Another busy week in Base 4.

We've been working on our new science topic looking at the properties of materials. We've tried to figure out what materials would be best to rebuild the fence at Sawubona Game Reserve from our story after an elephant escaped! We've had some good fun investigating and testing the properties of our materials.

We've also been leaning about measure and converting lengths between cm, m and km. I've been impressed with how well the children have been pushing themselves to interpret what the word problems were asking them to do.

In our English, we explored the ideas of freedom and captivity. After a "bonus playtime" the children quickly realised my trick as we went from having the freedom of the whole playground to ending up trapped in a small corner for all of us to play in. The children used some great words to describe what they experienced, such as cruel, confusing and fearful. A great set up for our writing. Well done Base 4!

The children have been truly inspired by this and created some pieces of work which really impressed Sarah. Well done Base...
