Robins – Shock Kidnap!

You will not believe what has happened in Robin class today!

Earlier, a mysterious letter appeared in the office, confused, Mrs Waddington delivered it to Robin Class.

It transpires that Sunny the Meerkat has been kidnapped! The children have been dusting for finger prints, looking for clues and trying to untangle this mysterious problem.

Service of Remembrance

On Monday 12th November, we all walked to St John the Baptist Church, Arkholme, for a service of remembrance to mark the 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Mr Bonwick and the children of Owl Class very capably and poignantly led us in readings, poems and prayers.

We all returned to school for the unveiling of our thankful stone, which has been placed in recognition of Arkholme as a Thankful Village. The children left lanterns around the stone and made a collective poppy out of painted pebbles.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

And now our lights shine bright in remembrance of those that made the ultimate sacrifice and with thanks for those that returned to Arkholme.

 

Animal Care

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.
