6C Accent Day
The children in 6C have been raising money for Harrison's Fund. Cheryl did a sponsored accent morning where she taught in a variety of different accents from Yorkshire, Scottish and Irish right through to American. So far they have collected over £130 with more to come in :) They have done so well and are determined to get all of the donations in by the middle of next week. Please send in your sponsor money ASAP – thanks.

After school Charity Cake Sale on Friday 7 March, after school at HT. We need as many cakes as possible to sell, so if you are able to provide cakes please bring them to school on Friday 7 March that would be fantastic and would help raise lots of money! Thank you so very much for your support.
