Magic Breakfast Fundraiser

Posted: 16th February 2022

On Friday 11th February the entire school gathered for Churchill’s charity day! This year we were raising money for Magic Breakfast, which ensures that no child is too hungry to learn by providing a healthy breakfast.  Independent research found that providing a free, nutritious ‘magic’ breakfast to pupils in school boosted their reading, writing and maths by an average of 2 months’ progress per year, compared to pupils in schools with no such breakfast provision.  The Food Foundation last year reported that nearly 2.3 million children were living in households experiencing food poverty.  It was a great morning and the children really enjoyed having their breakfast altogether.  It was a lot of fun and hopefully, we have raised a great amount for this charity so that they can continue their excellent work! We also heard from Anoushka; a nutritionist. She gave us a talk about the importance of breakfast and was able to answer   interesting questions the children had such as, ‘if we eat bread and cereal for breakfast, why don’t we do that for lunch and dinner?’ I would also like to say a big thank you to all the staff who helped during the morning and the kitchen staff who prepared all the wonderful food.
