Miss Davies: May 2016
What a great week in Base 2! The main event was going to Chester Zoo! We had a brilliant time and enjoyed seeing lots of wonderful animals! The children loved visiting the bats in the bat cave and they were complimented on their excellent quiet behaviour when walking through the cave itself. We also saw rhinos, chimpanzees, lions, crocodiles and dart frogs, as well as enjoying an educational talk about the komodo dragons! We were shown real Komodo dragon venom, it was amazing! A huge thank you to all of the parent helpers, your help was invaluable and we enjoyed having you with us on our class outing! We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did!
Our work in literacy this week has been focused on crocodiles and the children have created their own crocodile character as well as a setting for a crocodile story. We have focused on adjectives, noun phrases and extending sentences using and, if, so, but or because. We have tried very hard to check for errors in our work and to up level and improve our writing. In maths we have been focusing on division. Our work in RE has got us talking about special places of worship and we will be thinking about places that are meaningful to us this week and explaining reasons why.
On a separate note, all children have kept their spellings from last week to practise as usual.
More news next week.

Nine of our young singers, along with Mrs Heaton and myself, visited Wrenbury Nursing Home yesterday to sing a few carols and Christmas songs for the residents. The children were warmly welcomed and sang beautifully. It was lovely hearing some of the residents joining in with the traditional carols: 'O come all ye faithful' and 'In the bleak Midwinter'. Thank you Lola, Orla...
