Macmillan Coffee Morning!

The Macmillan coffee morning was an amazing experience for both children and their loving parents. It raised a astonishing amount of money approximately over 2500 pounds during the morning which was orchestrated by Mrs Pedley. This was one of the most best attended coffee morning Blakehill has ever organized and we are very proud!

Mrs Watson, who is a parent at our talented school, generously and single-handedly organized a jewelry cleanse in order to raise more money for cancer research. Also there was raffle, where a young boy won a Porsche experience, his name is Gurneet! Enjoy!

Thank you to everyone who came to our marvellous morning and helped make it such a success!

The buddies changed over this week and as a thank you, Mrs Corbridge gave a buddy party. The buddies got to play on iPads and have bisuits. Each buddy also received two presents! Amara said, ‘we had a fun and enjoyable time’. Priya said, ‘I enjoy being a buddy’. Well done and thank you to our buddies, you did an excellent job!

 

2P Class Assembly

This afternoon, 2P gave us a brilliant assembly, all about ‘Together We Can’, (the school motto)  and how they had been working together in different activities as a class, and helping each other do everything they needed to do. They thought about the time they work together in school, in every subject like science, maths and art, and that working as a team sometimes can be fun and helpful too.

They also told us about the book they had been reading, which was called The Day The Crayons Quit, and how all the crayons were very unhappy, until they started to work as a team to create beautiful, and brightly coloured pictures! Some of the children dressed up as the crayons, looking fantastic, and acted out how the crayons would feel, and that they felt they weren’t getting used enough, and wanted their colours to be shown off more! During art day, Year 2 had created a huge piece of artwork using brightly coloured inks and graphite, working together, and the outcome was amazing, all different textures and colours and patterns, which also symbolised how they had done it together, as a team to make something beautiful and brilliant, while enjoying doing it!

To finish off their fantastic performance, the children sang a fun song about being kind and helpful to eachother, and that it doesn’t take a lot to brighten someones day! Well done 2P!
