Macmillan coffee morning

Next week on Friday we are hosting a coffee morning, we think it is very important for this to happen as we believe nobody in cancer should stand alone. You can even make a donation of cakes or delicious  buns from your work or anywhere. No matter big or small it will be gratefully accepted.It does not matter if you can’t donate, however we would love for you to hurry along and buy a cup of tea or coffee. For your entertainment and to bring joy to people who have less fortune like people with cancer (please do buy some things as all that you buy and all the pounds go to cancer).

Fun and Games
The glorious Mrs Pedley, has arranged some games and so we will do a big raffle, a tombola, guess the amounts of sweets in the jar and other games. We do hope that you can come. Last year we got a fantastic amount off money we got 800 pound! Now please help us put a smile on someone’s face and come to our coffee morning.

KS1 Change 4 Life Assembly

On Thursday, Mrs Corbridge and Miss Wilson did an assembly on how to make a change when it comes to sugary food. The organisation is called Change 4 Life. They watched a power point where it told you about the dangers of having too much sugar. Which can lead to more serious things like diabetes! After that they participated in questions on    sugary foods. After the assembly , when they went back to their classes , all the children in KS1 got a Change 4 Life pack which showed thier parents and them how to use the smart app. You may have also seen some change  for life television adverts. On the tv advert it also shows you the phone app where you can scan a cereal box to show how much sugar it has in it. The pack also contained a list of foods with the amount of sugar in it. The assembly made a big turning point for most of the children and made their future decision on what to do when they come face to face with a high source of sugary foods.

Blakehill Fun Day

Today all the children in Blakehill got a special treat from their teachers and the PTFA for being good this year.Today, the children were allowed ice-cream and also were allowed to have a go on some bouncy castles! The bouncy castle company arrived before school to set up 3 inflatables for us brought! They was a big inflatable slide, a Scooby-Doo bouncy castle and a disco bouncy castle with a disco light inside(cool)! Some lucky classes got to go on the bouncy castles more than once before it started to rain this afternoon. As well as the bouncy castles, there was also a ice-cream van that came into school and we all got an Ice cream cone with sherbet and sauces or a lolly. It was a great day, thank you to all the staff and PTFA who helped to make it happen!

Marie Curie Fundraising

Remember when we had Yellow Day to raise money for Marie Curie? Recently we have heard back from them about what the money we raised was spent on – it funded a trek to Sri Lanka for terminally ill women and we are very proud of this fact. Well done and thank you to everyone who donated!

Roots and Fruits

Kelsey, Miley, Molly, Finley, Harley and Charlene from Year 3 have been lucky enough to take part in a project called Roots and Fruits this Autumn. They have gone every Tuesday for the past term to learn how to do new things and all about plant life. Here are few things parents have said when they have spoke to Mrs Corbridge about it:

“A real privledge for my child to have this opportunity.”

“We only wish the lessons could carry on for longer.”

“When he came home, he had loads to talk about with his brothers.”

The children have said that they really enjoyed doing this every week and as you can see, they finished off by making Christmas wreaths for their classroom doors.

MacMillian Coffee Morning Results

Today Mrs Corbridge and Mrs Pedley organised a outstanding coffee morning from little toddlers to big grown adults to help raise money for MacMiliian Cancer Support. This event had lots of people attending it and it was so great to see so many wonderful faces. Without you all coming and enjoying our scrumptious cakes we wouldn’t have raised a whopping £607.48! We are very pleased about the amount of money that we have collected, even Peppa Pig was so happy! Thank you so much for all the cakes you and all the children have brought in.

At the coffee morning we had a special guest and that was Peppa Pig! I hope you all had a wonderful time at the coffee morning. Thank you!
