As always we have had a busy week in Base 3, with each child showing an excellent attitude towards their learning whilst also enjoying it.

In Literacy we have learnt a wide range of new vocabulary and concepts from just a 3 minute video all about volcanoes. We started the week by matching some technical vocabulary to their definitions, there was a lot of discussion about what the different words could be. We learnt a lot of definitions including magma, lava, flank, crater, parasitic cones and even Mrs Cador learnt the difference between magma and lava. We followed this by watching a video and taking notes about how volcanoes are formed, the structure of a volcano, volcanic eruptions and the impact of volcanic eruptions. We used bullet points, always remembering to use capital letters too! We also identified the features of information texts, ready to start writing our own information texts all about volcanoesw

In Maths, we have put our brains to the test with multiplication and division. We have been looking at ways of representing multiplication and found it can be shown as a repeated addition and in an array. Some of us worked on finding relationships between different times tables. Next week we are continuing with learning times tables and we will then be applying these to missing digit questions and problems.

We finished off our writing about how to make our volcanoes, we then got to back our writing with nice paper ready to be put into our topic books. We focused on neat presentation and cutting carefully.

As it was our harvest service ths week, we spent a bit of time discussing harvest and creating our letters which link to what harvest is all about. It was a lovely service and the children all did extremely well with the readings and singing!

Mrs Griffin has been working with children throughout the week to generate adjectives and descriptive phrases to be placed around a fantastic art work displayed outside of our classroom.

Reminders:
Times tables MUST be learnt every week! Spellings MUST also be learnt and homework completed on time please.

What a busy week we had last week! We started off the week by watching an explorer enter an ancient pyramid. We used role play and conscious alley to think abut the characters's thoughts and feelings when entering the pyramid. As a class, we did a lot of vocabulary work to try and expand and develop the vocabulary we use in our writing. We will be using all of this work to produce a piece...

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...

We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
