Miss Phillips: September 2016
Another fantastic week in Base 3. Everyone has continued to work as hard as they can and getting involved with all aspects of their learning.
In Literacy this week we have been working on descriptive writing, focusing on using different adjectives. We have described animals from the Indonesian Rainforest, coming up with some excellent words and phrases to use. Next week we are continuing with descriptive writing, but we will be developing our sentence building skills, ensuring they make sense, avoiding repetition, using a range of sentence openers and enhancing our vocabulary. We have now got mental Maths books and we will be making a start on these during the afternoons.
In Maths, we have started to look at number and place value. We have worked hard to read and write numbers, using figures and words. Along with this we have worked out values of digits within numbers. Next week we will continue working with number and place value, starting with ordering and comparing numbers.
We have produced some lovely art work in the style of Oenone Hammersly, using bold colours and simple shapes to create drawings of Indonesian animals. We used colouring pencils and oil pastels to add colour to our art. These are almost ready to be put up in our Rainforest. Next week, in art we will be drawing some silohouettes of animals to go on display outside of our classroom. We will also be creating some large art work following he style of Oenone Hammersly.
In PE this week we worked on our throwing and catching skills, making sure we were throwing with control and accuracy. We put our skills into practise in a game of matball. Next week we are going to be putting throwing and catch to one side, and practise some athletics activities in preparation for an upcoming event. This will include sprinting, long distant running, throwing and jumping.
Next week, I will be setting homework, starting with a mymaths activity set on Monday due for Friday morning. I expect every child to complete their homework on time. If your child does not have access to the internet they need to make sure they complete homework during break times. Spellings and a Literacy based homwork will also be set during the week.
Reading must be done daily and recorded in the reading record. I do ensure to check reading records as often as possible.
Well done Base 3 for another great week. Keep up the hard work!
