Children in Need

Colsterworth once again put the fun into fundraising for Children in Need by dressing in our comfiest clothes (our pajamas)! Student Council had decided that snuggly was the way forward and it allowed some of us to wear Pudsey onsies and everyone joined in to raise a fantastic £118.10. The Student Council had set a target of £100 so were delighted that we reached this sum with generous donations.

In each class bubble the children decided what they would like to do that was active; some began by watching Joe Wicks complete his 24 hour marathon exercise challenge; some of us joined the Strictly stars with a dance routine workshop. We loved joining in!  We then spent time thinking about what Children in Need did for children around the country and at this difficult time really understood the importance of pulling together as a nation community.

Children in Need supports the core values that we believe in as a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. Articles 7 and 9 are about supporting children to live with their family and Children in Need supports families in order to keep them together. Article 23 states that children with disabilities should be cared for and enabled to reach their full potential. Article 6 tells us that all children have the right to be the best that they can be. Our children love to be agents of change, raising money to support Children in Need, in the hope that this will enable other, less fortunate children to access their rights as well.

Well done to everyone for taking part. Thank you.
