Mr Sargeant: September 2016
We have settled really well in Base 4 and have already produced some amazing pieces of work. We are now fully up and running for this school year and have shaken off the cobwebs from the summer holidays! We need to keep this up next week to make sure we keep up this high standard!
This week in Base 4 we have had a fantastic week beginning to explore the Amazon Rainforest. Our amazing Amazon display is taking shape at the back of the classroom and we have begun to look at the many different animals that inhabit this wonderful environment.
In Maths this week we have looked at Place Value and have ordered numbers. We now feel much more confident and have improved our skills ready for next week!
In English we have looked at improving our sentences and how to fit even more awesome adjectives into our sentences.
On Wednesday afternoon we joined schools from across the whole world in taking part in Roald Dahl day! We learned lots of interesting facts and had a very quick draw along with Quentin Blake.
Base 4 also had the opportunity to start learning a brass instrument this week and worked very hard with Mrs Rowlands to familiarise themselves with their new instrument. I can't wait to hear what we sound like after some practice!
Have a lovely weekend,

What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...
Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
