Miss Davies: December 2015
We have had an eventful couple of weeks in Base 2.
In literacy we have had a visit from Mrs Carden, who shared some video clips with us all. The videos showed how the cows get milked on her farm. This linked with our history lessons, learning about how farming has changed over the years. We talked about how milking used to be done by hand but now machines do the milking. The children used this information to write instructions on how to milk a cow and thanks to Mrs Carden were able to use technical language like units and udders in their writing. The focus of our task was to introduce the use of ordering words like: first, after, next, then and lastly.
In maths we have finished off our shape topic and ended our learning by investigating 3d shapes. We have also returned our focus to practical number work and counting. These are important skills which the children have benefitted from revisiting. Next week we will be looking at symmetry.
We have learned about the different categories of animals in science, following on from our work on herbivores, omnivores and carnivores. The children had to sort animals into their correct groups: insects, mammals, reptiles and many more.
In RE/PHSE we have focused on friendship this term and what it means to be a good friend. We learned more this week around this topic using the story of Andrew and Peter the disciples.
The highlight of the week has been our school nativity! The children have worked very hard and put on wonderful shows yesterday for parents and visitors! A huge well done to all of the children for being so brilliant and learning all of their lines! I would also like to thank the parents for bringing in such fabulous costumes for the children, they looked lovely!
There will be more learning to report on next week but with a little added Christmas sparkle!
Please, if you have any unwanted cereal boxes and/or kitchen roll holders can the children bring them in for Tuesday 15th December for an Art/DT project? Thank you.
Have a great weekend!

Base 2 had a very messy week last week! Some mischievous elephants had jumped from their book and entered our classroom to have their breakfast. They made such a mess whilst having their breakfast. there were toys all over the place, spilt breakfast cereal, teabags thrown across the table and plates turned upside down! We decided we must describe the mess so that people would know how much mess...
