A very full week for Base 4: creating animals, watercolours of the rainforest, diaries, whilst also doing plenty of maths and writing.

In Literacy this week, we have self and peer assessed our diaries written as Maia from our class text. We then created a booklet which our diary entries would be written in. as we wrote our diaries out we ensured that we were reading our writing to make sure it makes sense, the punctuation is accurate and we have used the best vocabulary. Where we could, we made improvements to our writing, making it the best it can be. We also started to have a look at the Water Cycle which is going to be the focus for our writing next week. We took notes from a video about the key sections of the Water Cycle and identified the key words, ensuring we understood the meanings.

We have been extremely busy in maths, putting our addition and subtraction skills to the test with some very challenging problems; some of them made our brains hurt. We had a go at some missing digit problems, where we were only give the answer to a question or where a few digits were missing from the question. To check our answers we learnt how to use the inverse operation to ensure the answers were correct; we will now be able to use this all the time! We have also had a look at a range of problems with more than one step, choosing which operations and methods to use. Next week, we will be finishing off addition and subtraction and then moving onto multiplication and division.

We refined our skills in using water colour paints, making sure that we weren't using too much paint and mixing colours to get different shades of brown and green to bring our rainforest sketches to life. They now look fantastic and will be copied to be used as backgrounds for our writing.

The classroom became very messy on Tuesday afternoon; we had tissue paper, crepe paper, pastels, newspaper, paints and paper. We were of course making some rainforest animals to be put into the correct layers of our classroom rainforest. The rainforest is now populated with toucans, snakes, butterflies, iguanas and even a piranha!

Next week, we will be doing some Geography work focusing on rivers. We will be looking at key terms used when describing a river, the creation of a river and the journey a river takes from start to end.
I was very impressed with the effort put into the rainforest posters the children made at home, keep up the hard work with homework, it all helps our learning in school!

Well done to our footballers this week, who played in a tournament against 6 other school. It was a great evening at Nantwich Town Football Club. The children played very well as a team and represented the school well, they should be proud of themselves once again. Thank you to all the supporters, Mrs Winward and Mr Goodwin.
