The annual BBC Children In Need fundraising event will also take place on Friday 15th November. In order to raise money for the charity there are specific events happening in the academy on this date. Children are invited to take part in our ‘PJ Day’ for a donation of 50p. Children are also able to wear any Children In Need merchandise. If your child is due to take part in PE on this day, please make sure adequate clothing and footwear is worn. We also ask that children are wearing suitable clothing and footwear for outdoor playtimes in the playground. We are also holding a ‘Bring A Bear’ event, where children are invited to bring their teddy bears with them to school for a donation of 50p. This year, the academy will also be a holding a special and exciting event – ‘Sponge A Teacher’! Weather permitting, this is due to take place at 3.30pm in the MUGA area of our playground. Please note: as this event will be taking place at 3.30pm, we ask that you first collect your children as normal and then head over to grab your sponge! We are asking donations of 20p per sponge, or three for 50p. We would like to thank our brave staff volunteers for this in advance!
