Miss Phillips: March 2016
The last full week of the Spring term has been completed, only four more school days to enjoy!
We have had another busy week, in maths we have been working with angles ensuring we are accurate and able to use a protractor to measure a range of angles, whilst also drawing different types of triangles. Some of us investigated Pythagoras and used his theory to calculate the length of the hypotenuse in right-angled triangles; this tested our knowledge of square numbers. Next week in maths we will put all of our shape knowledge to the test by completing a range of problems which will enable us to apply our skills in alternative ways.
In Literacy, we completed our sets of instructions for making Pitta bread, some were very detailed and well-structured! We then moved on to generating story ideas through the use of drama, we picked a setting, a hero/heroine, a god/goddess and a mythical creature. We had to work on improvising and ensuring the audience knew what was happening when performing. Next week we will be planning and writing our mythical stories ensuring that we develop the characters and plot throughout.
We had a lot of fun on Wednesday afternoon; we held a mini Base 4 Olympics! First we collated ll of our facts about the Olympics to present them in our Learning Journey books, along with the rings that symbolise the Olympics. We then teamed up in threes and planned our own activities to deliver to the rest of the class. The children very much enjoyed being the leaders and also taking part in the activities. Next week we will complete our mini-Olympics!
Base 4 had a lovely trip out on Thursday to Liverpool, we had a long journey but it was worth it once we had got there. The children got to discover the Ancient Greek Gods further, with some of them acting as the Gods. They also got to take part in re-telling the story of Perseus. We also got the chance to discover the other floors of the World Museum, including the Space display, animals and even the bugs!! All the children represented Wrenbury Primary School extremely well and we are very proud of them.
I'm very much looking forward to the next week with all the exciting activities we have got planned, including Singfest and the Easter Service. I look forward to seeing you all at parents evening as well.
