The PTFA need our help to make our school fayre a fantastic success this Christmas! It is taking place on Monday the 11th of December 2017 3:30pm – 5pm.
One of their main aims is to create fantastic memories for the children of our school. Due to this, after a lot of preparation, they have decided to bring back a big annual event – the Christmas fayre! As this is the first time in a few years that it has been on, they are hoping it will be a big success.
It is free for children and £1 for adults. The money raised will go towards stationary, books for the new year, reading books and other things to help them to continue to improve our school. We would like to ask for certain year groups to bring things in.
Reception: cakes, buns or biscuits for the Christmas cafe home-made would be nice!
Year 1,2 & 3: chocolate for the chocolate tombola anything chocolate eg: sweets, bars, drinking chocolate, chocolate spread YUM!
Year 4,5&6: bottled anything for the bottle tombola any shape and size UNOPENED.
Lost property will be placed in the hall on Wednesday next week straight after school. Lost property is a collection of all the belongings children in this school may have lost at some point this year, it could be a jumper or a PE kit or anything else that could be lost. If your’re child has lost anything throughout the school year come along and have a look to see if you can find it!
Any items that are left will be taken and washed by the PTFA and sold the following week to raise money for the school which could be used for anything for the new school year. I hope you find your lost things.
Tomorrow, the floorless people of the PTFA have blown us off our feet with yet another impressive Summer Fair. Each year we have one and they have topped it each time. This year we have some amazing stalls that will be really fun and enjoyable! You might like to go and play on the tin can alley or you could test your luck with a name the bear. These are some stalls that might also suit you : hook a hoop, good as new book stall, jar tombola, bottle tombola and general tombola (there will be some more shops) and if you like you can test your skills with Mr Lowe, the most fierce goalie you have ever met. If you feel like being in theme of the fair, pirates and princesses, you can take part in a treasure hunt and if you are chosen best dress you get to walk in the parade, plus a prize! First prize is 1 hour bowling and second is free entry to Funopolis.
For your entertainment, you will have a cheer-leading team called Sonic Boom, performing at 1:35pm. Pro-Elite football skills will be going on all day. The school choir , who have kindly agreed to sing at 2:20pm, will be wowing you with their singing skills, singing some fun songs you may recognise. We hope we will be seeing you there tomorrow and make sure to wear your best princess or pirate costume! We hope you enjoy your day and we are crossing our fingers that it doesn’t rain!

This week, the PTFA sent home order forms for the mothers day stall that will be taking place next Friday! These slips give you an option of 4 different presents for your mother which include a wrapped carnation flower with foliage, a butterfly mirrored glass tea-light holder, patterned glass mirrored tea-light holder and my mum & me photograph frame. These objects cost the amount of £2.00 each and in order to buy one you must fill out a preference sheet by put a number 1 to 4 next to each gift (1 being your favourite choice).Children from the same family may list their order preferences on one form.
We are sure your Mums and loved ones will love their gifts almost as much as you!
Finally the time has arrived…our new, amazing, wonderful and bright kits are here! The sun kiss yellow coloured shirts and dreamy sky blue shorts shone bright like jewels when Mrs Russell opened the huge black bag they arrived in! To model how wonderful our new kit is we have a glamorous assistant called Emily Mae! She had her picture taken this afternoon to show you all our wonderful new sports kit, which you can see at the bottom of this post. We would all like to thank our amazing PTFA who very kindly sponsored the kit by covering the full cost. Keep posted for photographs of the jackets, which are still to arrive, and any pictures of our wonderful sports teams wearing them at any upcoming events.
This week, on Wednesday 15th, we had our Pyjama Disco. It was amazing to see how many children came to have fun and dance to the amazing songs that the DJ had put on to listen to. Many children came to dance and sing along but they also ate the yummy food the PTFA provided for the disco. We would also like to thank the wonderful parents that also took part in the disco by selling the food. We had two parts in the disco, one was KS1 and the other KS2. Both discos were in the same place but they were at different times to make sure it wasn’t too busy. Many children were very tired after all of the dancing and singing along to music and their bellies were full after the hot dogs and sweets they could buy.
Thank you for everyone who took part and helped out! We hope you enjoyed the disco and can’t wait for the next one!
Next Wednesday (the 15th of February) Blakehill are hosting a Cosy Pyjama Disco! It is £2 entry, KS1 and Reception starts at 5:00pm – 6:00pm and KS2 is 6:15pm – 7:15pm. You can come in your pyjamas, dressing gown and slippers (so cosy!) and don’t forget your teddy! We will have disco, fun and games all throughout the hour, not only this but we will have yummy hotdogs,cookies,juice and treats on sale!
At the end of the disco, all children will be escorted to the KS1 doors where parents should be waiting in the playground for them. Children will not be allowed to go into the car park to meet parents and no child will leave the school gates unaccompanied. If you are staying with your child please make sure that you stay in the hall as we are trying to keep the corridors as clear as we can.
If possible, can Reception and KS1 only attend their disco and KS2 attend theirs. Don’t forget to bring your teddy and wear your cosy pyjamas and dressing gowns. We hope you enjoy it and look forward to it!
On Tuesday and Thursday, all of the children at Blakehill had the chance to visit the PTFA Christmas shop! This is where you can buy gifts for your family! There were mugs(with small toys in), notebooks all in different colours, some pairs of socks and even some gifts of hand cream! They were £2 each and they all looked amazing in their wrapping paper! They were all bought, wrapped and sold by the PTFA. Thank you to Mrs Williams who gave up a lot of her own time to come in and make the Christmas shop such as success! By the end of the 2 days they had sold out of a number of the items and they made a lot of money for our school! All of the money that is made helps fund all of the trips like Robinwood and Ingleborough, the children wouldn’t be able to go on them without the PTFAs help! Thank you very much to everyone for their help.
The PTFA organised for an amazing theatre group to come to Blakehill this weekend to perform a wonderful show for us! There was laughter, joy and a Pasha, a little girl in year two found the key -that must have been great! There were lots of songs in it where we had to clap as Alice sang. She even performed a great a solo. I personally thought the dances were the most up beat bit of it and exciting part of it. It was an amazing experience and I hope a lot of people have made memories and will never forget. I think if you do though they will be back soon!
At the start of the show Alice was playing hide and seek then his sister said “do you want to read?” she said ”no I don’t like books with no picture I think they’re boring.” She was very wrong as all of a sudden she saw the most peculiar thing – a white rabbit with a watch! It disappeared in a flash so she went to the tree and saw a hole in the bottom of it very curiously went down the hole and lots of crazy thing happened…
It was a brilliant treat to begin the start of the year. Thank you PTFA!
