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.

Blakehill’s Got Talent 2017

This afternoon we had our live final of Blakehill;s Got Talent and what a fantastic show it was. Below are the videos of all the entries. Class have been voting and the winner will be announced tomorrow morning! Good Luck to everyone involved, you are all winners in my eyes!

At the end of the show the staff also put on a special performance too…

Year 6 Leavers Production

WOW, What a fantastic evening we had at school last night! If you hadn’t guessed, last night was the Year 6 leavers production for parents and they sure did put a show. For weeks the children have been working hard, practicing their roles for the big event and it really paid off. They put on a fantastic show and all the grown ups fully enjoyed themselves! The children really did themselves proud and even had Mrs Keighley in tears at the end. She spoke about how the children have made all the staff and parents proud throughout all their time at Blakehill and we couldn’t agree more. We wish them all the best as the move to their secondary schools and hope that they continue to work hard and do us proud. Don’t forget to come back and visit us anytime!

Here are a few picture from the night and a little sing along song from the show.

Robinwood!

Last week, 41 Year 6 pupils got on a bus and travelled to Robin Wood activity centre for their jam-packed  3 day residential. It took them about 1 hour on the coach to get there. But when they arrived they couldn’t wait to get stuck in!

First, they had to walk 20 minutes just to get to the centre! Once they arrived they were shown to their dorms and had 20 minutes to unpack their things and get their kit bags ready for when they had a shower or after they got out of the piranha pool. After that, they were sorted into their groups including: Whirlpool,Ocean,Wave and Iceberg.Then were given all the activities that they would be doing over the next 3 days,which were:Giant swing(basically a bigger version of a swing that went much higher!), the Zipline, Piranha pool, Nightline, Knights Quest, Raft Building, Canoeing, Dungeon Of Doom, Caving, Crate Challenge, Trapeze and Rock Climbing!  Our favourite activities were: Giant Swing and Zipline!

The food was delicious and the dorms were very comfy to get to sleep in. We had our food in a beautiful dining room. Then for our sandwiches we went into the sports hall and got to choose what filling we wanted and chose a packet of crisps along with a blue ribbon biscuit.

Not to mention ,on the last night it was Megan’s birthday so, we got a piece of her tasty cake along with hot chocolate and a tune into Robin Wood Radio and listened to each group’s star of the day and why they chose them!

We all had an amazing time and made a lot of memories before we left!

We raised £366.80 for non-uniform, while on the ‘Guess The Sweets’ game we raised £117.37 that makes a grand total of £484.17, Thank you so much for all your donations and efforts in getting dressed in red for red nose day! As well as dressing in red some people even painted their face or dyed their hair!

6S’s Class Assembly

On Friday 6S had their class assembly all about what they had learnt over the half term. This consisted of the human body,the digestive system and their amazing trip to Blackpool  Pleasure beach. There was even some fabulous acting from some of the pupils. When they were talking about the digestive system Lilly,Lewis and Chloe read out their amazing digestion diaries all about a piece of food on their journey through the digestive system. Also, they had a Blakehill fitness programme where Tia and Max taught six children (one of which had his clothes on backwards and did everything wrong) to get their heart beating faster and their blood pumping. It was a very good assembly and was fun to watch as well.
