SS: April 2017
Phewww! What a busy week we have had in Base 4! This week we have been immersing ourselves into our topic of Native America. After reading more of our story and delving into Little Bull's past we have been studying the Iroquois tribe and researching lots of different facts about them. We then used these facts to help us write our own Non-Chronological Reports that we have proudly displayed on our new display in our classroom. Feel free to pop in and have a read!
In Maths we have been using and applying our problem solving skills to help us solve challenging maths problems — and this is before 9am!! Thanks to our fantastic problem solving skills we have worked brilliantly in Maths and cracked our objectives for this week — negative numbers and rounding. These are objectives that we haven't studied since before October half term (it feels like only yesterday!) but after dusting the cobwebs off we were able to use and apply learnt knowledge fantastically.
In topic this week we have been carrying on with our study of Native America and looking at the different regions in America and which tribes lived in which region. We have begun to create our final display board by designing and painting a big map of North America (Massive thanks to Mrs Winward!) and splitting it into the different regions.
What a busy week! We have absolutely earned the bank holiday weekend! Enjoy the sunshine (we can hope!).
Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward
