On Friday 15th February we went to the Zion Theatre Hulme to explore the stories of Julia Donaldson. We had a great time being story explorers. s.
This morning we had a visit from three fire fighters from Lancaster’s Red Watch. They spoke to the children in Owl Class and Robin Class to tell them about fire and road safety.

This is to inform you as parents that school will be having an Ofsted inspection tomorrow, Tuesday 29th January 2019.
As part of our topic work on celebrations, Puffin Class held a class wedding. The bride was attended by her many bridesmaids and the best man did a great job of keeping our groom calm.
On Tuesday the children in Puffin Class received a personal invitation from Alabaster Snowball, inviting them onto a magical train ride to see Father Christmas!
We all wore our best Christmas clothes and boarded the steam train. After a festive snack, a visit from a magician and Christmas singing, Santa came to see us and gave us a present.
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.
On Tuesday afternoon we went outside to make some big firework art. We listened to Handel’s ‘Music for the Royal Fireworks’ whilst we painted. We squirted, sprayed and splodged, to get movement in our art. It was great fun and our work looks amazing!
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.
