Colin and Natalie came to visit on Tuesday and deliver another of their great assemblies.
They began the assembly talking about pizza and the process of ordering pizza from takeaway. Colin talked about what comes first when making a pizza, which was dough, then tomato sauce. After that, they said it was the cheese, then toppings. We disused the different toppings and we agreed on mushrooms and tomato.
Later on, they informed us of how many miles away where the ingredients home places were. We totalled the miles up, and came to the conclusion that overall, the pizza had traveled about 56,100 miles to get to us.
The lesson of this assembly was to be grateful that food can travel that far, just to get to our door. We couldn’t believe how far our food travels and are very lucky that we have such an amazing choice.
Mollie is going to Nell Bank next week so I am giving her some tips!
At Nell bank there’s lots of fun things explore. You do many different activities like my favorite thing was the playground. Mollie has been to Nell Bank before for school linking and she loved the scavenger hunt.
Are the beds cozy?
Yes there are bunk beds and they’re really nice and comfy.
Is it fun,exciting and enjoyable?
Yes it’s really good and if you don’t go then you’ll regret it. You get to spend a lot of time with your friends and explore all day. The adventure park is the best!
On Tuesday the 15th we had an exciting neon disco that was organised by our PTFA. There were sweets, hot dogs, refreshments, flashing lights, and lots more!
First , it was Key Stage 1 from 5.00 to 6.00 then it was Key Stage 2 which was from 6.15 to 7.15. It was two pounds entry and we had lots of fun with dancing, singing and flashing disco lights. In Key Stage 2 we could buy friend ship bracelets, neon glasses, flashing fruit rings , flashing finger lights and lots of other things. Everyone looked funny wearing their neon accessories while they danced.
We had lots of fun dancing and singing with our friends in our bright clothes. We enjoyed it so much we can not wait for the next one!
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.
Year six went to a hockey camp in Hanson with Mrs Dobson to perfect their hockey skills and compete against other teams. The boys did really well in winning most of there games because of great teamwork. Mrs Dobson said that if we win in our next games, we will qualify for the Bradford winter games at Bradford Grammar School! How exciting! Good luck at your next meet boys!
On the 9th of July, children were sent down to the hall to watch the very last assembly by Year 6.
The stage was up, the lights were out, and everyone was quiet. Nobody had known what they were doing until now, they were doing ‘Albie’. Albie was the male version of ‘Annie’.
As you should know, the story follows a young child called Annie (or in this case Albie) who was abandoned at an orphanage by her parents when she was a baby. Her family left a locket and a note saying they would come back for her. She then spends her whole life searching for her family until she meets a rich and famous man called Mr Worbucks (or Mr Stacks for the modern version.) It is a great film and I recommend you watch it.
The whole of Year 6 (both 6G and 6R) worked as hard as they could to make this production perfect, and it was all worth it.
It was full of singing, dancing jokes and more. There wasn’t a single person that forgot their lines or what scene they were in. Everyone was simply brilliant!
It was a lovely production and all children and adults loved it.
This Friday, (Friday 5th of July) the classes were called down to the hall to watch a brilliant assembly all about RD’s first year at Blakehill.
They started off by welcoming everyone to the assembly, then going on to share with how much they had learnt. After that, RD showed us their math skills ,by solving sums on a whiteboard, and their knowledge of phonics by blending words.
Soon after, they started telling us what they wanted to be when they grew up, there were lots of good jobs, such as, vets, doctors, farmers and many more.
It was a very interesting assembly and everyone enjoyed it.
This week, Blakehill have had a visit from the child protection centre called the NSPCC. They came all the way to our school to talk about speaking out and staying safe.
They showed all of the children different forms of abuse such as: physical abuse, bullying, emotional abuse etc. The two visitors told us all about how much our worries can affect us and how small things can make a big difference.
They also showed us an animation all about a small girl who had been experiencing worrying things with her family at home. To help herself, she called the child line number (08001111) and asked for help. After that, things started getting better for her.
Finally, they explain to us that calling Childline was nothing to worry about. To represent this they showed a stop motion animation all about it.
It was a really informative assembly and everyone learnt a lot.
This afternoon, 3R did an assembly about the present life and Stone Age life and how different the lives were.
At the beginning, they all talked about the Iron Age, Bronze Age and Stone Age. Bravely, some of the children stood up and acted out being prehistoric humans and present day people. We learnt that stone age people didn’t know what metal was and they didn’t know what a smartphone was because they didn’t have that kind off stuff back then. They all showed us their amazing art work and stone necklaces. They signed us out by singing We Will Rock You but the caveman edition! They did a brilliant assembly and we enjoyed learning loads of facts about cavemen!
