’s Trust and have raised an amazing £400!

Owls' Lent Collection

Owls have been on a Save the Children Muddy Puddle Walk around the local area and raised a wonderful £77. A huge thank you to all the parent helpers who got involved.

Reception’s Lent Collection

Reception took part in a sponsored blind activity. Whilst wearing blindfolds they completed an obstacle course. Reception collected a fabulous £299.70 for guide dogs for the blind. This is enough for 3 guide dog puppies to be trained.

Class 1’s Lent Collection

Class 1 held a book sale to raise money for Project Polar Bear (with Yorkshire Wildlife Park) on Wednesday 14th March. They raised £178.70! Well done Class 1!

Class 2’s Lent Collection

Class 2 decided to hold a cake sale to raise money for a child who lives in Ghana. Baby John, who Class 2 have heard lots about this year, lives in hospital and is an orphan. Mrs Dixon sponsors Baby John after her visit to a school in Ghana last year. They raised £130!

Class 3's Lent Collection

Class 3 have walked the equivalent miles to take them from Land’s End to John O’Groats. This has taken some weeks! The miles were tallied on a daily basis and the class have tracked their progress on a map. They have raised £323 pounds, enough to sponsor 4 tigers!

Class 4's Lent Collection

Class 4 took part in a sponsored Den Build, a project that is linked to their India topic. They raised an amazing £545 for Save the Children, this is enough to build two family homes in India. Well done Year 4!

Class 5's Lent Collection

Class 5 asked parents and children in the yard to guess how many sweets are in the jar on Friday 16th March. The £141.05 raised will go to Noah’s Arc who offer support to bereaved children, a charity close to their hearts.

Class 6's Lent Collection

Class 6 have washed the staff’s cars and the school mini buses on Wednesday 28th March  and charged them lots! They raised £280 for Muscular Dystrophy UK.
