And... relax!

What a busy week this has been- and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. Reading week has been great fun; from downing tools when the school bell went for a 20 minute read to playing front- cover charades! We have enjoyed our book swap and loved dressing up for world book day and on top of this we have also enjoyed our usual class book club- reading our books and enjoying lunch together.

This week we have also been designing and writing about our own sea-cities, like New Mungo in our story. The children have created some very impressive drawings and even more impressive description;

"Vengeful and relentless, the ocean grabs and claws at the camp, seeking its revenge on the tired, helpless people."

"There it was, the heart of this nightmare; an immense semi-transparent cylindrical tower."

"Boats continuously rock from side to side, a repetitive motion that only confirms he despair of the people."

In maths we have been investigating and exploring area perimeter, looking at how these link (and maybe when they don't) and what formula is needed to find the area of a range of different shapes.

As well as this, we have been history detectives, using a range of books, artefacts and sources to create theories and ideas about the Stone Age and Stonehenge- something the children really enjoyed.

In French this week the children tackled a complicated French reading text- Madame Sharpe was super impressed with them and said that their approach to this was simply 'outstanding'- well done Base 5.

So, relax and enjoy the weekend ahead of you.

Continuing to explore our Space theme, the children drew around themselves creating an astronaut and set about decorating it. We have turned our handprints into aliens and wrote our names in glitter. The children finished off their mobile of the planets (we may have discovered a few more than in real life!) and hung this in the classroom. It looks super! Last week we made astronaut packed...
