Pupils

 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

 

£107.45

 

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

 

Haris Ali in 4EW grew his £1.50 by making vegetable burgers. He spent his £1.50 on buying the vegetables and burger buns.

They chopped all of vegetables, then they cooked the burgers. Mrs Ali took them into the school office to sell them to the staff of All Saints School. The staff told Haris that they were absolutely scrumptious.

 

 

 

Andrew Cullen from 3LS made cookies and sold them two for £1.00 and loom bands two for £1.00.

Andrew has £14.30 and is hoping to grow it to £15.00. He spent his money on loom bands and with the money he made from that, he brought cookie mixture. Andrew sold them to family and relatives, he wants to raise £15.00. Andrew thinks this is a good idea because it will help poor people.

 

Local boy James Stone from 6KO has had the idea to grow his £1.50 by selling some incredible plant pots, with plants inside! He made the pots by priming and spray painting tin cans, and they were fantastic! He decided to plant some bulbs in them, to add to the excitement! When the plant pots were finally finished, James’s Uncle’s 60th birthday party was coming up. He decided to take his pots to the party, as there would be lots of people there. He managed to raise a whopping £21.00 to give to the school! He is going to try to grow it even more, making it even more likely that All Saints Junior School will be able to afford an African roundhouse.

 

Isabel Walten from 6SC has been selling sweet cups, brownies, truffles and exciting stuff on eBay. So far she has made an incredible amount - £50!

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 .......
