We've had a great first couple of weeks in Base 2. I have been so impressed with the way in which everyone has settled back into school life after the summer break.

Our literacy work has been led by the Michael Rosen book, We're Going on a Bear Hunt. This week we finished writing our own stories that followed the same structure of We're Going on a Bear Hunt, but which instead featured all sorts of weird and wonderful creatures in place of the bear! We worked hard on writing super sentences with correct punctuation and including interesting adjectives in our stories — I really enjoyed reading them. Towards the end of the week we started some non-fiction work. We have learnt about different species of bears and how we can construct a fact file to tell people about them.

In maths we have been concentrating on place value and number work. We have been using lots of practical resources to help get to grips with the concept of partitioning numbers into tens and ones and secure our knowledge of the number line.

In geography this week we drew our own maps of the bear hunt story, carefully drawing symbols for each of the settings in the story which we then put into a key. Nobody is going to get lost on their hunt for a bear from our class!

We also used our class text as the stimulus for our music lesson this week. We composed a soundscape to go alongside We're Going on a Bear Hunt using percussion instruments and our voices. We split into groups and each composed a short piece of music for each setting in the story and then put them altogether when the story was read. We all had to listen really carefully to each other and work together as a team. It sounded so good by the end of the day that we invited Base 1 in to watch our performance!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend, all ready for another busy week next week.

Base 3 have been learning all about why the River Nile was so important to the Ancient Egyptians this week. We talked about the many uses the Egyptians had for the Nile such as, fishing, hunting, trade, farming and transport. The children learnt why the land around the Nile was so good for farming, as well as the many uses of the crops that were grown and taken from the river. As a class, we...
