What a busy few weeks we have had in Base 3!

In Maths, we have been carrying on with multiplication and division. The children have been learning how to use written methods such as column multiplication to solve multiplication problems and the bus stop method for division. These concepts have been a lot easier for the children to grasp due to them learning their times tables so well! Keep it up, Base 3!

During Literacy, Base 3 have loved reading 'A Child's Garden'. The children used their knowledge of coordinating and subordinating conjunctions, expanded noun phrases and adverbs to retell the story during assessment week. We are now innovating the characters and the setting to write our very own version of 'A Child's Garden'.

In Science, we have continued with our topic of Light. We investigated how and why mirrors reflect and next week we will be making our own periscopes! We have also discussed the meaning of the words, opaque, transparent and translucent. We used this knowledge and carried out an investigation to decide which material would be the most effective during a blackout in the war!

With Mrs Clarke, the children have been learning all about Hanukkah. Last week the children created the menorah out of Lego, pegs and card, and colourful tape. You can see these on display in the hall!

The children finished off their mobile of the planets (we may have discovered a few more than in real life!) and hung this in the classroom. It looks super! Last week we made astronaut packed...
