Who enjoyed raft building at Croft Farm?
There's something about Mary
Today actor Simon Firth from Gripping Yarns visited Year 5 to tell us the story of Tom and the Trolls, a story to make us think about friendships and bullying in our lives. After Tom accidentally spoiled the game they were playing, the trolls isolated and teased Tom until he received help from an unexpected source that helped him turn things around.
Well done to everyone who completed the 6km Fun Run this afternoon. We hope to raise lots of money for Comic Relief. Here’s a picture of Amelia’s flamingos Larry and Barry recuperating in Mounts after the race:

Hopefully today has given everyone lots to think about, particularly similarities and differences between life in Berkhamsted and life in a town like Makeni in Sierra Leone.
Remember how for us the Paper Bag Game is just a ‘game’, but for some people they have to take on repetitive, low-paid jobs just to survive. Nobody in Bridgewater said they had to walk some distance to the nearest tap.
Here are some bags Amelia made at lunchtime, using the techniques we learnt in the Paper Bag game. She can fit a bag inside a bag, inside another bag, inside a bag, etc. Mr Heritage has some dolls from Ukraine just like that!

Well done to everyone involved in today’s cake and book sale. A grand total of £85.60 was raised for charity. Thanks to Georgia, Phoebe and Penny for coming up with the original idea – the books turned out to be a very successful idea.
