We have decided to join millions of other schools around the world to raise money to help disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
Every year in November, Children in Need has an appealing night where they run an evening full of entertainment, with celebrities usually making fools of themselves to help raise money.
This year at St Christopher’s, we have all decided to come dressed as our favourite celebrity!
What does Pudsey stand for?
Pudsey is a market town in West Yorkshire, England. Pudsey has given its name to “Pudsey Bear”, the mascot of the BBC’s annual fundraising marathon Children in Need. It also lends its name to the local parliamentary constituency of Pudsey, of which it is a part.
In Nursery and Reception, we decided to spend each afternoon this week making Pudsey related arts and crafts such as Pudsey bears, paws and all things yellow! During storytime, we listened to ‘Pudsey’s Great Fundraiser’ and talked about why Pudsey wore an eye bandage with spots. We had a go at designing our own bandana’s for Pudsey to wear and decided to post them off to the children who stay in a hospital called ‘The Great Ormond Street’. We hope to hear back from them!
