Community Project

Autumn term Project:


This term Year Six will be working with Jayne Biggs from Heart2Heart- Norfolk. We are hoping to raise some money for her charity. From her work, she has placed in excess of 250 defibrillators around the local, East Anglian community. Our goal is to raise enough money to help her install one more - we hope not far from the Elm Tree school gates.

Today, the children discussed and conducted a democratic vote as to how they planned on raising the funds. The final decisions were:


- Hosting a Halloween themed bingo night for parents and the local community


- Contacting Jayne to see if she is able to conduct some defibrillator/CPR training for parents and the local community


- Running some form of stall/raffle at the Elm Tree 2021 Christmas Productions


- Organising a challenging, sponsored event (yet to be decided upon)


For these events, the children will be taking full control of the planning and organisation. They will hold year group discussions to make joint, fair decisions and plans for the next steps. The children have already began creating advertisements for some of the earlier events and these will be sent out once completed.


If you are able to donate in any way, however large or small, to our chosen charity, please do not hesitate to contact either Mr Smith, Mrs Chapman or Mrs Chenery on their email address (see below). Alternatively, you can pop into our school office.
