Well done Base 4 on another busy week!

This week we have been looking at Instruction Writing to fit around our D&T project of designing and building tepees. We have looked at plenty of recipes and other practical examples of instructions (including how to make a cup of tea) so expect plenty of home baking and brews in bed this weekend mums and dads!! As the week progressed, we developed our writing skills to include fronted adverbials and time connectives to add more detail to our instructions. We then applied all of these skills to our own set of instructions as we began to plan our own instructions for how to make our tepees.

In Maths we have been looking at developing our Reasoning and Problem Solving skills in multiplication. We last studied multiplication in detail in early January and it is fantastic to see the progress that everyone has made in the proceeding term. Not only is everyone more confident to use these skills, we are now able to apply them to more complex calculations and problems. Well done everyone!

In topic we have been finishing the design process for our tepees and beginning to build them. Massive thank you to Mr Eaton for helping us to cut our sticks down to size to make it easier for us to build with them. We have had a great time this week using the glue guns/ watching Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward struggle with them, painting our outer covers and seeing our designs come to life and finally bringing all the elements of our build together and adding the finishing touches to them! I am sure you will agree when we bring them home how hard we have worked and how great they look.

Well done this week. All your hard work is paying off.

Have a good weekend.

Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward.
