It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
On behalf of the Governors, Headteacher, Staff, Parents and Pupils of Arkholme Church of England Primary School, we offer our deepest sympathy and condolences to King Charles III and all the Royal Family.
The loss to the nation and the Commonwealth of such a loyal, compassionate and outstanding Monarch is immeasurable.

We are all looking forward to our pyjama and bad hair day to raise money for CIN.
This week we have been celebrating the Hindu festival of Diwali. We shared the story of Rama and Sita to find out why this celebration is also known as the ‘Festival of Lights’.
We made our own Diva pots out of clay.
In maths we looked at Rangoli patterns and made our own using chalks, cut out shapes and saltdough with beans and pulses.
On Thursday we all worked together to prepare a Diwali Feast. We had poppadoms with mango chutney, sweet potato curry with chapatis, mango lassi and coconut ice.
The children visited Clitheroe castle to find out how the Saxons ruled England and how they organised their society. The children examined and handled some of the artefacts left behind to give them an insight into how the Saxons lived their lives. Finally they discovered the reasons for the rise and fall of the last Saxon kings, and were party to the invasion of both Vikings and Normans, and participated in three battles which eventually allowed the Normans to conquer Britain.
On Thursday 23rd March a team of children from Class 4 represented our school at the County Sports Hall Final in Blackpool.
