SS: April 2017
Welcome back Base 4. We hope you all had a lovely and relaxed break and are well rested ready for the final busy term ahead. This term we are focusing on the topic of Native America through the book 'The Indian in the Cupboard' by Lynne Reid Banks. We have already started to read the novel and we are already gripped by the little Indian that has come to life!
This week we have immersed ourselves in our new topic by predicting the events of the story; mind-mapping how Omri may have been feeling when he woke up to find his toy had come alive and writing about what the world would be like if we were the size of a tiny plastic figurine suddenly surrounded by massive bedroom furniture.
In Maths we have been surrounded by angles this week (not angels!) and we are now able to spot all the different types of angles, name them and identify how many degrees are in each type of angle! Quiz us on them when we get home! We have also been using protractors to measure angles and it was great to see the light bulbs going off around the room as you all got to grips with it (it is rather tricky!).
On Friday we had an artist come in to help some lucky children create a willow sculpture of a Wren. This will hopefully be displayed proudly for you all to see. Keep your eyes peeled for this — pictures to follow!
Thank you to everyone who completed their projects over the holidays you have all worked so hard on these and they will now be displayed around the classroom for everyone to see. They look fantastic and you have obviously had fun and learnt lots creating them!
Have a lovely weekend Base 4 — fingers crossed the sun shines, it is the start of the cricket season after all!!
Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward

Base 3 have worked ever so hard this week. We began our week by celebrating the harvest at church and the children did a lovely job with their singing and reading. On Tuesday we took part in our STEM week with the whole school. We were challenged to create a system that would help to move tomatoes down the mountain in Nepal. We explored different mechanisms and materials that could be used. We...
