This week in Base 5 we have focused on our Literacy, editing and finishing our spooky diary entries and then we created miniature diary booklets for them (see picture attached). The children finished the week in Literacy looking at formal letters and will be writing some formal letters linked to our class text, this coming week.

In Maths the children worked on their understanding of angles and shape by taking on 'The Super Polygon-angle Challenge'... and won! The children created some fascinating polygon's using string and blue-tac, then collected data about their shape before finally measuring and ordering the angles they had created.

We have also had the opportunity to practice and develop our cricket skills during PE this week and this has been extremely beneficial as the Quick-Cricket competitions are just around the corner.

In Music, the children have been reviewing the key components of musical composition and Mrs Pascal has been very impressed with their enthusiasm and the children's desire to develop their understanding of the key musical terms. Well done!

Finally, all of Base 5 would just like to take this opportunity to thank all children, parents and staff for supporting our 'Bake Sale' at the end of last term. We managed to raise £61 selling our goods during both break times. We hope to arrange another fundraising event soon, with all proceeds continuing to go towards our residential trip to Robinwood on the 8th of July. Thank you!

What a fabulous week we have had getting ready for our harvest celebrations! In preparation for the harvest service next Tuesday we have been working hard to learn the words and actions for the songs we will sing as a class and with the rest of the school. Also as part of our harvest preparations it was our job to find out about how bread is made, so our learning this week was all focussed...
