Another week has flown by in Base 4. We returned to our plastic experiment; digging up materials and making conclusions about our findings. We have looked at coordinates, time and timetables in maths as well as this we enjoyed taking part in drama and writing the beginning of our own classic stories. We also turned 'The Gut' into a jungle- if you aren't sure what this means just ask the children! We have practiced for town sports and even been swimming! And that doesn't even cover French, RE or PE! Phew! What a week!
The children once again paired up with Base 1 to dig up the materials we planted several weeks ago. The findings were very interesting, some things had decomposed a great deal, some had not changed at all and some simply disappeared! Lily found a tea bag with a centipede in it! The children were fantastic at creating scientific conclusions about what had happened and we have even planned a further experiment in the hope of answering some questions we were left with.
We also had a wonderful array of homework brought in today — the children really have worked so hard on these and had been so careful with their designs, well done I am very impressed!

May the force be with you! Base 4 have had a great week exploring forces in our science week. We've been learning about the pull of gravity and its effects on objects with different mass. We measured the mass and weight of different objects that appeared the same size and then saw how deep a crater they made in sand.Then we learnt about water resistance and used our knowledge to design...
