Fun in Nursery for Children in Need

The Nursery children really enjoyed wearing spots for Children in Need day on Friday.  The day before, they had kindly made Mrs Lilley a t-shirt to wear by painting spots all over it.  On Friday morning we made our own Pudsey Bear pictures and spotty pictures with “bingo dabbers”.  We were so pleased to see everyone dressed up.  It was delightful to see the different ideas that people had for making costumes.  Well done, everyone.

We talked to the children about the concept of raising money in order to help those that are in need.  This links to Article 27 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Article 27

You have the right to food, clothing, a safe place to live and to have your basic needs met.  You should not be disadvantaged so that you can’t do many of the things other kids do.

We raised over £200 as a school.  Thank you!  Enjoy the photos!
