Bradford City Penalty

Today, Friday 24th, Paul, a guy from a Bradford City fundraising charity came to school just before the end of the day. He explained about the penalty shoot out, which is February 13th, and all the prizes your child can win!

The Prizes

For three pounds you can get a Bradford city medal and for ten pounds you can get a pump bag and a medal. You can also get a football and a medal for twenty pounds. For all of them it is thirty pounds. The grand prize is all of them but there is a Bradford city signed football signed by all of the players. This will be won by the person who raises the most sponsor money.

The Shoot Out

When it comes to the day, everyone will be taking a shot against the famous Billy Bantam, who’s also known as the Bradford city mascot, we will take one penalty anyway but if your bring your form in, you get four! So bring them forms in children! We already can’t wait to see Billy.

Year 3 trip to Bradford Cathedral.

On Monday, Year 3 went on a school trip to Bradford Cathedral. They went to learn about all of the signs and symbols in their work about Christians.

They did a booklet about it and today we will tell you the facts inside it. They learnt that Christians follow the light and that light brings them closer to God. Also that the different colours of an altar cloth mean different things.

Green-an ordinary time

Purple-preparation for an important time

Gold-festival time

Red-a special time

At the end of there book they got to draw a picture of Mark the winged Lion.

It sounds like they had a fantastic time and learnt lots!

Rock Steady Workshop

On Thursday, Rock Steady visited our school and led forty five minute sessions with each key stage. They taught us how to play some instruments. There were drums, a keyboard, an electric guitar and two microphones for us to sing in.

At the start, ( whilst everyone was coming in ) Michael played us some well known songs. Everyone was clapping along and we were all enjoying it even though it hadn’t even hardly started .

Once this was over, he told us about Rock Steady and picked some children to come up and play the instruments. This was the extremely fun part! This was to the song We Will Rock You. It didn’t matter if you messed up or if you had never played them. Did you know two of them were brother and sister who played together? It was really good to watch!

It sounds like all of the children had lots of fun and we really enjoyed it.

Marvellous ME

Marvellous me is new advanced system that Blakehill now uses to give feedback to parents about how marvelous their child has been. This app allows parents to receive updates about their child without having to come into school.

It is a brilliant app as our parents have received excellent information about us. The best part is that the teachers are not allowed to give negative feedback ( not that there is ever is any).This is awesome!

The app is now used by the whole school after Reception trialed it before Christmas and found it fantastic. So that is why the school is now using it. Personally, we find it an outstanding improvement for the school and can’t wait to receive more messages.

6G Assembly

This afternoon, 6G performed a fantastic assembly about micro-organisms, the story of Edward Jenner and 6G’s New Years Resolutions.

First, they talked about micro-organisms. Micro-organisms are things that are all around you, they are even on your clothes!

Edward Jenner was a person who discovered the cow pox cure. He also was a scientist who worked on different people including a young boy and a farmer girl. Eddie was very curious and decided to investigate if there was cure. And in the end, he succeeded and solved the cure! This is how he became famous. That easy!

6G’s New Year resolution were then shared and some examples are like being better at football, better hand writing and lots of other things. We hope they manage to achieve them!

Year 1 and Reception reading morning

Every Wednesday morning, Reception will ask their parents if they can spare some time and come read with them! Every Thursday morning, Year 1 will try and convince their parents to come in to school and read with their children.

The Children get a selection of books to pick out with parents. The parents asked questions about the book and the parents are always impressed with the answers. It sounds a great idea as we all know how important reading is!

Overall, we now know that the children enjoyed their time reading to their parents!

Mr Hodges’ Hueys assembly

On Tuesday morning, Mr Hodges presented an assembly called The Huey’s New Jumper. We all enjoyed the assembly and we learnt lots about stereotypes. Everybody thought they were cute!!!!

Rupert, the main Huey, made a big difference from looking the same and doing the same things. All the Hueys did the same, ate the same and looked the same but Rupert wanted to be different. At home, he knitted his own jumper. He celebrated his differences by wearing it outside. Not all of them were happy about this .

Soon after one of them joined in, then more then did, then they all did and they were all the same again. We learnt that it is okay to be different and that it is important to do whatever makes you happy and feel comfortable. Even if that may mean being ‘different’.

The New Year

I myself and the other bloggers are happy for this new year (and decade). As we are turning a new leaf, I wanted to talk about new year’s resolutions.

There are many types of resolutions like ones for school, for home and ones for yourself. As you can see, there are many different types but for some reason I always have the same one and it never lasts the full year. To be nice to my brother! However, this year I had another resolution on my mind after I broke the first one 2 minutes in. My new resolution is to stay vegetarian as I slipped a bit in 2019. This year I am hopefully going to stick to my promises.

I hope you have had a good start to 2020.
