Miss Phillips: December 2015
This week the children in Base 4 have worked their socks off, we have been putting all of our maths and literacy skills to the test and everyone has done their best. I'm very impressed with each child's efforts this week.
We have also worked hard on completing our learning journey books! Our DT pages are complete and look great with each stage of the process documented in the books with their final product and a final written evaluation of their train carriage. We continued our geography this week as well; we looked at rural areas last week so this week we looked at urban areas which are the opposite. We identified characteristics that make an area urban. Following this, we listed as many urban areas in the UK as we could; we found that most of them were the cities in the UK. a decision was made to focus on London as our urban case study. In groups, research was carried out to find as many facts about London as possible, including population, location, and size. Next week, we will continue with our Geography case study of London and compare Wrenbury and London to find out the similarities and differences.
As next week is the last week of a very, very long term our time table will be a bit jumbled. Our Learning Journey books will be completed, we will be practising for our Christmas Carol service on Tuesday (which I am very much looking forward to) and we will have a range of different activities to do (some linked to Christmas). We will also be completing our science topic on friction with some investigations to carry out.
Wednesday will be a very exciting and fun day for everyone in school — it's Christmas lunch and Christmas party day!!
Well done to everyone in Base 4 this week, you have worked exceptionally hard and should be proud of yourselves (I definitely am)!
Please continue learning your times tables, including all the division facts. Try and learn a few of the 100 spellings over the Christmas holidays, you could set yourselves a target to beat!
