Mr Lindop: May 2019
We've had a good week in Base 4 this week.
In Maths, we've been solving money based problems, adding amounts and finding out how to calculate the price of items with special offers. We've also been learning a song to help us learn our 9x tables. It's been great to see the effort that the class have been putting into practicing their times tables pay off as our class average wen up from 78 to 89/116 on our weekly test. Well done to Izzy, Harry and Alesha in particular whose scores have shot up this week.
In English, we have been studying our text from The White Giraffe by Lauren St.John. We've been learning about relative clauses and how to use them and exploring character descriptions of the White Giraffe.
In the afternoons, we've been focusing on Geography this week. We've been using our previous knowledge from our earth and space topic last term to understand about climate zones, the tropic lines and the equator. There have been some really impressive questions and theories as to why the climates are how they are from the children and they've worked really hard on the first page of their learning journey books.
Finally, a huge well done to Base 4 in RE this week. Mrs. Clarke couldn't speak highly enough about the level of discussion about the question "What is freedom?" Congratulations to all of Base 4 for your achieve award from Mrs. Clarke.

The Midnight Walk is one of St Luke's biggest annual fundraisers that keeps the finances topped up to deliver the amazing care they offer, not only to those towards end of life but also to their families. A donation however big or small will, I'm sure, be gratefully...
