The Coronation of King Charles III
The children had class parties throughout the day to celebrate the coronation of King Charles. We provided snacks, drinks, music and dancing and every child had a keepsake bookmark to commemorate the occasion!
Prize bingo was a great afternoon raising £75 and has now become a monthly event! Look out for further dates to join in the fun!
Our Easter raffle was a huge success with 60 prizes donated from parents. Every child was entered in to our ‘Golden Ticket Prize Draw’ for free with the chance to win one of the amazing hampers full of chocolate goodies. The event raised almost £300! 🥰 Every child was given a chocolate bunny gift from The Friends.
With spring coming we thought we’d brighten things up with some rainbow raffles. We had a great response from parents donating some lovely colourful gifts and were able to make up 29 hampers!
We made just over £350 in raffle ticket sales!
Due to this success we were able to hold a non uniform, Valentine’s themed disco on the last day of the half term with the children receiving a kindness card, drink and a cookie all for free.
Our Christmas events were a great success raising almost £700! We held raffles at all the Christmas performances and had a small Christmas fair after school.
For the first time since before Covid we were able to do a Santa’s grotto with the big man himself and every child received a selection box.
Huge thanks to Morrisons for helping us out with a great discount! 😊
The Friends decorated the hall and held Halloween discos for all year groups. Each child had a bottle of water, a cookie and a Halloween goodie bag!
