As a school, we have been set the challenge by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) to raise £400 (over the school year) for equipment for the sensory room, currently being built at The Nook, in Framingham Earl.
Poringland Primary School has appointed a fundraising team of 7 responsible Y6s who will lead fundraising efforts, along with Mrs Hayes. On Monday 12th November, EACH staff spoke to the children in assembly,  introducing The Nook and the work they hope to do there. We feel that it is important to make links with this local charity.
On Monday 17th January, 15 of the Choir went carol singing in Poringland, raising £145.37 for EACH.

Penny Mile

On Tuesday 8 January, the EACH fundraising team and Mrs Hayes organised a Penny Mile.  Each class brought in their spare change and set out lines of coins on the Junior Playground.
The total distance of all lines was 641.94m (not a mile but about 67 double decker lengths!)
3rd distance: Barnby Class 62m
2nd distance: Barton Class 68m
Winning distance: Malthouse Class 187m
The final total raised will be announced once all the change has been counted!

Year 6 Fundraising Concert

In May, a fundraising concert was held by the Year 6 pupils of Poringland Primary School to raise money for The Nook. The evening was one to be remembered, although there was a shortage of light at the beginning due to a power cut. Luckily, the electricity came on in time to welcome the fabulous Year 4 Recorder Group. They played a short selection of pieces before we were joined by the Carton Colville Handbell Ringers. Children helped with percussive instruments for a couple of songs. Lastly, the Year 6 performed a selection of songs that had been learnt for the recent CASMA concert. During the interval a raffle was held and thanks to those who donated delicious refreshments. We raised an amazing £308.87!

Junior Choir Singing for The Nook

On Saturday 15thJune, 18 members of Junior Choir sang at the Community Centre. The Nook Friends’ Group invited us to sing, along with an adult group called Norwich Harmony. They were a barbershop choir and they were amazing! They were an ‘a capella’ choir, which means they sang with no instruments. They set a good example for us:

  1. They were loud and clear.
  2. They all wore the same clothes and shoes.
  3. They were always positive and happy.

We performed our 3 songs before the interval and the audience liked watching our clapping games.

For snack, there was drink, fruit and ICE CREAM!

After the interval, some men sang with the ladies, who had changed into beautiful blue dresses.

Lastly the raffle was drawn, and surprisingly lots of the choir members won prizes!

Judith, from the Friends’ Group, thanked us before announcing that The Nook is nearly, nearly ready.

For a finale, Norwich Harmony sang……… BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY by Queen. We had a great time and we could be part of the adult choir when we are older.

The evening raised a fantastic £1,176.
