At the end of last term, we took part in sponsored event to raise funds for Spencer Contact. This charity collects donated items of furniture and repairs, cleans and restores them so they can then be distributed and delivered to families in need within and around Northampton. Representatives from the charity came in to explain this to the children during an assembly in which we launched the sponsorship event with theme: ‘I am going to sleep on the floor so no one else has to’. Each child then sought sponsorship for sleeping on the floor on the night of Friday October 18th. We were delighted with how many children took part and to have supported a charity that makes a difference in our own locality and raised an incredible £1176! Thank you to everyone who took part and to those who sponsored the children so generously.
You will also see that we have re-created the amazing poppy display outside the school. We have once again received a lot of positive feedback. Each child has ‘planted’ a poppy and we have been learning about their significance and the importance of Remembrance. We are planning to observe a minute’s silence on Monday 11th November at 11am.
