What an incredible reading week we've had in Base 4 !

As strange as it seemed to be reading in the middle of Maths, the children loved the opportunity to take time each day to read independently when the reading bell rang. This was made even better by visiting our "reading café" on Wednesday, where Mr. Hodgkinson and Mr. Lindop waited on while we sampled the different books on our table.

On Monday, we had a fascinating afternoon with our visitors Pete and Jane who taught us about the traditional roses and castles artwork on narrowboats. We learnt the techniques to paint our own roses and created our own pictures for our Learning Journey books.

In History, we learnt about the famous civil engineer, Thomas Telford. We learnt how important he was to Wrenbury thanks to his work building the cantilever bridges in the village and along the canals of Great Britain.

In RE, we've been learning more about mosques as part of our work on Islam. We've been creating our own models and are able to name the different features of mosques.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! Don't forget to find two books that you might like to read and we will see if we can order them from the library.
