Prom 2016 For The Year Sixes

On Tuesday Year 6 had their prom which will be there last at Blakehill! Every Teacher was there even MISS WILKINSON!!! Everyone looked beautiful in their suits and dress’s (even the teachers got dressed up!)

When we arrived we walked up a ‘red carpet’ while Mrs Russell took our amazing photos! After that we went into the main hall (which had been decorated in the style of a VIP lounge and we were treated like stars!) and played some games and danced with all our friends and teachers! Before long it was time to announce the Kings and Queens of prom! These people were chosen by the people in their class for being the kindest, friendliest and most down to earth people in the class that everyone got along with. And the winners were…….
In 6R…
Darcy and Adam
and In 6W…
Iqra and Joseph

Well done guys!
We even had a buffet which went down a treat! Everyone had a great time and enjoyed themselves.

We are a 360 degree safe school! This means that our school is good at E-Safety. Our teachers have been working hard to tell us what E-Safety is about and Mr Lowe and Miss Lea has been doing assemblies with the digital leaders about E-Safety.

Year 6 go to Robin Wood !

On Wednesday 22nd of June Year 6 went to Robinwood.

When we arrived we at Hebden Bridge other wise known as Dobroyd Castle we were all very excited and met up in the archery room to have some delicious food. (we also played lots of games!) After that, we all went into our groups me and Joseph were in Mountain Group – our group leader was called Beth however we had been give Mrs Russell for help as well. However after dinner we was ready for our first activity…

RAFT BUILDING!!: At the beginning of our activity  we talked about how to build our rafts it sounded hard but it really wasn’t ! We then  split up into 2 groups (A and B ) and began to build our rafts,the only thing that was hard to do was to  tie the ropes which was to hold  everything together so that nothing came off of the raft as then we would of fallen into the smelly lake! We had a certain amount of time to make these,then when everyone was ready Benney and Beth lifted our rafts into the brown dirty lake. Ethan and Adam then was asked to go first they had to make team A’s raft go all the way to goose poo rock ! Thankfully, everyones raft had worked!!! But Ethan pushed Adam into the lake it was so funny !

Euros 2016 at Blakehill

Yesterday started as, everything was going all cool in everyone’s class but then after dinner time every class heard the news of ” we’re aloud to watch half of the  football game!” Everyone was really excited about this (as it’s never happened before in Blakehill’s life time!) After the excitement had calmed down, everyone did their lessons up until two o’clock in the afternoon. And that’s when Felix Brych AKA ( referee) blew his whistle for the match to begin.

At first the match was pretty boring as nothing was really happening until…

Gareth Bale had got a free kick as he had been pushed over -mentioning no names- and sadly Bale scored a whooping 30 yards away from the goal ! (we were all really annoyed)

But then the amazing Jamie Vardey scored just as the bell had gone!

Everyone was cheering as they were leaving the school building.

Except people who were at rounders club, Mr Lowe and Mrs Russell decided that whoever wanted to watch the England match  could go and watch it. in the class room and towards the end of the match 91 minute Daniel Sturridge had scored and as the whistle blew everyone who supported wales were almost into tears!! And evreyone who was watching the match at Blakehill       (the people who wanted to watch it at rounders club) came out cheering saying “we won we won !!!! ”

What a good day it was !

The Queens birthday at Blakehill

Today, Blakehill celebrated the Queens 90th birthday, yeah I know the Queen had her birthday like two months ago but if you didn’t already know the Queen has two birthdays!!! And Blakehill did  this by coming to school dressed as a queen, king, knight, prince or princess. But if that wasn’t your thing you could come in the England colours of wait for it …… Red, White and Blue because  that’s the colours of Union Jack, which is the flag of the united Kingdom!

Over the last two days Blakehill has been all out Royal, doing lots of work all about eh queen and the royal family. Our class some did writing , ART and reading comprehensions (y6). We’ve all had a fantastic time and we all hope the queen has a fantastic birthday!!

As a special treat, for the Queens big day, we even had a picnic for our lunch. We were hoping to have it on the field but due to the “summer weater” (rain) we had to have it in the hall on matts – we still had a great time.

Year 6 SATs !!

Today was the day, that year 6 could revise for the last time at school before their SATs!!! Sadly, SATs are on Monday and will be held in the hall. Year 6  are  very, very (I mean very!) nervous! But don’t worry guys we are sure you will all do great!

If you didn’t know already, SATs are tests, which every child in the UK have to sit and do- they are extremely hard but we can do it! Our Year 6’s have been working very hard this week and we think we have done a great job so far! On the morning of our SATs, children in year 6 have to arrive at school at 8:30am- UNFAIR!! But we get a snack when we get here! Hopefully everyone will do very well and make ourselves proud.

1R use the ipads to re-tell a story

Today,1R have used the ipads to re-tell the story of S.t George. To do this they learnt how to click on the + button to  add  new page then , they had to be extremely careful because they could make their pens either go thin or thick! They  also learned how to save their work ,which they found tricky to start, but they got it in the end! Towards the end of their lesson they got to  print off their amazing work and after they had  their work checked they were allowed to watch what they had done, they made some great animation!

and most of all THE CHILDREN LOVED USING THE IPADS TO HELP THEM LEARN!!!!
