Today we are once again joining the nation to celebrate one of our favourite charity events - Children in Need.
This is another one that is so close to our hearts because it involves children!
We have dressed in spotty clothes, Pudsey clothes and bright clothes and made donations to the charity for this year’s theme - Be Spotacular.
We have had lots of exciting activities going on around school including sensory activities available in the Blackburn Hall, including play dough Pudsey, collage activities, biscuit icing and the photo booth.
In the corridors on both sides of the school there was a spotty trail that began at the bottom of both ends of the school and lead to Pudsey who was hiding somewhere at the end of both corridors for all pupils to find. Amongst the spots on the trail there were opportunities for counting and subtracting for the pupils who are able.
For VI pupils our talented teacher Rebecca had put together a sensory board for counting the spots on your way down the corridor!
The main man himself, Pudsey, visited and made his way around school to visit everybody and spread some cheer this afternoon from lunchtime - children were absolutely delighted to see him, shake hands, pose for photos and have hugs.
As well as a donation for ‘dressing down’, we have sold raffle tickets for a chocolate hamper. We have drawn the tickets for our chocolate raffle, first prize was Kim G, Second prize was Phillipa and third prize was Francesca. Thank you to everyone who took part.
Our friends at the Blackburn ASDA kindly donated a small quantity of Children in Need pens, pencils, keyrings and badges which we have also sold.
We have all had an absolutely brilliant day and hopefully we’ve raised lots of money for Children in Need.
Thanks very much to everyone but especially teachers Rebecca and Liz who organised and lead all of the events and to Pudsey of course!
If you haven’t donated, there is still time - you can do this here via our special Children in Need Just Giving page.
Enjoy the show tonight on BBC1.
