Year 4 Children in Need

Wow! What a wonderful Friday we had raising money for Children in Need. Students in Ash and Birch showed their support by dressing up in yellow or polka dot clothes, and there were many Pudsey ears worn! In the morning we were busy making Fairy Bread to sell at the Teddy Bear Afternoon Tea, which was a total hit with the crowd.

Then, Ash and Birch used their reciprocity skills and faced off in a coin race of pennies, and while Birch won the longest line in year 4, both classes brought in bags and bags of coins to donate to Children in Need.

Throughout the day the children watched a number of appeal videos to get a greater understanding of where their donations were going. After lunch we wrote messages of thanks and support to the Children in Need foundation, with students demonstrating reflectiveness in regards to the important work they do.

Then was time for the 'dress the teacher' competition, with both classes using recyclable materials (and anything else in the classroom) to decorate Miss Estall and Miss Hamlin.

Thank you for all of your generous donations, it was heart-warming to see and hear the children wanted to give smooch to those in need.
