SS: December 2016
Yet another busy week had in Base 4! So busy in fact that we have been writing persuasive letters trying to get an extra day at the weekend and shorten the school day! We have used lots of fantastic vocabulary and have really tugged on the heart strings! We are really starting to mature as writers and are using all the learnt techniques in our writing to great effect! Well done everyone!
In Maths we have been looking at Area and finding the area of different shapes including compound shapes by breaking them up into easy to manage rectangles! Very complex stuff but everyone has managed it well. Mrs Winward and I are very impressed.
In topic we have finished our animals and their habitats fact-files and they are looking stunning ready to be stuck into our topic books.
We have finished our assessments for this term (yay!) and everyone showed us what they have learnt this year so far. Everyone did their best and should be proud of the progress they are making. Well done to all.
The adverts for Chester Zoo look amazing and you have obviously put a lot of time and effort into creating these so we will display these in the classroom! Well done!
