Growing Money!


We have given every pupil £1.50 and challenged them to use their talents, gifts and entrepreneurial skills to grow it. The money raised will go towards celebrating our 150th anniversay.


So far we have raised




What have you done with your £1.50!


Watch this space to find out what amazing ideas we've had.



George Wright in 6KO is hoping to make £30 by making raspberry jam! He picked raspberries at a ‘Pick Your Own’ fruit farm and bought some jam sugar. George’s mum found a jam recipe?????/help him make 12 jars of delicious fruit jam. He has sold 3 jars at £2.50 each and plans to sell the rest to relatives and neighbours.


Ollie Brooksby in 6MM is planning on setting up a car wash at his house this weekend. He will spend the £1.50 on car shampoo and wax and borrow a bucket and sponge from his dad. He’ll ask his neighbours if they’d like their car washed and charge them depending on how big their car is. Ollie said he’ll explain to his neighbours why he’s doing it and hopefully they’ll donate some money as it is a good cause.


Lily-Rai Snape in 6SC has decided to spend her £1.50 on ingredients for a big cake. She’ll slice it up and sell it to relatives and friends. Then, with some of the profits, she’ll make another cake and sell that too! She’s hoping to make £20.


Jack Holland from 6MM has grown his money to £4.50 so far by making fairy cakes. He spent the money on ingredients and plans to make more. His mum bought one and said it tasted delicious! Jack’s target is to make £15



 Teddies for The Gambia

Each year some teachers visit The Soma School in The Gambia. We have been linked with them for over 14 years and we have learnt so much from them.

Last year we took 110 knitted teddies with us, each one attached to a letter from a year 3 pupil. They were given to Soma school pupils and they wrote a letter back to our children about themselves. It worked so well we have decided to do it again this year.

Janet, the lady that knitted many of last years teddies and 85 of this years teddies, visited Year 3 to show them how she knits them. It takes her nearly 4 hours to make one teddy. Here are some of last years teddies and some thank you cards from 3HS to Janet.

  Peace One Day

You may already know that Peace One Day led the initiative to establish the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence, unanimously adopted by United Nations member states as 21 September – Peace Day. You may also know that they then proved that the day could work in areas of conflict, most notably in Afghanistan, where Peace Day agreements have led to the vaccination against polio of 4.5 million children in recent years.

These successes and many others led Jeremy to launch the Global Truce 2012 campaign: the largest global reduction of violence, and the largest ever gathering of individuals in the name of peace on one day – Peace Day 21 September 2012.

At All Saints we thought about peace worldwide and in our own lives, and what we could do to help. We wrote prayers and promises, just a small contribution but if everyone did it .......
