Kingfisher Class enjoyed a morning of Stone Age fun with Wood Matters on 13th June.
First they made stone axes then played Stone Age hunters.
They learned how to identify prey animals by their skulls and tracks. They made string out of reeds.
Finally they made beautiful hammed leaf and flower prints in the woods.
On Wednesday, our 10 golfers from Kingfisher Class took a trip to Southport to the British Masters Pro-Am day, where professional golfers play with celebrity amateurs. We had a brilliant day, the children played Beat The Pro with Scott Gregory the British pro golfer. Chatted to Mark Foster the Olympic Gold Medalist and Strictly Come Dancing Star. They were inspired by watching some of their favourite celebrities playing golf and even got a little ride in a very posh Bentley Bentayga!.
We would like to give a huge thank you to Mr Ingram who made it all possible!
There was considerable interest from the press, with ruler microphones, in Kingfisher Class this morning. The children have begun a new unit on ‘stories from other countries’ and were broadcasting aspects of our own culture that others would find interesting.
Excitement levels are high in Kingfisher Class this morning as a fistful of class job adverts have appeared on our noticeboard!
Applications are being composed as we speak!
The Lune Valley Cluster School’s Tournament took place this week here at Arkholme School. All 10 of the Lune Valley Cluster Schools attended and great teamwork and sportsmanship was shown from all the teams.
The year 3/4 competition was won by Tatham Fells and the Year 5/6 competition was won by Hornby.
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.
