Today Year 6 had a special PE session! It involved Frisbee’s!
They had 4 TEAMS and the teams were pink , blue , green and red . They had to learn 3 rules and they were:
- 3 second to pass the Frisbee,
- you can only drop it 5 times
- only front passes
There was red vs green and blue vs pink.Overall everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. We can’t wait until it’s our turn!

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.

Today, on the 4th of October, Year 6 went on an incredible trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Both classes 6G and 6SR went.
Year 6 headed there to develop their team building skills, ability to work together and learn life skills by exploring a big place. They went on lots of fun and scary rides. Don’t worry though, you didn’t have to go on all of them because if you were scared of heights, nobody forced you! One of the scariest [but most enjoyable rides] was the Pepsi Max and I am sure most of the kids wanted to go on it.
I’m sure Year 6 had lots of fun there and that it was an amazing time.
Year six went to a hockey camp in Hanson with Mrs Dobson to perfect their hockey skills and compete against other teams. The boys did really well in winning most of there games because of great teamwork. Mrs Dobson said that if we win in our next games, we will qualify for the Bradford winter games at Bradford Grammar School! How exciting! Good luck at your next meet boys!
I am Taylor and I am a Blakehill blogger. I enjoy eating biscuits, playing Minecraft and going to museums. I adore Beamish which is an open air museum near Durham. Once, I met Nick Sharrat who is Jaquline Wilson’s illustrator he drew hetty feather who is my favorite character.
On Thursday after school, Miss Dickinson organised a fabulous art exhibition. Mrs Marsden helped the pupils produce their amazing space art work.
Mrs Marsden helped: reception, y1, y2, y3, y4, y5 and y6. All the parents thoroughly enjoyed seeing all their children’s art.
Reception did a moon with a background, Year 1 did a rocket blasting off to space, Year 2 did colour washers and glitter, Year 3 did moving spacemen on the moon, Year 4 did planets, Year 5 did some art, Year 6 did rockets.
See the art curriculum page on our website to see the amazing work they did!

On the 9th of July, children were sent down to the hall to watch the very last assembly by Year 6.
The stage was up, the lights were out, and everyone was quiet. Nobody had known what they were doing until now, they were doing ‘Albie’. Albie was the male version of ‘Annie’.
As you should know, the story follows a young child called Annie (or in this case Albie) who was abandoned at an orphanage by her parents when she was a baby. Her family left a locket and a note saying they would come back for her. She then spends her whole life searching for her family until she meets a rich and famous man called Mr Worbucks (or Mr Stacks for the modern version.) It is a great film and I recommend you watch it.
The whole of Year 6 (both 6G and 6R) worked as hard as they could to make this production perfect, and it was all worth it.
It was full of singing, dancing jokes and more. There wasn’t a single person that forgot their lines or what scene they were in. Everyone was simply brilliant!
It was a lovely production and all children and adults loved it.

LAST BLOG EVER NOOOOOOOOO
This week, ( on Wednesday ) Year 6 got the opportunity to attend a transition day where they would get to be at their school for one day. Children who will be going to Hanson and Immanuel went to explore their new schools for one day only!
Luckily, at our blogging club we have 2 children that attended the transition day and we can tell you that eventhough it was little scary at first it was amazing!
We will miss Blakehill when we leave but can’t wait to start our new adventures.
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.
Today, Year 6 woke up early for a filling breakfast before getting straight into the activities. To start with, it was the crate challenge which required cooperation followed by archery which was a test of accuracy. After that, they took part in a range of activities including rock climbing, the big swing and the trapeze. It’s been another action packed day and again we cannot wait for final activities tomorrow.
