Miss Phillips: January 2018
Another busy week in Base 2!
In Literacy we have been learning about The Great Fire of London through a timeline of events. We learnt the events that took place during the time that the fire burnt. We found out where it started, what the people did, how they put the fire out and how long it lasted for. Ask anyone in Base 2 if you'd like to find out more about it! Next week, we are going to be learning about Samuel Pepys, who is a very important person from the time of the Great Fire of London. Following that, we will be starting a new book that will lead our literacy lessons for the next few weeks.
We have continued working with fractions this week, using the bar model to help us find fractions of amounts. This was challenging however everyone persevered with it and made excellent progress. We could then apply this to comparing fractions of amounts and missing number problems. Next week, we are taking a break from fractions (but we will be revisiting them) and moving into money.
Our geography this week took us all around the world learning the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world. We were then able to use the atlas to help us label these on maps. Next week we will complete our work in music by singing in a round with 5 groups, whilst playing instruments and then we will learn to play London's Burning on a xylophone.
On Wednesday we welcomed Mr Boyles who will be joining us every Wednesday morning and working alongside different groups of children in Base 1 and Base 2. The children very much enjoyed meeting him and are looking forward to the next time he is in school.
We have Base 2's Grandparents lunch to look forward to this Wednesday! I look forward to seeing you all and the children are excited to share that time with you.
Please keep practising spellings, times tables and keep reading. All of these are really important for your supporting your learning in English and Maths.

Another lovely week in our key worker bubbles in school this week!In Base A, our year threes have been taking our writing about portraits last week one step further in art by creating our own self portraits.
