Miss Buffery received a letter from Lily, Ellie and Hattie asking if they could organise a bake sale and donate the profits to the RSPCA. The girls have shared their idea with the school
today in praise assembly and they are holding a bake sale on Monday 25th February at breaktime.
If you would like to bake a cake or bring in any cakes to support their great idea the this would go towards raising money for the RSPCA.
The girls are getting in touch with the RSPCA and we hope to have a visit from them soon. Cakes will be 50p so bring your pennies in on the first Monday back. Well done girls on thinking about others and leading this initiative. We are very proud of you.

Soccer Aid Fundraiser I would like to say a humongous ‘thank you’ to everyone for their spectacular effort on our Soccer Aid Day. Your generosity has meant that we have raised £274.68! This is absolutely fantastic and just shows how kind and caring you all are. We were joined by Baggie Bird for part of the morning, which was great fun (no, it was not Mrs Drew!) and Villa have kindly donated some raffle prizes. It’s lovely to see our local teams get involved. Sports Plus also provided us with a giant inflatable goal which was a wonderful success. As you’ll know by now, sadly our results weren’t a prediction of the real World Cup and our winning team of Morocco have already been knocked out. Good luck to everyone still left in our sweepstake...could football really be coming home? I would just like to end by expressing my gratitude to everyone that supported my crazy idea. We pulled it off, had fun and raised money for charity, so it was all worth it in the end! Many thanks, Mrs Turton (June 22nd 2018)
