Micro-Tyco...The End!!!

Posted by Mrs Wyper on March 5, 2015 at 1:52pm 1 Comment

P5 had a wonderful time and tried to make the most of their last Micro-Tyco week. For the occasion, the children had planned a “Raffle” which, once again, was hugely successful.

After 4 weeks of great fun and team work, P5 has managed to raise over £600. To add to that amount, one very kind and generous P5 mum committed to double our first £250 making our grand total a staggering £850.

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who participated in our activities.…

Micro-Tyco - Week 2

Posted by Mrs Wyper on February 22, 2015 at 1:33pm 1 Comment

Another successful and entrepreneurial week for P5!!!

This week the children organised and ran a lovely and sweet ”How many Sweets in the Jar” challenge, a very well attended “Cake Sale” and a fun “Beat the Goalie” activity.

We are delighted to announce that P5 has now raised over £500. May we take this opportunity to thank everybody who helped us and participated in our fundraising effort, in particular we would like to say a big “Thank You” to the two mums…
