S Sargeant: January 2017
Welcome back Base 4!
Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year. We have only been back 3 days but we have definitely earned the weekend break!
We have worked very well with Mrs Cador this week to introduce our topic of Journeys through the book 'Kensuke's Kingdom' by Michael Morpurgo. We began by predicting what we thought would happen in the story and we produced some fantastic pieces of writing. Following on from this, we looked at 'The Great Wave Off Kanagawa' by Hokusai. We used different artistic techniques to focus on various sections of the image and then chose our preferred technique(s) to create a bigger picture. We also learnt about Hokusai and wrote a biography of his life.
In Maths we have looked at another technique for multiplication — short multiplication — and have become much more confident using this quicker method when solving problems. We can now use three different methods to solve multiplication problems: short multiplication, grid method and partitioning. The MyMaths homework this week focuses on short multiplication.
Keep up the good work Base 4 and enjoy the weekend; you have earned it!!
Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward.
