17 Nov Radio Lancashire, Children in Need and Pudsey Bear!
What a great week! On Tuesday we had Radio Lancashire broadcast LIVE from our reception area all morning. It was a pleasure to welcome them into school and fascinating to see how the whole broadcasting process worked. The staff and children were all fantastic, as always, which attracted high praise from all involved. The Mayor of Chorley came along for an interview, as did Tim Brown the butcher, who brought along a range of his sausages. Brett and Sally, the presenters, interviewed our school council, Tilly (about her Children in Need fundraiser), Mrs Hargreaves in the office and myself. The whole morning just saw us all being ourselves, which was a good job as it was tricky at times to know whether we were on air or not! You can catch the show on iPlayer via http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05l5l3b if you like! And then…..Pudsey Bear arrived!!! The excitement was unbelievable and it was great to welcome Pudsey and all the Children in Need gang into school afterwards. Thank you to Elaine our cook for feeding them all so well! It was lovely to highlight Children in Need by having a non-uniform day today. We were overwhelmed by such kind donations for Children in Need. Thank you also to three lovely boys from Year 5, Jonathan Ball, George Gosling and James Kearney, for making cakes and biscuits to sell, such a lovely, generous thought. The cake sale raised a fantastic £50, with a whopping grand total of £403.25 going to this worthwhile charity.
