Children in Need November 2015

Pupils and staff at Mary Rose were true super heroes in order to raise nearly £800 for Children in Need. Everyone dressed as super heroes for the day and paid £1 towards the good cause.

Tremendous efforts from Pioneer and Albert Annexe included a sponsored work out in the gym to see how many miles they could travel, baking biscuits and decorating them and lastly guessing games for example how many sweets are in the jar (Chosen correctly by Jordan Barber- he chose and wrote his numbers independently!). All students took sponsor forms home for parents earlier in the week, there was a great response from these and also students donated their small change.

Classes in Secondary and 6th form had a very busy week in the run up to Children in Need preparing and making an array of sweet and savoury items to sell on the day. There was a variety of brightly coloured cupcakes, muffins, Pudsey Bear biscuits and the staff favourite bread pudding! There was a long queue on the day of pupils and staff and 6thform were kept very busy selling multiple items. The pupils raised a grand total of £165!. A great effort. Well done.

During assembly all got to ‘strut their stuff’ at the super hero disco and pupils super hero powers were truly put to the test during the super hero challenges which included finding pebbles covered in cold spaghetti and beans, and eating dry crackers without drinking and doughnuts without using their hands. Certificates were awarded for the best costume in each key stage.

Excellent work by all! Mary Rose Academy was full of real superheroes who were excited to spend their own money to help someone else.
