Miss Carter: May 2015
We have had an action-packed final week of half term!
Literacy has been focused on our Journey Man story and performance for most of our lessons this week- developing how we can dramatise our ideas effectively using movement and sound for our fast-approaching performance. Very exciting to see the progress being made! We cannot to perform for you all in Nantwich (St Mary's Church) on Saturday 4th July. We have enjoyed another visit from the Journey Man himself this week and our collaborative work so far is very impressive! As well as this, we have been continuing to read on further in our class novel.
The Time Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess-We have started to hear clues about the origin of the cat, Ka, and Literacy homework for the holidays is based on this. Please have a look in your child's book at home for more information.
We have been doing a variety of Maths this week. Year 4s have focused on calculating area of various shapes and perimeter too, and then doing some investigations using these rules. Year 3 have been looking at perimeter also, and how we can find area of simple rectilinear shapes on cm squared paper, by counting squares and multiplying length and width. There has also been lots of measuring going on in Base3- including estimating using cm and mm and converting these measures. All children have been writing cm and mm combined to use a decimal point. Well done! Upon return to school after the holidays, we will be using area to calculate and make some square based pyramid nets as part of our Topic work.
Talking of our Topic, this week has been based on pyramid studies. We have put the burial sites of Ancient Egypt into chronological order and investigated how they evolved. The children have had a more open ended challenge this week to present the information they found about burial sites and pyramids and it has been so fantastic to see their unique and independent ideas presented individually in their topic learning journeys. They are all simply beautiful and presented astonishinigly for Year 3 & 4 children. Super effort!
Star of the week this week is Chloe- for her determination and positive attitide during independent problem solving and investigation in Maths. Well deserved.
Have a fantastic week off everyone- I, for one, am off abroad for a few days :)
Relax and recharge and we'll see you for the final 7 weeks of Summer Term...

Another wonderful week in Base 3.Refugee Week! We began our week with our assembly about Refugee Week. Having listened to the story "My Name is not Refugee" we took one page of it which introduced us to the idea of what it would be like to live in a place with no running water and where there was no-one to collect the rubbish — in fact if you could live somewhere like that.
