Another busy week has gone by in Base 5! We have completed our first few topic work pages, combining geography, maths and art and I must say, the pages look very effective.
In English this week we have written letters to our partner school in Kenya- everyone is really excited about this and have been imagining our pen-friends opening and enjoying our letters. We can't wait to get some in return, we asked so many questions- we will find out such a lot!
We have had another wonderful (but rather blustery) John Muir adventure, we saw skylarks, lapwings and marsh harriers and thankfully no adders! We have learnt such a lot about the world around us...next week explore home!
In maths we have completed our unit on place value and everyone has learnt so much- well done Base 5, you really super focused on your learning and it shows. Next week we move on to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
We have had our first swimming lesson of the term- the teacher said that you were a wonderful group of chidlren and simply couldn't praise you enough- you should be very proud of the lovely young people that you are.
Another super week had by all in Base 5! Have a lovely weekend.

What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...
Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
