Fundraising for Red Nose Day: Primary Funathlon
25 April 2022
On Friday 18th March, Primary pupils took part in a ‘Funathalon’ to raise money for Comic Relief. The afternoon consisted of three separate sponsored activities – similar to a triathlon but with much more fun.
We began with a singathon in the Hive. Pupils voted for songs to sing.
After 30 minutes, the pupils moved to the field for the walkathon – as many laps of the field as possible in 30 minutes. The final event was a dancethon – 30 minutes of dancing in the playground.
As as school, we raised £1299.94 in total, with £1100 of this coming from Primary. We thank you for all your support with this.

Primary pupils meet Kenilworth Books!
23rd February 2022
Thanks to the Siobhan Dowd Trust, who awarded Exhall Grange a Bookshop-Spree Grant, Primary pupils were able to meet Kenilworth Books to choose new books for their Primary School library.
Pupils were able to speak to the bookshop and express which books they thought they would like to read.
A massive ‘thank-you’ to the Siobhan Dowd Trust and Kenilworth books for their generosity and time.
Thank you also to Miss Kempson, our librarian, for organising the event. Our fantastic Primary pupils can’t wait for the books to arrive at the library and to start reading them!
