Corby Glen Young Journalists

Our Young Journalists meet every Monday after school to create blog articles; films and material for the school newspaper. Please take a look at our new blog and comment on the posts that we make.


On Thursday 29th November Corby Glen school will be going to St John’s church for Christingle. We will be singing the songs that the we have practised. Don’t worry, we have song sheets for the adults. For Christingle you will need to remember to bring an orange with a red ribbon tied around, 4 cocktail sticks with lots of little fruits. It starts at 2:00pm and ends at about 3:00pm. If you can, it would be lovely if you came to support the school. We hope to see you there!

Children in Need

Last Friday (16th November), was a special day known as Children in Need. This spectacular day is created to raise money for ill children/teenagers, who have suffered terribly. They may not actually be ill, they may suffer from a loss that made them sad. The money we raise goes to the care homes and people who help these unfortunate youngsters.

Most of the British population watches the Children in Need show, that happens on the very night. It lasts a long time, so you may need to watch it the next morning. But, the show is there to tell everyone why they should call and donate.  You could have donated, £10, £20 or £30. The total raised was £50,595,093! That is a record-breaking amount. The overall total is still to be announced but is soon. Children in Need have two mascots: Pudsey and Blush! They have supported Children in Need for years! Pudsey was created in 1985. He soon became the Children in Need mascot. But Blush came soon after and became a ‘friend’ of Pudsey’s.



We had our own type of celebration for Children in Need; we wore crazy clothes and did activities in the afternoon. We also had a colouring competition. We had to colour Pudsey in the most creative way possible. The winner was Eloise Lockton with an amazing design. The winner was picked by School Council, who came up to announce the winner in Celebration Assembly. We raised £96.28 in school, but that was without Robin Class as they were on their school trip. Remember to keep raising for those who have been unlucky. By Amber Allison.

Dance at Corby Glen

Greenfinch class are doing a dance about the plague. We got put in groups first and we had to make a dance about the man that carried the cloth from London to Eyam. Then, we danced the rest of the story. Here are some of the results:
