R Charlesworth: January 2019
Base 5- what a great week we have had together. We began our week by learning about our new topic and beginning our new book ' Exodus'.
In English we have been looking closely at the island of Wing (the setting of the beginning of our book). We have used the text to help us work out the location of the key places on the island and also looked at bit deeper to see what we could find hidden between the lines. We have also looked at some extracts from other amazing books and used those to help us create pieces of description focused on Wing.
In maths we have been looking at decimals, what their values are, how and why they may move and how to times these. We have investigated and challenged our thinking this week and, although it may have driven the children a little mad, they seem to have enjoyed the challenge!
We have also begun our Art and DT project. We were inspired by the work of Antony Gormely and his sculptures at Crosby Beach (Another Place) so we used his ideas to help us create our own sculptures. We have created haunting houses; abandoned and run down. We then created a frame and stilts for these so that next week we can install them in our school pond — a village drowned much like Wing in our story. The children have thoroughly enjoyed this and really have done a fantastic job. I can't wait to see what these will look like when they are placed underwater!
Thank you for a great week Base 5 — and I look forward to more of the same next week. Enjoy your weekend.

Another busy week has flown by in Base 3. This week, we were amazed by water! We began learning about the water cycle by drinking water that was billions of years old! The water we were drinking may have been sucked up by the trunk of a woolly mammoth or even supped Tutankhamun! The children loved the thought of this and we then learnt about the water cycle — the best recycling system! This...
