Mrs Heaton: December 2017
What a fantastic week we have had in Base 3 this week.
Our week started with a 'poetry off' with Base 4. The children showed true determination and resilience when they stood up in front of 2 classes and shared their poems. Although the nerves were whizzing round their bodies they presented their work with confidence, projecting their voices clearly and reading with superb expression. We continued our theme of poetry for the rest of the week looking at Haiku poems and a 'when' poem which needed us to use rhyme. Base 3 have a real talent for poetry writing — they have all really enjoyed the freedom that writing poems offers.
During our Maths lessons this week we have continued to look at multiplication and division focusing on problem solving and reasoning. It has been challenging but we are starting to see how we can apply our knowledge. We had a fabulous lesson on Thursday when we played all the brilliant Maths games that the children had created for their homework; I was so impressed with the imagination that they had shown and their resourcefulness.
We managed to complete our catapults this week and finished the week off with a competition to discover which catapult fired the furthest. We were amazed with a phenomenal firing distance of 3.9m. The children have really enjoyed sawing, gluing and piecing together their catapults.
Finally, on Thursday we performed our brass musical extravaganza. The children were truly awesome! They worked so, so hard.
