Year 5 have carried out the Smile Challenge in the last week. This involves using a small amount of money to put a smile on people's faces.
5/1 decided to focus on local homeless people and other needy people in our community.
They created small parcels of gifts which they delivered to local homeless people today. They also took donations to Southport Soup Kitchen so that local families can be helped.
What a brilliant thing to do - you have certainly helped some people to smile this Christmas.
5.2 made and sold items for their own individual charities - they raised nearly £70 and the charities included Ghana, RSPCA, Cancer Research and Children in Need. They also arranged a gift to make Rod, our caretaker smile - and his dog! It was a hamper with gifts including Christmas dog toys, a Poinsettia plant and a card signed by the children.
