What a busy couple of weeks we have had in Base 1! Last week we found a crime scene in our classroom when we came in one morning. Our easel had been taken but luckily we found some evidence to help us with our investigation. We all made police badges and set about investigating the robbery. We took photos and wrote evidence lists, interestingly the burglar had left behind 2 stories which gave us more clues as to who the culprit might have been. Thankfully our easel has been returned to us but we have a very good idea who has taken it (has anyone seen Burglar Bill?!). In literacy we have been busy making wanted posters for our police station and writing detailed character descriptions to help the police identify him!

In maths the year one children have been working on subtraction. They have worked practically using cubes and tens frames to understand what it means to 'take away' and we have also looked at pictures to give the subtraction a real life context. Towards the end of the week we learnt about 'fact families' and practised writing 2 addition and 2 subtraction number sentences using the same 3 numbers. The children worked very hard, using their bar models, to do this and they told me it was stretching their brains!! The reception children have been using a lot of numicon and learning which shapes represent which numbers, they have started counting 2 groups of objects or numicon together to find a total and some are starting to have a go at writing their numbers down.

On Monday we had our Remembrance Day service in school so we spent some time in class thinking about why we have Remembrance Day and why we remember by wearing a poppy. The children were wonderfully thoughtful and respectful and so we also made our own poppy field in our outdoor area. Everyone took great care to make their poppies and 'plant' them in remembrance of those people who have put themselves in danger to keep us safe. As part of our history work we also learnt about Edith Cavell, a nurse in WW1, who did everything she could to help the soldiers in her care.

We have also had a visit from Mark Thomas from the RNLI this week to find out about how they help to keep people safe in the water and find out a little bit about the RNLI workers from the past. As you will see from our pictures we learnt a lot and had a lot of fun too (any excuse to dress up!).

I hope that everyone is having a lovely weekend and getting ready for another action packed week this week!
