Over the last ten years, Year 4 junior apprentices at Marine Park First School have selected a non-uniform theme and put on a talent show to raise funds for Children in Need.

But this year, due to the pandemic, the apprentices created a tutorial video teaching the children a ‘Marine Park and Children in Need tongue twister’ with a series of moves.

Last Friday, 520 pupils – in the safety of their class bubbles – learned more about Children in Need, watched the videos and joined in, using their donations to vote for their favourite Junior Apprentice group.

And they managed to raise £919.15 for Children in Need.

Headteacher Stephen Easton said: “I would like to congratulate the Y4 Junior Apprentices for raising money by creating amazing, entertaining videos and thank children, parents and staff for their generosity supporting Children in Need.”
