| Year 6


Sherborne House School aims to always develop strong links with the local community which includes activities based around pupils supporting charities. This forms a very important part of the school’s curriculum and helps develop the moral, social and cultural development of all of the pupils at the school.

Last week, Year 6 hosted a 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning' event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support in order to raise money and awareness. After some introductory work in PSHE lessons about the work of Macmillan Cancer Support, the pupils in Year 6 worked hard to prepare and host a coffee morning at school.

They created posters to advertise the event and the games that they would run throughout the morning. Linking to work done in science on food nutrition, they were also tasked with creating cakes, biscuits and savoury items to serve on the day.

The event was well attended with over 40 adults present and the children all enjoyed the chance to serve food and drinks, as well as taking on the responsibility of running the games smoothly. It was fantastic to see the children communicating confidently with each other and the adults attending.

The coffee morning aimed to raise money to support the work of Macmillan in caring for cancer patients and their families, a subject close to the hearts of many. An amazing total of £345.70 was raised via donations on the day.

The event was also a wonderful opportunity for Year 6 pupils to work collaboratively in order to organise and host the coffee morning, as well as confidently approaching and entertaining all the visitors on the day. All very important life skills for them to practise and develop before taking the next step into secondary school.
