Last week, Merton took part in Children in Need 2020 by coming to school in non-uniform and covered in Pudsey Bear spots! The school was full of bright colours and smiling faces.
Due to current restrictions, we unfortunately cannot celebrate and run charity days as we normally would, however each year group will have individual input on different charities throughout the year. Children in Need was Y6's charity day so they organised an extra activity to raise money. Miss Fear kindly offered herself to take part in 'pelting Pudsey,' whereby the children took much enjoyment in throwing wet sponges at her out on the playground in exchange for extra donations. No Pudsey Bear's were harmed in this activity and it was so lovely to see everyone laughing and working together as a team to raise money.
As a school, we raised a fantastic £296!
Well done Merton!
