Children in Need 13th November
Children in Need - our highest total yet!
A huge 'well done' and 'thank you' to everyone for helping us to raise an amazing £815 for Children in Need. We had a fun packed day with children and staff dressed as superheroes, lots of delicious cakes being sold and eaten and every class managing to cover their Pudsey in coins. Our House Captains helped to organise all the events, including a very entertaining assembly at the end of the day involving balloons, cake and lots of cream!Your donations were extremely generous and I am really proud of everyone for 'going the extra mile' and raising such a fantastic amount. Well done, Stonebow!
Apple Afternoon 16th October
As part of our progress towards achieving the Food for Life Bronze award, on Friday 16th October we held an Apple Afternoon to celebrate all things apple!
The teachers, learning support assistants and children worked hard to offer lots of exciting activities. There were different apple recipes to try, such as apple crisps, autumn fruit smoothies, apple muffins, apple and cinnamon flapjacks, chocolate dipped apples and fresh fruit salad, all prepared by the children, and enjoyed by everyone. The games were great fun – apple skittles, pin the maggot on the apple, stack the apple challenge, apple bobbing, guess the number of apples in the bucket, apple wordsearches, longest peel competition and apple jenga! There was also apple printing, hat making, colouring and apple decorating for those who like to be crafty!
In the hall, a local environmental group, Loughborough Transition, brought in their apple press so that everyone could taste fresh apple juice from apples grown in Mrs Wetton’s orchard. Local produce was on offer from Hawley Fields Farm in Seagrave who held a stall and also brought in chicks, guinea pigs and rabbits for the children to hold.
A big thank you to Lesley Allenby and Sneha Ninan for making a great job of keeping everyone refreshed with hot and cold drinks, and to Mrs Fines for taking the photos. Also thanks to Morrisons for donating a voucher for £20 towards the cost of ingredients for our apple cooking. And, of course, huge thanks to all the staff, the children, their families and friends for taking part and making it such an enjoyable and successful afternoon!
