Miss Phillips: October 2017
Another very busy week in Base 2 with everyone trying very hard in all lessons, which has been lovely to see.
We have been working very hard on recognising different types of words this week and being able to explain what adjectives, nouns and verbs are and then using a range of these in our writing. Our writing has been based on character descriptions. We planned a character description using adjectives and noun phrases to describe what Traction Man looks like but also what kind of person he was. We all tried to use adventurous vocabulary including courageous and extraordinary. We were then able to use our plans to write a description of Traction Man from the front cover. On Friday, we then put all of our descriptive writing skills to the test when we had to design our own character and then write a character description. Next week, we will be finishing off our unit of work with Traction Man by finishing off with some story writing.
In Maths, we have been adding numbers using practical and visual methods. we have been working on adding two single digit numbers, 3 single digit numbers and 2 digit numbers add a 1-digit number, with some of us moving onto problem solving. Next week, we will finish off our work on addition and link this to subtraction.
We had such a lovely afternoon on Tuesday celebrating the Harvest in church. It was lovely to see all of the children's hard work pay off in a fantastic Harvest service. The singing was lovely and they sang without any words which is very impressive. All of the speakers did an excellent jo as well. Well done to all of the children and thank you to everyone who joined us in church. Another thank you also goes to those who have donated to the food bank to help others.
In art we completed our drawings of the backgrounds in the style that Lowry drew during the Victorian era. We have been working on pencil control and ensuring we used lighter pencil lines, followed by using charcoal to add depth to the drawings. Next week, we will be doing a drawing in the style of Lowry using the skills we have learnt so far and we will also be having a go at using water colours.
Well done to those children that are climbing the reading ladder, it is great to see fantastic enthusiasm towards reading. Keep it up!! Keep practising spellings and times tables as well!
