Miss McKinnon: November 2018
What a fantastic and jam packed first half term Base 3 have had!
In Literacy, the children have taken their learning of the life of an evacuee during The Blitz, just like Lenny in our book, to create their own Newspaper articles. Using our very own Anderson shelter, that Mrs Wimpenny created in our classroom, the children recreated a scene from a night during The Blitz which they later reported on. They even became reporters themselves and took eye-witness statements to include in their articles. Throughout this unit, the children have focused on using inverted commas for speech, fronted adverbials and both co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions.
In Maths, the children have focused on addition and subtraction. We began by thinking about which strategies we could use to add and subtract three digit numbers mentally. We then began to focus on using column addition and subtraction and all the children were able to apply this method to solve word problems using the steps they had learnt! Towards the end of the half term we began to look at multiplication and will be continuing with this at the start of the upcoming half term.
Base 3 really enjoyed preparing for the Harvest and were all absolutely fantastic whilst performing in the service. It was so lovely to see so many of you in the church to celebrate Harvest with us.
The children have really taken to learning their Brass instruments and can't wait to perform in their concert to show you all what they have been learning. Keep practicing Base 3!
I hope you have all had a very relaxing and enjoyable half term break. I'm looking forward to another busy, hard-working half term in the lead up to Christmas!

Continuing to explore our Space theme, the children drew around themselves creating an astronaut and set about decorating it. We have turned our handprints into aliens and wrote our names in glitter. 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...

Sarah has topped her personal target and has now raised £1,500. WOW! Sarah — it's an incredible amount and we all thank you for your personal...
