5HJ class assembly

Today, 5HJ did their class assembly all about Ingleborough Hall.

It started off with the first group talking about what happened when they got there. What happened? First, they unpacked, got their dormitories ready and had lunch. For lunch they had, sandwich, crisps, yogurt and a drink.

Next, a couple more people stood up and talked about the Show Cave. They talked about stalactites and stalagmites that where in the cave. The guide said that two men discovered the cave a very long time ago.

Then the rest of the children talked about what they did and it was really interesting. It must of been a great trip!

An amazing day at Blackpool for Year 6

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.

The Food Bank Assembly

HARVEST TIME. This afternoon, we went in to assembly to watch a food bank presentation and we were asked to bring in food to help people who aren’t as lucky as we are.

The lady was a volunteer in the food bank and she came and explained what foods we should bring in. She said we should bring in canned food and long lasting food. The only thing is that they don’t have fridges or freezers so we can’t have anything that goes in either.

We think we are lucky not to have to worry about food and will try to help those who need it.

Macmillan Coffee Morning!

The Macmillan coffee morning was an amazing experience for both children and their loving parents. It raised a astonishing amount of money approximately over 2500 pounds during the morning which was orchestrated by Mrs Pedley. This was one of the most best attended coffee morning Blakehill has ever organized and we are very proud!

Mrs Watson, who is a parent at our talented school, generously and single-handedly organized a jewelry cleanse in order to raise more money for cancer research. Also there was raffle, where a young boy won a Porsche experience, his name is Gurneet! Enjoy!

Thank you to everyone who came to our marvellous morning and helped make it such a success!

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.
