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.

Base 3 and 5 were lucky enough to have a special virtual visitor in class this afternoon. Lucy from Chester Zoo spoke to the classes about the different animals that live in the rainforests and how deforestation is affecting them. We all found it really interesting especially the parts about the snakes, orang-utans and jaguars! The children asked some fantastic questions about conservation and...
