Wow! What a fantastically red day it has been today!
A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to Comic Relief this year and thank you to the school council for choosing such a successful theme!
Choosing the 'most red' person in every class was really difficult!
We have raised a magnificent total of £820 which will help people all over the world.
It was an exciting day today, our friends from the British Legion came to see us again and we have won the plaque for raising the most money for the Poppy appeal in the Bulwell area.
A final thank you to you all, we raised over £650 in total!
Also a big thank you to our three school council members who spent their break times selling all of the merchandise and Miss Richmond who organised and coordinated all of the selling.

Children In Need - Friday 18th November 2016
Once again the school council have been very busy planning what the school would like to do for Children In Need this year.
They were very aware that many parents and carers have already supported the Poppy Appeal and Operation Christmas Child so they wanted to keep the costs to a minimum.
With this in mind the children decided that they didn't want people to have to buy costumes or extra clothes. The theme this year is 'Spotacular' but the school council decided that any sort of patterned clothing would be a better idea.
Here is a summary of the activities and support opportunities for Children In Need this year.
Wear patterned clothing - please bring a minimum of 50p to come to school out of uniform.
Wrist bands will be on sale from Monday 14th November for £1 each.
Biscuits will be sold on Friday 18th November at morning break time - 1 per child - 30p each.
Pudsey and Blush design competition - please collect your entry sheet for 30p from your class teacher - 30p entry. Mrs Mee has prizes for the winners of each year group.
Loose change - as always we will be collecting any loose change. This year every class has a loose change jar so we can see which class can raise the most!
Thank you all for your continuing support.
The school council have been busy once again. This time the year 6 pupils have been giving up their morning break times to help Miss Richmond to sell items for the Poppy Appeal. Once again the snap bands have proved to be extremely popular. We have been astounded by the support the appeal has received and we already know that we have raised over £500 so far!
Keep checking back for the final figure, we know it's going to be amazing!
A huge thank you to all of the school council members who supported with the Macmillan coffee morning on Friday 30th September 2016.
We raised a fantastic total of £524.57!
We couldn't have done it without all of the wonderful parents and carers who baked or bought cakes for us to sell and to everyone who bought tea and cake on the day.
Also a special thank you to Top Valley Tesco who donated cakes for us to sell.

The school council represent all of the children in the school. They help to make decisions about a variety of topics and issues.
Last year the school council were involved in many fund raising events such as Comic Relief, Children in Need and the MacMillan coffee morning. The Chairs of KS1 and KS2 gave a presentation at the Full Governors meeting about all the things they had been doing and the impact in school.
The school council represent our school and we are looking forward to another successful year with a mature group of children being the pupil voice.
Have a look below at the photos of our new members.
A big thank you to Charlie and Jasmine who addressed the governors on Tuesday night. They presented a PowerPoint showing the governors everything that the school council has been involved in this year. They then answered questions and asked some questions to the governors. I was extremely proud of both of them, especially as I knew how nervous they both were! Well done you two!
A big thank you to the school council for their help and commitment to changing the school dinners. The children have met with the cook to discuss any changes they would like to make and this has been very successful.
The children have been mature and articulate and have made their views clear in a polite and respectful manner.
They have represented all of the children in the school very well.
