Today was our mothering Sunday Sales Event and our children had lots to choose from in the end thanks to some very generous families who bought in extra items. The photos of the hall before the sale shows how much we had and the quality of gifts was magnificent - a huge thank you. The children very much enjoyed browsing and were really thinking about what their mum or nan would like. They have all been beautifully wrapped thanks to our small group of volunteers who came in to assist.
So many families have said what a lovely idea this is and that it is great that we are teaching our children that it is important to say a little thank you to our loved ones. If your child has forgotten to bring in their £1 today, we will have one more opportunity for children to purchase tomorrow morning and although we will not have our volunteers in school to help wrap, I['m sure there will be opportunity for LSAs to help out if numbers are small.
The money raised for this project will as you know go to our outdoor fund. During the Spring 2 term, we are having a lockable outdoor large sand pit created for our playground and we are also purchasing a range of outdoor musical instruments to be placed within the outer edge of the woodland for the children to play during playtime and during curriculum time. I am meeting with The Friends of Great Binfields shortly to discuss a proposal and together we will present our plans to you.
So a huge thank you to all of you who are assisting with our fundraising drive. The children really will benefit.
