Term 2 

Year 5 will be supporting:

Hospital charity maximises fundraising for sick children 

On Wednesday 6th December, Year 5 had the perfect opportunity to work off their delicious school Christmas dinner when they undertook a sponsored walk around the school premises.  The aim was to work together to walk the distance from school to Great Ormond Street (48.9 miles) but in the end they managed to do this 3 times over!   

They chose Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity in support of some of our families who have received excellent care from the hospital.   The weather was fine, Christmas music was playing and biscuits were provided to help refuel every 5 laps or so.   

We are very proud of Year 5 as they raised, at last count, an incredible £1155.68 from their sponsored walk for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital Charity. The charity is so important to many of our families and we couldn’t be happier with this fabulous total. Well done Year 5.  

 

Term 3 

Children's Respite Trust | Uckfield

 Year 2 will be holding a  Charity Event to raise money for The Children’s Respite Trust.  This is a local charity based in Uckfield that raises money for disabled children and their families in Sussex and Kent.

Year 2 raised £403 for their chosen charity, who are delighted with their contribution.

Term 4
