Events of the Week - 24 March 12
Infant Pancake Day
On Shrove Tuesday the Infant Department held a House pancake race. It was very competitive and the children took great concentration over tossing their pancakes. The results were very close with Almscliffe winning by 0.2 of a second! The children really enjoyed the event.
Year 5 Toy and Cake StallOn Thursday the pupils from Year 5 held a Toy and Cake Stall to raise money for Cancer Research UK and Children of the Andes (COTA), who raise money to help those children who live in sewers in Columbia. After listening to a talk given in PSHCE they asked if they could sell some of their unwanted toys, books and clothes.
The stall was well attended by both parents and pupils. The proceeds raised were:- £47.25 for Cancer Research UK and £46.09 for Children of the Andes.
