'Knowing we are loved, we learn and grow to be the best that we can be.'

Monday 8th Feb

Good Morning!   


The last week before half term and spring feels just around the corner.  Have a look at Luca's signs of spring documents and listen to the birdsong he recorded.


This week we are recapping and making secure all of our learning from this half of term.  Due to the parent consultations taking place over Zoom, our next Zoom will be reading on Wednesday and Friday at 10am.  Safer Internet Day is on Thursday and each day I will be putting on an activity connected with being safe on the internet.


On Friday, there will be a virtual school disco so that we can get together.  

Spellings and Handwriting


Our Mondays always start the same:


1. New spellings to copy up and practise your handwriting at the same time. 

2. Then write one sentence using each word in context.

3. Finally ask an adult to test you on them at home.




Please watch the video below which explains what you should be doing today. 


Completing Activities 6 & 8

1.    Your task is to fill in Activity 6 on page 12 of your Monsters booklet.  Some of this information, you can copy from your annotated artwork.  These will be very short bullet point.


For a WAGOLL artwork monster, go and look at Bailey's or May's which are really well annotated.  Try and think of 4 points for each heading on page 12.


2.  Then transfer that information onto Activity 8 on page 14 in note form.  You will be adding just a little more information than you have in Activity 6.  At this point, try and think of one WOW word for each section, that you have magpied from the original, ie, "gnarled"

We need each and every one of you from  Year 6 to log in and answer as many questions as possible during this time. Only correct answers between 8.30am and 6pm will count towards our school’s total. We of course will have a winning class within our school but oh, wouldn’t it be wonderful if Blandford St Mary came as far up that DSAT leadership board as possible too! We were 3rd overall last time,which is pretty impressive considering some schools have double the number of children.


The DSAT competition is on! We are up against 22 other schools, and competing within the Forum Hub of 5 schools.  Please go on as much as you can, but it has to be before 6pm to count.



Please watch the video below which will explain what you need to do to summarise your learning for history for this half of term.


The explanation is also here:- 


This is the final Week on our history topic of Ancient Greece, and I would like you to pull together your learning on Ancient Greece.

Week 1 – You looked at how Ancient Greece was organised with its area having its own set of rules and customs.

Week 2 – You looked at how we know about Ancient Greece from archaeology and the legend of the Minotaur

Week 3 – You looked at the Golden Age of Greece and how their civilisation was so advanced

Week 4 – You looked at the Gods that the Greeks believed in.

Your task:  Create an A4 information poster that will give information on one aspect of Ancient Greece

You could choose from:-

  1. History Of The Olympic Games,
  2. The Gods The Greeks Believed In,
  3. Greek Mythology  (myths such as Theseus and the Minotaur/Medusa/Pandora’s Box/Jason and the Golden Fleece)
  4. Democracy in Greece


Your poster should have more text than pictures, and you should complete this on paper, not on a laptop.  Any pictures should be drawn/copied not printed and writing should be in pen, as it would be in school.

The theme for Safer Internet Day 2021 is… An internet we trust


This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explores reliability online. The campaign will focus on knowing what to trust online and the strategies that young people use to question, challenge and change the online world. The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, and can help us see the world from different points of view.


But how do we separate fact from fiction, the genuine from the misleading? How do we decide what to believe online, and what’s the impact of dealing with fake content and experiences?
