We have all enjoyed doing our class advent calendar with a maths problem a day!

This week in Literacy we have been using informal language to write a letter telling a friend all about a terrible train journey. We had a look at using brackets and dashes to add extra detail into our sentences and using these in our letters. We have also focused on self-assessing our work, working out what needs to be improved and where punctuation has been missed. Next week, we will be using a Christmas story to inspire our story writing.

In maths we used our measuring skills to accurately measure different objects (including ourselves) in different units of measurement. We then had to convert between various units of measurement in order to record our results and solve a puzzle. We got out the trundle wheels and went outside to measure the size of the playground in metres; we used our measurements to calculate the perimeter and area of the playground. Next week we will continue with measuring, but this time we will measure composite rectilinear shapes to work out the perimeter and area accurately.

This week has been particularly exciting for everyone in Base 4; we had to prepare for some special visitors. On Thursday our special visitors, the Dragons (Mr and Mrs Smith), came to see each enterprise group deliver their presentation for their games made from recycled material. We have spent time this week creating a PowerPoint (using our ICT skills), including the information that we think the Dragons would need to know about our company, including costs, profit, market day and the team. We also spent some time answering some questions that we thought the dragons might ask us so that we were fully prepared to present confidently like business men and women. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the visit from the Dragons and got a lot of tips, but they could only pick one winner to go onto the next stage of the challenge. The winners were 'TIN CAN ALLEY' and they will go onto compete against other businesses from other schools. I am very proud of everyone in Base 4, they all put in a lot of effort and the Dragons complimented them all on how well spoken each child was (they said the groups were the best they had seen!!); you should all be very proud of yourselves.

A big well done to all the children that took part in the indoor athletics competition on Monday, you all worked really hard and worked well as a team. I was very proud to take you to represent Wrenbury Primary School! Well done to the children that remained at school, helping to tidy the classroom up, you deserved the opportunity to try out the new outdoor equipment.

Next week will be a mix of things to finish off our learning journey books, including some geography and science.

I am very impressed with the effort put into learning our spellings this week; we are doing so well, keep it up!

Reminders:

Keep learning your times tables, I will be testing you next week. Homework for this week must be returned on Tuesday done to the best of your ability!

Enjoy the Christmas fair and your weekend!

Also as part of our harvest preparations it was our job to find out about how bread is made, so our learning this week was all focussed...
