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!

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
