Base 5 Week One!

Home » News » Base 5 Week One!

And...stop! What a busy, bustling few days we have had- I'm not quite sure where the time has gone!

We have learnt all about our new topic and book — the amazing Mortal Engines- we all want the class text to read; I'll have to order even more copies already! We have learnt about our new roles and the expectations for Base 5- I have to say that I am really impressed. Base 5- your ACHIEVE learning behaviours this week have been simply brilliant. Already you are getting to grips with what 'learning' really means; it is the process of gaining knowledge not the knowledge gained. You have shown some great deeper thinking and problem solving when creating our exciting art/ DT projects and are also experts at tidying up too! Excellent !
Our balloons are now up and looking fabulous in the classroom, we have completed our cogs for our front covers, we have learnt a great deal about the amazing blue whale, woken ourselves up with some arithmetic, had a PE lesson (while completing some super yoga poses) and really focused on our reading and reading books. All in 3 days! Crikey!
I hope that you have all enjoyed it as much as I have- I am really looking forward to the year ahead of us and am excited to see what we can achieve; based on today's work the world is our oyster!
Have a great weekend and I will see you all on Monday.

Great work Base 4.We've been investigating the number 1914 all week, as this was the year that Ernest Shackleton set sail on the Endurance. We came up with as many facts as we could about the number, partitioning into thousands...
