Ms Huntington: October 2015
Wow what a busy week! We are really enjoying the beautiful weather. We have taken a lot of our learning outside this week. We had great fun re-telling the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears in our wood. We used the bridge to tell the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have some scary Trolls in Base 1!
We collected items from nature and then we had to match the amount of items to the numeral, it was great fun! We made a human number line by working together as a team to put the numbers in the right order!
Then we became scientists, we took magnifiers outside to look for really interesting items from nature. We made a nature tray and we had a go at drawing some of our wonderful collections. Freddie brought in some wonderful conkers from his walk at the weekend. He really enjoyed showing them to everyone.
We are getting very good at PE in the hall, we are learning to control our bodies and our equipment. We had to find all the different ways to use a bean bag, hoop and this week we used air balls.
On Friday we had our first Mystery Reader, it was Charlie's Nanna! What a surprise he got when he opened his eyes and found his Nanna sitting in the Teacher's chair ready to read a story!
Please speak to us if you would like to give your child a nice surprise by being a Mystery Reader!

Now, that IS how you do a week at school!We have had a wonderful time on our school trip- we braved the cold weather and, in true Base 5 style, got stuck in!

The children really did do an...
What a busy few weeks Base 3 have had! In Maths, the children have been learning all about fractions! They recapped their learning of what a fraction is, and thought about what makes a whole. They looked at tenths as fractions and decimals moving on to placing fractions on a number line. The children finished the week by learning how to find a fraction of an amount, using a bar model to help...
