Another busy week in Base 4 has flown by; this term is disappearing very quickly!

We have finished our arguing this week in Literacy. A balanced argument has been written using the necessary features to argue from two points of view. We have had to make sure that we focus on one point at a time and argue for and against it using evidence from the book to support our ideas. The final section of the argument allowed us to state our decision. Next week we are going to be working on instructional writing, to do this we will be analysing a wide range of instructions (including the ones you researched), following instructions (to make some Greek bread) and then writing our own set of instructions, ensuring they are suitable for the reader to follow.

This week in maths we have worked hard to collect, present and interpret data. Drawing line graphs required a significant amount of concentration and care to ensure it was accurate and neat. We then moved on to looking at different graphs and charts, using the data shown in the graph/chart to answer questions and solve problems. Next week we are going to be focussing on Geometry, looking at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes and different triangles (and their properties).

On Tuesday afternoon we continued our Geography work by starting to compare our 3 cities, London, Athens and Rio de Janeiro. We discussed human and physical geography and then carried out research to identify the human geography evident in each city. Next week we will move on to identifying the physical geography in each of the cities and then creating fact files.

In PE this week, we re-capped how to dig a volleyball using control and the correct part of our arms. We then started to learn how to serve a ball in order to begin a game; we received the serve by digging the ball back to our partners. Next week we will continue with learning the volleyball skills, moving on to learning how to receive a ball using a volley.

In DT our designs were completed, the prototypes were made and the final board game has been put into production. We have ensured that we finish edges of the board to the highest quality, to ensure durability and we tried different joins to create playing pieces.

I was very impressed with the effort put into this week's homework task based on Greek food, it was clear that everyone had tried their hardest. Keep up this hard work for the rest of the term.

Enjoy your weekends and rest ready for plenty of learning next week!

We have had a brilliant week in Base 1. In our literacy lessons we have read a little more of our story, Stuck. Floyd really does get in a pickle when not only his kite gets stuck in the tree, but also his favourite shoes. After discussing different emotions and feelings we thought about how Floyd would be feeling. Each of the children got to sit on a special chair where they became Floyd and...

What a busy week it has been in Base 1! We have started looking at the book Stuck by Oliver Jeffers in literacy. We started by looking just at the front cover and making predictions about what we thought the story might be about. There were some lovely ideas about what the little boy might get stuck up the tree and the children were able to link their ideas to personal experiences! When we...
