We've had a busy week in Base 3, continuing to settle ourselves into some new routines and our new learning around the Romans theme.

Our class novel has is keeping the children in suspense with Flavia, the main character, having to do some detective work regarding her father's signet ring disappearing! Also for our learning journey work we have spent the week learning the story of Romulus and Remus to inform us of how 'Rome' came to be...

In Literacy we have been working on improving our sentences by joining ideas with conjunctions and this has been applied to our writing of captions to to the Romulus and Remus story. We will edit and final draft this writing next week in order for it to be displayed in our learning journey books.

In Maths we are focusing on number, recalling place value and how we can manipulate digits when adding/subtracting. Some of the children have also been practising there rounding skills to the nearest 10/100/1000 and applying this in a money context.

PE has been all about fitness training, including stamina through football skills. Well done to most children for bringing suitable indoor and outdoor PE kit.

Next week we will be all taking part in some Roman art work, for displays, and drawing skills. Also our swimming lesson will take place next Friday (25th) so please do remember your kits everyone and the guidance regarding this I gave to you via the pastoral meeting notes.

Just a reminder that homework is as follows: Tuesday-MyMaths (complete @ school 8.45 Friday if no internet access) otherwise completed for Friday. Friday- Literacy- must be completed for following Tuesday.
Please keep practising times tables and reading daily, and as of today, spellings also.

It has been really lovely to see the Y4 children return to school ready to pick up from where we left in the summer. Also some Y3 children are really trying hard to meet the expectations of a 'grown up' Key Stage 2 child, so very well done for your positive attitudes, listening and engagement everyday. Let's all keep this in mind for next week!

Have a super weekend
Mrs Carden
