Many of us are regular watchers of Countryfile and, when we saw them advertise their ‘Countryfile Ramble’ in aid of Children in Need, the eco-committee thought it would be great to get involved!

The pupils were raring to go on Monday afternoon! We all had our Children in Need MDJS flags. The Year 6 boys had even dressed up! Wren was joining us, along with two other members of staff and we set off to work our way around Hartshill Hayes, a great woodland resource right on the school’s doorstep.


We took a couple of Pudsey bears too and the children chose where to take photos of them!


We had a fantastic afternoon, walking for an hour and a half…. and for about 7km. The pupils were absolutely fantastic! Full of enthusiasm and not a single moan, despite some large hills!


It was an absolute pleasure to take this group of pupils out for the afternoon and we all had such a lovely time exploring our local green space. We finally arrived back to the gate, to head back to school in time for the end of the school day.



Within a week, we had all collected our sponsor money in and this group of amazing children managed to raise MORE THAN £300!!!! A SUPERB effort and we had such a lovely afternoon! An extra special well done to Jack who raised the most money through sponsorship. He won this Animals of the UK  book!screen-shot-2016-10-30-at-21-25-33
