Miss Phillips: October 2019
We have had another great week in Base 3, the children are working very hard and pushing themselves to learn more. It has been so lovely to have so many children asking questions to extend their learning and finding ways to improve their learning.
We have explored number and place value further this week with comparing numbers. We have created our own number lines and used this understanding to solve some tricky reasoning and problem solving questions.
We have got a whole class of super writers!! I was extremely impressed with how well the children approached rewriting the story of the Little Raindrop. They added in their own ideas, different and new vocabulary and some great sentence starters. The children even got to use blue pens to edit their writing independently this week! Well done to everyone in Base 3 for super writing.
Our Geography lessons this week have taken us inside volcanoes to discover the parts of a volcano and how they work. The children have produced a fantastic cross sectional diagram of a volcano and added the labels to show the parts. These all look fantastic.
Don't forget to practise spellings and times tables, read as often as you can and complete your homework for Friday.

What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...
Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
