Tree planting

Today, a week earlier than planned, we have planted 75 trees!





A huge thanks to The Woodland Trust who very kindly donated 75 trees to us here at school for the children to plant! You can read about The Woodland Trust on their website






Graham Jackson-Pitt and Alice Helyar helped the children plant the trees today on the Village Hall field, thank you also to the Trustees of AVH for letting us extend their woodland area.





World Book Day – Dress as a word

What a fabulous day for World Book Day! This year, we set the challenge to dress as a word and what a brilliant and imaginative selection of words we have seen!


Fragile, Flamboyant, Puzzled, Rainbow, Injured and Odd to name a few! Mrs Ingram is Emotional!




The children are using all these words to be creative with their writing and making some great sentences.



Thank you to you all for such a great World Book Day!

What an incredible competition! The children worked so hard to write some excellent stories and on Wednesday we welcomed Jo Baker, a former pupil of Arkholme school who just so happens to be an international best selling author!

Procession of Light

Arkholme’s first Procession Of Light was a fantastic evening, which was incredibly well attended despite the rain!




The lanterns looked magical leading the way up Main Street, stopping at various points along the way to hear the story of Christmas. Members of the school choir sung for us once we got back to school and the refreshments which were provided by Arkholme with Cawood Parish Council were enjoyed by all.




Thank you to everyone who helped, came along and took part in the event, it was a great event attended by the whole community.
