Welcome back Year 6- you all seem refreshed after a lovely break — I'm sure some of you have grown in just a week!
So, another week has flown by in Base 5. We have been very busy and focused as always- in English we have been competing our writing about our Cardingmill Valley visit- we have created a leaflet to explain why this would be such a great place for teachers to take pupils on a trip. In reading we have been looking at an extract from The Star-Spun Web, delving in to the text and looking beyond the lines. The children have really enjoyed this text and have put it on our library list for next week.
In maths we have been working on measures- of all sorts!! Metric, imperial, conversions and comparisons! There are a few key facts that we need to make sure we remember which makes all of our problems solving much easier.
We have also been busy creating Java Script to create images in our computing lessons, I have to say that the chidlren are excellent at this, they have learnt what to do and then created their own spin-offs of the island of Wing or the city of New Mungo from our story.
We have also enjoyed time with our buddies, RE and PE lessons and book club- where we had cups of tea while we enjoyed reading our books quietly together.
I hope that you all have a lovely, restful weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Monday.

We explored different mechanisms and materials that could be used. We...
