Our school voted to have a pyjama day to raise money for Children in Need. The School Council planned and led an exciting assembly for the whole school. We found out about where the money raised for Children in Need goes.

Autumn Celebration

Our pumpkin carving competition produced many amazing pumpkins that we displayed around our school. Our spooky cup competition was great fun and we sold the fantastic cups for a donation towards school resources. A huge thank you to all who entered our competitions and donated. You all did a great job and it was extremely difficult for the School Council to decide the winners and runners-up.

Macmillan Coffee Morning –

28th September 2018


You said- “We want to take part in Macmillan Coffee Morning to raise money for charity.”

Last Friday, we hosted our Macmillan Coffee Morning at school. Lots of pupils made some amazing cakes for us to sell. There were cakes everywhere! Some parents came to have a cake and cup of coffee, which was nice. Pupils had their cakes at break time. I had a delicious green cake. There were lots of cakes left over so we sold them in the playground after school. I really enjoyed selling the cakes. We raised £404.25 to help people with cancer.

At Park Road Academy, our children are the most important people. We believe that their voice is invaluable. Our elected School Council Representatives meet weekly to discuss class and whole school issues. They bring to the meetings suggestions from their classmates on how to improve our school. Our Representatives work together to organise fundraising events to raise money for a variety of charities. They enthusiastically plan assemblies to inform their peers and teachers about issues that are important to them.

Emoji Egg Decorating Competition

As part of our Easter celebrations this year, we held an egg decorating competition. We put the theme to a vote and the school decided the theme should be emojis.


Have a look at some of our fantastic creations!

Lego Club

Our lunch time Lego Club is very popular at the moment. We have seen some great team work to complete our Lego challenges. Well done to all pupils who have already received a Lego Master Builder certificate.

Imagination Club

It has been great to see pupils taking turns to enjoy a story at break times. Some of our older pupils have been reading to children in KS1. Some of our Year 2 pupils have also been reading to pupils from Reception. After the stories, pupils have been acting out their favourite parts. They have even started to use props and their imagination to create their own wonderful stories. We are looking forward to sharing some of these fun ideas with the Teaching and Learning Committee.

St Alban’s Christmas Tree Festival

We loved visiting St Alban’s church to set up our ‘Helping Hands’ tree for their Christmas Tree Festival. We were very proud of the decorations made by everyone at our school. It was great to read the messages that pupils had written about how they had helped someone during our Helping Hands week.


Pumpkin Festival- 1st November 2017

Yesterday, we had our Pumpkin Festival. Some of the School Council played pumpkin games at lunch time with the children. We had ‘Stick the Stalk on the Pumpkin’, ‘Pumpkin Feet’ and some craft activities. We also had a Pumpkin Carving Competition to raise money for Once Upon a Smile. All of the entries were very creative. They were so superb that it was very hard to choose the winners. We raised £55.80. Thank you for your kind donations.

Macmillan Coffee Morning – 4th October 2017

Changes to Lunch time menus

New lunch time clubs

Some pupils suggested that we could have some new clubs at lunch times. We asked pupils what they would like to do and set up new clubs for lunch times. We enjoy running the clubs because we love the activities too. The activities help to us keep fit and healthy. They also help us to make new friends. 

Egg Decorating Competition - 31st March 2017

Today, we judged the Mr Men and Little Miss decorated eggs. The entries were fantastic and it was great to see such a wide variety of characters. It took us a long time to choose the winners and runners up. Well done to everyone that entered!


Here are our two winners with their very creative entries:



Red Nose Day- 24th March 2017

Today, we raised money for Comic Relief by dressing up as our favourite ‘noses’. Everybody made a huge effort to dress up so we gave out lots of ‘best dressed nose’ certificates. We put on an assembly to inform everyone about Red Nose Day and why it is important to fundraise. We also had lots of funny moments to laugh at in the assembly, which was great because we found out that laughing actually increases our immune cells! Well done to all pupils who got up on stage to tell a joke in our Comedy Battle, especially Year 5 who were our Comedy Battle Champions. Together we raised an impressive £187. 

Our 'Family' Christmas Tree

On Thursday 1st December, we went to St Alban’s church to set up our family themed Christmas tree. It took a long time to decorate because we had lots of lovely decorations, which were made by all of our pupils. Many people at St Alban’s told us that our tree looked wonderful and thanked us for contributing to their tree festival. Thank you for your decorations and have a Merry Christmas!

Festive Jumper Day - 14th December 2016

The whole school were excited to wear their festive jumpers and we saw a great variety. Everyone loved getting together to eat their Christmas dinner and sing along to the Christmas songs. A great day was had by all and we were able to raise some money for Save the Children. We hope that this will help to bring a smile to less fortunate children.

British Heart Foundation Dodgeball Workshop - 31st October 2016

Our dodgeball workshops were great fun and helped us to learn more about the brilliant game. We also enjoyed working with the sports leaders to organise the workshops and gain new ideas. We are certainly looking forward to continuing our dodgeball matches at lunch times which will help us to stay healthy. We raised an impressive £235 in total. £188 has been sent to the British Heart Foundation and £47 (20%) will go towards more sports equipment for our school, as suggested by the British Heart Foundation.

MacMillan Coffee Morning

Our coffee morning was a HUGE success. We had a great variety of delicious cakes to sell thanks to everybody’s superb baking. It was very hard to choose our star bakers as everyone had made such a great effort. Well done to Isabel and Sebastian who were chosen by our judges. We hope that our parents enjoyed themselves and we would like to thank them for donating so generously. We certainly enjoyed our cakes! Together, we raised £333 for Macmillan.
