Meerkat mail

Everybody in Base 2 has worked really hard this week. As a whole school we are working on having a positive mindset and I am really seeing this make a difference in the classroom. We are no longer put off when work is tricky or we make a mistake but just keep trying and work together until we are successful. It is lovely to see.

In literacy we have been enjoying meeting Sunny the meerkat from 'Meerkat Mail'. We started the week by giving opinions on whether we thought he should leave his family or stay at home where they are safe together. Adventurous Sunny decided (against some of our warnings) to leave his home and go to stay with some relatives but Sunny keeps moving on because no where is quite right. We decided we had a solution to Sunny's problem because we know a perfect place to live — right here in Wrenbury! So, the children set about writing to Sunny to invite him to come and stay. The invitations were wonderful and highlighted all of the children's favourite things about Wrenbury. On Monday we will find out if Sunny took us up on the offer and decided to come and stay!

In maths we have been working on telling the time. The year 1 children have to tell the time to the hour and half past, while the year 2 children have to add quarter past and quarter to to their repertoire. We have been practising at every opportunity and I have been so impressed with everybody's efforts. Please keep practising this at home!

In our geography lessons this week we have learnt the difference between physical and human geography and then thought about what human and physical geography there was around us in Wrenbury. The children worked together to come up with a Wrenbury 'top 10' which included both human and physical geographical features. This has been good preparation for thinking about how the human and physical geography is different in Africa.

All of this sunshine is very good for our beans that are growing nicely. We keep popping out to check on them and keep them watered.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.

Another wonderful week in Base 3.Refugee Week! We began our week with our assembly about Refugee Week. Having listened to the story "My Name is not Refugee" we took one page of it which introduced us to the idea of what it would be like to live in a place with no running water and where there was no-one to collect the rubbish — in fact if you could live somewhere like that. The...
