R Charlesworth: October 2018
Well, what have we been up to this week then?
We have done a super job at our harvest assembly — despite being only 14, the children sung their hearts out! When it came to their turn to sing a verse by themselves their voices rang through the church beautifully. Well done Base 5.
This week we have also completed our 'How To' guides — the children have worked really hard on these and their hard work has paid off. They have also worked very hard on their reading this week, comparing different characters, predicting what they think would happen next and looking deeper into the meaning hidden behind some of the words written. Base 5 — because you are so engaged in the text and your learning, your reading skills are really blossoming, keep up the hard work.
In maths we have been battling with problem solving, this is something that has both baffled and enthralled us — the children didn't want to stop and asked if they could carry on after breaktime! Dedication!
The children are really stepping up to their Y6 roles, with the Year 6 house captains taking full responsibility for organising and carrying out an inter-house dodgeball competition. Base 5 — you are fab!
