We have been embracing our practical side this week in Base 3.

In Literacy, we have been looking at poetry. We took our inspiration from the poem 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright. To begin with we read the poem and practised reading it aloud and performing it to our classmates. Next we focussed on what memories from our Roman topic we would put in our own magic boxes. The children worked so hard on choosing amazing vocabulary and building fantastic images with words; I was truly blown away by the quality of their writing this week.

In Maths, we have been continuing our work on multiplication and division. The children have been using various method to develop their understanding looking carefully for the related number facts to help them solve more tricky problems. We are also continuing to see huge improvements in our times tables tests — thank you for all your support of the children with this.

Each afternoon this week we have been turning our creative heads on. We began the week by measuring and sawing our wood for the catapults we are building. This took a lot of concentration and teamwork. The children were remarkably skilled with a saw. Having sawn all our pieces, later in the week we glued our frame together adding triangles to the corner for extra strength and reinforcement. We have also been designing and painted Roman shields for the front covers of our Learning Journey books.

The children have worked so hard this week and as a result have produced fantastic work which in turn has given them a boost of confidence.

Base 1 have had a fun week. We used some plastic syringes to test how high we could squirt water into the air. We had to figure out how to suck up the water from the water trays. Next measured how far the water went across the playground. A water fight developed as it was a very hot day. We have been learning about British birds. We made binoculars and went bird watching. After that we made some...
