Leavers' breakfast

Dear Parents,

Just a reminder about our Year 4 leavers' breakfast next Tuesday where we will be celebrating your child's time at Blackwell First School. It will start at 8.40 and will last approximately an hour.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Many thanks,

Miss Townsend

Year 3s - Singmaker 2014

Just a reminder to all Year 3s that you need to bring two packed lunches for tomorrow and plenty to drink as you are at the Artrix all day and then have a performance in the evening. You will not need to bring your book bag or swimming kit to school.

 

 

Fantastic news!

Well done to all the bell-boaters today. You were fantastic with team B coming a brilliant third in their final, and team A coming an amazing second in theirs and second overall! Out of 30 teams too! That is an incredible achievement and I am extremely proud of all of you. That is the best bell boating achievement at Blackwell to date! The plaque will be pride of place in the entrance hall soon.

You're all super stars!

Bell boating

Just a reminder to Y4 children to have a sun hat, sun cream and packed lunch (with at least 2 drinks) with them on Monday and Tuesday this week. Jogging bottoms and trainers can be worn to school on both days too.

Many thanks,

Miss Townsend

Sporting Stars

Well done to everyone for their great effort and sportsmanship during sports day. It was lovely to see you all taking part, trying your best, being competitive and enjoying yourselves. I would also like to say a special thank you to Mrs Webb for organising such a successful morning.

Your sport continues tomorrow - remember your swimming kits.

See you in the morning.

P.S. I have put a sporting activity on the School Wall!

National School Sport Week

Hello Children,

 

This week is National School Sport Week so all of your learning will be focused on sport. Year 4s start the week bell-boating at Upton Warren and then on Thursday you are all taking part in our annual sports day. This year it has a World Cup theme and you will all be competing for a country - Spain, Australia, Brazil and Japan (unfortunately most of these countries have already been eliminated!) and at the end the World Cup champions will be revealed! In Literacy you will be writing poems linked to sport and in Art you will be creating a World Cup trophy to present to a child of your choice.

 

Fingers crossed the weather remains dry. Please remember to bring a sun hat, sun cream and water bottle with you to school each day so that you all keep safe taking part in the sports and at playtimes.

 

See you tomorrow for a week filled with sport.

Bell boating days

Just a reminder that all Y4 children will need to come to school in jogging bottoms and trainers (wellies are not needed) on the three days that we are bell-boating. On each day the children need a packed lunch and at least 2 drinks and please ensure your child has a sun hat and sun cream with them.

 

Many thanks - yet more exciting times!

 

Miss Townsend

We're back!

I would like to say a big well done but also a big thank you to all Year 4 children who made our 2014 residential to Malvern a wonderful experience! Your attitude every day (and even this morning when late nights were beginning to take their toll) was fantastic, giving everything a go with smiles on your faces throughout.  You enjoyed challenging yourself throughout, achieving things that seemed a bit scary beforehand, such as the climbing wall, zip wire and the tunnel of doom!! Kate and Heather told me as we left that your behaviour was so excellent that you made their three days really enjoyable and with your brilliant co-operation, desire to learn and positivity they only wished we could come and stay each week!

 

Please tell your grown ups all about your trip (maybe tomorrow after a good night sleep) and I'm sure they will be delighted when you tell them that you all now know how to make your own bed and your own sandwiches!!!

 

Sleep tight tonight, have a lie in if you can and I'll see you bright and breezy in the morning.

 

Love from Miss Townsend xxx

 

Malvern news

Hello Everyone back at school,

 

Here we are in sunny Malvern. We arrived at 10.30am and have had a great walk up the beacon this afternoon. Tonight we will be on a Wild Wood Walk and orienteering! Everything is lovely and we are all happy.

 

Love from Mrs Moss, Miss Townsend and all of the children in Year 4 x x

Farmer's Market

Just a reminder that Blue and Green Classes will be running an organic farmer's market on the playground this Thursday at 2.45pm - 3.15pm. There will be plants and tasty treats for you to buy.

Monday Morning

All of the children are extremely excited about our trip next week and have been asking LOTS of questions! So I have put a few reminders for them on here to hopefully clarify some things.

  • Children do not need to come to school in school uniform
  • Children will not need their book bags
  • Homework can be handed in the following Monday
  • Children need to bring their lunch and drink in a small rucksack (food and drinks are only needed for Monday lunchtime)
  • Children need to bring a water bottle so it can be used during the three days
  • Wellies, sun hats and sun cream are essential!

Malvern

Dear Children,

 

This time next week our bags will be packed! I am very much looking forward to our residential at Malvern. Please check that you have handed the letters you received last week to your grown ups at home and return the forms back to me as soon as possible (Wednesday at the latest). If there is anything you are unsure about ask me during the week. I have put a task on the School Wall to get you into the Malvern spirit!

 

See you in the morning.

Well done

What excellent ideas and work posted on the School Wall so far this holiday. I have enjoyed reading your posts and look forward to more over the weekend. I wonder who will be top of the star tree when we return. Keep up the hard work.

P.S. If you have any ideas for activities linked to food or farming, post a message to me on My Wall and I'll see what I can do!

Voices and Visions

For all children who are taking part in Voices and Visions at Worcester Cathedral on Monday 9th June, due to only one ticket per child being allocated, we welcome other family members who are unable to attend to watch our dress rehearsal in the school hall on Friday 6th June at 3.15pm.

 

Many thanks.

Happy Holidays

I hope you all have a restful and happy holiday. Well done for all of your hard work over the last few weeks and for making a brilliant class library. I'm looking forward to reading all of your stories. You will be able to borrow books from your library when you return to school.

 

Keep reading and practising your times tables during the holiday and I'll look forward to seeing you after the break with an exciting new topic.

 

Love from Miss Townsend xxx

New School Wall activities for the holidays

Hello Blue Class. I have added three exciting School Wall activities for you to take part on during the holidays linked to our new topic 'Food and Farming'. There is one online game which will help develop your mental maths skills. Enjoy learning and earning some stars and shields!

Bell-boating

What a brilliant day we had on Wednesday, bell-boating along the Alvechurch canal. Mr Train was very impressed with your technique and determination and he said with a few more sessions at Upton Warren to help develop your stamina we will be serious title contenders at the annual Bromsgrove regatta! Wow!

 

Mrs Moss and I had a very pleasant day with you all, learning about the history of canals, spotting wildlife such as herons and the bluebell wood and chatting with the house boat residents, holiday makers and fishermen. Thank you children for once again being exceptionally well behaved enabling us all to have fun and learn so much.
