Pyjama Day for Water Aid
On Friday 24th February 2017, Edith May Class ran a Charity Fundraising Event inspired by their learning about Harvest in the Autumn Term. The children in Edith May wanted to raise awareness about the importance of access to clean water. They had learnt through PSHE that for some children this is a daily struggle. To raise awareness and funds, all of the children in the school were invited to come to school wearing their pyjamas, for the princely sum of £1. We raised £87.00 for this event. Thank you to all of those of you who supported us with this.

This money will help to support the refurbishment of the Woolverstone MacMillan Centre. Please see the thank you letter from Macmillan Cancer Support below.
Children in Need 21st November 2016
A huge thank you to all of those of you who supported us to raise money for this event. Edme Class and the School Council Representatives showed great enterprise and industry as they organised activities such as a Sponsored Silence, a Sponsored Walk, a Spotacular Spot Seek and a Guess the number of Smarties on the Cake. We raised a fantastic £197.24 for this worthwhile cause, which is great! A special 'Thank You' to Kia from Edme Class who made a magnificent cake for the Guess the Smarties fundraiser. The cake was won by Mr Cornish, who very kindly shared it with all the staff. The cake was delicious! Thank you all once again.

It was wonderful to see the children in their bright clothes today - so many inventive ways to stand out and get noticed.

Now that darker nights are upon us, it is essential that we all take greater care on the roads at night. Well done to the Junior Road Safety Officers for organising this special event and for helping the children to understand the importance of road safety at this time of year.
