Phew! What a fantastic and busy week we have had in Base 4!
This week we have been looking at persuasive writing. We began by trying to convince me not to send my letter to Mrs Cador aiming to convince her to eradicate break times — more learning time!! We used this letter to build a success criteria of what to expect in a persuasive writing letter and used this to form our debate on whether or not we should have a school uniform. We had a fantastic debate with each side coming up with some excellent arguments and reasons. Then we moved onto writing our own letter based around our story which involved trying to keep our brothers out of our room — we related to this rather well!
In Maths we have been revising fractions and recapping how to add and multiply fractions using learnt strategies. It is so great to see how far we have come since we first covered this last term! We are all now more confident and able to apply these concepts to harder problems which develop our reasoning and problem solving! Well done everyone!
In topic we have carried on looking at Native American housing by beginning to design our own tepees. We have come up with different designs and concepts for our tepees and have begun to look at how these houses were constructed. Don't forget to bring your stocks in next week so we can actually construct our tepees! You can also bring in any items to decorate the area around your tepee — but keep it simple!
All in all another very week has flown by!
Have a fantastic weekend!
Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward
