Red Nose Day
Last Friday, Perseid School came together for our annual Red Nose Day celebration.
At Lower School, pupils enjoyed a class cinema and came to school in red clothing, or dressed as superheroes, whilst Upper School also wore red, and in their theme of'Sharing a Smile', pupils enjoyed a morning of activities based on things that make us smile.
Lower School pupils engaged in an array of exciting and thoughtful activities, including sensory activities and painting.
The day at Upper School began with a virtual hello and to talk about the day, and the importance of fundraising for Red Nose Day. Following this, pupils started their art project in class groups. Each class used a canvas and photos of the pupils smiling, using colours that make us smile, toys or resources that make us smile to paint with, and worked together to create 9 unique pieces of work to represent ‘sharing a smile’. These will be displayed in Upper School.
Later that morning, the pupils started to rehearse what they wanted to show for their talent show. No matter what their skills or talents were, we wanted to see it. The aim was to make their school smile and they definitely did that! We had a wonderful inspirational speech from our Head Pupil, a lovely poem about smiling, a couple of jokes (“Where do you take a sick horse?” “To horsepital”). Another pupil did a football dance routine, whilst other pupils showed off their football skills, many pupils took part in the baking activity and made tasty fun bars to enjoy and we also saw lots of singing and dancing.
We are thrilled to share that our school raised £368 for Comic Relief and would like to say a special thank you to our school community for their unwavering support and generosity.
