L Phillips: September 2016
Base 3 have been working very hard again this week on a wide range of activities.
In Literacy we explored the outdoors to help develop our imaginations. We followed in Will's footsteps from 'Running Wild' and went on an journey on an Elephant through the jungle. We generated a collection of adjectives and phrases that coud be used in our writing; to do this we focused on using our 5 senses. This was followed up with a descriptive piece of writing, ensuring that we were describe all that we could hear, smell, see, feel and taste. Next week we will be conitnuing with the piece of writing and then applying our descriptive writing skills to story writing.
Our Maths lessons have continued looking at number and place value. This week we have looked at ordering numbers on number lines. We have progressed from numbers 1 — 20 up to numbers with 4 digits. Along side this we have been focusing on learning our times tables using the numcon to support us. Next week we will be comparing numbers, understanding the lace value within numbers and applying this to addition and subtraction.
In PE we have been putting in a lot of effort to improve our stamina whilst running, our throwing skills and our standing long jump technique. I was very impressed by how hard everyone tried during both of our PE lessons, but also the enthusiasm to want to do better.
On Wednesday afternoon, some of year 4 got to take part in Bikeability, where they have learnt how to remain safe on a bike and the rules needed for riding on a road. Each child that took part in Year 4 passed their level 1, ready for level 2 next year; well done!
In Science we again went outside to discover the plants around our playground. We took our sketch books and had a go at sketching these plants in detail, making sure we look closely at the plants. There were some excellent, detailed sketches. We then identified the four main parts of a plant and discussed the function of each part.
Next week we will continue looking at plants in science, we will also start to discover volcanoes with the aim of creating our own volcanoes.
MyMaths homework is set on a Monday due for Friday, Children are allowed to complete this within chool but it is their responsibility to remember to do it.
Times tables must be learnt, they underpin many Maths concepts.
Spelling must also be learnt daily in order for children to apply the patterns to their writing.
