The theme of this year`s Children in Need was …….spots!
The School Council asked everyone to raise money for Children in Need by coming in spotty fancy dress. Each class also organised an extremely spotty game . Altogether we raised a fantastic £500!
Miss Towndrow asked the School Council to explain to Key Stage 2 all about Magna Carta and how important a date it is in British History. We decided to put on a show.
King John was a very bad man indeed and deserved all the boos and hisses that he got from the audience. He was always demanding more taxes from the people of England .In the photos you can see his soldiers dragging off a nobleman and his family to throw them into the Tower of London and leave them to starve to death. We explained to the audience how the rest of his noblemen had had enough of this kind of treatment . In 1215, they forced King John to sign a document giving the people more rights- the charter we know today as the Magna Carta.

Bake – Off visits Barlborough
The School Council had a bake sale in the school hall and many of the children brought in cakes to sell. It was just like the Great British Bake –Off! There were Pudsey biscuits, jam tarts, chocolate chip muffins, Smartie cakes and a magnificent Pudsey Bear cake.
By the time our parents came to buy some, we had eaten the lot as they were all so delicious. We`d like to say thank you to all of you for baking so many scrumptious treats.
Friday 13 November
Guess the Film Character
Well -they all turned up to celebrate the last day of our fund raising events- everyone from Jessie in Toy Story , Catwoman, The Boy in a Dress and a Man in Black, to a Pirate of the Caribbean and Minions searching around the school for a master to serve! The week finished with a celebration assembly at which we announced that we had raised the fantastic total of £570!
Thanks once again to everyone whose contributions of time and money made all of this possible. We can be sure that the money raised will go to some very worthwhile causes.
Just before half term, the School Council took assembly to tell the whole school what we will be doing to raise money for Children in Need on November 13th. We will be dressing up as TV and film characters and having a mammoth bake sale.
Each class will be planning their own fund raising activity as well. We hope to raise loads of money!
