At Christmas, the Year 1 children donated toys to send to Syrian children who are refugees.
The children had been learning that Christmas is not all about themselves and how much they would get, but about thinking of others and sharing. They were especially concerned, because the Syrian child-refugees have no homes anymore, that Santa would not be able to find them to give them presents. We found out that Oxfam have a Syria Crisis Appeal and so we took all the toys to them to go to Syria - four big boxes!
The children also raised £10.00 by bringing in some pocket money to put in one of teachers special money boxes, this money was donated to the Unicef appeal for Syrian children.
We are very proud of how generous the children have been and hope that we can keep collecting money throughout the year to give to those less fortunate than ourselves.
Here are some of our Year 1 children with a few of the toys.
