Blue Class

Welcome to Blue Class! We hope you enjoy exploring our class page. Miss Meredew is Blue Class teacher on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs McGregor on Thursdays and Fridays. Our class higher level teaching assistant (HLTA) is Mrs Cambridge who will be working in class most days. We are lucky to also have the lovely Mrs Alderton supporting us as our 1:1 class teaching assistants.  
Essential learning can be found on Google Classroom and on this class webpage. This learning covers key words, times table and handwriting practice. Below under 'resources', you can find key spelling words, our Spring planning and Age Related Expectations for Years 3 and 4. 
As the culmination of our term's topic, we used our history and geographical knowledge to design and make an Anglo Saxon settlement. We decided where the "Barrington Blue" tribe would settle and worked in groups to create houses for our settlement. I will upload photos of the completed settlements and large scale houses, but here is the evidence of the fun (and mess) we made!
I am pleased to say the classroom was clean and tidy by the end of the day. 
Well done to all the children for their enthusiastic Design and Technology day as well as their tidying up!
This week we have had a go at creating clothing using Anglo-Saxon techniques. We used natural resources like turmeric and berries to dye wool. Here are some photos of us soaking the wool in the crushed berries and the watered down turmeric paste. 
The children had an absolutely amazing 2 hour session today. Here are some of the photos showing how much fun they had, as well as learning new skills such as indicating with their arm out whilst gliding on their bike. 
We hope it has encouraged some of them to ride their bikes more often, possibly to school regularly.
