Year 2 were invited to take part in a sports festival at St Bede’s in Lanchester.
The children enjoyed the festival and took part on lots of different sport activities.
Year 2 invited their parents / grandparents to their “Seeing is Believing” event – where there was a carousel of topics they had been learning about throughout Year 2.
They have learnt about:
Florence Nightingale, The Great Fire of London, George Stephenson, Australian Flags, Aboriginal Art and Around the world making Chinese Dragons.
This was a fun community event with the aim of raising as much money as we could for Cancer Research UK. Children came into school dressed in their sports kit with pink added extras such as pink wig, hat, feather boa and tutu. We also had a PINK cake stall and a raffle.
So far we have raised in excess of £1000.00 – THANK YOU for all your kind donations!
A special thank you to Kirsty Lawrence, our local Tesco Community Champion, who came to start the race and provided a bottle of water for every child!
