Sponsored Matchbox Challenge

The PTA are launching their sponsored matchbox challenge for half term.  Children will bring home a matchbox, rules sheet and sponsorship form.  We challenge the children to fill their boxes; please read the rules sheet.  Once full, itemise the contents on the list sheet and write down the total number of items in the box.  Please ask friends and family to sponsor your child, either per item or a set amount of money for filling the box and return to school by Friday 27th October.  Children are also encouraged to decorate their matchboxes, leaving the base clear with their names on it.  Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated matchboxes and also for the highest number of items inside.  Thank you.
