Super Sandwiches - Year 3 real project
On Thursday, Year 3 sold their healthy homemade sandwiches to members of the public at Ripon Market for their REAL project. This was the culmination of weeks of research, design and creativity. Not only did they produce some mouth-watering sandwiches, they also raised over £50 to donate to Blue Cross, for whom they have been courageous advocates for all year.
Terrific t-Shirts real project - Year 5
This week, Year 5 hand printed t-shirt designs as a charity fundraiser. They incorporated images that show how we all need to care and think about the environment. The class are courageous advocates for the environment. Initially, they drew their designs before transferring them to polystyrene printing blocks. They then transferred these designs to their t-shirts. To add to the selling experience, the children created their own ‘market style’ signs to ask for a minimum donation.
Mr. Gold and Mrs. Bartlett-Young helped the children to set up the stall. They really enjoyed the selling experience and sold out of all of the t-shirts. Some of the children seem to have the ability to persuade people to buy! Thank you for everyone who supported Year 5!
Penpal visit from St Peter's
Year 5 hosted the return of their ‘Pen Pals’ from St. Peter’s School, Leeds on Thursday. It was wonderful to see them again and they thoroughly enjoyed their time with them. They loved playing on the field and were keen to play sport, develop their artistic skills and even accompany us to the market.
The children played ‘Treasure’, one of their favourite cricket style games; drew combined Totem Poles with each other and had ice-lollies to finish their time together. A wonderful experience for all involved.
