Westbourne Primary School Visit Blakehill

On Wednesday, Year 3 from Westbourne Primary School came to visit Year 3 at Blakehill as part of the School Linking Network. Throughout the day the children had a chance to take part in a number of team building activities to get to know their partners even more. There was a lot to do throughout the day, keeping everybody busy, such as; the egg drop challenge, designing your perfect school, QR code Trails and visible and invisible similarities and differences art work. It was a great day and everybody really enjoyed themselves, they even got the school field to themselves at lunchtime!

Goodbye Bloggers

Today was the last Blogging Club of the year. It was also the last ever for our Year 6 Bloggers.
We have to say a very sad goodbye to Jake and Rebecca who have been on our Blogging Team since the first ever meeting almost 2 years ago. Thanks to their hard work and dedication, they have helped our blog get 71,650 hits and it has been visited by 101 countries so far. They have come to the club after school every Friday and reported on everything that has happened in school. They have filmed assemblies and events, represented our school at an ICT conference, taken photos, interviewed staff, children and visitors and have also helped to train new members to the Blogging team. They have been fantastic bloggers and I will miss them a lot!

Libby, Jessica and Nell joined us recently but will also be leaving as they are leaving Blakehill. Thanks for all of your hard work guys! Our remaining bloggers, Ruby, Lily and Emily, will hopefully be staying on the Blogging Team next year and helping Mr Lowe to recruit some new members.
We had a little party to celebrate the end of the year.
Thank you again to the whole team of Bloggers – I am very proud of you and your hard work. Our blog is fantastic and it is all down to your commitment, hard work and dedication.
Love Mrs P x

Blue Day!

Today we have had  Blue Day! This is where we have been raising money for Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s is a disease that affects the brain. This causes the person’s movement and speech to slow down, making it hard to do simple, everyday things like walking hard. We raised money by bringing in a pound to dress in blue clothes and buying wrist bands that were also a pound.

Altogether we raised an absolutely amazing amount:£664.04!!!!

Thank you to everyone for your support and to Mrs Corbridge and Mrs Gardner for arranging the day.
