Mr Sargeant: October 2016
Another busy week has been had in Base 4. We have been exploring yet more writing techniques to make our writing more exciting! It is definitely paying off, as we are no producing fantastic pieces of writing that we love to display on our walls. We have been looking at adverbs and how they tell us how verbs are being done. Next week we are going to be looking at adverbial phrases and fronted adverbials to add even more detail!
In maths we have been exploring multiplication and looking at two different methods — partitioning and grid method. This has really challenged us this week and we have all worked very hard with Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward to develop our skills. We are going to continue this next week so keep practising!
This week we have also been practising very hard for our harvest service at the local church. This was a great success and a massive thank you to everyone who came along and to those who helped us walk to the church and back. We very much appreciate it.
On Friday we carried on coding on both the iPads and the laptops. We are becoming quite the coding masters. Feel free to have a go at home. If you have an iPad download the app: Swift Playgrounds from the App Store. If you have access to the internet go online to http://microbit.org/ to have a go at creating your own microbit code!
A few reminders for next week:
School Photos -> Wed 26th October
Film Night -> Thurs 27th October
INSET Day -> Fri 28th October
We have had a great week in Base 4 -- just a few reminders below:
Homework is given on a weekly basis.
Monday -- English: in the green homework books
Friday -- Maths: Either MyMaths or worksheet. This week it is due in on Thursday as we are not in on Friday!
Spellings: Spellings have been given out for the next 6 weeks. These are to be practised every night and encourage children to find other words that follow the spelling rule (if applicable that week). Spellings can be practised in the back of the green homework books.
Children should be encouraged to read for 10 minutes every night either silently or reading to someone. Pop it in the reading diary so we can sign it off the following day.
Have a lovely weekend
Mr Sargeant and Mrs Winward

Another brilliant week for Base 3! In literacy, we started the week by looking at non-chronological reports and how we could use one to write about the river wildlife from our book 'The Wind in the Willows'. The children decided that first they would need to find out lots of information about the animals, diet, appearance, habitat and even a couple of extra 'interesting facts'...
