Mr. Lauder: April 2015
This past week in Base 5 we have been revising for our upcoming SATs by developing our problem solving skills in Maths, practicing our 'slow motion' writing skills in Literacy and learning about plant adaption to finish off our Science unit.
On Wednesday the children were treated to an afternoon of optical illusion art with Mrs Payne and they have produced some interesting pieces which will be shared on the website in the near future.
The children also got the opportunity to meet our new Music teacher, Mrs Pascall, and very much enjoyed their first lesson.
Sportscape PE sessions have now changed to Thursday however PE will still remain on Monday afternoons therefore for this term our PE days will be Mon & Thurs, please can children be reminded to bring in kit for these days.
This upcoming week we are exploring a new class text in Literacy, 'The Ghost of Thomas Kempe' by Penelope Lively, learning more about fractions and shape in Maths and continuing to work hard on our revision for our upcoming SATs.
Keep up the great work Base 5!!
