BROMLEY Heath Junior School pupils linked their latest theme of ‘kindness’ to the Big Help Out volunteering event launched as part of the Coronation celebrations.
Year 4 children carried out a litter pick in the neighbourhood to care for the environment, while Year 5s greeted and packed bags for customers at the Co-op to raise money for charities, collecting a total of £87.68 for Diabetes UK and £73.55 for Macmillan.
Year 3 pupils ran a break-time fruit stall in the playground which raised £24.73 for the North Bristol and South Gloucestershire Food Bank, while children in Year 6 explored how to show kindness to the planet by thinking about their carbon footprint.
Deputy head teacher Stewart McSmythurs said: “The children have really enjoyed supporting one another and the community.”
Children dressed in red, white and blue for Coronation activities including crown-making, designing new stamps and drawing portraits before celebrating the event with squash, cup-cakes and traditional games.
They also learned about coronation traditions stretching back to Anglo-Saxon times, studied coronation regalia and the timeline of the British monarchy.
