Yesterday, Westbourne (Year 3) came to finish our linking project. Blakehill made posters to welcome in Westbourne when they come into the hall. It was the third time we have met up because we first met them at Nell Bank then went to visit them at their school.

When Westbourne arrived we split up into 2 classes and then we split the classes in half. There was 4 groups: group 1,group 2,group 3 and group 4. Each group was made up of children from Blakehill and Westbourne and we worked in pairs. There were 4 activities: building Lego houses, P-E, making fact hands and Q-R code hunt (P-S the answer is friendship). So everyone could have a go at everything, all the groups switched around.

We had lots of fun working together to build our dream school together as well as learning about each other to write facts on our fact fingers. We also worked and play together to play noughts and crosses, pass the tennis ball and blindfolded obstacle course. Finally we used the iPads and worked together to find QR codes, solve a puzzle and then un-jumble the ten letters we had collected to spell the word friendship.

All the teachers and children really enjoyed see our new friends again and we wish we could do it again.

3L Class Assembly!

On the 9th January 2015, class 3L did an amazing assembly about their School Linking day! They told us about how they made many friends and how they had so much fun.  They linked with a school called Westbourne Primary and went all the way to Nell Bank in Ilkley to meet each other. They did lots of different activities and it looked like they had tons of fun!

Lots of parents came to see the assembly and all the parents were so happy and had a big smile on each of their faces.

Are you in Year 3? If you went to Nell Bank, tell us if you had fun! What was your favourite activity? Did you make any new friends? Are you excited to see them again next time Blakehill go to meet Westbourne primary?
