Another brilliant week for Base 3!

In literacy, we started the week by looking at non-chronological reports and how we could use one to write about the river wildlife from our book 'The Wind in the Willows'. The children decided that first they would need to find out lots of information about the animals, diet, appearance, habitat and even a couple of extra 'interesting facts'. The children used their research to plan their report and went on to practice writing some sentences using coordinate and subordinate conjunctions. This week we will be putting everything we have learnt together to create our final piece.

This has, again, linked very nicely with our science this week as we have learnt about the different types of skeletons animals and humans have. The children were introduced to lots of new vocabulary such as, vertebrate, invertebrate, exoskeleton, endoskeleton and hydrostatic skeleton! I wonder if they can explain the meaning of one of these to you? Later in the week, we learnt about various different bones in the human body then compared the human skeleton to a mole, badger and toad skeleton. The children loved spotting the similarities and differences.

In maths we have continued to work on shape and have used our knowledge of the many different properties to describe a variety of 2D shapes. The children then used Venn diagrams and Carroll diagrams to sort the shapes based on different properties they may have. This week we will be moving onto 3D shapes and their properties.

During the afternoons this week, we will start to look at rivers in more detail such as, the water cycle, the journey of the river and the features of a river. Finishing the week with your homework presentations of rivers from around the world. I look forward to seeing them!

Base 3 have been learning all about why the River Nile was so important to the Ancient Egyptians this week. We talked about the many uses the Egyptians had for the Nile such as, fishing, hunting, trade, farming and transport. The children learnt why the land around the Nile was so good for farming, as well as the many uses of the crops that were grown and taken from the river. As a class, we...
