Blakeney’s Week in Review 3rd July

Hi Blakeney!


Motivational Speech

Two key messages for you this week:

Here we are again – Friday certainly comes quickly, doesn’t it? Picking up on my messages last week, I just want to reinforce some important facts in your mind about learning and wellbeing -establishing a routine is so important to your mental health and confidence. If you are worried about coming back to school in September, the solution is simple. Start work now – get better at the things you know you need to work on. Develop your confidence and your ‘can do’ attitude. Each day counts and every day is an opportunity to get better at something.





Ms Black’s News

Well I had a hilarious walk with the dog on Wednesday. Jasmine was determined to teach me how to skateboard but I have to tell you – I don’t find it easy! I know it sounds weird but I can’t bear the fact that it moves! Well, Jasmine was holding on to my hand the whole time that I was on it but suddenly the skateboard started to get away from me and it just kept getting further and further away, leaving my right leg behind, on the ground. I have no idea why I kept that other foot on the skateboard, I guess I just panicked and didn’t think fast enough. But that leg just kept going, I kept screaming, Jasmine kept shouting ‘let it go!’ without me listening, until eventually I’d almost done the splits and landed on the floor laughing like a mad-woman! I think if anyone had filmed it, they would be sending it to ‘You’ve Been Framed’ and earning themselves £100.










Has anything funny happened to you over the lockdown period? Do send funny stories to me to share. You can find a funny picture to go with it if you like.

Take care and stay safe

Well done to those of you who have completed the work on Education City. This is how it’s looking so far: Only 5 children have done the reading and 4 children have done the maths. I have also only received work from the HLG tasks this week so I am very concerned that most of you are not helping yourselves to prepare for the Autumn Term. You have until Sunday to complete the Education City tasks so make sure you do please. Also, do let me know if you have any computing issues that prevent you from doing this. You can call the school if you need to or you can send an email.

I can not emphasize enough the importance of continuing your hard work. You all made so much progress this year so don’t let that go to waste by allowing your brains to go off on holiday too soon! Get back to it.

Hot Task Feedback

I have received some more wonderful hot task poetry – Kimberley send hers on Friday but I’d already done the blog. It is such a brilliant poem – I really enjoyed the images she created and I could see she worked really hard to apply the personification skills.  Amanda also did a great job of that – her poem was wonderfully atmospheric.  Take a look for yourselves:

Well done to those of you who have already sent them in.

Blakeney Class Year Book 2020

I have three photos sent in so far Blakeney – still waiting for the rest of you to send your baby pictures in so we can get this funny Year Book thing going! It’s really simple – just find a photo and send it to me at my email address. If you don’t have a photo on your computer, then it’s still simple. Use your mobile phone – take a photo of the photo with your phone, then just send that to me. Couldn’t be easier!

This should be fun, and the more of you that participate, the more fun it will be. Come on Blakeney – let’s do this!

These are the pictures so far:












Well that’s all for now Blakeney. I’m still missing you all so you’d better write to me to make me feel better! I look forward to hearing your news and seeing your work. Send it in to me at: [email protected]  and do pay close attention to what I said at the start of this blog.

Take care (mind and body) and stay safe

Ms Black
