Our Educational Visit to The centre for Wildlife Gardening

We began our topic ‘Mother Earth’ with a visit to the Centre for Wildlife Gardening in Peckham.

Sylvia welcomed us to the centre and asked us what living                                                  things we had seen .P1010390P1010391P1010392

The Bring and Buy Sale

On Friday we had a WILD Bring and Buy Sale at Edmund Waller School, to raise money for the famine in East Africa.  It was so popular, the weather was lovely and the classes provided so much to sell!

There were toys, books and we are pretty sure we saw a keyboard, some paintings and a model boat. There was one table for each year group and they were all run by our School Councillors (the teachers, teaching assistants and some of our classmates helped us).  They were set up so everyone could see everything and nothing was left behind.  Customers chose a fair price to pay for each item.  We collected so much money we are sure the Red Cross people will be happy with our donation!

Remember if you did not buy anything on the day, you can always go on the internet with your parents and donate your own money to help buy starving children food to eat.

Today we counted the money we raised from the Bring and Buy Sale. It took a long time!

was a bit like the pile on our table.  There was also £160 worth of notes! Over all we raised £373.19 and it was all because of the wonderful children and parents in our school.  Well done Edmund Waller!
