Miss Davies: March 2016
Another wonderful week in Base 2!
I must mention how fabulous the children looked on World Book Day as they had all made such a wonderful effort and looked brilliant! A huge thank you to the children and of course to the adults at home. All of the children were able to share their character names and which book they were from.
There were a lovely range of characters- Pippi Longstocking, The Enormous Crocodile, Charlotte from Charlotte's Web, The Roly Poly Bird, Hermione Granger, Charlie from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory not to mention a selection of fairy tale princesses! I have named just a handful of the amazing costumes, without exception the children looked great! We spoke not only about the importance of reading but also about how much the children enjoy reading themselves and listening to stories. Base 2 took the opportunity to write descriptions of their character in literacy using adjectives, similes and different sentence starters.
In maths this week we have finished our work on measuring length using non-standard and standard units. We have started our work on measuring mass/weight and had a very interesting lesson involving baked beans and sugar! The children learnt the difference in weight between grams and kilograms, holding a single baked bean as 1g and a bag of sugar as 1kg to understand the difference. The language of mass was discussed- light, heavy, lighter than, heavier than. We will focus on packaging next week,putting weights in order as well as weighing items and reading scales. Then we will discuss the measurement of capacity.
Base 2 have shared the story of the Prodigal Son in R.E this week. We have discussed the definitions of forgiveness, love, prodigal and inheritance as this was the main language in the tale. The children have created story boards to show the key events in the story and some have re-told the story in written form.
More learning next week! Have a great weekend!
