On Friday 24th March 2017, Someries Infant and Nursery School held a special non-uniform day to raise money for Comic Relief. Altogether we raised £230.00!
Age Concern Luton helps more than 4000 older people every year. As Luton’s largest charity working with older people, they have been helping elderly people and their carers get the services they need, make their voices heard and contribute to our local community for over twenty years.
Due to the success of our Man on the Moon project last year, we continued our work with Age Concern Luton once again this Christmas to help us continue our work to raise awareness of our values within our local community.
We hosted a special event throughout the morning of Thursday 15th December 2016 with Age Concern Luton where some of their service users from our local community joined us for some Christmas craft workshops with our pupils. Pupils in Year Two also performed some of the songs from their Christmas performance to our visitors.
All pupils attended as special Values Assembly in school where we watched a video together and we shared with them the focus of our special project. We agreed that the value we would focus on throughout the project is ‘Friendship’. They were very excited!
I am sure you will agree that this was a fantastic opportunity for us to work together to support members of our local community this Christmas.
Thanks to the generosity of our school community, our Age Concern Christmas project raised an impressive £333.83 which will go some way towards keeping older lonely people connected with society.
Our 2016-2017 School Parliament was very fortunate to be invited to visit Parliament on Tuesday 15th November 2016.
As part of their visit, they learned about Chance the dog, mascot of the fire brigade, and the story of the night in 1834 when the Palace of Westminster was destroyed by fire.
They discovered who won the competition to design and rebuild the new Houses of Parliament and received a special tour of the Houses of Parliament.
They also created their own Parliament tile designs which are now displayed in school.
