Lent 2

Welcome back Base 4!

We have certainly hit the ground running with another busy week. Despite only having a 4 day week, we have definitely crammed in enough work for 5 days! Following on from The Storm Whale, we have now delved into Tortuga by Paul Geraghty, who came into our school not too long ago! Despite only looking at the first page we have written some fantastic expanded noun phrases including determiners and prepositions. This has led onto us writing a fantastic setting description around a tropical island in the middle of a storm.

In Maths we have revisited division and have used the bus stop to help us solve problems. Everyone in the class has shown resilience in sticking with the task and should be proud that by the end of the week they are on the way to mastering bus stop division.

As this week marked the start of Lent, we all made a pledge in class to help out more at home (look at for this Mums and Dads!) and created our own Lenten Tree. We each created a leaf and wrote down on the back what we are sorry for and on the green side we wrote down what we are going to do to help each other out over Lent. We then also had the opportunity to give something up for Lent and we placed these around our tree. Let's see how long we can last before we are tempted to give in!

Thursday was World Book Day and is was brilliant to see so many of you in such fantastic costumes and thank you to everyone at home for taking the time to create them! We had a great day exploring different books, talking about our favourite books and taking part in a rather difficult World Book Day Quiz.

Next week, our swimming session has been swapped with Base 3 so we will be going on Friday NOT Wednesday — for next week only. This is to accommodate PC Fletcher's visit about internet safety on Wednesday.

Have a lovely weekend

Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward

We are all beginning to feel a little sadness about our year 6 pupils leaving us but what a lovely surprise they received this morning. Freya kindly made them a very special garden, filled with lovely flowers and stones- this really made them smile; what a kind thing to do. Thank you...

My goodness — we couldn't be more proud of Max and Harley; they have been the most wonderful news readers! The children all cheered and thanked the boys for their interesting and engaging assemblies, speaking of their favourite memories which included: women's football, the red moon, solar eclipses and cricket! Max and Harley, thank you so much — you will be greatly missed but I know...
