We have had a busy week of learning this week and we have all enjoyed it!

In maths we have been working on using our place value knowledge to help us with mental and written addition. Some of us have been practising our using and applying skills to solve problems and explain our answers. Next week in maths we are focussing on addition and subtraction, both mental and written methods.

Our literacy lessons this week have been focussing on creating rhyming pairs, rhyming phrases and analysing poems, but we also had time to create a class poem using ideas from every child! Next week we will be looking at some more poems, the language we need to use and we will be writing our own poems about the railway.

During our learning journey lessons we have looked at the Queen's very own steam train and created a short descriptive paragraph about her train. The children were very excited to start their drama work for this term which working towards performing a play based on 'The Railway Children', we have found our voices and now we need to work on using our body language. In science we started to investigate what happens when we let go of objects and we found that the force acting on them is gravity, in the next few weeks we will be looking at gravity focussing on what it is and how it works. We will be creating some watercolour landscapes and starting our design and technology projects next week!

We have got a very exciting timetable for next week; we have got Bikeability on Tuesday and Wednesday. We have also got our first mass practice for the 'Singfest' massed choir event that our year 5 and 6 children are taking part in in March.

Our homework tasks over the past couple of weeks have been done to a high standard so thank you for that and keep it up. Don't forget your homework for Tuesday and our spellings and times tables need to be learnt as well.

Thank you for your hard work Base 4!

We are all beginning to feel a little sadness about our year 6 pupils leaving us but what a lovely surprise they received this morning. Freya kindly made them a very special garden, filled with lovely flowers and stones- this really made them smile; what a kind thing to do. Thank you...

My goodness — we couldn't be more proud of Max and Harley; they have been the most wonderful news readers! The children all cheered and thanked the boys for their interesting and engaging assemblies, speaking of their favourite memories which included: women's football, the red moon, solar eclipses and cricket! Max and Harley, thank you so much — you will be greatly missed but I know...
