On Friday 18 December 2015, staff and pupils pulled out all the wool, sorry stops, and wore their best festive knits to raise money for Save the Children. It was a fantastic day linked with a range of festive activities. Students completed a range of craft tasks during this day making hand wreaths for their classroom door. They drew the outline of their hand onto coloured card and wrote a reflection of their achievements and challenges of 2015. Students also made a collective paper chain incorporating a promise or target for 2016. Individual links joined together as a year group and were then added to our Christmas tree in Fellside Hall. Students were also asked to consider the true meaning of Christmas in their activity.


Post cards were designed by 4 Key Stage 3 pupils and given as gifts to all students along with a candy cane with an opportunity to learn about its origin; thank you to Amy, Elle, Tom and Phoebe. I hope these arrived safely at home and you all have had a fantastic Christmas. May we take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year.
