What a success it was!
The idea of this morning was for the children and adults in our school to donate time to our local community.
Thank you to everyone involved, to families who donated items, volunteers who helped, staff who were so enthusiastic, but most importantly, to our amazing children who worked incredibly hard during Donate a Morning for the greater good.
We have spoken to the children about being ‘agents of change for the community’ and they certainly lived up to it, making us all very proud.
Just to give you a picture of the morning:
Reception: The children went out into the field to take part in Forest School and learn about how to help our local wildlife.
Year 1: Created beautiful paintings and performed a song and we will be sending these electronically to Nightingales Care Home.
Year 2: Created care packages that were beautifully decorated to send to the Salvation Army.
Year 3: Designed sandwiches for the Pantry. The winning sandwich will be made for three weeks at the Pantry!
Year 4: Some children did some gardening with Mrs Falconer at the front of the school (have a look as it looks absolutely brilliant). Others completed beautiful stained glass thank you cards for our local parish heroes.
Year 5: Created a beautiful assortment of thank you posters and messages entitled the ‘Book of Gratitude’ this will be sent to our local Mid District Doctor’s Surgery to say thank you to all of the staff.
Year 6: were tasked with the challenge of creating new designs for Newick Green to send to our local Parish Council. They have worked extremely hard to think about ensuring the park caters for everyone’s needs in their new designs.
I hope you and your child felt that the time spent on building their personal development was worthwhile for them as citizens. We certainly did.
