This afternoon we welcomed some very special visitors to our school. Pudsey Bear and his friend Lucy popped in to say hello to everyone and to help us plan how we might support Children in Need. Pudsey was Flossing while Mr Grason was talking and that did make everyone laugh quite loudly.We put some music on and everyone got up and had a dance with Pudsey.
On Thursday 13th September 2018, we were delighted to find out that Joe, Isaac, Owen and Freddie from Leaders Class had been chosen as winners in a competition. Sirius Minerals asked school children from the local area to name a piece of their new mine shaft machinery and the boys’ name was chosen. The group decided that Bessy was the perfect name for the machine, as it has a meaning of “God’s promise” The children wanted the workers of the machinery to always be safe and protected and the team at Sirius agreed that Bessy was the perfect name for this!
In a special opening ceremony, the boys revealed the machine’s name to television cameras and radio interviews, as well as a rather large crowd of workers. The celebrities for the day were total superstars and spoke so well to the media and Sirius staff. They were a total asset to the school and made us very proud. The story was also shared across a range of news stations. Well done boys!
