Living Eggs Project Week 1

Below is a time lapse of the first week of our 2018 Living Eggs Project. Here we see our chicks pipping the shells, hatching and drying out. 


Bedtime Reading Challenge

Well done to the following children whose names were drawn out of the hat. The children won a £5 galleries voucher.

Nursery : Olivia Smith, Reception: Harry Platts, Year 1: Ollie Morton, Year 2: Raisa Ghiban Calugaru, Year 3: Jack Pinnegar, Year 4: Jenny Hartley, Year 5: Callum Forsyth, Year 6: Tom Pinnegar 



School Sport

 Well done to Aaren, Daniel, Layton, Max, Chloe Bulter, Chloe Brown, Ella and Evie from Year 4 who won the tennis tournament at the Puma Centre. The children will compete in the Sunderland finals in June. Year 3 also competed and came 2nd. Well done everyone.

Through an excellent standard of P.E teaching, the amount of extra-curricular P.E offered and participation in inter and intra competitive sport, Blackfell have again been awarded the highest standard of gold through the School Games. Thank you to everyone who helped us accomplish this!  We aim to achieve this high standard again this academic year .
