Mrs Large came to visit Base 2 this Week! It was very exciting, she turned up in her dressing gown and her shower cap!

To prepare for Mrs Large's visit we learnt how to ask and write questions. We explored a range of words we could use to write questions and we made sure we used a question mark. We were then set to write some questions that we would like to ask Mrs Large when she came to visit. Everyone wrote excellent questions using the text to support ideas for questions. The children developed their speaking and listening skills when asking their questions. Next week in Literacy we are going to be writing a non-fiction text about elephants where we will be able to apply our question writing skills.

In Maths we have been subtracting using different methods. Some of us have subtracted using numicon, some of us were working mentally and others moved to subtracting two 2 digit numbers on a number line. Next week, we will continue with subtraction and we will start to apply our skills to some problems.

It was so lovely to see so many of you at the church on Tuesday morning for our Harvest celebration. The children made an excellent effort with their singing and speaking parts, making it a very enjoyable celebration to watch. Thank you to all of the parents who supported us walking to and from the church.

We had another visit in Base 2 this week. Mr Vickers who works on submarines in the Royal Navy very kindly gave up his time to show Base 2 a modern day gas mask that are used by the forces. The children learnt about how to put on the gas mask and how each part helps to protect you when needed. The children asked some excellent questions. All of Base 2 would like to thank Mr Vickers for sharing his knowledge.

Well done to all of the children that have been reading, practising the spellings, learning their times tables and completed their homework. Keep up the hard work, extra learning at home helps us to be more confident with all of our learning.

What a wonderful visit we had this morning! As part of our farming topic, we were visited by two tractors; one old and one new. The children were wowed by them and asked some wonderful questions. They wanted to know how and why the tractors had changed over time, what they were made of and how much weight they could pull. Thank you to the lovely farmers who took time out of their very busy day to...
