Base 4 were well and truly put through their paces last week. We've been exploring data and statistics in our Maths work by measuring and recording our heart rates. After finding our resting heart rates, we all took part in Base 4 Boot Camp as the children (and even Mr. Lindop) did sit-ups, hurdling, wall sits, step ups and burpees to get our blood pumping! We saw how our heart rates rose during and then fell after exercise and will be using this to learn how to present and interpret data in tables and graphs.

To continue the theme, in English we have been reading about Tommo's experiences in the trenches from Private Peaceful. We explored how the conditions must have been for Tommo and his comrades getting to the trenches, dealing with the mud, rain, lice, rats and the sounds of war going on around them. We used drama and freeze frames to show how the characters would have moved through the trenches and what they were feeling. I was really impressed by how Base 4 used drama to understand more about the text they had read.

We also had a very festive week! As well as rehearsing for the carol service and using our MFL lessons with Madame Sharpe to learn songs in French and German, we were very excited to meet Santa and some of his reindeer on Friday.

In Design and Technology, we used our Christmas designs which we found in our homework to plan, design and create festive candle holders for the Christmas fair. The children worked really hard and created some beautiful designs, which sold really well at the fair and helped raise money for the school.

Well done, Base 4!

The balloons were great to use for our squiggle while you wiggle...

Another lovely week in our key worker bubbles in school this week!In Base A, our year threes have been taking our writing about portraits last week one step further in art by creating our own self portraits. We used charcoal and rubbers to look at light and shade from black and white photographs of ourselves. The children learnt that it took a lot of observation and perseverance, but they did...
