B Cador: June 2016
Welcome back Base 3. I hope you had a lovely break.
I was wowed by some of the homework, where the children had to research 'Robots', paying particular attention to how they could present their work creatively. Max, Olivia and Nicole have all been inspired by the work we are doing and have all done a fantastic job at creating additional models to compliment our Iron Man and are on display in the classroom. Keep up the great work!
It was lovely being able to welcome you to school to share the Queen's 90 Birthday Lunch. I hope you enjoyed the celebration.
Since returning to school, we have started to read Ted Hughes' novel The Iron Woman. As part of our Learning Journey work, we have been comparing the descriptions of the Iron Man and the Iron Woman.
In literacy, we have been focusing on non-chronological reports and identifying the key features of these kinds of texts, including the structure of a report and its language features.
In Numeracy, we have been working on finding fractional amounts and will be moving onto word problems.
In art, we have been completing our pastel sunsets.
We are looking forward to a busy half term of learning, sport and performance and continuing our Learning Journey based on The Iron Man. Please ensure your child continues to learn their times tables and spellings and reads regularly.
The weather is forecast to be mixed this week. Please ensure your child brings suitable accessories for each day's weather forecast: water bottle, sun hat, sun-cream (applied at home) if hot and sunny; a rain coat if a wet day is forecast.
