What a super week and a half we have had in Base 3 so far! It has been lovely seeing all of you in Base 3 again after the summer holidays. You have all come back well-rested and ready to learn.

We have started to discover our new Learning Journey for this term through art. We have learnt about the Japanese artist, Hokusai and had a go at recreating some of the artwork he produced many years ago. We have made a large version of his painting, The Great Wave. We have also observed pictures of a Cherry Blossom tree which is a Japanese tree. We then used watercolours and a cotton bud brush to paint our own Cherry Blossom Trees. These all look fabulous in our classroom!

We have turned our maths brains back on and have started working on understanding place value of numbers with 2 and 3 digits. We had a great time in the hall creating numbers using digits. Next week we will continue to work on place value.

In Literacy, we have started to explore our text, Kensuke's Kingdom. We made some excellent predictions about what the story might be about and very much enjoyed reading and discussing chapter 1 of the book. Next week we will explore the book further and be doing some non-fiction writing.

Keep reading as often as you can, many children are already climbing the reading ladder. Keep practising your times tables and spellings so that we keep improving. Don't forget your trumpet and trombone practise; our next lesson is on Thursday morning so it must be in school.

An incredible maths week in Base 4. I've been blown away with how engaged everyone has been and showing how much we all value the work we are producing. Great work Base 4.We've been investigating the number 1914 all week, as this was the year that Ernest Shackleton set sail on the Endurance. We came up with as many facts as we could about the number, partitioning into thousands...
