We've had a lovely week in Base 3, with everyone working hard and having a go. I have seen a big change in the children's attitude towards their learning and they are perservering when faced with a challenge. Keep it up!!

In Literacy this week, we have been working on the use of speech marks to show speech within writing. We began with role play outside in the sunshine. We had to put our feet into the shoes of Omri and the Native American from our class story. We acted out the moment when Omri discovered the Native American alive in the cupboard. We then used this to put it into speech using speech marks correctly. Following this we planned out a story focusing on the second time Omri saw the Native American, ensuring we included where we could put speech in. Next week we will finish off our stories and edit them, we will then move onto writing instructions.

In Maths, everyone has worked very hard with the challenges they faced. We have all been working on different aspects of number and place value that we needed t master. Some of us have worked with number lines and solving problems using number lines (including negative numbers for year 4), others have been working on some challenging problems that require trial and error. Next week, we will be moving onto addition and subtraction, with a focus on written methods and applying these in different ways.

On Tuesday afternoon we continued with our Science on rocks. We discovered what permeable and impermeable meant and then tested different kinds of rocks to see whether or not rocks were permeable or impermeable. We found that granite was one of the only rocks we tested that was permeable and the majority were impermeable. Next week, we will be discovering how rocks were formed and the three types of rocks there are.

We have continued with our tepees; we first created our own designs that we could use on our tepees using examples, then we put our designs onto the fabric. We then got out the fabric paints and used colours similar to what the Native Americans would have used. They look fabulous and are ready to be put together next week.

Please remember to read, learn spellings and times tables and do you homework.

Enjoy the sunshine and get some fresh air!!
