“The children at Polkadot Alcester had a very busy time fundraising for Children in Need this year! They completed lots of laps for their sponsored cycle, racking up a grand total of 13 miles between all of the rooms – even the Baby Dots had a go at a small course set up in their garden (with support from their practitioners!). Well done to Lee, who had the closest guess with 16 miles and won the prize for ‘Guess the Distance’!
Throughout the second half of the week we held the Great Polkadot Bake Off. Staff, parents and children sampled the bakes for a small donation and completed a scorecard giving each bake a rating out of 15. The winner of the Bake Off was Charlotte with her Rainbow Sprinkle Tiffin, which she made with her mum Laura, well done to you both!
In the staff room, we held a Children in Need Duck race sweepstake – which Hayley L was lucky enough to win with her choice – Disco Duck! We also had a pyjama day and all wore pyjamas to nursery- it was a very comfy day!
Parents and children have since been busy collecting their sponsorship and returning it to nursery. The grand total raised from all of our fun activities so far is a fabulous £748.33! A huge thank you to all of the staff, parents and especially the children who worked really hard on their Sponsored Cycle all week!”
