Bosbury Pupils Meet Pudsey and Go Back to the 80s!
Bosbury School was awash with fluorescent colours and interesting fashion choices on Friday as children and staff alike went back to the 80s in their Lizzie Webb-inspired retro sportswear for Children in Need, even getting the chance to meet the charity's mascot himself and participate in an energetic Skipping for Friendship activity!
Although there was some doubt over whether pupils and staff would be in school at all as several hours of heavy rain the previous day caused Bosbury School to have to close early because of flooding for the first time since 2007, the floodwaters subsided enough on the Friday morning for everyone to get to school safely in their 80s wear, with Pudsey being seen making his way up the Leadon before being transferred to the waiting BBC Hereford and Worcester vehicle in order to pay us a special visit.
The children were absolutely delighted to see our special furry visitor and give him a cuddle (including a certain two members of staff from Class 5, see above), with two lucky young ladies from Class 4 even getting the chance to be interviewed on local radio as Pudsey gratefully picked up the money which we had raised from coming into school dressed in our retro gear.
Skipping frenzy then took over as each class got the chance to practise their rope skills as part of Skipping for Friendship Day, with a number of brightly-coloured skipping ropes being sold as well as Bosbury pupils and staff alike really caught the skipping bug!
Well done to everyone who took part in such an enjoyable day to raise money for a very good cause. We will leave you with more photos of Bosbury children and adults sporting their eye-catching array of 80s fashions. As you can see, some of the staff appeared to get rather over-excited at the prospect of re-living such a memorable decade!
