Miss Davies: May 2016
What a great week in Base 2! The main event was going to Chester Zoo! We had a brilliant time and enjoyed seeing lots of wonderful animals! The children loved visiting the bats in the bat cave and they were complimented on their excellent quiet behaviour when walking through the cave itself. We also saw rhinos, chimpanzees, lions, crocodiles and dart frogs, as well as enjoying an educational talk about the komodo dragons! We were shown real Komodo dragon venom, it was amazing! A huge thank you to all of the parent helpers, your help was invaluable and we enjoyed having you with us on our class outing! We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did!
Our work in literacy this week has been focused on crocodiles and the children have created their own crocodile character as well as a setting for a crocodile story. We have focused on adjectives, noun phrases and extending sentences using and, if, so, but or because. We have tried very hard to check for errors in our work and to up level and improve our writing. In maths we have been focusing on division. Our work in RE has got us talking about special places of worship and we will be thinking about places that are meaningful to us this week and explaining reasons why.
On a separate note, all children have kept their spellings from last week to practise as usual.
More news next week.

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
