The walking Nativity

On Saturday, some of the choir will be doing St Cuthberts walking nativity.

The walking nativity is an event that St Cuthberts holds every year near Christmas time. What you do is walk for a bit and stop, then you do one part of the nativity to the next until baby Jesus is born. I wonder when where it will finish?

The children will start off in the church singing a few Christmas carols. After that, they will go walking around playing a part of the nativity. Don’t worry though they are going to be with an adult. Soon after dazzling the crowds, they will return home ahead of another performance in Morrisons next week .

The Idle light switch on

On Sunday, the choir will be performing a variety of songs at the Idle light switch on. This will be a magnificent event taking place at an unknown destination although we do know that we will meet at Idle car park opposite Mrs Butterfingers cafe. This is one our personal favorite cafes in the district of Idle.

The event will commence at 3:30 pm and will end at 5:00 pm. Unfortunately, our parents will have to accompany us during the event although we are still extremely excited . It will be totally awesome.

Please come and support our fantastic choir and we are sure you won’t be disappointed!

3RO Class Assembly

On Friday, 3Ro preformed an outstanding assembly all about the Industrial Revolution. We were all sat in our seat waiting for the excitement to happen.

First, a set of children did a little performance about what people had to do and for how long. There was one family where there was a little boy who wondered why he had to do his job which he didn’t like. It was a fair point!

When they got to work, one person had to sort the wool out, another person had to comb through the tangled wool and the last person had to weave the wool. The factories were always really loud and busy so they wouldn’t be a great place to work.

We all enjoyed it and we all walked out of the assembly with an amazing song to leave which was called the hard knock life.

Eden Camp!

On Tuesday, 4H and 4P went to Eden camp, all of us loved it but in the morning Ivy and I did not want to go and I will tell you why. We said to our self, “We do not want go!” but now we are glad we went and now Ivy will tell you what we did at Eden camp.

So first we arrived ,then we deposited our lunches at Mess Hut 3. After that, we went to the toilets and went in huts. My favorite hut was The U-Boats and Hannah liked The Blitz. In the Blitz, we saw burning and heard bombs going off. In the U-Boats, we were inside the submarines that had been attacked by the German’s U-Boats and were flooding and men/women needed to fix it so everyone else wouldn’t die. How terrible that would have been!

It was a really interesting day and we had a great time.

Year 3 School Linking

School linking is where Blakehill primary and West born meet together and become friends. The first meet up for this year’s Year 3 was on Thursday at Nell Bank in Ilkley. They took part in some fun activities like leaf pile building , orienteering and lots more that we can’t think of. The idea is to make friends with children from another school and a different area of Bradford.

On site, they developed their team building skills and had lots of fun. The children made new friends and cannot wait to meet them again later on in the year when both Year 3 classes meet again at both Blakehill and Westbourne.

Year 5 and 6 movie night

On Wednesday the 27th of November, upper key stage 2 (Year 5 and Year 6), had a movie night in the hall. There we watched Nativity and everybody found it hilarious, even people who didn’t think it would be funny laughed !

On the night, we got a range of drinks, sweets, chocolate, popcorn and crisps. They were very delicious and most people loved them. Other people liked them(not the same as loved). Once in the movie, Mr Sidebottom had to stop it to collect the rubbish. Everyone was a bit disappointed for some reason.I wonder why? But soon after, the film continued.

It was a great event and we hope to do it again.

Year 1 trip to Kirkstall Abbey

On Tuesday, Year 1 went to the Kirkstall Abbey house museum for a fun filled morning exploring and learning about toys. They took part in a workshop where they learnt about and compared new and old toys. They learned that old toys were made out of fabric, metal and wood while being hand made.

Now toys are made in factories out of wood, metal ,plastic and fabric and there are easier to buy now. Year 1 really enjoyed their day and they came back to school ready to learn.

Dress down day !

Today was absolutely traumatizing! I had to give away MY chocolate for a tombola. Who thought of this? This was bonkers. I felt as though someone ripped out my soul.

Anyway, it was worth it as we got to wear anything we desired for the price of a chocolate – big or small. This was not a lot due to the fact you could buy a pack of mini rolls and just take one out. I could have done this although I decided to be generous and give a giant Galaxy chocolate bar made up of six normal sized bars.

The chocolate was all donated for a worthy cause: our Christmas Fair! It will be available to win from our chocolate tombola stall.

Overall, it was a fantastic day : being able to wear clothes of our choice. We would happily part with more chocolate to do it again.

Blakehill Parents Evening

Tuesday and Thursday, were the days of parents evening. On these days, parents could come in and to talk to their child’s teachers to see what they have been doing in class. They also had the chance to discuss how hard their child has been working and if there was anything else they could do to help.

The teachers had very kindly put the children’s books on a desk outside the classroom so the parents could look at their book whilst they were waiting. In some classes, they had the floor book out to look at what exciting things the children have been doing.

After their wait, they could go in and the teachers talked about a range of things. Often, they talked about how their home reading was going, word mountains and TT rock stars.
