RJ’s class assembly

On Friday, 12th of July reception performed an amazing assembly about leaving their class and what they are going to be when they are older.

They started off by introducing it and told us what they had been doing for the past year or so,they showed us their writing, their art,their math and the last book they had been reading. They showed us a lot and by that they also told us they had a great time in reception.

After they told us that they stood up and 1 at a time they told us what they wanted to be when they were older. They had a great time in reception and we hope they have a great time in year 1.

Planetarium

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.

3Ro’s assembly

On Friday the 14th of June Year 3 did an assembly all about prehistoric age. They explained many things about what the stone age people did and what they learnt from it. Also they made a comparison of what we live like today and what the stone age people lived like.

They started off by introducing the assembly and showed us cave paintings that archaeologists had found. They told us that the drawings had a meaning behind them and what they thought the meaning was. All of the drawings were all very different, they showed us a picture of a deer, bison and many more.

They then went on to showing us where they lived. They taught us that the houses looked and were made very differently to our houses today. They were made out of different materials. They also compared what they dressed like as well.

At the very end they sang a stone age song (we will rock you).

Everyone enjoyed the assembly.

1W’s Class Assembly

On Friday 17th of May, Year 1 performed an assembly about their trip to Skipton Castle. They explained about how the castle was made and how people used to live in it.

First they started off by introducing the assembly and showed pictures of the front of the castle and told us about the features on it. They spoke about the different rooms and places inside and outside of the castle. Their favourite place in the building was the dungeon because it was dark,cold and scary.

1W were taught where to build a castle by their instructor: they told us that you needed to build it near a river so that enemies couldn’t get to it. It also had to be built with high walls so that no enemies could climb over them. Finally towards the end they sang a song about castles.

What an enjoyable and informative assembly! Well done 1W.

Football tournament!

This week children from KS2 have taken part in competitive football matches with other local schools. On Monday, we hosted the preliminary round where both teams played well and qualified for today’s (Friday) finals. A highlight of this being the fantastic support of other children who decided to watch the games during their break time.

Finals were played at Woodhouse Grove. The intense games were very interesting and close yet Blakehill’s  sneaky tactics and outstanding skills paid off as Year 3/4 made the semi-finals with 5 and 6 also playing well. Despite facing heavy tackles, the children continued to get up and score some amazing goals. As the ball kept on flying into the net, everybody was having fun whether they were losing a game or not.

Coming back to school, everybody was exhausted yet their spirits were still high. We are sure everybody had a great time.

Year 6’s Last Parents Evening

This week (on Tuesday 19th March and Thursday 21st March) Year 6 have had their final parents evening at Blakehill Primary School.

For the first day, their teachers , Mrs Gould and Mrs Russell along with the teaching assistants, prepared by collecting up all their books. Also, they wrote down their test results of every single test they have taken in Year 6. The two teachers of the classes spoke to the child’s parents about: behaviour, test results and how they get on in class, break and lunch. They talked about how close their child is from reaching greater depth and how they should be prepared for SATs.

They referred back to the reports and talked about how good they were while parents wanted their child to get ones in all subjects. They spoke to them and explained what they could to to improve their work further. At the end, every single child was happy about what their teacher said and their results from their tests. We are sure they will enjoy the rest of their time at Blakehill.

KS1 bedtime story

Yesterday Years 1 and 2 had a fun, cosy bedtime story where they were invited with their  parents to snuggle up and escape in a twilight story. They all got comfy and sat on cushions whilst their  parents got to read their children some books. Everybody had big smiles on their faces. After that, the teachers read everybody a fantastic, fascinating book that made them very sleepy. But the fun didn’t end there, everyone got to have some delicious drinking hot chocolate and got to eat scrumptious biscuits.

6R Class Assembly

On Friday, class 6R presented an assembly about growing up and what they want to be when they are 30 years old.

They started off by writing letters to themselves for when they are 30. On the letter, they wrote questions about what their future selves possessed and what jobs they had. Some of the questions were,’ Are you a pro footballer yet? ‘, and ‘ Are you married and if so, does your husband have a six pack? ‘ and  ‘ Have you got a Lamborghini? ‘ We all laughed and they went on to the next point.

First, the boys sang about growing up and after the girls followed. Both were really funny and entertaining.

Then they showed us some of their drawings that represented what they thought they were going to look like when they were 30. Then all of a sudden, on the smartboard, pictures from a website called ‘ In 20 Years.com ‘ showed up. They were all of 6R and what the website predicted the students would look like when they were older which was also extremely amusing.

Finally, they took out their letters and explained that they were going to place the letters in a time capsule and bury it in the ground to come back to when they are 30.

We all enjoyed the assembly and gave them a large round of applause.

RP Class Assembly

On Friday, Reception performed an excellent class assembly all about what they’ve learnt at Blakehill so far.

They started off by showing off they’re brilliant knowledge of phonics, to name a few: i, m and g. Even better, they came up to a whiteboard and presented their spellings.

It didn’t end there! Next, they showed us how they counted to ten and how they knew which numbers were odd and even . They even showed us a sum that impressed us all as it was not only correct, but beautifully presented!

Towards the end, they showed us all about the book they had been reading called  ‘ Dinosaurs Love Underpants.’ They then did performed the main plot of the story us all which was really entertaining. Although this was their first assembly, it was one of the best ones the year! We cannot wait for their next one.

RD Class Assembly

Today (Friday 1st February 2019) the children of reception performed their very first assembly in front of the whole school. They talked all about their learning on dinosaurs and the exciting history that goes with it.

They first listed some of the different types dinosaurs  such as: Triceratops, Pterodactyl, Tyrannosaurus Rex , Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus and many more! They then showed us some of their pictures, which were amazing, that they drew all by themselves.

Next, they acted like cavemen and dinosaurs which was really entertaining! After that, reception showed us how people used to live like back in the days of dinosaurs. They used the information from the book ‘Dinosaurs in underpants’ to share with us all these amazing facts that they have discovered. All the children spoke with beautifully clear voice and had learnt all of their words off by heart.

It was a brilliant assembly and we certainly cannot wait for their next one!
