This week has been all change in Base 4, as on Tuesday and Wednesday we spent time in our classrooms for next year.

We had a creative and mysterious couple of days with Mrs. Charlesworth as we paper mach├ęd and painted some giant air haven balloons. Mrs. Charlesworth told us about 'air havens' from a futuristic story, but wouldn't tell us what the book was. We can't wait til next year to find out more about our class novel in Base 5.

Back in Base 4, we studied coordinates in Maths, practicing plotting on the x axis and y axis. Our geography work has seen us using our research skills to find out more information about South Africa ready to present as a poster next week.

We've also had a lot of fun in computer science this week. We've been using scratch to design and create our own chase games. We've had to code sprites to move around using buttons on the keyboard and to chase another animal around the screen. We definitely have some talented computer scientists in our midst and it's been great to see the creativity the class have shown.

Base 3 and 5 were lucky enough to have a special virtual visitor in class this afternoon. Lucy from Chester Zoo spoke to the classes about the different animals that live in the rainforests and how deforestation is affecting them. We all found it really interesting especially the parts about the snakes, orang-utans and jaguars! The children asked some fantastic questions about conservation and...
