Ofsted visits Blakehill!

On the 15th & 16th of January, Blakehill had visit from Ofsted. They wanted to inspect our school. We were all on our best behaviour (like always) hoping that they would be as impressed with our school as we are.
The report states … “All groups make good progress“, “Pupils make good progress because teaching is good“, “The school’s safeguarding procedures are highly effective“, “Governors know the school well and share the clear vision of senior leaders“, “Behavior of pupils is good. It is a strength of the school and is at times outstanding”
Everyone is so proud of Blakehill! The Ofsted framework has changed alot since 2012 so “Good” is a huge achievement.  We are extremely proud of our school and are very pleased with our report.

Year 2’s Trip to The Chocolate Factory

On the 23rd January, Year 2 went on a trip to York, to visit the famous chocolate factory! They had a fantastic time, and enjoyed all the great activities that they did. The visit was to support the work they have been doing about Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

They learnt lots, but loved every minute too! They learnt about the long history of chocolate, and how it all started, as well as designing their own creative and cleverly made chocolate machines. Also, they made their very own Willy Wonka chocolate bars, which they all loved the best!

 

Water safety

On Wednesday 28th January a man, who knew all about water safety, came in to speak to year 4L and 4S about it. He spoke about all of the unsafe things around water outside like: a river, an outdoor swimming pool, the sea, a reservoir, and a pond. Once he finished the talk he told us about a competition that year 4 can enter. The competition is to design a poster to say why you must be safe around water. The winner will be rewarded with 12 free swimming lessons at Eccleshill swimming baths.

Christmas Stars in the Telegraph and Argus.

We are proud to say that our Reception and our KS1 Christmas performances were featured in the Telegraph and Argus over the festive period. The children and staff worked very hard on their performances and all their hard work paid off. They were all very happy when they had found out that they were in the Telegraph and Argus.
