Walk to School Week 21st - 25th May 2018

Ark Little Ridge is joining other local schools to celebrate walking to school.  The challenge is for everyone in Hastings to walk to school every day next week during Walk to School Week and make a real difference to children’s happiness and wellbeing.  The school with the highest percentage of children walking will receive a trophy and 5 free lunchtime activity sessions led by Active Hastings.  So come on…….… get walking – it’s less stressful than trying to park!!

Y6 Experience World War II

 

Our Y6s went back to the 1940s to discover what life was like for children during World War II. Children came to school dressed in 1940s clothing and experienced life as an evacuee at the start of the war.  They learnt about how the war started and took part in activities such as stretcher bearing, how to deal with burning matter following air-raids, what it felt and sounded like to be in an Anderson shelter , used manual water pumps which would have been used to put out fires, learnt about spies and heard a real air raid siren (so did the rest of the school!).   Take a look at what they got up to!
