Mr. Lauder: May 2015
This week in Base 5 we have continued working hard on our revision for SATs. In Maths the children have been revising their understanding of data handling and problem solving. In Literacy we have been reading our class text "The Ghost of Thomas Kempe' and the children have been answering reading comprehension questions based on the book in preparation for their reading SAT.
The children have started their new Science topic 'Light and Sight' by investigating different sources of light (this photo is from the investigation activity) and in the coming weeks the children will develop their understanding of reflections and shadows.
In Art we used a light source (a torch) to create shadows of objects which we then sketched onto paper and used shading to try and capture the effect. We will develop these in future weeks using other art forms.
Finally, this coming week we have our SAT tests. These will take place everyday until Friday, timetables have been sent out to parents previously however below is a summarised timetable:
- Mon- Reading test
- Tues- Short answer Grammar test and Spelling test
- Wed- Maths test 1 and Mental Maths
- Thurs- Maths test 2 and Level 6 Maths
Good luck to all the children in Base 5, I am sure that with all the hard work they have put in, they will get the result they want!
