Snugpak (the Silsden based manufacturer) visited school last week with their world record breaking sleeping bag. The fully functional sleeping bag was rolled out in the hall and the whole school came in and sat on it for an assembly. The bag weighs 80kg and stretches to an incredible 20 metres long.
Alongside this, school has been collecting food and clothing for homeless people in our local area. Silsden Methodist minister, Ruth Crompton, visited school to receive the items and talked to the children about what it means to be homeless. Here are some photos of our assembly and a short video explaining the work of Centrepoint, the UK’s leading homeless charity.
