B Cador: October 2018
Base 4 have had a busy and successful week this week. Not only did they work really hard but they also received a Golden Ticket for 100% attendance! Well done, Base 4.
In literacy, the children's work was inspired by a picture book called Inside the Villains - a wonderful book based on three, well known, story villains — the wolf, the giant and the witch. As the children soon found out — appearances can be deceptive (as the flaps of the book were lifted!) and these three 'villains' didn't always turn out to be who the children thought they were!
The children continued working on number and some problem solving in maths this week.
On Thursday morning, the Fire Service came to teach the class about Fire Safety through their Smokebusters programme, whilst on Thursday afternoon they had a PE lesson with Sportscape and an RE lesson with Mrs Clarke, looking at places of pilgrimage.
On Friday, I had a lovely day with the children. We watched a short clip by an art historian, who was talking about the war artist Paul Nash and bringing to life some of his great works of art based on the battle field landscapes of WW1. We looked at a number of his art works and discussed what we saw and the techniques he had used. We then had a go at creating our own war art, inspired by Paul Nash's works of art, using chalk pastels rather than paint. You can see in the photos some of the children's great efforts. I was particularly impressed by Izabel who found the working with chalk tricky to start off with but looked carefully at the shapes Nash created in his work, recreated them in her own and persevered with working with the chalks to achieve a wonderful piece of art work. Other fantastic works were created by Nathan, Sophie, Heather, Laura, Dom, Belle and Jerry and are on display in the classroom. You can see their art work in the photos linked to this newsfeed.
Keep up the great work Base 4!
