Mr Lindop: February 2019
What a week in Base 4! It's been so busy we haven't even had time to stop for photographs.
We've started writing our own stories in English this week. We set our own success measures and agreed that our writing should include dialogue which moves the story along, correct punctuation and reveals our characters' thoughts and feelings. I was really impressed with some of the writing. Harry really showed his understanding of one of our characters through what she said about Fred's raft:
"No, I'm not getting on that dirty thing," shouted Con.
In Maths, we have been continuing our work on fractions, moving on to counting and ordering fractions with different denominators. One group really persevered with a challenge putting fractions in size order into a grid. I was really impressed with Nathan and Issy's perseverance; they figured it out in the end after a lot of perseverence and determination to succeed.
We have also made headway on our Learning Journey books. Base 4 have been creating more work in RE around the River Jordan, labeling maps and using watercolours to paint them. We've also been continuing our map work in Geography: looking at the places in our local village; using Ordnance Survey maps and using the key to help us find out what different places are.
Finally, Base 4 have been continuing our swimming lessons on a Wednesday and again we have received positive comments from the staff at the pool on how polite, hard-working and sensible our children are. Yet again, I'm really pleased that Base 4 are representing the school so well in our community.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
