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.

What a lovely last week of term we have had- so much learning in only 3 days! We started our week with our science experiment- the children carried out the experiments that they had planned last week. They sieved, filtered and evaporated in the hope that they could retrieve a solid from mixtures and solutions. The children were really buzzing about what they were finding. The experiment gave...
