Lots of Jokes and Lots of Red for Comic Relief!
Red Nose Day rolled around once more this week, and, as always, Bosbury School pupils were more than keen to don their red non-uniform on a misty Friday morning, complete with trademark funny red noses and hilarious jokes!
As the murkiness cleared and the sun finally decided to come out to play, the children enjoyed a day full of fun and laughter, with some lovely peaceful and calm play being seen in particular on the Key Stage 1 playground as one young lady from Class 5 even brought in a water bottle of super-sized proportions! We of course always recommend drinking plenty of water throughout the day, although perhaps not this much...!
There was plenty to do in the afternoon as the lovely sunshine continued, with Class 2 ending a brilliant Science Week by finishing tidying the raised beds in the school greenhouse, starting their runner bean investigation, and sitting under the blue skies making their own seed bombs!
Meanwhile, Class 4 also made the most of the pleasant weather that afternoon by making their own seed bombs, which will hopefully grow into beautiful flowers for the summer when they are planted.
Well done to all of our kind pupils for helping to support this worthy cause with their donations on the day. Those who watched the annual telethon on BBC One that night, hosted by Comic Relief co-founder Sir Lenny Henry, Top Gear and Question of Sport's Paddy McGuinness, Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon and former Doctor Who David Tennant, will know that a staggering £42.8 MILLION was raised to help disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the UK and further afield, meaning that the grand total raised so far by the charity since it was formed in 1985 as a response to the famine in Ethiopia is a quite astonishing £1.5 BILLION! Wow!
