We may have only had a four day week but we managed to cram in lots of learning this week.

In Literacy, we have been continuing to look at writing information text ensuring that we have used heading, sub-headings, paragraphs, technical language while at the same time extending our sentences with conjunctions and experimenting with a wide variety of sentence openers. The children have made huge progress with the quality of the writing they are producing and have listened carefully to all the advice they have been given and used it to improve their work.

In Maths, we have been continuing to work on addition and subtraction. Focussing on estimating the answers has helped us have a clearer idea of answer we should expect to see. Following this we have been using inverse operations to check that we have calculated the solution correctly.

Last but not least we had a fantastic day in Chester. The children were all beautifully behaved and a real credit to themselves and the school. They demonstrated lots of knowledge that they had already gained as well as asking questions and exploring answers to extend this learning further. Exploring the Dewa Experience exposed us to some really interesting facts — the children found the food and medicine section especially interesting! After lunch we went on patrol with our own Roman soldier. Learning how to march and form a Testudo was lots of fun.

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...

Continuing to explore our Space theme, the children drew around themselves creating an astronaut and set about decorating it. We have turned our handprints into aliens and wrote our names in glitter. The children finished off their mobile of the planets (we may have discovered a few more than in real life!) and hung this in the classroom. It looks super! Last week we made astronaut packed...
