This week in Base 4 we have continued our Journey down the River Sea following Maia's journey into the Amazon. This prompted us to journey into our own forest area and after some exploring we were inspired to write some fantastic pieces of descriptive writing. We have been using compound and complex sentences to 'up level' our writing and the pieces of writing we produced are stunning! We have written them up in neat and are looking forward to adding them to our rainforest display in the classroom.
In Maths we have been looking at adding and subtracting and we have been using our reasoning skills to solve multi step problems involving addition and subtraction. All our hard work has paid off and we are all much more confident using these skills now.
We are very much enjoying our music time with Mrs Rowlands and are mastering our first note and the techniques required to play these instruments. Well done to everyone who has been practising at home or in school — don't forget to ensure they are in school every Thursday!
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.

What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...
Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
