S Heaton: January 2018
What a busy couple of weeks it has been.
After a lovely Christmas break the children were straight back working hard on 8th January. For the first week we focused our learning on Treasure Island to ensure that the children thoroughly understood the storyline before our visit to the theatre on 9th January. We looked at 'treasure' and what special things constitute our treasures and why. We compared the play version of the story with the book version as well as writing a review of the play itself. We have some budding TV reporters in our midst when they decided to film their reviews.
In Maths we have begun working on Fractions — I have been very impressed with how the children are approaching this subject and traditionally it is one which breeds fear amongst children and parents. The children have endeavoured to take it all in their stride and I have been nothing but impressed with their knowledge and positive work ethic. We have been able to move quickly onto new areas of learning as each and every child has worked tirelessly to retain the information and skills they learnt the previous day.
Our Science topic this term is States of Matter and we have been having lots of fun finding out about solids, liquids and gases. We have been exploring how if feels to be each state and looking at how they interact with each other and how they behave when they are heated and cooled.
Well done to the hardy members of Base 3 who have remained well and refused to succumb to the bugs — we wish our missing members a speedy recovery and hope to see you back in school on Monday. I very much look forward to continuing our learning journey over the coming weeks.
Swimming has now begun and two lessons in the children are already starting to show huge improvements in their confidence and progress — I am really excited to see how far they progress over the term,
The children's behaviour has been exemplary and they have welcomed our visitor into school last week in a friendly and confident manner.

What a wonderful visit we had this morning! As part of our farming topic, we were visited by two tractors; one old and one new. The children were wowed by them and asked some wonderful questions. They wanted to know how and why the tractors had changed over time, what they were made of and how much weight they could pull. Thank you to the lovely farmers who took time out of their very busy day to...
