What a busy week we have had in Base 4!

Monday seems like only yesterday and yet we have achieved so much in such a short space of time. This week we have been carrying on with our book Tortuga and even took turn 'hot seating' Tortuga herself and exploring her feelings as a great storm rolled across her home. We then looked at how the author's use of colour helps to portray different emotions. We have a fantastic discussion in class about this and came up with some amazing ideas! We then moved on to researching and creating a Non-Chronological Report all about Ghost Crabs, that Tortuga comes across on her journey to find a new home.

In Maths we have spent the week looking at time and all the key facts surrounding time itself. We then moved onto converting 12 hour times to 24 hour times and back again. Some of us even solved problems involving time. We will be revisiting time next term so please keep going over these key facts!!

Now that the weather is getting better (one can hope!) we will venturing outside for PE once again on a Monday. Please make sure that your PE kids are in school on a Monday — Trainers and tracksuit bottoms are fine as it is still pretty cold and wet!

This week I have included two books that I would definitely recommend. Feel free to pop into our room and have a look through them and they are available to buy from most places for not much money. I have found them very useful in explaining difficult concepts and providing a visual representation of different aspects of the curriculum. They cover ALL areas of SPaG and Maths and I have definitely found them very useful (I'm not on commission, honest!).
