SS: March 2017
Well done Base 4 on all your hard work this term! I can't believe that it is Easter already! You have all worked so hard and achieved lots and lots! This week we have worked tirelessly to finish off our Independent recount writing and after reading them I am delighted to say that it is great to see so many of you using and applying the learnt writing strategies that we have been studying these past few weeks. Your writing is full of: time connectives, compound and complex sentences, expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials to include a few.
In maths we have been linking it to or topic and studying world maps to find longitude and latitude co-ordinates of certain countries. We created a lovely page in our topic books to highlight the difference between longitude and latitude.
Continuing with our topic books we have been working extremely hard to make sure that we have presented all of our amazing topic work to our normal high standard. We have learnt all about different famous explorers and the famous journeys that they made around the world — and some even beyond!
Amongst all of this hard work we have been practising very hard for the Easter concert that was at the church on Thursday. It was a great occasion and lovely to see so many parents and friends of the school there supporting the children. A big thank you to Mrs Winward for preparing the order of service booklets and to Mrs Winward and Mrs Clarke for setting up the church for the concert.
Easter Research Project — Due 21st April:
Your homework project is to research a famous journey and present it as an information poster (non-chronological report). We have looked at 4 famous explorers in our topic work so you can use their journey if you wish (I have listed them below) or you can choose a different explorer and journey. However, it must be a famous journey that was revolutionary for the time (don't tell me about your journey to Tesco!).
Your research poster must include:
â€¢ Name of explorer and their journey
â€¢ When they went of their journey
â€¢ A short biography on the explorer
â€¢ Where the journey was from and to
â€¢ Pictures of the explorers (these can be hand drawn or stuck on)
All writing must be done in pen/ pencil — No sticking in from the computer! Make them colourful we will display them around the classroom after Easter. Think outside the box. A prize will be awarded for the most creative one!
Have a lovely Easter Break and enjoy the rest! You have definitely earned it!
Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward
