Comic Relief – Red Nose Day

On Friday, the whole school had a great day fundraising for Comic Relief – where children came to school dressed in something red.

Just after lunch, we held a KS1 and KS2 joke competition – where 20 children’s jokes were shortlisted. These children then shared their joke with the rest school, and an eventual winner was chosen for each by means of the volume of applause.


In KS1, our winning pupil was Joey. KS2 was a little harder to judge with it first being impossible to choose between Ted, Libby, Will S and Edward . After a retelling of their jokes and a remeasure of their applause, Ted was chosen as our KS2 winning joke.


Our two winners of each key stage then went to head-to-head as the “whole-school best joke”. After a very close applause volume, Joey was declared the winner.


Check out the shortlisted jokes below:

Joey (whole-school and KS1 winner): “What’s the best present to receive?    ….   A broken drum… You just can’t beat it!”

Ted (KS2 winner): “Knock, knock.”    …   “Who’s there?”   …   “Boo”  …   “Boo who?”   …   “It’s only a joke. There’s no need to cry!”

Libby (KS2 finalist): “What do you call a flying monkey?   …   A hot-air baboon.”

Edward (KS2 finalist): “What’s the best thing about Switzerland?   …   I don’t know, but the flag’s a big plus!”

Will S (KS2 finalist): “Why couldn’t the pony sing?   …   Because it was a little horse!”
