Miss Phillips: March 2017
We've had another busy week in Base 3 again, with a specific focus on all of us having a go when we are faced with a challenge.
In Literacy this week, we had a table full of sand, shells, drift wood, stones and coconuts, whilst we had the sounds of the ocean playing in the background. Our job was to describe everything we could see, touch, taste, hear and smell, we then used this to write a setting description for our new book, Tortuga by Paul Geraghty. We were working very hard to make our writing as interesting as we could, using adverbs, prepositions, adjectives and a range of sentence openers. Next week, we will transfer this descriptive writing into extending a section of the story.
In Math, we have been working on equivalent fractions and year 4 have been finding equivalent decimals too. We have used fractions walls and pictures to help us understand equivalent fractions which are very challenging, but we had a go and we got there. Next week, we will be doing some problem solving with equivalent fractions and then moving onto comparing, ordering, adding and subtracting fractions, including some problem solving throughout.
In PE this week, we transferred all of our football skills that we have been learning over the last few weeks into mini games. We focused on passing and making sure we were moving into a space towards the goal so that we had a chance to shoot. Next week, we are going to focus on game tactics and playing a larger game with a bit of competition.
We had our last swimming session this week, well done to everyone in Base 3. I have seen huge improvements over the few weeks of swimming, you should all be very proud of what you have achieved.
Next week, we will be doing some Science, finishing off the Magnets topic that we have been working on and doing some Geography by mapping out Michael's journey on the Peggy Sue, whilst also finding out about some of the countries.
Reminders: Homework is all due Monday 13th March!!
Please keep practising spellings and times tables.
Make sure you're reading as much as possible.
Remember practise makes perfect, and we CAN all do it if we put our minds to it!!

I would like to share something that happened yesterday in school...something that went beyond 'We all matter' in my eyes.It was Alesha's birthday. She arrived in school with a big, birthday badge pinned to her uniform sweatshirt and with a birthday balloon. I assumed it was Alesha's balloon. It wasn't. Alesha had brought in the birthday balloon to give William, in her...
