This year, Blakehill has held another stall for Mother’s day and they had four new things for children to choose and buy for their mothers. This year, the options were: a wooden heart plaque, Vanilla scented candle, Potted Daffodil and a Stationary set. With so many good options, it was a hard decision to make when deciding what our mums should get.
Each person received a letter where they could have a first choice, second choice, third choice and a fourth choice. They would write their name, class and choices before crossing their fingers and hoping for their first choice. It would cost them £2.00 for the present they had chosen. Whatever the present they got, we know it will please whoever they give it to.
Everyone can’t wait for mother’s day and the real reason for it is to thank any special lady in your life.

On Tuesday, our lovely, intelligent school PTFA put together a fun disco for the whole school to enjoy. As soon as letters were sent out, children were thinking about what to wear and how much of their parents money they could spend!
On the day of the disco, people waited outside of the office and payed £2 to get into the hall which was where the disco would commence. The hall was packed with children who were already dancing and having a great time. The DJ was always coming up with fun ideas to keep the children far away from boredom. In these games, you could compete for sweets. ( Haribos, marshmallows etc. ) Also, you could buy things such as : food, sweets , drinks and much much more!
All of the children had an amazing time dancing, playing games, chatting with friends and eating sweets. None of them can wait till the next school event.
Before I end this post, I would like to give a big thanks to the school PTFA for putting this event together for our school. They always put together brilliant events for the children of this school and they never fail to amaze us!

On the first week back, Year 5 and 6 had a brilliant surprise when they went to go see Aladdin at the Alhambra Theatre.
In the morning, Year 5 and 6 were loaded into three noisy buses. Once they had arrived, they excitedly took their seats and waited for the magical performance to begin. Not so long after they entered, the performance began. At the beginning, the the main bad guy appeared at the cave of wonders looking for the magical lamp and we all began to travel into the magical world of the performance. After the interval, we were all given 3D glasses and went on a magical ( yet scary ) carpet ride. A lot of the children loved Wishey who was played by Billy Pierce.
Daniel a Year 6 student said, “The show was hilarious! My favourite character was Wishey because he was funny and he made me laugh.”
None of this would of happened if it wasn’t for our lovely PTFA so here is a big thank you for our special treat.

On the 11th of December, Year 1 and 2 had a Christmas party in the school hall. During the event, prizes were won, food was eaten and party games were played such as musical statues, musical bumps, pass the parcel and corners. It was so much fun! The food that was available to eat was; buns, pizza, sweets and many more (Yum!) Key Stage one had very full tummies and smiley faces by the end!
As a surprise for the children, the one and only Santa Claus took a trip to visit them! The children were extremely excited and can only hope he visits again on the 25th! They had a fantastic time that we are sure they will never forget.

The fayre had different stalls and tombolas that had a variety gifts. Some of the stalls had scrumptious treats that everybody ate and enjoyed. Also there were many raffles, lucky dips and tombolas that most of the people took part in . Some lucky people won the prizes so congratulations to them.
Santa took a visit to Blakehill to see whether the children were naughty or nice. He gave out many chocolates and sweets to the children at the fayre ( some of the adults too! )
Aminah who went to the fayre said ” it was a great time and I would do it again ”
Non of this would happen if it werent for the PTFA who helped to put all of this together.

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.
