Well, what a fantastic start Base 4 have had to the new term. Refreshed after the Christmas break, Base 4 have simply been flying! We have really got stuck in to our new book 'Mortal Engines'- we are gripped already.

In our first few weeks we have designed and built engines, including a real life 'GUT' (engine room) in our classroom. The children have created; fan-belts, rocket launchers and buttons attached to springs to enhance their engines and these creations really are fantastic. Thank you to those children who brought in extras to add to our engines- it has really added to 'the look' of The Gut!

We have been very busy with our sports; we have experienced a Taekwondo lesson, played cricket and, for some, even had our first netball club! All this as well as our P.E sessions.

In English we have been learning about the blue whale and other amazing but endangered animals. The children have written some excellent pieces- Base 4, you should be very proud of yourselves. To help us understand how huge the blue whale actually is, we measured it out on the school field. Wow — we couldn't quite believe what we were seeing!

We have also been very lucky to have some children visit Red Shift Radio; they learnt about all the gadgets in the studio and did some excellent live on-air presenting. Well done- we were very proud of you listening along at school. We hope to pay more visits to this radio station soon.

In maths we have been exploring the world of fractions- and what a big world this is! Equivalent, improper fractions, mixed numbers, adding/ subtracting, decimal representation... the list goes on! Well done with cracking this, you are doing a great job.

As well as all this, we have created amazing pieces of art through code, learned how music can represent characters, discovered more about the United Kingdom and the counties in England and completed a fantastic topic book page. Phew... busy bees!

We explored different mechanisms and materials that could be used. We...
