Children in Need Day
Thank you to everyone who came to school dressed in pyjamas, onesies or something spotty!! It was lovely to see so many people dressed up – and to be joined by lots of teddies 
Also a huge thank you to all the donations for the café – your support for these events is really appreciated. The café made an amazing £165.61 while we collected £262.94 in donations from the children, giving a total of £428.55. This will be split equally between Children in Need and Millie’s Trust.
