Miss Carter: June 2015
Members of Base 3 have had not only exciting week, but an exciting weekend also!
We have been busy in the school week continuing to master our Journey Man performance ready for Skoolzfest, looking at measure in Maths working on converting and using decimal numbers and also completing some brilliant work on 'The Weighing of the Heart' ritual that took place in Ancient Egypt. The children have been completely enthused by the way Egyptians judged a person's worthiness of the afterlife by the weight of their heart and we have been working very hard on displaying our learning in our Topic Learning Journeys- which includes REAL working beam scales to represent the 'Scales of Ma'at'. It is a must see!
As well as being 'Wild Westerns' on Friday, which was a lot of fun, we have also been busy practising for sports day this week. So we're now keeping our fingers crossed for Wednesday in the hope that the weather will be suitable.
Aside from this however, i have been enjoying spending time with some children from Base 3 at 'Fun in a Field for a Fiver' this weekend, which took place to raise money for, not only our school, but Wrenbury Church and the Wingate Centre also. It was so lovely to see some of Base 3's girls performing songs and dancing, that they have been rehearsing so much for, showing such courage and enthusiasm on the day in Wrenbury on Saturday. We were all so proud of them! Well done girls! As you can see in the pictures, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves! (Sorry for sideways pictures- can't seem to rotate them but they are worth uploading anyway :D)
It was also lovely seeing a few members of Wrenbury Primary School at Bolesworth International today. Lots of fab showjumping and all sorts to see. Come and let me know what you enjoyed the most!
Looking forward to another busy week of sport, drama and, of course, further Egyptian intrigues!

What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...
Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
Continuing to explore our Space theme, the children drew around themselves creating an astronaut and set about decorating it. We have turned our handprints into aliens and wrote our names in glitter. The children finished off their mobile of the planets (we may have discovered a few more than in real life!) and hung this in the classroom. It looks super! Last week we made astronaut packed...
