Due to the COVID-19 response, Bledington Primary School is only open for the children of critical workers and those who are vulnerable who cannot be safely cared for at home. Please complete the Key Worker Form if you need to request emergency child care. Please keep safe and keep well
In Blue class, we are taught by Mrs Rollins and helped by Miss Nessling and a wonderful range of amazing volunteers and helpers across the week.
Hi Blue Class. I am glad you found our page!
See the timetable below to show you (roughly) what you might want to be doing each day. Of course, your daily timetable might look quite different and that's fine - but this shows the work I will be setting for the week ahead!
Any problems? Just email me!
Hi Guys - Welcome to the Summer Term!
I hope you had an amazing Easter Holiday and got to be outside enjoying the lovely sunshine. I can see some of you have sent me amazing zoos that you have designed, stories and poems you have written and I can't wait to read the posts on our blog about everything you have been up to!
Welcome to our brand new term!
The lovely summer term when we can get outside and explore lots of new things. As I am sure you know, we are not back at school yet, so we will explore new things online instead.
Our new topic is 'In Our Neighbourhood', where we will be using all we have learnt about the Romans to compare it to everything we know about our local area - plus a special area in Wales we will be comparing too as well! It will bring together all our map and Geography skills with our History skills as well.
Find below the usual topic grid which gives an overview of everything we will be looking at between now and the May Half-term (online, or back at school, whatever happens). Listed underneath are the overviews of the lessons for the week plus the Literacy, Maths and Topic worksheets. I have also put here the 10 question Maths starters and some new Imagination Writes for the coming week.
Please remember, these are there to help you but are not a firm expectation to be completed on each day. I am just so happy to see all the little bits you send me and I love to hear how you have been learning life skills too!
I hope you are all still happy and healthy.
Hi Blue Class,
Can you believe it has been a whole term again - if we were at school we would be preparing for May Pole! I miss you all lots and can't wait to see you all again, when we can. At least the wonderful sunshine means you can all be out and about getting lots of fresh air. I hope you are all still happy and healthy and planning lots of fun things to fill your half term!
Hi guys! I can't believe it is May and we are not back at school yet!
Do remember, Friday is a bank holiday so no school work for then! Why not do something to celebrate VE Day!
A brand new week and I am so glad to see you back for more learning!
I had a few people mentioning last week they were struggling with internet connections and downloading so many files (and word documents) so I have made sure all files are now PDF's. I have also combined all Maths work for each year group into one file - with the days of the week at the top. Hopefully, you would now only need to download one file and then use it offline for the rest of the week - I hope this helps!
I have left last weeks work up just in-case anyone missed bits and still wants to access it - but please don't get muddled. I have tried to keep it apart with a big blue heading!
Thank-you for all of your wonderful emails last week - I am enjoying keeping in touch with you all and hearing your great stories! Keep the work coming in and Well Done everyone for being such great home learners!
Work for the Week Beginning 23rd March
All work below here is from last week - but left here just in-case anyone needs it.
Our Current topic is 'Rotten Romans'
This term our topic is ‘Rotten Romans' where we will be using our knowledge of Pompeii from last term and comparing it to the rest of the Empire. We will be exploring our chronology skills as we look into how the Empire expanded as well as the impact the Roman's had on our lives today.
In Literacy, we will be using the book 'Window' by Jeannie Baker, along side others, to look at poetry and narrative writing. In Maths we will be taking another look at fractions as well as recapping our Multiplication and Division knowledge, while in Science we will be looking at forces, motion and magnets.
Click below for a link to a typing speed challenge. In class we are working on our typing skills and this game will help us all.
Mrs Rollins speed: 50 words per minute.
Can you beat me?
In Literacy, we work hard on a range of skills, both in Reading and Writing. Everyday we have a spelling and phonic session looking at age-appropriate rules and patterns, a Writer's Toolkit session looking at Grammar and Punctuation and a Guided Reading session looking at our comprehension and inference skills. In our main Literacy lesson, we look at reading and writing skills, both composition and creative skills. We often use to Drama to help us understand better the texts we are looking at and Talk for Writing skills help us get ready to get our ideas down on paper.
Each child has their own school reading book, chosen with an adult from school library at an appropriate reading band for that child. Your child will bring this home, along with their 'READ book' - this is their reading diary where they need to record what and when they are reading. In this book will also be a READ activity; a specific task we would like your child to complete to help support their comprehension of the text they have brought home. This task should be completed once a week and brought back to be checked by an adult. Reading books can be changed twice a week but we expect children to have their school reading book and READ book in school every day.
If your child would also like to read books from home, that is very much encouraged! Please write any extra books you also read at home in your READ book so we can see the wide range of literature you are getting through! If you have a request for the school library, a book you would love to find on the shelves to have as a school reading book, please pop a note in the requests box on the shelf and we will see what we can do!
In Blue Class we are working very hard on our Maths Passport targets; learning all of our number bonds, times tables, division facts and mental maths skills. We are trying our hardest to make sure we know all our times tables, even 12x12 by the end of Year 4! Every child has their own targets which can be worked on by following the link below...
