Miss Phillips: December 2016
Another busy week for Base 3, with still more exciting things to still look forward to in the run up to our Christmas holiday.
This week we have been putting our brains in action to complete a wide range of questions in different formats. We have really showed off what we can do already this year!
In Maths we have been working on measurement, we have all worked very hard on different problem solving activities and some of us have been learning to measure more accurately using decimals. Next week in Maths we are continuing with measurement but our focus will move to money.
In Literacy we have had some excellent writing! We have been writing a non-chronological report about elephants. We explored technical vocabulary, interesting facts, different types of sentences, finding the difference between present and past tense, planning, writing using paragraphs and then editing our spelling independently. I have seen a great improvement in handwriting and making sure our sentences make sense. A great effort in writing from everyone this week. Next week we are going to further develop our non-chronological report writing, by writing about tigers.
We had an excellent afternoon watching Key stage 1's dress rehearsal for their Nativity. We thought all of the children did very well and have clearly tried very hard to learn their lines. Well done to all of them (including all of the staff that helped to make it happen).
Next week is a very busy week for everyone, we will be practising for the Key Stage 2 Christmas Carol service and we have our Christma lunch on Wednesday. We will alos be completing work for our topic books and finishing off our Science work by looking at skeletons and muscles.
I know how busy this time of year gets for everyone, however it is still very important that the children continue to complete their homework, practise their spellings and times tables, and read every day!
