Belles for Bluebell

Last week was an emotional week, as we have done a few things to remember our special friend and student at Blakehill, Isabelle or as she liked to be called Belle. To do this, the entire school gathered together to take an aerial view picture of a yellow and white children’s cancer ribbon.

The day before, Year 6 marked it out in preparation for the main event. Then gathering together as a school, we got ready as Tom (a drone pro) got into his position with his drone overlooking us. They took the picture and it looks good!

That day, the children in year 6 planted bluebell bulbs as a memory of Belle and a way to remember her. We did it in groups of 10 and planted 60! I think this is a great idea as it is special.

We will always remember Belle for the beautiful, smiley girl that she was!

The whole school bike training day

During this week the whole school has participated in a very fun activity to be safer when riding are bikes.

The year that started first was the very enthusiastic year – the receptions but they didn’t ride peddle bikes they went on push bikes. The fun thing about it was that near to the end of everyone’s lesson we got to play a game. The rule of the game was to be the last person in the circle and if you go out or your foot touches the ground then you are out of the game. The next year was Year 1 ,their day was on Tuesday, and they did the same thing but they still had the push bikes. After them was Year 2 and they got to use the peddle bikes because they are much older but they weren’t very big. They were taught how to signal if they were on the road and to turn left they stuck their left hand out same if they were going right they put their right hand out. The next day it was Year 3’s turn to learn how to be safer on the road. In the game they played the circle became smaller and smaller until someone won.

The next people were Year 4  and they did the same thing but when we went past the man we had to put the right hand out and give him a high five. When people entered this pink box they had to put the right hand out for 5 seconds.

Hi I am Harley,

I want to be a blogger because I like computers. I also want to be a blogger because I can help school blogger type up about assembles. My favourite  hobby is to play on my PC and I play lots of word and maths games. I like to eat sandwiches when I am playing video games because it’s hungry work.

I love playing on my own  because  I have a chance to figure out maths and word problems by my self.

Goodbye Mr Lowe – We will Miss You

As the school year comes to a close, it is also the unfortunate end of Mr Lowe’s time at Blakehill. He has been a credit to the school and everyone will miss him dearly: he is one of the I.C.T leaders and a class teacher – who helps lots of pupils and his friends around school. This lovely young man is going to Thailand with his girlfriend to teach more children and get to know the different culture and life in the new country he is going to. 

We, as a school, would like to wish him the best on his new adventure and hope that he will have a great time in Thailand. Mr Lowe has served 7 years at Blakehill, and in that time has made a real difference to the school with his funny and caring nature, and will always stay in the heart of Blakehill , and its pupils and staff.

We have collected some quotes and messages from the staff and pupils at Blakehill:

Mrs Russell: “I am going to miss my work buddy a lot! Even though his tapping is annoying and he always makes me jump, I will be lost without him next year!”

Miss Gardener: “I am going to miss Mr Lowe so much! What is Blakehill going to do without him? How will we survive? I’ve cried to him, laughed with him and worked with him. He has put a smile on my face every single day! I will miss you so much!”

Miss Lea: “What am I going to do without him? Mr Lowe is wonderful and school will not be the same. His smile, silly comments and help will be missed lots!”

Mrs Bottomley: “He makes me laugh all the time, even when I shouldn’t. He is supportive and helpful. Mr Lowe had become a very good friend and I will miss him.”

Mrs Marsden: “Mr Lowe is funny, charming, witty, kind, helpful – especially with IT – but he can also be annoying with his tapping and pushing, especially in assembly. But he will be missed by everyone, including me!”

Pupils at the school have said:

“His teaching is inspiring”

“He is a computer whizz!” 

“Mr Lowe is a funny man!”

“The greatest teacher of all time!”

“Super funny!”

“Fun to be around”

Us Blakehill Bloggers would like to say a big thank you to Mr Lowe for making our Friday evenings a funny and enjoyable time, with his amusing actions and comments, making the group feel like a bunch of close friends. We hope you have a brilliant time in Thailand Mr Lowe and good luck on your new journey!

Year 5’s school trip

During this week, Year 5 have been hot on their feet getting ready for the best trip ever!

The first actual class, 5L, went to the big swing ,which is a big adventure play ground, and instead of going in ancient boring uniform we got to go in our own better clothes. The day that we went on was Tuesday 10th July. Eventually, the bus (that was the most comfiest bus ever) arrived and it included two tables that fit four people. Every one was all strapped in and comfy for the 15 minute  drive to the best park on this earth!

Finally, we arrived at the gates of the big swing and every one was bursting to get off the bus and play all day but we had to go through some safety rules which are: the big slide is out of bounds, hold on to the zip wire and the swing with both hands, jump landing on your feet and bend your knees. The place included a jumping tower with 6 places to jump from, a zip wire, a swing, 2 tree houses, another swing, an unavailable slide and a football pitch. The two main activities that we did was campfire building and cooking some marshmallows and den building. We got to use hammers and nails as well as ropes in order to make our dens water proof ready for our teachers to pour water on us! At the end of the day we were all tired out and exhausted so once we were on the bus, it was very quiet! We had a great day and slept well when we got home.
