We've had a fantastic week back in Base 4 this week, with all the children eager to learn. There's been a really positive buzz in the classroom this week and I've been very impressed with how every child has been on task and putting a huge amount of effort into their work.

In maths this week, we have been learning different methods to divide 2, 3 and 4-digit numbers by one digit. Our year 5's have been learning the formal written method and have been interpreting remainders in word problems. This can always be a tricky topic to cover, but I've been impressed how all the children have stuck at it, been honest about where they are struggling and are "giving it a go!"

We began work on our class text, The Explorer. We've been making predictions on what the story could be about and defining unfamiliar words and phrases by using the rest of the text for context. We've also been reading the whole story at the end of the day, which the children are already really interested in.

Our science this half term is on Earth and space. Izzy found a letter from a member of the Flat Earth Society on her chair, trying to convince Base 4 that the Earth wasn't spherical. We went outside to look for evidence and then used our research skills to find evidence to prove the shape of the Earth. This generated some fantastic questioning and reasoning which was very impressive.

We also started work on our learning journey on canals. We compiled all the information that Base 4 knew already about the canal and all the learning questions they wanted to find out over the course of the term.

We welcomed Issy into Base 4 as well this week and the children have made her feel very welcome. A big thanks to Belle for being such a good buddy and helping Is to settle in.

Finally, a brilliant effort from Base 4 on attendance this week. 99.2% attendance is a huge achievement and the competition was fierce this week. Well done to all the children for coming in promptly and keen to start their learning.

Today, we learnt about what happened at the start of the Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain. What better way to show how Britain was open to invasion after the Romans departed than two adapted games of "Capture the Flag."Well done to our brave Britons who tried all they could to defend the country! They were exhausted by the...

Another great news assembly led by our Base 5 news team.
