Children at Emneth Nursery School have raised money for a charity which helps children who struggle to communicate.
The youngsters from the nursery, in Hollycroft Road, performed songs and nursery rhymes in front of proud families and staff for the annual Chatterbox Challenge last Friday.
Following weeks of practice and rehearsal, their efforts raised £82 for I CAN, the children’s communication charity.
Headteacher Susan Clarke said: “We were thrilled to have participated in I CAN’s Chatterbox Challenge 2011.
“The children have really enjoyed learning and singing nursery rhymes and practicing their speech and language skills.
“Our 2011 Chatterbox Challenge has been a great success and the children thoroughly enjoyed the activities, as well as helping raise money for those who have difficulties with language.”
Virginia Beardshaw, I CAN chief executive, added: “This was a very special year for the Chatterbox Challenge as we celebrate its 10th anniversary.
“The challenge is a great way to raise funds and awareness for the thousands of children across the UK who struggle to communicate.”
