Ruby's Race for Life

Well done to Ruby who completed her 'Race for Life' run on Sunday, raising money for Cancer Research. She completed the race in just 33 minutes (beating mum) which is an amazing effort. In total, she raised £360.00, which is a truly amazing effort and we, as a school, are extremely proud of her! In order to generate this amount of money, Ruby organised a number of fund raising activities Firstly, she planned and ran a school mufti-day, where £130 was raised, also, Ruby ran a cake sale from her home where she raised £110. Additionally, through her JustGiving page, Ruby managed to raise £120! It takes someone with great belief and motivation to be able to accomplish this, and she really is a credit to our school and its community.


Ruby would like to say 'thank you' to all of the children for supporting her 'mufti-day', "it was really nice to see a sea of pink in the playground in aid of cancer research, the money will make a real difference and I am really proud of how successful it was."


You are a star Ruby!


Thank you to all of you who came to support our wonderful cafes recently. We are all delighted with how well they went. The children thoroughly enjoyed preparing the food and produced some very impressive dishes and cakes! Each class was tasked with costing their menus and ensuring they made a profit, which thankfully they did. The whole week allowed the children to participate a very engaging topic, which combined many aspects of the curriculum including Maths (costings and running the till), Writing (menus, recipes and invitations) and Design and Technology (cooking and food preparation). We will be looking to develop more of this linked learning next year. We will share more details about our curriculum plans in September and intend to present this to all parents on Wednesday 11th September, 7.00pm at Yardley. We will of course send a reminder nearer the time!
