Well done Base 3! What a fantastic start to the school year!

The children have made a super start to the year, they have all come back ready to learn and have hit the ground running. It has been lovely to see how the children have blended so easily together into their new class, friendships and being formed and they are really taking care of each other.

In Maths, we have started looking at Place Value. The children have worked hard to find 10, 100 and 1000 more or less than a number as well as being able to read and write numbers. Most impressive was their effort when counting in multiples; year 3 have been counting in 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s, 50s and 100s while year 4 have been tackling counting in 6s, 7s, 9s, 25s and 1000s. This hard work is already showing dividends for some children in their times tables tests.

In Literacy, we have started reading our class text 'Escape from Rome' the children are really enjoying it and have been getting to grips with the main characters Juba, Fronto and Ursula. They have been 'hot seating' the character to help them understand their thoughts and feelings which has helped them to write more thorough character descriptions. I have been really impressed with how carefully the children have listened to and acted on advice as to how to improve their work.

Introducing the Roman topic to them have been a delight, watching their faces as they examined artefacts and tried to work out what they were and how the Romans used them. They have been able to confidently explain what they thought and their reasons behind those thoughts. We had some very different opinions!

The class also had the first of their 10 brass tuition sessions. We're looking forwrad to hearing the progress they make each week.

Photos from last week's learning will be posted during the week.

Finally, please may I thank you for all ensuring that your PE kits have been in school and for sending your children with a water bottle to enable the children to stay well hydrated during the school day.
I very much look forward to what the future weeks hold and watching your children grow.
Mrs Heaton
