October 2021 Macmillan Coffee Morning and the Food Bank Collection

Many thanks to all our families for supporting our Macmillan Coffee morning and our Harvest Festival food bank collection this month.

We raised £163.31 for Macmillan Cancer Support and were able to send many crates of food to our local foodbank. 

Roger from the Trussell Trust was able to join our celebrations and was very grateful for our support.

Sing Up Day 


                     The whole school joined together today to celebrate Sing Up Day along with other countries around the world. Members from OPAL were welcomed by children from Y5 and Y6. 

They enjoyed serving our guests cake , tea and coffee.

The theme of the assembly showed how music is a powerful tool to help our mental and physical health and unifies us through singing together. We are looking forward to seeing ourselves on the didgichoir along with other singers from round the world.


Thanks for all your donations to our Harvest Festival and our Macmillan coffee morning.  The coffee morning raised a fabulous £127.18 and it took two men and many, many crates to deliver all the food to the food bank!

Raising money for Guide Dogs for the Blind

Lucy and Zahra in Year 3 earned a new badge for Brownies by organising and running a very successful bun sale, to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind.  We were very lucky to be joined by Kevin and Spencer. 

The TESCO Foodshare, 'pay as you feel'  table has raised £62.76 for this term's charity MIND.  Thank you for your contributions 



                                                                                                                                                                          Watch the Singup digichoir to see Adel Primary`s contribution to Singup Day, singing`One Moment, One People`,  along with 30 other countries from around the world.


There were more than 300 events around the world and over than 30 schools took part.

 This year's anthem One moment, one people focused on working together, singing together, and building powerful connections -From The Netherlands to New Zealand, there was singing in classrooms, assemblies, playgrounds, concert halls, and just about everywhere. 

The children and teachers of Adel Primary are very proud to have supported this event along with members of our community from OPAL.

OPAL members join us to celebrate Sing Up Day

OPAL members enjoyed tea and cakes with Izzy, Aidan and Sakina from Y5 before sharing our singing celebration as part of Sing Up Day on March 13th. Our visitors shared their favourite music with the children who enjoyed asking them lots of questions. They said how much they  `loved seeing the children enjoying themselves` and commented how `passionately` the children sang.



Ten children from Years 3&4 were invited to sing Christmas songs at the  Adel Golf Club`s Christmas lunch for members of OPAL (Older People`s  Action in the Locality). The children sang their hearts out in their Christmas regalia, including a turkey hat and a 'larger than life Christmas pudding'!.

Both the children and the OPAL group loved chatting and beginning the Christmas celebrations together.  

Bring & Buy Sale

Thanks to an idea from a young man in Year 3 we held a fabulous Bring & Buy sale in aid of Children in Need.  Year 3 did an amazing job promoting the sale, organising the donated toys and games, pricing, and selling.  The whole school turned out to buy! 


The TESCO Foodshare 'pay as you feel' table has raised a wonderful £135.38 for the Leeds Autism Service Charity form September to December. Many thanks for all your contributions.  We will continue to run the Foodshare table and will choose a new charity to receive your donations.   


We held our annual Macmillan coffee morning in October, raising £252.58 for Macmillan Cancer Support.  

Thank you to Year 5, who did a super job serving cakes and entertaining our younger visitors. 

For the third year running we donated our harvest goods to the North Leeds Foodbank.  It is always a pleasure to welcome their volunteers into school and a big thank you to Mary for attending our Harvest Festival.  

The NSPCC came to deliver an assembly to the whole school, as well as online safety workshops to Years 5 and 6.  To say a big thank you we all took part in Buddy's workout challenge.  We raised a superb £872.18

Well done to all the children and our families for their generous sponsorship.
