On Friday December 11th 2020, the children could choose to wear a Christmas jumper instead of their school sweatshirt or cardigan. In return for this, they were asked to make a donation of £1:00 towards the Save the Children charity, who work to improve the lives of children everywhere. It proved a very popular occasion with a huge range of colourful and festive knitwear livening up the school.
Our Year Six children held our usual small service at Brightwalton Memorial to mark Armistice Day. In this unusual time of Covid-19, we were joined by many villagers, friends and families, all socially distanced in their own bubbles. Reverend Miri Keen led the service, with the children reciting the poem 'In Flanders Fields' and laying a wreath, along with other attendees. Honor and Oliver played the Last Post and Reveille.
We raised £267.32 for the British Legion Poppy Appeal through our sales of poppies and related items in school, beating last year's total.
Last year the children showed their support by wearing what they liked and donating what they wished - we raised £206!
