A wonderful week in Base 3 this week with EVERYONE trying their best and having a go independently. Well done Base 3!!

In Literacy this week we have focused on describing a character. We have been describing Michael from our class text Kensuke's kingdom. We did not only focus on what he looks like, but also his personality, his family and friends, and school. To do this we looked at using a range of different adjectives to have an impact on the reader and using prepositions to ensure we are using specific detail. By Friday, after practising expanded noun phrases and adjectival phrases with prepositions, and planning, we were ready to write our description independently. The writing was well-structured and made sense with specific detail added with prepositions. Myself and Mrs Heaton were very impressed with the outcome of this writing. Next week, we are going to be using another text alongside Kensuke's Kingdom which will lead our Literacy over the next few weeks.

In Maths this week we continued to apply our knowkedge of number and place value to reasoning problems. This encouraged us to consider how the problem needed to be solved and which skills we needed to use. We then moved onto counting in multiples of different numbers, some of us used the numicon to help us. Towards the end of the week we were able to count in multiples verbally with a greater pace. We were then able to apply this to sequences with missing numbers. Next week, we will continue with counting in multiples, but we will be applying them to a range of different questions which will develop our reasoning and problem solving skills.

On Monday afternoon, Base 3 finsihed off their fish art with Mrs Francis, our display looks fantastic and the 3D fish are very realistic in colour and shape.

Base 3's swimmig lessons are going extremely well; all of the staff that take the children swimming are very complementary about the children's behaviour and attitude at the swimming pool. Don't forget your swimming kit for Wednesday.

Thursday morning was an extra special treat for all of Key Stage 2; we went to the New Vic Theatre in Newcastle to see a production of the Snow Queen. We all enjoyed it very much and the production was fantastic. The children's behaviour was again exemplary, a credit to the school.

Apologies for no homework being set last week, homework will be sent home as of Monday as usual, children are allowed to complete their homework at school if they require additional support or the use of the internet. We do also have a homework club running on a Wednesday lunch time..

Please also remember that PE kits need to be in school every day!!!
