Yr 4 trip to Nell bank top tips

Mollie is going to Nell Bank next week so I am giving her some tips!

At Nell bank there’s lots of fun things explore. You do many different activities like my favorite thing was the playground. Mollie has been to Nell Bank before for school linking and she loved the scavenger hunt.

Are the beds cozy?

Yes there are bunk beds and they’re really nice and comfy.

Is it fun,exciting and enjoyable?

Yes it’s really good and if you don’t go then you’ll regret it. You get to spend a lot of time with your friends and explore all day. The adventure park is the best!

How long does the walk go on for?

We go for 14 miles in total and 6 hours.

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.

Ivy

Hi,

I’m Ivy I think I will be a good blogger because I like to print and play Python on the computer therefore I should be a great blogger. Also I am pretty clever at scratch because I was the only one who could make a deafening baa. It was so loud that the whole ICT suite could hear it and I told people to put it on if they dared and wierdly they did! I was so confused. I made it super loud and my friends were so scared because it only happened every ten seconds THEN I made it even louder! This is what made me super confused…Mrs Ross put them on. That was my digital leader training.

We made posters to become a blogger. This is what happened to my 1st poster. I made a piece of paper that said “I want to be a blogger” I am so glad my family member wrote and put coffee on it. This meant I needed to make another one. I actually tried on this one so I wrote ” I want to be a blogger because I like python” in capitals and in different colours. I also did smiley faces and diagonal lines in orange.

New Teachers

On Wednesday, all the pupils in school met their brand new teachers!

Reception got either Mrs Wardell or Miss Gardener. Year 1 discovered it would be either Mrs Scott or Mrs Pinder. Year 2 got Mr Rhodes or Mrs Roberts. Year 3 got Mr Hodges or Miss Philips. Year 4 got Mrs Hall until Miss Javed comes back or Miss Lancaster. Year 5 got Mr Sidebottom until Miss Russell comes back or Mrs Gould.

On the same day, Year 6 went to their secondary schools. They spent a whole day there while we spent 45 minutes talking about: what we do, what we’re excited about and some classes also did some activities to get ready for next year.

We’re all looking forward to starting with our brand new teachers next year.

Planetarium

On Monday, Blakehill discovered that it was space week and to start off the week they got to have fun and learn about the huge and fascinating area around them.

All of the year groups got to go into the gigantic planetarium and find out different things about space. Reception got to go in first, and when they came out, they were really happy and excited to have learnt about space and what its like outside of our world. All of the years had a turn and had a fantastic time.

Finally, it was Year 6’s turn and when they went inside they saw lots of stars in the deep, dark sky. They felt like they were in space already. In there, they saw 2 two planets that looked like stars but were actually two of the biggest planets in the solar system. Year 6 managed to identify them because they were the only things that weren’t flickering. All the children also learnt about constellations, the shapes stars make in the sky, and spent time trying to identify them which was both a challenge and great fun.

Everyone enjoyed the planetarium and it was a great introduction into the space focus where children will produce pieces of writing around the theme for display.

Our World Conference

This week, three lucky children, from both Year 4 classes, have been chosen to go Bradford Town Hall to take part in a conference about sustainability goals. The conference was all about the Earth, how to look after it. The children from different schools presented about their chosen goal. The way that the children were picked out was that the their names were put in a hat before being randomly drawn.

Before the visit, the children designed their own logos which were to be put onto a shirt, which they could keep, that would be worn in the presentation.

On the day, a bus collected them in the morning before going around to collect the other schools. When they arrived, they were treated to a tour of the building before getting into presentations.

All of the children from Blakehill did really well and will remember the day for a long time.

Father’s day stall

This year, Blakehill Primary have put on another Father’s day stall for the people who wish to get their father a present. As usual, there are three fantastic options for you to but you can only get one of them.

The first item that you could buy was a Where’s Wally soap on a piece of string which was on a loop so that you can hang it on anything. The second item was a brand spanking new leather wallet that comes in ether brown or black. Last but not least was a pair of brand new socks that have minion puns sewn onto it. To get one you had to write down your name and class then your options that you would write them down as 1,2;3. `1 is the soap on a piece of string, 2 the leather wallets and 3 is the socks with the minion puns. Personally, I would put the order in the following : 2,3 and then 1 although it is an extremely hard choice.

To purchase your desired item you had to stick two pound coins in or take it in in an envelope with your name and class on.
