To help our children develop their understanding of other cultures, we will be including a short whole school focus on Chinese New Year at the beginning of February. To make this experience even more exciting, we’d like to try and let the whole school prepare food typically eaten during this celebration. Obviously the school budget doesn’t stretch to the ingredients required to allow a school of 460 pupils to cook in the same week but we think that with a 50p voluntary donation from each family, we could make this happen! I must stress that this would be a voluntary contribution and I don’t want any family to feel obliged but………….it would be great if we could collect any more 50 pence pieces tomorrow morning (Friday, 29th January) and then staff can plan the curriculum for this event. Many thanks.
