On Friday 1R had their class assembly. It was all about Kenya and Handa’s Surprise. Handa’s Surprise is a book they have been learning about in Year 1. They all delivered their lines clearly and there were lots of happy mums and dads. We all learnt lots of amazing facts from the children. Finally, they sang a song and even got the audience to join in! Well done 1R.

On Tuesday afternoon the whole school had a nice surprise – Mr Froud came and sang some songs. The whole school loved him and clapped along at some of the songs and even joined in at the actions. All of the reception children loved him because they laughed along with everyone and to be honest they all laughed the most! Every teacher who was there clapped along and had good fun too. Also the teachers adored the younger ones laughing.Thank you Mr Froud we look forward to seeing Mr Froud again.

Here are some top tips on how to stay safe around Bonfire Night:
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU CARRY FIREWORKS IN YOUR POCKET!
THEY COULD SET OFF!
~You should always keep all of your pets indoors
~ You should make sure that there is somebody with the pets because they could get scared from hearing the bang from the fireworks
~Don’t go too close to the fireworks and always make sure that there is an adult with you
~To stay extra safe, make sure that your hand is at the end of the wire
~When the sparkler has finished don’t touch the burned end because you could get burned hands that will scar
~Always make sure that an adult is closer to the fire than you are
~If possible ask the organiser to put safety tape around the bonfire
~Don’t go near the fire

Since we joined Blakehill we have always wanted to be involved in school life and we found that the blog was the perfect way to be at the heart of what goes on in the school and sharing it for everyone to see. We both love to write and type which are good skills to have when it comes to blogging.
If you are interested in becoming a Blakehill Blogger, speak to Mr Lowe or Miss Lea and tell them why you would make such a good blogger.
