Miss Phillips: October 2019
We have had another great week in Base 3.
We have been exploring Kensuke's Kingdom further and we have been analysing and rewriting Michael's Ships' Log. We have come across a lot of new places around the world and explored some new vocabulary.
In Maths, we have been working on addition and subtraction of ones, tens and hundreds using a mental strategy and dienes. We have also been playing some games to help us learn and remember our times tables facts. Next week we are going to continue working on addition and subtraction with some problem solving and reasoning.
Liv has been very busy at home and has used a kit to create a volcano that she very kindly brought into school for us to recreate a volcanic eruption using bicarbonate of soda, red food colouring and vinegar.
On Monday afternoon, we had a visitor, who is one of the children's aunties, to come and talk to us about exploring the world and showed us amazing pictures from when she visited Japan. She also brought a Japanese Kimono and chopsticks to show us. Thank you from all of Base 3 for sharing your travels with us.
Next week is yet another busy week at school. We are starting the week with our Harvest Service at church at 2.15pm, we hope to see you all there. Next week is also STEM week, so we will have a Science focus throughout our learning.
