In the morning we made cakes, table decorations, bunting and even a three tiered wedding cake made from some paint and boxes, it was amazing!

Last week we had two important visitors to St Giles, two sheep named Wendy & Winnie.  Most of our pupils came out to meet them and learnt about how to groom and care for sheep.  They were very friendly and everyone enjoyed meeting them.

Sport Relief is a biennial charity event from Comic Relief to raise money to help vulnerable people in both the UK and the world’s poorest countries. Our pupils and staff helped support this event by wearing sports clothing for a £1 donation towards the charity and there were lots of  sports activities throughout the day. We raised £137!
