The children were all invited to enter a baking competition, and then everything we baked was sold at Tea Parties in both the North and South Buildings. Most classes also baked or decorated cakes and biscuits together. The cakes were judged by the North Councillors with a little help from Lisa from the Village Cafe and also the Year 5/6 councillors.
Nursery won the prize for Foundation Stage with a delicious looking tray of ‘Spotty Crispie Cakes.’
The Chaudhari family won the KS1 prize with a fabulous Pudsey cake, decorated with chocolate fingers and smarties.

At lunchtime the school councillors and their friends helped to pick up all the coins and then in the afternoon we began counting and bagging the money. We went through the different coins that needed to go into the money bags and how many of each we would need. We talked about the best ways to do it and then got on with the job! Soon our highest estimation of £100 was clearly going to be wrong! Over £300 in coins were placed on the Penny Path.

2F all dressed up and ready for a brilliant Children in Need day!
Everyone brought their loose change to school and came out to lay their coins along a chalk line across the path which joins the North and South Building. Watch this video and see the amazing line grow and grow until it joined all the doors of both building together, crossing not only the path, but both playgrounds too!
This speeded up video follows the line from the OFfice door all the way across to the Year 1 entrance!

Busily we worked together. Everyone decorated a bun and a Pudsey biscuit and we also made Rice Crispie Cakes and learned how to make marzipan bees. We had great fun together and also spotted some Maths in our baking!

In maths this week we had a go at estimating the length of the path and the amount of money we thought we would raise for Children in Need. At first we had estimations from 15centimetres to 10 miles! So we went outside and used the metre rulers to draw a metre on the path. We saw that 100metres was a much better estimate. We estimated that we would raise some where between £40 and £100 doing the Penny Path. We placed pennies along the metre line we had drawn and counted them – 52p. So we thought our estimate for the money at £40 was low, but that our estimate at £100 might be a bit high! What we hadn’t realised was how far the line would end up going!
