Year 6 SATS

This week, both Year 6 classes have tried their very hardest to get the best scores they could possibly in their SATS.

Year 6 children were split into 3 groups. Unfortunately, the first group had to be in school by 8:00. On Monday, Year 6 had to face their biggest fart: Sats (hehehe). Firstly, they had to do the SPAG and the spelling test that had 20 questions. Both classes got through the tests with ease.

After that, they had their reading test. Most of Year 6 were worried about finishing this test , however it was easier than they thought. Lastly, they had their maths and arithmetic tests. After that, it was freedom!

Year 6 are now thinking about their ( hopefully ) fabulous production at the end of the year along with relaxing.

We hope that Year 6 have an amazing rest of the year ( without having to worry about tests 🙂 )

6G’s Class Assembly

This Friday, 6G performed an amazing class assembly all about fierce, brave vikings. At the start, while people entered the hall, music played when suddenly, they begun…

They all gave us a warm welcome just before we heard one person scream, “THE VIKINGS ARE COMING!” We all had a laugh and they started to sing a song called ‘Heave Ho’. After that, they all began telling us amazing facts, such as ‘ Vikings used ships called longboats,’ ‘Viking hats didn’t have horns,’ and ‘They would drink something called Mead out of something called a drinking horn.’ 

We were all impressed by how much they knew and how they managed to put so many facts into one assembly, some people even managed to read out some pieces of work (which were brilliant.)

At the end of the assembly, they all sung a song called ‘ Viking Rock ‘. To add to the entertainment, some people wore wigs and funny hats and they all did funny actions. Everyone laughed and had an amazing time at the assembly. Now none of us can wait for their huge production that should be at the very end of the school year.

Year 6 visit From PC Luke Carson.

On Thursday 31st of January, the pupils of Year 6 had a visit from the one and only Luke Carson (a local police constable).

To begin, Luke asked us what we knew about E-Safety. Then he showed us multiple slides on the types of games and websites that are appropriate for 10-11 year-olds. We discussed the games which we play on and Luke gave us suggestions about how to stay safe when we were playing these.

Young Voices 2019

This January, a group of children travelled the long journey to Sheffield arena to sing their hearts out at Young Voices. They started practising all the songs which were accompanied by different dance moves, that fit each tune. They did regular practises at least once a week so that they knew every song and all the dance moves. Wednesday 9th January was the day and the children were ready! They had to have two pack lunches one for their lunch and one for tea. They weren’t allowed fizzy drinks and lots of sweets because they could possibly throw up! When they arrived outside, they had to wait a little longer because they got there early. When they got in, they found their seats and got straight into munching on their lunch and going for toilet breaks.

While they were practising all the special guests were introduced. Unfortunately, Hugh Jackman couldn’t attend the concert! After the children had eaten everything in their bags the parents started to flood in. Once they all found their seats the lights went down and the person who organised the concert appeared on the stage and introduced all the band members and the school, but not every school because there were to many. At the end the same lady from the beginning mentioned that the parents had raised over 98 thousand pounds and said a massive thank you!

Choir sing at Bradford University Graduation

After months of hard work, Blakehill Choir (the greatest singers of all time) had their next appearance at Bradford University. For around four years, Blakehill Choir have been invited to sing at Bradford University Winter Graduation. Wowing the crowd with their angelic voices, they preformed on a stage singing: we three kings, infant holy, go tell it on the mountain and lots more.

However, we three king was sang by three soloists Macey, Leah and Myself (Emily). We sang through all of the songs twice. Half way through we go provided with snacks, which were delicious, I could have eaten it all again! We had a fantastic time and we can not wait to go back in Summer.

Year 6 Leavers Production

WOW, What a fantastic evening we had at school last night! If you hadn’t guessed, last night was the Year 6 leavers production for parents and they sure did put a show. For weeks the children have been working hard, practicing their roles for the big event and it really paid off. They put on a fantastic show and all the grown ups fully enjoyed themselves! The children really did themselves proud and even had Mrs Keighley in tears at the end. She spoke about how the children have made all the staff and parents proud throughout all their time at Blakehill and we couldn’t agree more. We wish them all the best as the move to their secondary schools and hope that they continue to work hard and do us proud. Don’t forget to come back and visit us anytime!

Here are a few picture from the night and a little sing along song from the show.

2017 Leavers Prom

Last night was the Year 6 leavers prom and it was a wonderful night for everyone that attended. The children made a real effort to get dressed up to come and have a good time with their friends before moving on to their secondary schools. Thank you to all the staff that made the evening possible. Please take a look at some of the pictures below.

Robinwood!

Last week, 41 Year 6 pupils got on a bus and travelled to Robin Wood activity centre for their jam-packed  3 day residential. It took them about 1 hour on the coach to get there. But when they arrived they couldn’t wait to get stuck in!

First, they had to walk 20 minutes just to get to the centre! Once they arrived they were shown to their dorms and had 20 minutes to unpack their things and get their kit bags ready for when they had a shower or after they got out of the piranha pool. After that, they were sorted into their groups including: Whirlpool,Ocean,Wave and Iceberg.Then were given all the activities that they would be doing over the next 3 days,which were:Giant swing(basically a bigger version of a swing that went much higher!), the Zipline, Piranha pool, Nightline, Knights Quest, Raft Building, Canoeing, Dungeon Of Doom, Caving, Crate Challenge, Trapeze and Rock Climbing!  Our favourite activities were: Giant Swing and Zipline!

The food was delicious and the dorms were very comfy to get to sleep in. We had our food in a beautiful dining room. Then for our sandwiches we went into the sports hall and got to choose what filling we wanted and chose a packet of crisps along with a blue ribbon biscuit.

Not to mention ,on the last night it was Megan’s birthday so, we got a piece of her tasty cake along with hot chocolate and a tune into Robin Wood Radio and listened to each group’s star of the day and why they chose them!

We all had an amazing time and made a lot of memories before we left!
