Hate crime assembly

Earlier this week, two very nice people (Pat and Kate) did an assembly (for KS2) about hate crime and its effect on others. Hate Crime is where someone is harassed or attacked for racial, religious or cultural differences.

Pat and Kate started off by letting us guess who liked certain things, such as rugby, and they did that to prove that you should not judge a person by how they look.

After that, they talked about our differences and our different religions and how people may not believe in the same things.

We then watched a video with an example of hate crime that showed us how to deal with it. The best thing to do is to immediately tell a trusted adult who can then help you deal with the situation.

It was a really informative assembly and we appreciate the time they gave up to come and speak to us.

5R’s class assembly

On Wednesday, Year 5 performed a brilliant class assembly. They told us all about what they have been learning in class.

Their assembly was all about a poem named the Highway Man.They begun by reading the first few lines of the poem. It started by them setting the scene of a old inn yard at night and the highway man coming riding down to the inn yard. He then whispered to the inn keeper’s daughter who was plaiting a red love knot in to her long, dark, black hair. It was an assembly full of drama and excitement.

Well done 5R!

2S Class Assembly

This afternoon, 2s performed a wonderful, creative assembly all about the artist Claude Monet. They even had Claude himself here to talk to us and look at their art work.

We were taught facts all about his life, shown how they worked to create their own pieces of art like Monet did and spoken to in french!

To finish their assembly, they performed a marvellous dance to sur le pont d’avignon.

It was a great, confident and informative assembly. Well done 2S!

3Ro’s assembly

On Friday the 14th of June Year 3 did an assembly all about prehistoric age. They explained many things about what the stone age people did and what they learnt from it. Also they made a comparison of what we live like today and what the stone age people lived like.

They started off by introducing the assembly and showed us cave paintings that archaeologists had found. They told us that the drawings had a meaning behind them and what they thought the meaning was. All of the drawings were all very different, they showed us a picture of a deer, bison and many more.

They then went on to showing us where they lived. They taught us that the houses looked and were made very differently to our houses today. They were made out of different materials. They also compared what they dressed like as well.

At the very end they sang a stone age song (we will rock you).

Everyone enjoyed the assembly.

NSPCC

This week, Blakehill have had a visit from the child protection centre called the NSPCC. They came all the way to our school to talk about speaking out and staying safe.

They showed all of the children different forms of abuse such as: physical abuse, bullying, emotional abuse etc. The two visitors told us all about how much our worries can affect us and how small things can make a big difference.

They also showed us an animation all about a small girl who had been experiencing worrying things with her family at home. To help herself, she called the child line number (08001111) and asked for help. After that, things started getting better for her.

Finally, they explain to us that calling Childline was nothing to worry about. To represent this they showed a stop motion animation all about it.

It was a really informative assembly and everyone learnt a lot.

3R class assembly

This afternoon, 3R did an assembly about the present life and Stone Age life and how different the lives were.

At the beginning, they all talked about the Iron Age, Bronze Age and Stone Age. Bravely, some of the children stood up and acted out being prehistoric humans and present day people. We learnt that stone age people didn’t know what metal was and they didn’t know what a smartphone was because they didn’t have that kind off stuff back then. They all showed us their amazing art work and stone necklaces. They signed us out by singing We Will Rock You but the caveman edition! They did a brilliant assembly and we enjoyed learning loads of facts about cavemen!

1W’s Class Assembly

On Friday 17th of May, Year 1 performed an assembly about their trip to Skipton Castle. They explained about how the castle was made and how people used to live in it.

First they started off by introducing the assembly and showed pictures of the front of the castle and told us about the features on it. They spoke about the different rooms and places inside and outside of the castle. Their favourite place in the building was the dungeon because it was dark,cold and scary.

1W were taught where to build a castle by their instructor: they told us that you needed to build it near a river so that enemies couldn’t get to it. It also had to be built with high walls so that no enemies could climb over them. Finally towards the end they sang a song about castles.

What an enjoyable and informative assembly! Well done 1W.

Drumming concert

On the 28th of March, some brave pupils performed in-front of the whole school some amazing drumming. They have been having lessons for 20 minutes in the previous weeks leading into this day.

Starting the assembly off, Mrs Scott introduced the assembly and what they would be doing throughout. It started with Elana (who is in 4h) and Amber playing a warm up solo which was followed by some brave Year 2 children who performed the backing track from a song by Taylor swift. After that Elijah, played a solo with the two teachers. Other children from across school also performed which was equally fantastic.

The lady in charge explained frequently the benefits of drumming and how they can link to the classroom. One of them was that drumming improves concentration as you have to focus on what you are doing and ignore distractions. At the end of the assembly, everyone clapped loudly as they all greatly enjoyed it.

Thankfully, we learnt that the drumming sessions are going to continue after the holidays and everybody is hoping they are the next child to get a go!
