2S Class Assembly

This afternoon, 2s performed a wonderful, creative assembly all about the artist Claude Monet. They even had Claude himself here to talk to us and look at their art work.

We were taught facts all about his life, shown how they worked to create their own pieces of art like Monet did and spoken to in french!

To finish their assembly, they performed a marvellous dance to sur le pont d’avignon.

It was a great, confident and informative assembly. Well done 2S!

Parents come to visit

Over the last few weeks, we have been lucky enough to have multiple different groups of parents come in to explore our school!

Throughout their their visit, the curious parents entered all of the classrooms (including year 6) to see what all of the children were up to and how the teachers teach the students. We would like to tell you what we think is great about our school: we think that  our wonderful displays really catch the eye of people visiting the school was. We take pride in our displays and try make them look as eye catching as possible. We like how well the teachers teach us as we do fascinating and fun subjects such art! In our art lessons we design Christmas decorations , paint with water colours and do graffiti like Banksy. We also do main subjects such as English which we enjoy. In our English lessons, from reception upwards, we do many different pieces of writing exploring books to give us ideas. We work on our spelling,punctuation and grammar and last but not least work on our comprehension skills. We think this helps us become good writers.

Year One Paint Days

Year 1 have had Art days this week with a lady come in to do mindful art exploring the seasons. They listened to the story called ‘The Story Orchestra’ and responded to it using paints, pastels, graphite and observational drawing so that they could make their own seasons book. All the children had an amazing time and would love to do it again.

2017 Art Week

This week was Art Week! Every single year group have been busy bees looking at an artist and finding out all about their style and type of art. Some of the artists we have been looking at are Frida Kahol, Banksy and Vincent Van Gogh, which have all been very interesting. After all the research was done, it was time to start on the art! We used a variety of art skills such as painting, sketching, printing and drawing to produce beautiful art that represents ourselves and the people we have been looking at during art week. Year 6 started off with angry photos in the style of the artist Frida and drew a mono-brow on themselves just like she has! We have all had so much fun participating in art week and i’m sure everybody has learnt something new about their artist that they had never known before!

3R Class Assembly!

This afternoon, 3R put on a fantastic assembly for Blakehill all about the Stone Age! Over the term, they have been working very hard and have found out lots of interesting facts about the past and the ways the people from the Prehistoric Ages (Atone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age) lived and what they did. The children used iPads to research more information and read a book called Stone Age Boy to give them some more ideas too!

As well as researching, 3R got creative and did some role playing about what life would be like to be a prehistoric person. Not only that, but they decided to do some cave art that was similar to the ones the stone age people made. They did some brilliant drawing of animals like the sabre-tooth tiger, the lion and boars. Doing this, they used watercolour and charcoal just like the past prehistoric age and they turned out amazing.

For the assembly, they learnt a song that was called Stone and the children recorded it with their own words which turned out to be quite tricky! Also, they made sabre-tooth necklaces, using clay to shape the teeth and bones, then painting them to look realistic! They turned out really well and are a great example of jewellery from the past.

This term, they have put in so much effort and hard work leading up to this afternoons assembly! Mrs Rashid quoted, “We were so nervous all week but have pulled it off brilliantly this afternoon! I am so proud and will miss them next year!”
All in all, they performed an amazing assembly and worked really hard to make sure it was perfected. Well done 3R!

Year 3 School Linking Project

On Wednesday, Year 3 met up with Westbourne Primary School for the School Linking Project. This year, Blakehill was hosting and they had a fantastic time meeting new people and doing the fun activities together. To start off they did some sports games outside on the field. This included a challenging obstacle course, full of different twists and turns. They did pass the hula hoop where you cannot use your hands and have to pass the hoop around the circle. It’s tricky! They looked like jelly men wiggling around!

As well as this, they did pebble painting which was based on a book called Only You. This story was all about you being yourself and persevering to be the best you can. We recommend this book, it makes you feel good about yourself! They designed each pebble to make it look like a part of a picture and turned out really well! Take a look at the display by the school office to find out more about what they did and how! A while after, they designed their own pebble to remember their school linking and their new friend!

After, they began to do some Lego. This included trying to design their ideal school that they would go to everyday and maybe even live there! They found this really fun and loved to try out the different designs that they could make with each colour of the lego bricks!

To wrap it all up, each pupil designed a hand, recording their favourite food, favourite television show, their name, favourite thing to do and their friend. After, all of the teachers collected them up and made it into a beautiful, colourful display to show off to their schools!

Sadly, this would be the very last time they saw their new friends through the School Linking Project but I’m sure they will all have fantastic memories of their time together. Good luck in your future life.

Christmas Decorations

This week in Blakehill we have been getting in the Christmas spirit by making Christmas decorations! In class, we have been creating hoops to hang up in the corridors from the cieling to show off our creations to the school. We are very proud of them! As you walk through the corridors you will see our tinsel-decorated hoops above you which hold a range of robins, christmas trees, rudolphs, stars and snowflakes. They look very pretty and perfect for the holidays, we hope you agree! With the hoops being up, it’s now the official countdown to Christmas! Happy Holidays!
