Base 5 have had a very busy week this week! The children have been busy revising for their SATS tests, putting the finishing touches to their learning journeys, producing some great art work and continuing with our science topic.

In Literacy we have been revising all those tricky words for SPaG: modal verbs, main, subordinate and relative clauses, subordinating and co-ordinating conjunctions, active and passive voice and relative and possessive pronouns. We have started planning for a piece of writing about Mountain Gorillas to link in with our text, Gorilla Dawn. The children have had plenty of time in school to research and plan their report, but if they still need to find information or wish to find pictures to go with their report, they should do this over the weekend ready to start writing on Tuesday.

In maths we have been revising shape and the four operations. We have also spent time investigating metric and imperial measurements, converting ml to pints, pints to gallons and miles to km and vice versa.

In Science, the children enjoyed finding out about continuous and discontinuous variation, by investigating fingerprints, height, eye colour, the way we fold our arms, whether we have a 'widow's peak' and whether we have free or joined ear lobes. The children also did their own research on animals that can survive some of the harshest conditions and how they adapt.

The children produced some great dragon artwork to go with their poems about dragons after learning about St. George's day. I am busy getting these up on the wall at the moment. Feel free to pop in and have a look next week!

Our Gorilla Dawn Learning Journeys are near completion now, with just a few more pages to add. After SATS we will be starting our new novel 'The Weirdstone of Brisingerman' which I am sure the children will enjoy as much as I did.

Enjoy the long bank holiday weekend!
