Miss Phillips: February 2019
We have had a lovely week in Base 2, with a lot of laughs and new learning.
We began our week by transforming ourselves into Noi from the Storm Whale in Winter. We discovered that Noi really missed his friend, the Storm Whale, so we decided to become Noi and write a letter to the Storm Whale telling him how we are feeling and that we have been searching far and wide around the beach hoping that he would come back to visit us. These letters were fantastic with alternative words for sad being used, plenty of conjunctions and sentences punctuated correctly. We are also developing our skills of editing our writing very well, making sure we use resources to help us. After some excellent letter writing, we ventured further into the book and started to ask some questions to show our understanding of what we have read so far. Next week, we will be documenting Noi's day by ordering the event and writing a recount of what he did throughout the day.
In Maths we have made a start on exploring and understanding fractions. We had an excellent session learning about what a fraction is, followed by exploring fractions using play dough. We then used these fractions to shade fractions of shapes and name the fraction of the shape that has been shaded. Next week we will continue to develop our understanding of fractions by finding fractions of amounts.
Our afternoons this week enabled us to start exploring the world, beginning with the world's seven continents and five oceans. We used atlases to label and recreate a map of the world labelling the continents and oceans. Our Atlas work is fantastic and the children supported one another very well. We moved onto recap our work about the UK from last year and built on top of that by naming the seas that surround the UK. Next week, we will further develop of geographical knowledge and move onto exploring coasts.
It's great to see so many of you getting to grips with Times Table Rockstars, it will help you to learn your times tables really well. Keep up the hard work Base 2!
