Year 1 class assembly

Today, Year 1 have produced a fabulous assembly all about Sikhism and where it began. They started off by welcoming their audience, half of the school and the parents of the children, as they began to explain when and where the religion was founded. The class said that the religion started over 500 years ago and the man who started it was born in India. He travelled all around India spreading the religion’s beliefs as well as telling everyone what to do and how to practise the religion.

We also learnt that they have been on a trip to the Gurdwara. This is where Sikhs go to worship their gods, bow in front of their holy book and where they share stories from it. The lady who talked to them chose a little girl named Hannah to demonstrate how to put a turban on . Back in the assembly, they told us that they carried a little metal sword called Kippah.

It was a fantastic assembly and we cannot wait for their next one!

1G class assembly

On Friday the 11th of January, 1G did a fantastic assembly all about the four seasons that are in a year. The first season was Winter! We all knew what winter was about after they shared with us lots of interesting facts. The coldest season starts in December and ends in February. They said, “You need to wrap up warm in a coat, hat and gloves.”

They then moved on to talk about the season spring. First they explained that “It rains and then sun comes out,” but then they also warned us not to put our rain coats away just yet! The reason they explained about that was to remind you what to expect and what spring in our country is all about!

The summer time was their favourite one to talk about because they can go out to beaches and go for a swim in the pool. They loved how it was really warm outside and that they got to go to the farm. They told us all about farm animals. Then at the end they sang a song called”He’s got the whole world in his hands”.

What a lovely assembly. Well done 1G!

4H Class Assembly

Today, (Friday 30th November) 4H performed their amazing first assembly of the year. Their performance was about the great  World War 1 -WW1– and what happened while people were at war. They began the assembly with a few interesting facts such as:

  • The war ended on the 11th day off the 11th month of the 11th hour.
  • The soldiers lived in the stenching muddy trenches.

Then, some pupils from the class read out parts of their fabulous diaries and letters. After that, 4H showed us some fantastic artwork that looked like it was created by a real artist. The pictures were based on a silhouette of a soldier standing in a field full of poppies. The background was a water colour wash of a sunset.

The children sang us some songs from the First World War. The songs were called: It’s a long way to Tipperary and Pack up your troubles in your own kit bag. It was a really good assembly and we can’t wait to see their next one!

2S Class Assembly

Today, 2S performed an amazing assembly all about the book that they had been learning in class. They told us that it was all about teamwork and so linked to our school motto of ‘Together we can’. It was so good that people clapped regularly throughout it and there were lots of laughs. Linked to the theme of different coloured crayons, they sang two fantastic songs about the colours of the rainbow. Their singing was very clear and lovely to listen to.

They acted out the story with children dressed as the crayons! Each of the crayons read out the letter they had written to the little boy who used them. These letters were funny! 2S explained about working together during sports day and cheering/motivating each other so showed that they had learnt from the teamworking in their book.

It was a very good assembly everyone spoke clearly, fluent and loud so everyone could hear them!

Well Done 2S!

3R Class Assembly

This afternoon, 3R performed a fabulous assembly for Blakehill, all based on the Stone age and the periods of prehistory (Stone age, Bronze age, ice age and iron age) , which means before written history. First came the Ice age, where huge glaciers were formed and the people had to move away, because of the ice. Eventually, once the ice had melted and gone, the humans moved back but discovered that things had been moved beneath the ice and glaciers. The people of the ice age were hunters and found their supplies theirselves.

They told us all about the other different stages, including the stone age, where they crafted tools from stone and were hunter gatherers, who were always moving around to new places. This stage of prehistory was supposedly the time of ‘early man’, where they wore animal skins for clothing, and painted cave art on the walls of their caves to show they existed later on in the future, and to also communicate, as words and communication was still developing. For food, they killed deer and other animals like that, saving the skin, and eating and storing the meat for meals.

They told us a little bit about the bronze age, where all supplies were crafted of bronze, and was an easy material to get hold of. This was similar to the iron age, where iron was a main source for tools and supplies, and the people lived in Hill Forts.

Next, they set the scene by comparing the modern to the past, where most people nowadays have ipads and ipods and iphones, which are used for pretty much every day of our lives. The prehistoric stages were very different though as they were crafting all day long and trying to thrive in the dangerous wilderness.

To finish off their fantastic assembly, the class sang We Will Rock You with a stone age twist! They gave many interesting facts and everybody learnt alot from their assembly, as well as enjoying it! Well done 3R!

4L class Assembly

Today,was 4L’s class assembly about their trip to Nell Bank and about what they did whilst there . They had a Countryfile theme with presenters interviewing their minibeast and pond dipping experts. These experts told us what they had caught such as a dragon fly nymph and newt. They also told us about how they had built dens and gone on a long walk up to Ilkley Moor. They then started to sing a song that they learnt at Nell Bank by Jack and John who were their teachers. It sounds like they had a wonderful time and it was a very interesting assembly.

5R Class Assembly

Today, 5R performed an astounding assembly that blew the brains out of heads and ears of all those that watched.They had a whale of a time. It included made up songs, phenominal dancing and more!

They began by retelling the story of the foolish man (that was their world book day story), who had an argument with his wife and left for a bit to even things out. On his travels, he met many peculiar people who all had problem. Some problems were pointless like trying to get a buffalo on top of a roof in order eat the weeds and grass. He helped to solve their problems by exchanging work for cash. Eventually, (after helping many people) he returned with lots of money. Having learnt about this, they wrote their own versions although they were about a foolish woman!

Then came a song, it was I got the feeling but fractions created by Hollie and Maya! This was because they had been learning them in class. They performed it fantastically and they got a huge round of applause. Soon after mentioning fractions, they did Indian dancing which they learnt during world book week! It was amazing and just as good as the people who do it.

6R’s Class Assembly

Today, 6R performed their class assembly about Vikings, where we learnt about what they had got up to over the last couple of weeks. After a little bit of speaking, they sang a song called He-Ho with some actions that Mrs Russell had been teaching them. It was very interesting and the audience loved it!

Next up a group of people, Amelia, Spencer and Kyle, spoke and we all learnt something new about the Vikings. Did you know they didn’t have horns on helmets? Who’d have thought it! They sang yet another song and 2 people came in with a Viking long boat!
Some of the vikings raided England and not many people got along, this caused many wars and there was three main battle. 6R showed this war by having  people fighting. The kings were often fighting and King George the Viking leader won. He did this by surrounding them and starving them until the other king gave in and they split the land.

Songs were sang at the end of the assembly and everyone clapped. It sure was an assembly to remember it was brilliant!
