What a lovely week back we have had!

In Literacy, we have begun looking at narrative. We began the week by examining Lila, the main character in our story, and writing a character description about her. From this we moved on to creating our own characters. As a lot of authors base their characters on people that they know, some of us decided to do the same. Having formed a clear idea of our character we began a story board to help us think through our story. We have decided to write adventure stories based our story of the Firework Maker's Daughter. Today we have written our opening where we have introduced the characters and the setting — I'm looking forward to reading them over the weekend.
In Maths we have begun looking at measurement, comparing mm with cm, cm with m and m with km. The children are really starting to see how all the other Maths they have been studying links in to these areas too — we've talked about fractions, decimals and multiplying and dividing by multiples of 10 and its all been linked to measurement.
We've completed our challenge to find the Ice Cube Melting Champion this week and they will be revealed next week. The children came up with lots of different ways to try and melt their ice cube quicker than anyone else.
World Book Day was delightful with all the children coming dressed up as such an array of different characters — their love of reading is really shining through. One child said he'd read so many books it was impossible to choose a favourite character to come dressed as.
We look forward to continuing to work really hard for the rest of this short half term — it'll fly by!

Yet another great week in Base 5 with smiling faces and plenty of hard work. We have worked extremely hard with our arithmetic, finding the best method to use and practising our skills.

Alongside this, we have also written a non chronological report about...
