What a great week in Base 4! Along with the rest of KS2, we achieved 100% attendance which is a great result. We've all been in school and eager to learn.

Our work on The Explorer has taken us on a voyage down the river Amazon. We've been identifying the features that the author uses within her text to help us learn how to write in a similar style. We've looked at the way Katherine Rundell uses powerful verbs to describe the movement of the raft and drew our own storyboards of the 4 explorers' journey. We've also been learning how to punctuate speech correctly in our writing and understanding reporting clauses.

In Maths, we've been working further on our multiplication and division. Year 4 have been learning how to find key information in word problems and figure out which operations they need to use, as well as using resources to solve division problems with remainders. Year 5's have been learning about common factors, prime and square numbers.

We've continued our science work looking at the planets of the solar system and their features. We created our own information card about the planets ready to play top trumps with. We also learnt how the planets move around the Sun and created our own physical solar system! I've been really impressed with some of the questioning Base 4 have had about this topic; we definitely have some budding scientists in our midst.

Have a fabulous weekend!
