Over the last couple of weeks, Base 3 have been very busy in school. In our maths lessons we have been focusing on place value, looking carefully at the value in each digit and using a range of concrete resources to support our understanding of this. We have been learning about the ways that a number can be partitioned, for example 254 can be split into 200, 50 and 4. We have taken this a step further, using resources to help us, and have also learnt that 254 can be split onto 100, 150 and 4. Using our Base 10 resources has helped us and is something that we have enjoyed.

In our English lessons we have continued our writing about dung beetles, learning how to use headings and how to organise our writing within these headings. We have also been learning how to make our letters tall, all the same size and how to join our handwriting — well done everyone, you have been very focused with this.

In history we have revisited our prior learning by looking back the sources we used in our lessons last year. We have thought about how this knowledge may help us as we learn more about Ancient Egypt. We have also learnt about some key concepts; ancient and civilisation.

In geography we have developed our understanding of what geography is and what we learn about in these lessons. This week we began learning about rivers and used a range of materials to create our own 3D river. We had to think about where rivers started and what they looked like at this point. We also had to think about where a river ended and we learnt that most rivers end at the sea; again we had to think about what the river looked like at this point. Finally we thought about the middle section and what this looked like, was it straight? We thought about what the land around the river was like and what human and physical features would we find there. The children really enjoyed this hands on activity and we will use it to lead in to further learning about rivers.

This week we have also finished our scarab beetles, enjoyed reading lots of lovely books- I think 'Stormy Weather' was a class favourite. We had fun in PE and music, enjoyed our Wrenbury Walks and even managed to share some of the homework projects that you have started at home. Throughout all of this we have constantly been thinking about what skills we need to learn, focusing on our 'achieve' behaviours which we are showing so often in lessons, well done.

I hope that you have a lovely weekend- see you all on Monday!

This week we wanted to share our learning in science; we have been learning about forces. We looked at a range of items and tried to get these to move or change shape. We discovered that we could squeeze, blow, twist, spin and even throw objects to do this. We then realised that all of these verbs could be classified into a push or a pull. We then moved on to learn how items move on different...
