Year 3 Advocates for the Blue Cross
Year 3 have raised over £150 by selling Blue Cross merchandise in school. This week, they handed over their collection to Ollie, the Assistant Manager of the Ripon shop, who was thrilled at the children's fundraising efforts.
Apart from raising money to help such a worthwhile charity, the children's courageous advocacy has also raised awareness of the work Blue Cross do to support pet owners. We have heard how parents who attended our worship earlier this term, have been able to direct pet owners in need to get some support from the Blue Cross charity.
Year 3 will continue their fundraising by completing a sponsored dog walk later this month.
Phoebe in Reception was recognised for amazing enthusiasm and the way she is flourishing in all her learning. Year 6 pupils received their award for helping others to flourish by volunteering at Ripon Library. The Ambassadors felt that Mrs Pitt and Mrs McIlmurray deserved recognition for how they have helped Year 3 to raise money for the Blue Cross.
Red Nose Day - Friday 17th March 2023
Can we ask that children do not wear jewellery, or decorations in their hair. Headbands are allowed but should be appropriate for a school context.
For PE lessons can parents please ensure that children have their black shorts and plain white T-shirts for indoor lessons.
Year 5 and Year 6 attend a workshop at Bethel Church by Emery and Ethan
On Monday, Year 5 and 6 went to Bethel Church where we did a workshop to learn about what Jesus did whilst he was on Earth. We also listened to stories about Jesus such as the paralysed man, the resurrection and when he got baptised.
We went because we needed to learn about Jesus' life and to hear about different parables. It was a really fun afternoon and we learnt about the Bible and how many books are in it. It was a good experience to learn about Christ.
