Monster Sponsored Bounce for Nursery
Life has it's ups and downs but at school this week it has had more than its usual share.
The children have all been preparing for a 'monster' sponsored bounce to raise funds for Nursery.
In September the school is improving the Nursery and is aiming for a refit of furniture both inside and outside. To do this the children have been trying to raise a 'monster' sum of money.
Every child in the school has been collecting sponsors and has been asked to bounce for one minute - collecting pennies for every bounce! We are delighted to thank The Deer Shed Festival for supporting our event - they have offered family tickets to this year's festival - which has the theme 'monsters'. These tickets will be given to the name drawn out of the hat from the class which has collected most money. All monies are due in on Monday 2nd July.
The Deer Shed is very much a family friendly festival, with childrens events an integral part of the day's programme with many of the artists performing and running workshops that the whole family can enjoy.
This year the monster theme is taken quite literally and are super sizing on offer. Customised swing balls made out of heavy-duty steel, giant sea monster creations which will be built by kids and then floated on the lake, BIG paintball art guns and over 40 exotic animals to meet on the Sunday (snakes, spiders, lizards, massive toads and some furry things).
The festival team will also be scouting for human guinea pigs to take part in Dr Frankenstein's DIY Monster Project from Eureka! The National Children's Museum.
All in addition to the regulars of organised sports, arts sessions, modelling workshops and play areas.
