During this half term Year3 have been learning to play the recorder with Miss Gehlan. We are so proud of their progress that we thought it would be nice for you to hear them perform!
Our amazing pods were transformed into a drumming class led by our very own Jake. He had prepared brilliant activities for KS1 and KS2 children and was a natural teacher! Thank you for giving up your lunchtime, Jake, you have certainly inspired some younger children to pursue the possibility of becoming a percussionist!
Following the very kind donations during our harvest festival, myself, Mrs. Evans and three Bleakholt Ambassadors visited the sanctuary to donate the gifts and also take the time to see many of the animals, including some of the dogs that we have sponsored. Well done to all!
A great time was had by all this evening with such a wide range of incredible costumes on display!
Well done to our amazing PTA, thank you to all the parents and staff that helped to set up, tidy away and help on stalls throughout the evening. I’m sure a figure will be announced soon but the most important thing...
The team of children, led by Mrs. Seddon have had a very productive start. Pupils from Golden Gate and Grand Canyon have been writing letters to try to persuade business and garden centres for donations linked to our allotment topic. We have been very lucky to receive lots of seeds and even vouchers that have been spent on lots...
The children have loved the book ‘Varmints’ and were aiming to persuade the main character to either stay or go. Following their first draft, the children looked at some evidence of wow sentences found in envelopes underneath some trays - they analysed why they were considered to be persuasive and aimed to write their own wow sentence entering it...
Comgratulations to all of our school council members for their recent elections by their peers!
They have already voted for the chair, secretary and all year 6 have been so helpful to the younger councillors. The children have been asking the whole school about possible reasons for what we can raise money for. I for one am incredibly excited about...
This week, we have been bidding farewell to our dear “pet” mealworms. We have nurtured them from larva, to pupa, and now to adult beetle stage, and the time has come to send them into the wild.
Good luck, darkling beetles. May you have many happy weeks of life in our nutrient-rich fields.
Thank you so much for all of your generous donations to our Harvest Charities this year. We are completely overwhelmed!
Thanks also to all the parents, grandparents and carers who came to join us in our celebration assembly.
We have been working hard to create our poetry. We have been learning about adjectives and verbs, and trying to think of the most effective and interesting vocabulary that we could. We listened to music and watched a video clip to inspire us.
We are really proud of our class effort!
We have been exploring how we can create different shades of grey and blue. The overall outcome will be use our greys and blues to create a stormy sea painting. Rosie has already created her picture, which we have used as a great model to show the class what is expected.
Great painting, but messy!!
We all worked really hard to learn the poem Soggy Greens at home. Rosie created actions too, so she performed them for the class to copy.
A great performance Y1/2 Class!
