Woolly mammoths, cave art and extremely long history timelines- that is how we can sum up our week in Base 3!
It has been great to see all your happy faces return to school — we missed you.
This week we have delved into our new topic 'Wild Isles' with a class focus on the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We started reading 'Stig of the Dump' and enjoyed the 'dump' that we now have in our classroom. I think that this is a book that we will really enjoy. We have also looked at a timeline of history to learn quite how long ago this time period was. It was so long ago that the timeline couldn't fit in the hall! This helped us to realise how much time the period covered and quite how long ago it was. We also learnt about Stone Age cave paintings, we think these are just incredible. In art we then used sticks, charcoal, graphite and paint to re-create our own art in the style of cave paintings which we then put into our classroom 'dump'. We then took this to a smaller level and used the charcoal and chalk to make smaller drawings in our sketch books.
In English we have been inspired by the book 'How to wash a woolly mammoth' and have been learning about these amazing creatures. We even tried to re-create one in the hall but it was just too big! . We have read a range of texts about these animals and have started planning a text of our own- I can't wait to see our finished work.
In maths we have been focusing on arrays, multiplication and arithmetic — we have made great progress with this already, well done Base 3.
This is just a snippet of our learning this week — I hope that you have enjoyed it.
Have a lovely weekend Base 3, I look forward to seeing you on Monday.

We looked at some weird and wonderful seeds and...
