On Thursday, we had an assembly all about drumming. The two people that were hosting the assembly were called Nathan and Alison from Learn to Rock. They were showing and talking to the parents a lot about their safety and how they were making it harder for the children.
First they started by showing us the beats that they taught and how they made it harder through the lessons. All the children who had been practising came up and showed off their new skills.
The best thing about the assembly is that some of the teachers played and they were really good at it… well kinda I guess.
At the end, they had the older ones, which they called the super stars, play and they did most of the hardest tricks and their names were Bethany and Dempsey. Can you believe they got 3 rounds of applause!?
It was great to watch and everyone is hoping that they can go next.

On Friday, the 13th of March, RD performed an amazing assembly all about the Gruffalo and what they have been doing since the start of the school year.
Firstly, a couple children stood up and said what they have been doing since the first day of the year. A couple of children showed an example of their maths and English. In maths a volunteer called Isla counted up and down to twenty amazingly. Then another volunteer wrote fox on the white board.
After that, everyone did an amazing job of a Gruffalo performance that everyone loved. The mouse especially did a great job for remembering all of his words. Everyone did an amazing job!

This Year, we are once again taking part in the Easter egg appeal for the eighth year.
The appeal is for less fortunate children around Bradford. At our school, we try and help them as much as we can to either raise money or give up something for others .In past years, we have collected over a hundred eggs.WOW. It is such a fantastic effort!
We always get informed by an assembly with Mr CL that every one enjoys because we always enjoy helping others and being kind. We cannot wait to see how many we bring in. Hopefully, we beat last year’s record!

At the end of the day today, 2P perfromed an amazing class assembly all about the London Fire. They did a great job and had exceptional dancing and singing . Now we will tell you how it went and what order they did things in.
First, they started by introducing what they were going to be telling us in their assembly. Then came up three children where two of them were meant to be children while the other was their granddad. They wanted to learn more about the London fire so they went back in time.
The first person that they met was Samuel Pepys who was writing in his diary. The first child looked in his diary and said she couldn’t read it. That was because he liked to write in a special writing so that no one could read it. Then after a nice dance, they found some one that looked really upset. This was King Charles II. He was devastated because he had tried his best to keep his town safe but nothing was working.
Then of course it was time to have another song it was really good and every one loved it. By that time it was time to finish and we all gave them a round of a applause and they all came running forwards to see there parents after the amazing performance. We really enjoyed it and look forward to their next one.

Today, in the afternoon, Mr Frowd visited our school to perform another amazing assembly (just like he always does.)
He started off with a joyful song all about Christmas day. It filled everyone with excitement and they were eager for another one to start.
After he had sang the song, he made all of us laugh by telling us what a normal person would do in Mary’s situation after discovering what was ahead of her.
He also talked about the gaps in the Christmas story which nobody noticed and that should have been filled in. At that point, everybody was laughing their heads off, he started to talk about how he wouldn’t have been calm in her situation.
Eventually, he ended his assembly by singing another song that calmed us down so we were ready to go back into class.
It was a really good assembly and we’re sure everyone will be itching to see it again.

This week, on Thursday, Blakehill had an interesting visitor come in to show us different rock instruments and how to play them. He taught at a place who wanted to convince to us to learn new musical instrument.
The instruments that he showed us were the electric guitar, drums and keyboard. They even offer singing lessons! .On the guitar he played Senorita and lots more songs and everyone sang a long. He certainly got everyone rocking, rolling and having a fantastic time.
We all had to vote on which instrument we thought was best and it was mixed response with different children preferring different instruments.
We had a great time watching the performance and enjoyed joining in by clapping to the songs. It certainly was an experience and are hoping to have more assemblies like this in school.

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.

On Tuesday, we had Mrs Roberts coming in and talking to us about Remembrance Day.
She started off with the song Tipperary which we all enjoyed. After the children settled down from all the singing, Mrs Roberts started to tell us about when it is . It’s on the 11th month, on the 11th day at 11 am.
Mrs Roberts talked about how the soldiers fought and risked their lives for us in the war. She showed us a sweet video of how the poppies were relevant to the war. We all enjoyed this. We closed our eyes and thought how brave they were and how grateful we are to have soldiers.
We now know that Remembrance Day is a very important Day to us and will know what to think about during our two minute silence on Monday.

Colin and Natalie came to visit on Tuesday and deliver another of their great assemblies.
They began the assembly talking about pizza and the process of ordering pizza from takeaway. Colin talked about what comes first when making a pizza, which was dough, then tomato sauce. After that, they said it was the cheese, then toppings. We disused the different toppings and we agreed on mushrooms and tomato.
Later on, they informed us of how many miles away where the ingredients home places were. We totalled the miles up, and came to the conclusion that overall, the pizza had traveled about 56,100 miles to get to us.
The lesson of this assembly was to be grateful that food can travel that far, just to get to our door. We couldn’t believe how far our food travels and are very lucky that we have such an amazing choice.

On Thursday afternoon Nathan , Alice and the children performed an incredible drumming assembly. The children involved had worked with Nathan since the end of last year developing their drumming skills.
First, Riley and Dempsey performed an excellent duet. Nathan showed them a beat , Riley and Dempsey had to copy it. It was amazing! Alice explained how she had taught them the different type of drums used on the full set. She also took part and tried to distract the children to show how well focused they were.
After the boys, it was Amber and lily’s turn. They did it to the song Boomerang. Even though they were really young, they were really good. After that, other chilren took to the stage no matter what year they were in, they were still fantastic to watch.
We all loved the assembly too much and were all disappointed that we had to go back to class.
