Sport Relief Success at Faraday
Sport Relief has been a huge success at Michael Faraday! We have staged themed activities each lunchtime, with adults kindly giving up their time to help put on these events. The obstacle course was very popular, and we found some very talented cheerleaders. It was great to see the elder pupils helping out the younger children during the skipping session. Over £100 has been raised from these lunchtime activities alone.
The grand event however has been the Walk a Mile that we staged at nearby Burgess Park at the end of the week. All pupils were encouraged to wear red for Sport Relief. Year 6 mapped out the mile, and the whole school spent a great morning over at Burgess.
We concluded our week of fund raising and sporting activity with the annual staging of the Faraday Tigers Vs the Faraday All Stars football match. This friendly fixture matches up our trophy winning school football team against some adult sporting staff, who perhaps have seen better days.
The whole school came out to celebrate and support our fundraising efforts. Many of the children had made their own cheerleading pom poms, adding a fun atmosphere to the occasion. You can watch a video featuring all the fun of the skipping session above, as well as view some photographs from the friendly football match below.
