What’s your Goal
As part of our RE curriculum, we have been learning about how Catholics support their wider global family. The CAFOD campaign for 2020 is called ‘What’s your Goal?’ which is aimed at supporting the people of the Amazon who are desperately trying to defend their rainforest. Shockingly, every 30 seconds an area of rainforest the size of a football pitch is destroyed due to deforestation. To help them in their crucial work, we will be holding a number of fun football-based fundraising events that the children can get involved in to help raise money.
On Friday 3rd April, the children will be invited to come to school in football kits/sports kits for a £1.00 contribution. Throughout the day, the children will take part in a range of activities including a penalty shoot-out competition, a ‘keepie-uppie’ challenge, finger football/phase football tournament.
In addition, on this day, all of the children from Nursery to Year 4 will be working in teams to complete a sponsored event – ‘The Football Dribbling Challenge’. As a school, the challenge is for the children to keep a football moving for the entire school day by dribbling it through a specially designed obstacle course. Each year group will have to do this for a designated length of time during the day. Sponsorship forms will be going out next week and we would be grateful for any contributions or support you could give. The 3 children that raise the most money will become Principals for the Day with me during the summer term.
