I can't believe our second week of this half term has finished!
Once again the children have been working very hard

We began the week by reading our book which will lead the topic Amazing Animals — Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett. The children absolutely loved the book and really thought carefully about how Sunny (the meerkat) was feelings at the start of the story. The children had to decide whether they thought Sunny should leave his family or stay with them. They considered the meerkat family motto, STAY TOGETHER, STAY SAFE. The consensus of opinion was that he should stay. The children then enjoyed making freeze frame 'photos to re enact different parts of the story. We started to look at features of postcards and began writing our own.

In Numeracy we have been working really hard on fractions. It really challenged some of the children at first but they persevered and many of them understood how to work out halves and quarters of different amounts. We also continued counting in threes and adding and subtracting 10 to and from two digit numbers.

In Science we have begun learning about animals and their habitats and discussed how we know we are alive! We also considered what we need to stay alive and healthy.

Our topic work was all about Meerkats. The children were buzzing with facts afterwards and they made their own notes about their diet, appearance, habitat and found lots of wow facts! It seems we are building up our own
little family of meerkats or should I say mob of meerkats!

Mrs Pascall was again very impressed with Base 2's recorder playing. The children really look forward to their music lesson.

We have booked our trip to Knowsley Safari Park (Tuesday 12th May) — the children can't wait to drive through the baboon enclosure! I wonder if we will be able to persuade the bus driver to take his coach through? I hope so!

I hope you have a great Bank Holiday weekend and enjoy Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you!!) Sorry , my son's joke!

Have fun!

We've had a fabulous day in Base 1! We started off the day with some yoga which the children did brilliantly. We then talked and learnt all about how to be safe on the road- stop, look, listen, think! Later in the morning, our year 6 buddies came to help us write some instructions for how to cross the road. In the afternoon, our buddies taught us how to cross our pretend road and we talked...
