Miss Phillips: November 2017
We have had a lovely week in Base 2 with everyone working very hard!
In Maths, we have finished off our work on subtraction. We have been subtracting tens, using number bonds to subtract a 1-digit number and then using our knowledge of number bonds and subtracting tens to subtract 2 digit numbers. We also had a go at solving a range of problems with some of us being challenged with 2 step problems. Next week we will be moving onto multiplication and division.
In Literacy, we have generated some excellent stories with a lot of description and excitement. We used a page from our book 'Home' by Carson Ellis to plan a story from. We started by thinking about what might be happening in the picture and developed our ideas as a class. We then planned our own stories and had a go at writing them making sure we used a variety of vocabulary, conjunctions, commas for lists and different sentence openers. Next week we will be writing about our trip to Blists Hill.
This week we have made a start on our Nativity songs which are coming together very nicely. The children have worked hard to learn the words and are sounding lovely. I am very much looking forward to the final performance now!!
On Tuesday afternoon we had a visitor from the RNLI to teach the children about how to stay safe near water, the work that the RNLI do to help people and the history of the RNLI. The children experienced being dressed in the clothes that RNLI volunteers wear today and what they used to wear.
During Mrs Clarke's RE lesson this week, some of the children stepped into Mary and Joseph's shoes whilst learning about the Christmas story to ask and answer questions about their journey to Bethlehem.
On Friday Base 2 was taken over by some fabulous super heroes!!! It was lovely to see everyone dressed as their super hero on Friday to raise money for Children in Need. Thank you to all of those who donated money to such a good cause.
Next week, we have our trip to Blists Hill to look forward to on Tuesday. We will have a very fun day learning about how the Victorians used to live and everyone will experience life as a Victorian child in school. Please remember packed lunch, a warm coat, hats, gloves, scarf, school uniform and sensible school shoes please.
