On Tuesday 6th November, we had a very special surprise visitor – it was Pudsey!
We are all looking forward to our pyjama and bad hair day to raise money for CIN.
On Tuesday 6th November, we were visited by Michael and his dog buddy from Animal Care. Michael and Buddy taught us all about the 5 welfare needs of all animals, and showed us the fantastic work that Animal Care do.
We learnt so much, and really enjoyed meeting Michael and Buddy. We would like to make a donation to Animal Care so if you would like to send in a cash donation, or a gift for one of the animals for Christmas (toys, treats, collar etc) , please see Mrs Whitaker.
We visited the judges lodgings to find out about toys in the past. We played lots of fun games with Mr Higginbottom, the house master, and looked at the toys in the Museum of Childhood.
Then we put on white gloves and looked at some very old toys. We tried to find clues as to when they were made. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed dressing up in our Victorian clothes.
Yesterday we had a visit from Pudsey Bear! He cam into school and met all of the teachers and children. We told him all about the fundraising we will be doing for Children in Need next Friday and he was very pleased.
Don’t forget to come to school in your pyjamas and style that crazy hair for Children in Need next Friday 16th November in return for a donation for CIN. We will have a limited number of Pudsey wristbands for sale which are £1 each.
A huge thank you again to Graham and Chris who came to school and despite the rain, have spent most of the day gathering, cleaning, scratting, pressing and bottling the most incredible apple juice with the children!
For all prospective Nursery and Reception children, feel free to come along and take a look round. Meet our teachers and see for yourself our fantastic Early Years department, there will be a chance to have a chat and ask any questions you may have.
You will be very welcome.
Mrs Healey left us at the end of the Summer term to take on her own class of children in another school.
After 16 years working here at Arkholme School we thought she deserved a special treat!
We recently had an overwhelmingly generous donation from Deloitte UK of 20(!) laptops.
This has doubled the IT provision and enabled a much wider use of IT for various subjects throughout the school.
Class 3 have had an interesting morning learning about a new campaign to protect the wildlife in the Irish Sea.
They have even written to the Prime Minister!
