Pudsey Bear came to visit us in school for a special Collective Worship. During the day we learnt all about the work of Children In Need and the people it helps.
At Stanley St Peters Church of England Primary School, the Year 6 children were given the opportunity to choose a charity to raise funds for Christmas. The children, after much deliberation, decided to select St Catherine's Food Bank (Wakefield). The children wrote a letter to the head teacher outlining the target of raising 500 items! The children then held an assembly to ask the rest of the school to help them reach the target of 500. Last Friday, the children soon realised they had smashed their target. The entire school had supported this idea and the children collected 751 items in total. The school are exceptionally proud of the children - they have demonstrated true festive spirit.
