Champions for Change 


Back in February you were all members of a 'political' party. After weeks of hard fought campaigning and emotive speeches, election day arrived. After counting up the votes from the whole school,'Tango Tigers' were victorious!


Their campaign focused around raising money to buy benches for the school playground. With the help of their coalition party 'The Bears' and with everyone else in year 6 coming together to join one party, they  planned to do this by selling healthy snacks during break time. 


The plans to put all this in action would have been taking place during the summer term this year, as well all know, that didn't happen! However...


We still want you to be able to deliver on your promise to the school! 


In two weeks time, we will be selling items that you have made in order to raise money for the benches. The children who have been in school began this last week and as a group decided to make and sell the following items: 

  • Friendship bracelets
  • Pom poms
  • Decorated and potted sunflower seeds
  • Key rings
  • Bookmarks


We would like you to help with the fundraising effort and make one (or more than one!) of the items above to contribute to the selling effort. The pictures below show you an idea of what we have made in school so far. 

‘Children are captivated by their learning’, ‘The well-being of pupils is at the heart of the school’, ‘School is a calm place - pupils are polite, courteous and well-mannered’
