Mr Sargeant: October 2016
This week Base 4 have worked very hard both indoors and outdoors! We have been writing letters to Maia's friends in English and focusing on improving our sentences by writing with compound and complex sentences. This has enabled us to produce yet more fantastic pieces of writing that we are proud to show off on display in our classroom. In Maths we have been looking at multiples and factors and investigating the Lowest Common Multiple and Highest Common Factors! We also delved into prime numbers and the rules for finding them. All in all a very hard-working week!
Believe it or not there was still time for plenty more in the afternoons and the Year 5 children worked very hard with Mr McGregor and are now trained to be play leaders, which gives them the opportunity to lead playground activities at lunchtime. Mr McGregor was very impressed with everyone and I can't wait to see this in action. The Year 4s have also channelled their inner Ground Force skills this week and have renovated our garden area — which involved de-weeding and tidying up our garden plot and then planting lots of bulbs ready to watch them grow in the spring. We had lots of fun doing this and we can't wait to see and taste our work when it is fully grown. Thank you to our helper Issac and Mrs Wimpenny who helped us with our planting! There is still plenty to do in our garden so there will be lots of opportunities over the coming months.
On Friday afternoon Mrs Sanders from Brine Leas High School visited our class and introduced us to programming with the BBC Microbits. We all had a fantastic time and learnt lots. We hope Mrs Sanders can visit again!
We are very much enjoying our music time with Mrs Rowlands and are mastering the techniques required to play the trumpet and the trombone. Please remember that if you take them home you need to bring them in on a Thursday!. Well done to everyone who has been practising at home or in school.
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.
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.
