A HUGE thank you to all pupils and adults who contributed to our Sport Relief week through donations, cakes, time and effort! I am delighted to say that our total amount raised for this brilliant cause (not yet taking into account our funds from selling the official wristbands) is £620.06!
Our children have had a fantastic fun and sports-filled week. It has been a pleasure to see such smiley faces out on the yard during our lunchtime challenges and during their classroom activities.
Well done and thank you again.
Sport Relief 2018! Monday 19th March-Friday 23rd March
Here at Granby, our pupils are always fantastic at raising money for charitable causes and we are hoping that Sport Relief this year is no different!
Below is an outline of our suggested activities for this week and we are hoping that classes will get fully involved in the 'Daley' challenges and lunchtime activities!
We will also be holding a cake sale on Thursday (adults welcome in our hall from 10:15-11:15am!) and a non-uniform day on Friday. Please donate £1 if you would like to come dressed as your favourite sports star or in sportswear!
MILE MONDAY- Y3/4 and Y5/6 classes will go over to the Abbotsford field for a short time in the morning to complete this challenge. Times will be confirmed via text the week before. If adults at home would like to meet us there and run with us, you are more than welcome! Due to the poor weather, this was unfortunately cancelled. However, we are hoping classes will pull their mile in during lesson time later in the week!
SKIP-A-THON TUESDAY-challenges with our Sports Ambassadors at lunch, e.g. number of pretzels in 60 seconds! (As taught by Dan the Skipping Man!)
DODGEBALL WEDNESDAY-intra class/intra year group mini matches!
BOOGIE THURSDAY-popular routines will be played at lunchtime alongside songs from the charts, finishing with the Sport Relief dance! Get practicing!
