Week Commencing Monday 10 October 2016
As part of our work in RE and PSHCE, we will be talking about Harvest festivals and traditions, and linking this to our month’s value of sharing and helping those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Following the tremendous success that we had last year, we would again like to make a collection of food items for charity. Our chosen charity this year is again Stopsley Baptist Church Food Works, which operates as an outreach ministry to those in need in our community.
We would be grateful for any food donations that you feel able to make to this worthy cause. We would request that items be non-perishable, i.e. tinned, packet or dried items, rather than fresh fruit or vegetables. These items will be put into our Harvest display in the hall until the following week, when they will then be transported to Stopsley Baptist Church.
Starting on Monday 10 October 2016, items can be sent in with your child before school (between 8.45 and 8.55am) on any morning that you choose, and you may accompany your child to the hall to see the developing display and add your donation.
Last year we raised money during the Autumn term for the charity ‘Farm Africa’ and the response was amazing.
We are going to continue to support them this year by doing a ‘Welly Walk’.
We would like you to do this sponsored walk at home as a family. Recording where you went and sending in a photo of your children in their wellies on their walk. You can walk locally, for example around Stopsley Park or go further afield such as Stockwood Park or Wardown Park. You could go out to the beautiful countryside surrounding Luton such as the Dunstable Downs or Barton Hills.
Let us know what you do. There will be token rewards for all children who bring in photos and sponsor money for such a good cause. Most importantly, have fun!
We would like to thank you in advance for your help and support.
