Year 6 SATS

This week, both Year 6 classes have tried their very hardest to get the best scores they could possibly in their SATS.

Year 6 children were split into 3 groups. Unfortunately, the first group had to be in school by 8:00. On Monday, Year 6 had to face their biggest fart: Sats (hehehe). Firstly, they had to do the SPAG and the spelling test that had 20 questions. Both classes got through the tests with ease.

After that, they had their reading test. Most of Year 6 were worried about finishing this test , however it was easier than they thought. Lastly, they had their maths and arithmetic tests. After that, it was freedom!

Year 6 are now thinking about their ( hopefully ) fabulous production at the end of the year along with relaxing.

We hope that Year 6 have an amazing rest of the year ( without having to worry about tests 🙂 )

3P Class Assembly

This afternoon, Friday 30th of 2017, 3P have put on a interesting, fact-filled  and jazzy show all about stone age! After the Ice age that change humanity, Stone-Age came along and people began using stone. We learnt that stone is very important and we even have it today it is very popular that you will see a stone building ( from Stone-Age or Anglo Saxons) they did a bit on their ancestors and looked back in time. To do this project, they read a very satisfying book about a boy whom travelled back in time to Stone-Age He learnt that it was very different  back then and we should respect how lucky we are today.

Next we met two families who were from different time periods, the Stone-Age and the other from the modern age(now). We realise how different they are so somebody was playing with a coconut and a stick while another watched TV. A child had a new iPad and said ‘it had a fish in it a game,’ but the other person did not understand this and asked ‘Why is there no water or fish falling out?’
Two people talked about metal , about tea time and some one was confused with a iPod and how could they fit musicians in the tiny little thing.

They even did some fantastic art about Stone-Age it was so creative. If you came to the assembly please drop a comment down below about what you thought. This was a great assembly and we are excited about their next one in Year 4.

Young Voices 2017


On Wednesday this week some very lucky children from Blakehill got the chance to take part in one of the biggest choirs in the world! The Choir was made up of over 5000 children and their teachers! These children were extremely lucky and although it took lots and lots of practise it was all worth it thousands of people came to watch it was amazing!

We have spent months practising and it really paid off. As this day began we ate in extra club we rapidly got changed for the day. As soon as the coach pulled up we jumped on for a long ride to Sheffield Arena. Finally, we got there and started and started our rehearsal. We got seated and sang along with all the other children and school in the practise. Singing our hearts out, we slurped our drinks and got ready for the big show. In no time the main show was upon us and members of our family started to arrive.

Bright, hot and shining lights shone in our faces as the show began. The music blasted out and we began to sing. Before the show started, we were introduce to our guest stars that included The Beat-box Collective and Natalie Williams. The songs we sang were mostly medleys but some weren’t, like Birdhouse in your soul. The medleys were called Five Guys named Moe, For those about to rock again and Pop Medley. The consort ended about 9:30. We were all tired as could be. We arrived back at school just before 11 o’clock at night! The next day we did not want to get out of bed but we had such a great time that is was all worth while!

Have a look at some of the pictures and short videos from our fantastic time at Young Voices 2017 and leave a comment.

KS2 Christingle services at St Cuthbert Church

This week, Key Stage 2 went to St Cubthert Church and to host a Christingle Service for family and friends. On Wednesday 14th, year 5 and 6 went to the Christingle Service accompanied by the Blakehill choir. This was very educational as it told the story of Jesus’ birth. They read many parts,during this they also sang many songs. One song they sang was, We Three Kings (this was only for the choir)three girls played a role in the song by singing solo’s. The brave girls sang amazing; Macey sang Myrrh, Emily -Mae sang Frankincense and Brooke sang Gold They sounded like angels. Everyone did very well and should be extremely proud of themselves.

Year 3 and 4 also went but on Thursday 15th. They were also accompanied by the beautiful choir. Their Christingle  Service was different from Year 5 and 6  as children from Year 3 played the parts of the people and animals that were involved in the story of Jesus’ birth. Year 4 read out the story while some young children carried the Christingle. Holly (in year 3) played Mary and was followed by Lucas who played Joseph. They all did a wonderful job of being the story to life through songs, poems, readings and acting. there were lots of  happy parents who had big smile on their faces.

Thank you to Mrs Marsden and Mrs Bedell for their hard work putting the Christingle Service together and all the other staff that helped out on both days.

We hope this footage puts a smile on your face. Merry Christmas everyone : ) .

St Cuthbert’s Walking Nativity

Tomorrow at 5:00pm the school choir will be going down to St Cuthbert’s to take part in their walking nativity. Many schools will also be attending this great walk. If you want to come you need to be accompanied by an adult but don’t worry parents it will be a lot of fun for all! For all that would like to attend we are meeting at St Cuthbert’s church on Wrose Road.

We will be singing a various traditional Christmas carols. After this, we will be waling between and meeting the main characters of the traditional story, which includes the sheep. We will also be taking part in a similar journey to that of the one in the story and along the way we will be stopping for some nice beverages .

We hope to see you there to join this wonderful activity.

Choir is back! Ten lucky people are going to the Big Sing which is a really exciting thing for us. We are teamed up with Thorp primary and will be singing some good songs, such as down by the river side, banana boat, a Viking song and an African work song. Song songs even have actions that we have been learning. Big sing will take place next week! We have practice very hard.
So far this year the choir have been to many different places like the high school, nursing homes and even graduations. After this event, we are going to carry on singing and doing choir. If you have seen us I hope you like our performance and if you are interested in joining our choir see Mrs Marsden or Mrs Badell.
