We have had a good first week back in Base 2 after the half term holiday. Everyone seems well rested and ready to learn.

We have done plenty of super independent writing. We have retold the story of The Grotlyn and written a setting description of a rainforest. Next week we will be writing a fact file about Madagascar and retelling the story The Lion Inside.

In Maths this week we have explored shapes further, identifying the names and properties of 2D and 3D shapes and some of us explored symmetry. Next week we are going to work on multiplication and division, ensuring we have a good understanding of both concepts and applying this to a range of problems.

We completed our computing work, by creating algorithms to travel to the seven continents of the world. This wasn't as simple as it sounds because we had to check our algorithms worked and then debug them when things went wrong to find the problem. In Science we learnt about the growth of humans, offspring and the needs of humans and animals, identifying the differences.

Next week we have plenty more learning to do. We will be presenting some of our Learning Journey work in our books and making a start on our history work about Wangari Maathai.

Keep practicing spellings and times tables and keep reading.
