Before half term, I promised an update on Ayansh’s (Year 1) progress with his fundraising reading mission. As you will recall, he challenged himself to read 10 books in 10 days. Well, I am delighted to announce that so far, he has raised a staggering amount of money for “NHS charities Together” and “Room to Read” – as I write, a total of £1,290.00 and, together with gift aid, this raises the amount to £1,448.75. Many congratulations, Ayansh – a sterling effort!
I am also very pleased to let you know that Anne (Kindergarten) received a letter and certificate from the Mayor of Spelthorne for being a Superhero Litter Picker – what a great effort.
Our assembly theme for the next few weeks is the word ‘adversity’ which we will be exploring in different ways to get to grips with its meaning. It makes me very proud to know the children here are always very keen to help out and support those in need.
With this in mind, next Friday (13 November) our School Councilors will be encouraging us all to don something spotty in support of Children in Need – do look out for their letter!
