Welcome from the Principal

Charities

Each year group in school takes part in fundraising activities for different charities.

Reception are supporting Birmingham Children's Hospital.

Reception were proud to support our chosen charity, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, on their fundraising day – The Big Bandage.’ On Thursday 7th July.

 

Year 1 are supporting RSPB.

Year 1 support the RSPB charity. The charity focus on supporting our British wildlife and nature reserves. British species numbers have declined dramatically in recent years and the RSPB are working hard to help their recovery. We take part in the 'Big School Bird Watch' in the Spring term and use the children's interest in birds and nature to give purpose to their data handling and non-fiction writing skills. The children take part in charity day in the Spring term to raise money for the RSPB and we invite our local falconry centre in to talk to the children and show them how the money they raise impacts on a local level. We are looking forward to supporting the RSPB again this year.

 

Year 2 are supporting the National Trust - Kinver Edge.

 

Year 3 are supporting the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

For our charity day we took part in 'Wear it Wild', this meant we all came to school dressed up as our favourite animal and had our faces painted to match our outfit at school. During our charity day we learnt animal songs, wrote acrostic poems and researched the charity. We found out that it does a lot more than just helping endangered animals! A week later we invited our grown-ups in to find out what we had been doing and they could buy refreshments while they watched us sing, read our poems and share information all about the WWF. We raised a grand total of £214 from our charity day and we are going to use this to sponsor an animal per class. The WWF will send us regular updates about how they are helping the animal we have chosen.

 

Year 4 are supporting Barnardo's.

Year 4 have been very proud to support Barnardo's as part of our Victorian topic. We have enjoyed learning all about Dr Barnardo and his fantastic work. Children have conducted research about him and created some stunning biographies all about his life and the history of children's homes. During our DT topic, we designed and created our own Christmas decorations, inspired by our learning of a Victorian Christmas. We learnt how to sew materials together and decorated some beautiful decorations to hang on our trees at home. Then, when it was our Victorian Day, we invited parents in to purchase the decorations we have made and the money that we raised was for Barnardo's. We raised over £200 which is amazing! We had such a great day in role as a Victorian school child, taking part in traditional drills, writing on chalk boards and making our own paper bags. Well done Year 4, we are very proud of you and a big thank you to your grown ups for their support.
 
Well done to all the children for their hard work and thank you to the parents for supporting the charity.
 
 

Year 5 are supporting Age UK.

Year 5 researched the Age UK charity and found out about the fantastic work that they carry out. We made posters and came up with lots of fundraising ideas.

 

Year 6 are supporting Mary Stevens Hospice.

Year 6 continue to support Mary Stevens Hospice as their chosen charity. We work closely with a member of the hospice, Laura Millard who visits Year 6 in school to talk to our pupils about how they look after their patients and the fantastic work that they do to ensure their patients and their families are looked after in the best possible way. Year 6 have raised a great deal of money through our fundraising work each year. We contribute every year to the Mary Stevens summer fete, often designing their flyers advertising the event. We look forward to raising even more money to help support this amazing and worthwhile charity in the coming year.
