The Big Sale, written by Coragh & Hannah, Year 6

By adm-howes-wire

As an end-of-year water slide party was going to be very expensive, Year 6 decided to raise money to pay for it.  All Year 6 pupils were invited to contribute their ideas. We finally agreed to hold a ‘Big Sale’ after school.  Although we had many brilliant ideas, we eventually agreed on: cakes, scones, brownies, cards, raffle, bracelets and face painting.

After a tiring week of doing SATs, we were relieved to get started on the exciting event ahead of us. The tasks were allocated to the pupils who were split into groups of four to six children. It seemed as busy as a factory as everyone worked tirelessly to achieve their goal.

Having set up our stalls in the hall, we waited anxiously for customers. What if nobody came? Fortunately we had nothing to worry about.  When the bell rang, children and parents swarmed into the hall and eagerly bought everything in sight.

On Monday the money was counted.  Can you guess how much we raised? An amazing £177.36!

Well done to our Year 6 and a big thank you to everyone who supported us.
