Our New Year’s Resolutions

Every New Year, people in Blakehill think about their new year’s resolutions for the next year. We all then, that year, try and complete the resolutions we chose.

Some of the resolutions we chose included:

  • Go to the gym
  • Help my parents more
  • Be kinder to other children
  • Get to know my neighbours better

Most of these were our resolutions. We all hope that this year we complete them.

Year 1 and 2 Nativity

The assembly was perfect as the children were so cute and surprisingly knew their lines top to bottom! These children were absolutely astonishing and always had a humongous smiles across their faces 24/7 .The performance was named “I am going to shine” and of course they shone in a way that can not be put into words.

The incomparable show, was a huge success which has made all of the parents and teachers proud! Not to count the number of proud family members and siblings! I personally enjoyed the song that was sung throughout the show as they all sung it in complete happiness and glee.

Mr Frowd Assembly

Today, in the afternoon, Mr Frowd visited our school to perform another amazing assembly (just like he always does.)

He started off with a joyful song all about Christmas day. It filled everyone with excitement and they were eager for another one to start.

After he had sang the song, he made all of us laugh by telling us what a normal person would do in Mary’s situation after discovering what was ahead of her.

He also talked about the gaps in the Christmas story which nobody noticed and that should have been filled in. At that point, everybody was laughing their heads off, he started to talk about how he wouldn’t have been calm in her situation.

Eventually, he ended his assembly by singing another song that calmed us down so we were ready to go back into class.

It was a really good assembly and we’re sure everyone will be itching to see it again.

The Princess Boy

On Friday the 6th of December, Mrs Keighley (our head teacher) held an inspirational assembly about a book called’ My Princess Boy’.

First, she played an amazing song that was named Rainbow-land by Mylie Cyrus. At the beginning, no-one knew the words to sing along but as it got going, lots of people started to join in with the wonderful lyrics.

When the song had finished, Mrs Keighley started reading a book called ‘My Princess Boy’. It was based around the theme ‘Don’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover’.

We thought this was a good assembly as it taught us not to judge people for being themselves.

I ( Mollie) thought that it was great for younger children because of the moral behind it. I ( Eleanor ) thought that this assembly was a brilliant example for kids to not judge people for what they look or sound like. I ( Ruby ) thought that it was a brilliant assembly.

The Christmas Fair

On Tuesday, in the school Hall, we had a very fun and exciting evening at the Christmas fair. It was a jam packed event with lots of fantastic things to do. In addition to the all, in some classrooms we had things like Santa’s Grotto, which had lots of eager children waiting, decorating biscuits, hook a bauble and other fun things to do.

In the Hall, there were drink tombolas, a chocolate tombola and a sweetie stall. At the other side, there was a table where you could get hot drinks and buns. It sounds tasty! At the chocolate tombola, many goods were there to be won. Mr Sidebottom described the event as manic!

Did you go? Well you should have!

Everyone had a fantastic time and really got into the Christmas spirit. We hope to have another fair next year.

Open Classroom Day

On Tuesday, every class in the school allowed parents to come in and observe the classroom and look at their books.

Most of the classes had iPads , floor books and a chance to write how they think their child should behave on a post-it note . The purpose of the iPads was to show off the fantastic class pages each class have on the school website.

All the parents enjoyed looking at the books and the fabulous hard work in them. They were very proud and loved that we did lots of work. Overall, we think that this was a great idea to do this and that everyone enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. .

Good Luck Miss Dobson!

This week has been a very upsetting one because our fantastic PE teacher, Miss Dobson, is leaving!

Since she came here, she has been doing clubs, multi sports, competitions, PE, and been swimming with last year’s Year 4. Miss Dobson joined Year 6 on their adventures at Robin Wood last year.

She’s being leading these activities for one and a half years and now sadly she is leaving to get a different job, in Leeds,which hopefully she will enjoy and thrive in.

We have loved having Miss Dobson make our PE lessons so fun and action packed. She is funny and has really helped us become more confident.

Good Luck Miss Dobson!

Woodwind musical assembly

Yesterday, Cobalt Brass, a woodwind band, came in to show us what they could do all the way from Manchester.

At first, they played some tunes and we had to guess what the song was. After that, they introduced themselves and their instruments as each one of them went into center stage. They taught us what their instruments can do and the different parts which make it up.

Then we played a game with Farmer Joe and had to guess the which animal he was making the sound of. Since we guessed them all right, we got one last song which was fantastic.

We all loved them coming in and it was a lovely and interesting assembly.

Year 2 trip to Idle church

On Wednesday, Year 2 went to the church in Idle where they met Mr and Mrs Frowd. Firstly, they read the Bible but they had to wear white gloves. They then looked at other things that are precious to Christians like the thorn crown and wine glasses.

After that, the children got a little rest before learning about new things. They first got told to sit on the floor and listen very carefully before the person started telling a story about Mary Jones. She wanted a bible but she couldn’t because there were non in welsh. So she walked 25 miles just to get a bible in welsh. She was also saving money for 6 whole YEARS!

It sounded like a fascinating trip and we’re sure Year 2 had a great time!

On Monday, Year 2 went to Saltaire . Once they got off the bus in Saltaire, they dropped there lunches of in Victoria Hall.they went to the church where they saw the people who worked there dressed up a if they were alive when Titus salt was.

They also got a bookmark of people who lived there with there names on it and information. They looked for main things to do with these people as they went round.

Once they had finished at the church, they walked in the village of Saltaire and visited the houses of the people on their book marks. In Saltaire they found four lions which they attempted to sketch.After they had their lunch they continued to explore. The children had a great time exploring a local area and learning about its history.
