R Charlesworth: June 2018
Well, Base 4 — 'We all matter' has really shone through this week. A while ago, we decided to make a stand about plastics; we had our opinion and felt it really mattered. As part of this, we wrote to our local MP to ask for support for our cause. The children wrote very mature letters, which have proved to make a difference; we received replies from the House of Commons this week! Our letters have been passed on to the Environment Secretary for him to consider. We may be little but we are fierce! Well done Base 4, you should be extremely proud of yourselves, I am VERY proud of what you have achieved.
In our maths this week we have taken our learning outdoors to get to grips with measures and converting these. We did find estimating weight rather tricky but after a bit of fun with scales, everyone has made great progress with this — well done Base 4.
Again, you have absolutely blown my socks off with your writing — you are really working so hard and are so focused. We are writing the beginning of 'The Secret Garden', the children have been fantastic at selecting their vocabulary to control how the reader thinks and reacts. Their writing really has been outstanding.
This week we have also carried out our pulse rate experiment — the children were rather exhausted after this! But, as always, we had great fun! On top of this, somehow we managed to have and also enjoy art sessions, RE, PE , swimming and French! What a week!
