At school we have a Rota kids club it is based in Purple class, Rota kids is part of the Rotary organisation and we are sponsored by our local Rotary club that is based in Wallasey.
Our Rota kids have just held their first charter celebration, this means we have been registered and affiliated for one year. We all went to the Bluebelle tea rooms to celebrate, what a great time we had. At the tea rooms our new pupils to Purple class made their promise to become a Rota kid, the President of Wallasey Rotary Shaun came to officiate and present the certificates.
December was a busy month full of Christmas activities, we did find time to help the homeless we asked everyone in school to save their crisp packets. We and some other classes cut the packets open, washed and dried them.Then with the help of the Ladies from The Inner Wheel we ironed the crisp packets together in rows of 5, then ironed them together. We used old plastic sheets to cover the whole thing, ironed it on and sewed around the edge on the sewing machine-Hurrah we had made our first Bivouac bag (a waterproof emergency survival bag) to give to the homeless. It takes 150 crisp packets to make 1 bag, we have made and given to the night shelter 5 bags phew! what a lot of ironing. We are still collecting crisp packets but unfortunately we do not have time to make anymore bags in school, we will be sending our bags to an outside organisation that are able to complete more bags. Well done everyone.
