R Charleworth: September 2017
Well, Base 4 have had another very busy week! In English we have been developing our newspaper writing, looking at the use of speech, brackets and 'journalistic style'.
In maths we have been working on place value, looking specifically at negative numbers and place value problem solving.
We have continued our computing this week; the children have really persevered and not given up when faced with challenges while making code and loops within that code- well done, it isn't easy!
In science we have finished planning our experiment and we have all attempted to propagate plants. We have taken root cuttings, stem cuttings and leaf cuttings- we will be watching them carefully to see if they take root!
In the middle of the week Base 4 enjoyed 'Parents Lunch' , it was so lovely to see so many parents enjoying a school lunch with their children and taking the time to explore school with them.
On top of all this the children have also worked hard in their RE, and PE lessons including a super swimming session!
Then, to finish off this super week, we had a lovely 'Welcome back' event with tea, cakes and games- with fun had by all. What a busy week Base 4, I hope you enjoy a well deserved rest this 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...
