R Charlesworth: April 2018
What a wonderful start to the summer term- happy, bubbly children, sunshine and super learning. Who could ask for more?
This week, in English, we have completed our letters to our local MP regarding plastics. These are fantastic. Really fantastic!
In maths, Y6 have been looking at geometry- angles, triangles and problem solving. Year 5 are tackling decimals, looking at different strategies to add and subtract and problem solving too. You are working so hard — I am very proud of you all.
We have been exploring the Mayan civilisation- finding out the weird and wonderful of an ancient people.
We have continued our RE learning, looking at Buddhism, creating a beautiful topic book page. We have also planned an investigation into waste (linking to our work on plastics), deciding on what materials we would like to bury with the aim of learning about which items decompose and at what rate. Base 4 have also enjoyed a fun lesson of PE in the sunshine.
We finished off the week with sharing the fantastic homework projects that had been produced, everyone thoroughly enjoyed looking at the work and we were amazed by the detail and effort that had gone into them. The winner will be announced next week. I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
