Last Week and this week in Base 5

Home » News » Last Week and this week in Base 5

We are in the midst of a busy couple of weeks in Base 5. Last week the children sat their SATs tests and although this is a stressful event for the children they coped extremely well. All children were relatively calm and happy before, during and after their exams. The children put in an excellent effort revising in class during lessons and at home in their own time and I am sure they will be rewarded for their effort.
As a little reward the children celebrated the end of their SATs with a water fight in the sun on Friday afternoon. Good fun was had by all!
This week in Computing we have started to create a spooky building (tying in with our topic on ghost stories) using Google sketch up with some fantastic results. These will gradually be added to as the unit and final half term progresses.
In PE we have continued our gymnastics unit by practicing and developing our basic skills sequences. This week we progressed to performing our sequences on the apparatus with partners.
In Science we have created investigations to discover how shadows are formed and how they are affected by objects. Our next focus will be reflections and how mirrors affect light.
Our Literacy has continued to focus on our class text 'The Ghost of Thomas Kempe' and the children have been analysing how the author creates and builds tension then introduces the 'Ghost'. We are writing our own diary entry detailing a fictional encounter with the paranormal.
Finally in maths we have been solving maths puzzles and working with decimals to enhance our knowledge of place value.
After half term we will delve deeper into our topic work and the topic overview sheet shows most of our upcoming plans in more detail. It can be found on Base 5's class page.
Thank you and stay tuned for further updates.

Base 5 it has been simply wonderful having your lovely faces back in the classroom, all refreshed and eager to learn. We have had a super first week back, filled with fun and obviously lots of learning! We have played maths games- you can see the tension on the children's faces; could they roll the digit they needed or would it lose the game for them? In our English we have begun our own...
