Children in Need - Pudsey Bear

On Thursday the 16th of November 2017 we had a surprise visit from a famous, yellow bear. Children and teachers were both shocked and amazed to welcome Pudsey bear and BBC Radio Lancashire into our school. Pudsey showed us his signature move 'the dab' and we all shared smiles and laughs with him. After all the excitement, he thanked us for our super fundraising. An amazing time was had by all and it really was a day that staff and children will never forget! Thank you Pudsey!

Burnley in the Community 

Year 5 have been working with Burnley in the Community to develop their knowledge and understanding of healthy eating and diet. As a reward Scott Arfield and Charlie Taylor came to visit the children and award them with certificates. 

 

Dan Worsley - Author visit

On Friday 22nd of September we had a spell binding visit from children’s author Dan Worsley. The children hung off his every word and came out from his assembly with great enthusiasm about reading and writing. Dan is a fabulous writer and also an amazing story teller which meant that the children (and teachers alike!) were mesmerised by his performance. We can tell that he had a real impact on us as the children are still talking about his visit and also their own aspirations to be an author like him. He really caught the imaginations of our pupils and we hope to welcome him back to our school again in the future.

Here are some pictures from his visit to give you a taste of the super time that we had.

 

Farm Visit

On Wednesday 27th October we had a fantastic visit from a local farmer. We enjoyed feeding and stroking the animals whilst also learning lots about them. One highlight was Miss Scott having to catch a naughty duck! We also got to meet Albert the Alpaca who was very cheeky. This was a fabulous experience which Year Two will remember forever.
