SS: December 2016
Base 4 have had another very busy week! We have worked very hard cramming everything in whilst enjoying a delicious Christmas dinner and singing carols at the Church.
In English we have finished our topic of persuasive writing and produced an absolutely brilliant final piece of writing on why we should shorten the school day! This will be on display in the classroom shortly for you to read so feel free to pop in and take a peek!
In Maths we have revisited rounding and roman numerals and we are now much more confident and fluent in these areas of our mathematical learning. We covered some pretty tricky concepts this week guys so well done! Roman Numerals in particular can be rather tricky and we have mastered them so quickly Mr Sargeant thought we were secretly Romans in disguise!
We have worked extremely hard in the afternoons on our topic books and they are now coming together really well and are looking fantastic! We have put a lot of time and effort into these and the quality of work reflects this! Well done everyone.
We all had a very festive Christmas lunch in which we created Elf hats (Mrs Winward's inspired idea!), that we shared together and was a really nice moment. We had great fun creating the hats and loved wearing them over lunch time. We have kept them for now as we may possibly be needing them again next week! ;). A massive thank you to Mrs Warner and Mrs Speed and the Midday assistants for the Christmas Lunch — it was delicious!
On Thursday night, it was lovely to see so many of you at the church for the Christmas carol concert. The atmosphere was lovely, the children had a great time and this was reflected in their performances. They worked very hard to prepare for it and it was great to see everyone there supporting them!
Have a lovely weekend and come back ready and refreshed for the final push to the end of term!
Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward.

Base 3 have been learning all about why the River Nile was so important to the Ancient Egyptians this week. We talked about the many uses the Egyptians had for the Nile such as, fishing, hunting, trade, farming and transport. The children learnt why the land around the Nile was so good for farming, as well as the many uses of the crops that were grown and taken from the river. As a class, we...
