Our New Year’s Resolutions

Every New Year, people in Blakehill think about their new year’s resolutions for the next year. We all then, that year, try and complete the resolutions we chose.

Some of the resolutions we chose included:

  • Go to the gym
  • Help my parents more
  • Be kinder to other children
  • Get to know my neighbours better

Most of these were our resolutions. We all hope that this year we complete them.

Mr Frowd Assembly

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.

The Princess Boy

On Friday the 6th of December, Mrs Keighley (our head teacher) held an inspirational assembly about a book called’ My Princess Boy’.

First, she played an amazing song that was named Rainbow-land by Mylie Cyrus. At the beginning, no-one knew the words to sing along but as it got going, lots of people started to join in with the wonderful lyrics.

When the song had finished, Mrs Keighley started reading a book called ‘My Princess Boy’. It was based around the theme ‘Don’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover’.

We thought this was a good assembly as it taught us not to judge people for being themselves.

I ( Mollie) thought that it was great for younger children because of the moral behind it. I ( Eleanor ) thought that this assembly was a brilliant example for kids to not judge people for what they look or sound like. I ( Ruby ) thought that it was a brilliant assembly.

5HJ class assembly

Today, 5HJ did their class assembly all about Ingleborough Hall.

It started off with the first group talking about what happened when they got there. What happened? First, they unpacked, got their dormitories ready and had lunch. For lunch they had, sandwich, crisps, yogurt and a drink.

Next, a couple more people stood up and talked about the Show Cave. They talked about stalactites and stalagmites that where in the cave. The guide said that two men discovered the cave a very long time ago.

Then the rest of the children talked about what they did and it was really interesting. It must of been a great trip!

The Food Bank Assembly

HARVEST TIME. This afternoon, we went in to assembly to watch a food bank presentation and we were asked to bring in food to help people who aren’t as lucky as we are.

The lady was a volunteer in the food bank and she came and explained what foods we should bring in. She said we should bring in canned food and long lasting food. The only thing is that they don’t have fridges or freezers so we can’t have anything that goes in either.

We think we are lucky not to have to worry about food and will try to help those who need it.

Hi my name is Mollie and I think I’ll be a good blogger because I love writing and I love telling people about what’s been happening throughout school. I love being in charge of the I-pads when teachers can’t hold them. I am eight years old and I am in 4P.

New Teachers

On Wednesday, all the pupils in school met their brand new teachers!

Reception got either Mrs Wardell or Miss Gardener. Year 1 discovered it would be either Mrs Scott or Mrs Pinder. Year 2 got Mr Rhodes or Mrs Roberts. Year 3 got Mr Hodges or Miss Philips. Year 4 got Mrs Hall until Miss Javed comes back or Miss Lancaster. Year 5 got Mr Sidebottom until Miss Russell comes back or Mrs Gould.

On the same day, Year 6 went to their secondary schools. They spent a whole day there while we spent 45 minutes talking about: what we do, what we’re excited about and some classes also did some activities to get ready for next year.

We’re all looking forward to starting with our brand new teachers next year.

Mother’s day stall

This year, Blakehill has held another stall for Mother’s day and they had four new things for children to choose and buy for their mothers. This year, the options were: a wooden heart plaque, Vanilla scented candle, Potted Daffodil and a Stationary set. With so many good options, it was a hard decision to make when deciding what our mums should get.

Each person received a letter where they could have a first choice, second choice, third choice and a fourth choice. They would write their name, class and choices before crossing their fingers and hoping for their first choice. It would cost them £2.00 for the present they had chosen. Whatever the present they got, we know it will please whoever they give it to.

Everyone can’t wait for mother’s day and the real reason for it is to thank any special lady in your life.

Woodwind Assembly

This week, on Tuesday 12th of March, a band from the Bradford music service paid a visit to Blakehill. Everyone slowly walked down to the hall where they found the band standing at the top of the hall. Instead of being one of those bands with drums and guitars, they were each equipped with different types of instruments that used lung power.  The band was made up of four people each from the same place.

They introduced them selves and their instruments and they got straight into it with their first song and asked the children to guess what it was. The answer was Despacito and they then told them that they would play some more songs and everyone would have to guess what they are. They played ‘ How Far I’ll Go ‘ and    ‘You’re Welcome’ from the film Moana. They also played Swan Lake, the ballet song because on of the instruments was inspired by the duck swan. The last song was ‘Bear-necessities’  from the film Jungle Book.

Every one enjoyed their visit and especially enjoyed trying to guess the song that was being played. At the end as everyone was leaving, they played some soft relaxing music and the year six were wanting them to play Despacito again.

World Book Day

This year Blakehill Primary School have put on another World Book Day and almost everyone was dressed up. On Thursday every single child had an opportunity to come to school in fancy dress. Before the day they had an assembly where Mrs Russell said “that everyone will received a £1.00 voucher to spend at any shop to buy a book but they could only choose one of the selected books that the shop had to offer”.

On the day, lots of children came to school all dressed up in all sorts of costumes such as: Willy Wonka, Where’s  Wally, Umpalumpas, Witches and Wizards, Horrid Henry and Dennis from Dennis and Gnasher unleashed. Even some teachers dressed up for this special occasion! There was a competition for the best costume in KS1, lower KS2 and upper KS2 also Reception was involved. There was another competition where children could design a potato and the best would win a prize. Lots of children entered the competition and there was a lot of fanstic, imaginatively decorated potatoes.

Miss Gardener and Mrs Russell went round the school taking pictures of everyone in the school who was properly dressed because the costumes needed to be judged for the competition. At the end of the day everybody enjoyed seeing what people were and the competitions as well as sharing ideas about the books they love!
