A great last week to the first half term of 2016. The children have all applied themselves throughout all of our lessons this term and have all enjoyed our range of activities.

In Literacy we finished looking at democracy, so that we had an understanding before carrying out a debate within a democratic society. We were then presented with a question, 'Should Phoenix be the Guinea Pig for Dad's new game?'. As you know the children had a go at this at home, but we needed to develop this further and improve our writing skills for arguing for or against. The class was split into two groups, one voting for and one voting against. Everyone had to write a speech to present to the class to persuade the members of the other side to change their mind during the voting process (just like a democratic society). After half term we will be writing a balanced argument to answer the question, which will require us to make a point, back it up with evidence and explain it.

In maths we have been working on multiplication and division. We have practised using the written method to multiply 4 digit numbers by 2 digit numbers, ensuring we are carefully applying our times tables knowledge. Then, we moved to dividing a 4 digit number by a 1 digit number using the written method, but this time instead of remainders we worked with decimals. We have also been solving a range of problems which have ensured we are applying multiplication, division, multiples, factors, square numbers and cube numbers. After half term we will be carrying out some data handling activities, which will enable us to collect, present and analyse data.

We have finally finished our Ancient Greek Amphora pots and they look fantastic. The children have put a lot of effort into refining their technique when using the paint brush in order to create a precise finish. These look fantastic hung on our walls and placed around the classroom.

After half term, we have got a lot of exciting activities and learning to look forward to, including a Geography comparison study between three countries, a focus on the Olympics, continuing our Science learning about space (time zomes, day and night) and developing our musical skills by playing a range of instruments.

Well done to all of Base 4 for working hard this term, let's keep it up after half term ensuring we complete all of our homework on time (like we have been doing over the past few weeks). Enjoy your half term break and I will see you well-rested and raring to go.
