Perse Pelican pupils have bear-based fun to raise money for Children in Need
15 Nov 2019
Perse Pelican pupils enjoyed plenty of bear-based fun to raise funds for BBC Children in Need.
Children dressed up in furry bear outfits, from Pudsey to Paddington, and stretched their paws in a sponsored keep-fit routine, taking part in the streamed Big Morning Move workout with Children in Need’s schools ambassador Joe Wicks aka The Body Coach.
They also enjoyed taking part in a range of other activities including a name the bear competition and having their picture taken with Pudsey.
Reception pupil Henry said he liked “doing the treasure hunt where we had to find stampers”, while another Reception youngster, Simiao, had fun drawing a “nice and colourful” picture of Pudsey.
Year 2 pupil Elizabeth helped run the stall selling Children in Need keyrings, wristbands and Pudsey ears in the library. She said: “It’s fun raising money and helping other children.”
Parents joined in too, donating delicious cakes to a stall – where they sold like hot cakes!
Head Sarah Waddington said: “Children in Need is a wonderful time for children and staff to join together and help raise funds for projects that help disadvantaged youngsters across the country.
“We are very grateful to everyone for their generous donations and sponsorships and the Pelicans had a brilliant day doing their bit for such a terrific cause.”
