Miss Phillips: March 2017
A warm welcome back following the half term break. I hope you all had an enjoyable week and are well rested. Base 3 have come back well-rested and ready to learn.
We have had a very busy first 4 days to this half term. In Maths we have been working on shape. We started the week by looking at different types of 2D and 3D shapes followed by drawing and describing these shapes. Then we found out that angles are found within shapes and they represent a turn. We all looked at different types of angles and some of us named these angles. Next week, we will finish off our work on angles and shapes, and then move onto fractions.
In Literacy this week, we pulled together all of our learning from the Storm Whale in Winter to write our own story. We all planned our stories thinking about our characters and the problem. After planning, we started to write an opening and the build-up, making sure we had description, different sentence openers, different vocabulary and that it was exciting. Next week we will finish off writing our stories and then we will move onto a new book!
On Tuesday afternoon, we learnt a new skill, printing. We made prints of the types of transport that different explorers made their voyages on. We first had to stencil the shape onto a polystyrene block using a very sharp pencil. We then had to roll paint onto the polystyrene, making sure there was enough paint on the block. We then placed the paper on top to print the design on. The finished ones looked fantastic and everyone took their time to produce their prints carefully. Next week we will be writing about how we made our prints and presenting our work in our topic books.
Next week, we will be doing some Geography to map out Michael's journey on the Peggy Sue and we have swimming on Wednesday afternoon.
Remember that your PE kits need to be in school all week!! Homework has been set at the end of last week, Maths and Literacy homework is due on Monday 13th March. Please also keep practising spellings, times tables and reading.
