What a fabulous, sunny first week back we have had in Base 1! It has been so lovely to see the children full of beans and happy to be back in school!

In our literacy lessons this week we have been doing some work around fairy tales, eventually writing a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk. We have done lots of work on our basic writing skills and consolidating the skills we worked on last term (which everyone has remembered very well!). In maths we have really enjoyed exploring capacity. The reception children had a challenge to complete in the water tray, deciding which would be the best container to give to the giant for a drink and to Jack, they even had a go at measuring how much each would hold. Towards the end of the week the year 1 children solved some very tricky problems, they not only had to use their knowledge of capacity and length but also work together in their teams. We felt that these celebratory photos were necessary after all of the hard work!

As part of our RE work we spent some time this week thinking about what it meant to be thankful. The children all took part in a P4C session, sharing their thoughts and listening carefully to each other. We finished by all taking a turn to share something we are thankful for, so many of the children shared lovely things from their Easter break that they were thankful for and they really appreciated the time and effort that those around them had put in to make sure they had a lovely time. I was so proud of the way the children spoke and it was wonderful that absolutely everyone had something to say.

In our afternoons this week we have enjoyed getting outside to make a start to this term's science work. We learnt about what plants need to grow and survive, and even came up with some catchy actions to help us remember! Then we explored some of the seeds that we have been sent as part of a heritage project Kew Gardens are running. All of the seeds we had to plant are seeds that are native to England and we are looking forward to watching them grow in our garden area. We have planted the seeds inside until they are big enough to go out to face the elements and have used toilet rolls to hold our seeds instead of plastic plant pots. We were very lucky to have two of the children from Base 4 come and talk to us about the work they have been doing about plastic in the environment and why using toilet rolls instead of plastic pots is a more environmentally friendly thing to do. They were fabulous and really inspired us to do our bit and not use so much plastic. Fingers crossed our plants have grown a little bit over the weekend!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are well rested for another action packed week!
