Pudsey Bear visit for Children in Need

Pupils were thrilled when Pudsey Bear, icon of BBC Children in Need, paid them a visit last Monday.

The children brought in donations for Children in Need and wore their very own spotty accessories and Pudsey ears to tie in with ‘The Big Spotacular’ theme this year.
