Miss Phillips: March 2018
Yet another great week in Base 2, with everyone working very hard.
In Maths we have been stretching our multiplication brains using arrays as a way of helping us find and check answers but also using them to solve problems. Because we have learnt our times tables and learnt to count in multiples we have been able to use this to help us. Times tables are very important for all aspects of Maths, please keep learning them daily. Next week we will continue to work on multiplication and look at division.
In Literacy, we have become story tellers and story creators. We read and learnt the story, Wanted! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar. We acted out the story in small groups using so much energy and expression in our voices, they were all fantastic to watch. Following this it was our turn to become story creators using our book as a base. We planned out our characters and what would happen using the boxing up sheet. It was then time to write and everyone tried their very best to make their stories exciting. Next week we will continue to write our stories and then we will be moving onto fairy tales.
In Science we continued to focus on plants by identifying what a plant needs to grow and exploring the school grounds to find different types of plants. We found daffodils, daisies, nettles and dandelions along with other plants we will explore 0n another day. It was then our turn to grow our own plants. Unfortunately, the instructions to grow our sunflowers were all chopped up and in the wrong order, so we had to put them back together to make sure we grew them properly. We were then able to plant our sunflower seeds and leave them to grow. We will be monitoring our sunflowers each week and recording how much they have grown.
Well done for your good attendance this week, being at 98%; let's push for 100% next week and gain a golden ticket!!
Keep practising spellings and times tables at home and please keep reading as many different books as you can.
