Mr. Lauder: May 2015
This week in Base 5 we've been learning all about Islam in RE and we have made information booklets and designed our own Islamic prayer mats. In Computing we've continued our focus on Islam and combined it with programming (using Scratch) to create our own Islamic style geometric patterns. The children really enjoyed creating and debugging their algorithms.
We took advantage of the good weather on Monday and created group gymnastic sequences outside on the grass in PE. In the coming weeks we hope to record these and show some examples on the website.
In Literacy we have started reading our class text 'The Ghost of Thomas Kempe' and the children have been discussing and writing about the spooky setting of the house and the author's effective use of imagery (visual language, 5 senses, hint for your homework!) and personification. We have also continued to practice and revise for SATs and the children have been solving problems involving coordinates and angles; area and perimeter; and fractions, decimals and percentages in Maths.
Keep up the hard work Base 5!!!

Beegu is a very friendly alien and she was looking for some small earth creatures to be friends with, we...
