The Big Sing 2015

On the 12th February was the Big Sing 2015. This is where 10 children from each school in Bradford come to Blakehill Primary to sing different songs. The schools that came are: Blakehill, Thorpe,  Fagley, St Lukes,  Greengates ,  Poplars farm, Thackley, Cavendish, Grove house, Parkland, Holybrook, Our lady at St Brendan’s & Swain House.

They sung lots of different songs including ‘Juba’ and ‘Ain’t gonna let no body turn around’. They had been practising for  many weeks, however this was the first time they had all sung together. It was a fantastic event and a great opportunity for local schools to work together.

World Book Day

Next Thursday it will be World Book Day and everyone will be bringing in books, as well as swapping and sharing them.

We will be doing special activities, such as  an extreme reading competition and a book swap. We will also be sharing our favourite books with people from other classes and 30 children from years 5 and 6 are going to Immanuel for WBD activities. At the end of the day, everyone will receive a £1 voucher for a book.

We hope everyone has a great time, and that they enjoy sharing the love of reading!

Year 2S Class Assembly

Today 2S did an amazing assembly all about Spring time and growing. They all spoke loudly and clearly. They told us about how they had set up a cress seed experiment. In the experiment, they put one tray of seeds with water on the windowsill, one without water on the windowsill, one in the fridge with water and one in the dark cupboard with water. I wonder how this experiment will turn out? At the end of their assembly they sang a song about a tiny seed growing in Spring. They sang beautifully. They did some really good acting to the story of Billy’s Sunflower. As well as the story, they showed us some painted pictures of sunflowers that they had created of the famous painting by the artist Vincent van Gogh. Their paintings were amazing. 2S are also doing a competition in their class to see whose sunflower grows the tallest.

Well Done!

Safer Internet Day 2015

This Tuesday 10th February  was safer internet day. The digital leaders were very brave and did an assembly all about safer internet day. They did a quiz to test us on how much we new on safer internet day. We had to put thumbs up or thumbs down. It turns out that we know lots about the internet. In class we did some safer internet promises and lots of them had a lot of thought in them. Most of the children have already started doing their promises. The digital leaders, who did the assembly, were very nervous when they were doing the assembly. Even though we already knew lots about the internet ,the assembly that the digital leaders did has helped us understand even more.

2G created their own rap about safer internet day! They thought really carefully about what they were going to include in their rap. They then practised their rap a lot and used the iPads to record it. It was clear that they worked very hard and enjoyed doing it!
