Miss Phillips: March 2018
What a fantastic week back, after a lovely half term, Base 2 have had! Everyone has come back well rested and ready to learn which has shone through everything we have achieved this week. It's been a very busy week back and we have another four busy weeks to look forward to. It was lovely to see so many parents this week at parents evening and it was lovely to share how well everyone is doing. Any support at home will have a great impact on the children's learning in school, so please keep supporting as well as you have been doing.
In Literacy, we have written a letter to Rally Rabbit in the hope that he will return all of the books he stole from us before half term. We worked on using subordinate conjunctions and including questions in our writing which everyone tried very hard to do. We had some lovely sentences and it was great to hear the children's ways of helping Rally Rabbit to stop stealing. Next week, we will be jumping into Rally Rabbit's shoes and write a diary from his point of view.
In maths we have pushed our addition and subtraction skills to using two digit numbers. To add or subtract two digit numbers we have used a number line to help us which is sometimes a challenge but with some perseverance and practise it will help us. Next week we will continue to add and subtract larger numbers and apply the skills across a range of questions.
Thursday was World Book Day and our classroom was full of characters from a wide range of stories. It was great to see all of the children's costumes and enjoy a Roald Dahl themed lunch. We watched a video created especially for World Book Day which was about different children's illustrators. They showed us the techniques they used to illustrate different stories. Following this we discussed our favourite illustrator.
Next week we will be starting this term's unit in science which is looking at living things and their habitats including plants. I'm looking forward to exploring this with the children and carrying out a scientific experiment.
Keep reading as much as possible, practise your spellings and keep learning your times tables, you're all doing so well!
