Miss Phillips: June 2016
Welcome back to the final term of this academic year; it was lovely to hear about everyone's half terms. Due to the beautiful weather we have managed to do some of our learning outside, which has been lovely. With the warmer weather, we need to make sure that water bottles are in school and hats are worn for play time.
In maths this week, we have continued our work with fractions, decimals and percentages. We have been securing our skills when simplifying, converting, adding/subtracting and multiplying using fractions, decimals and percentages. We have a look at finding fractions, percentages and decimals of amounts, which we then had to apply to some more challenging problems. These skills have all been applied to different types of questions and problems to further our understanding. Next week we are moving onto statistics, including reading times tables and lien graphs.
Our Literacy lessons have turned the children into very persuasive people. We have been writing a persuasive text, to persuade people to visit Chester Zoo. We discussed the various features needed to write a good one and the language we need to use. The writing this week has been excellent, with a range of vocabulary being used along with punctuation being used accurately and consistently! Next week we are going to be writing some exciting animal poems, using what we found out from Chester Zoo.
In Geography we discovered the three courses of a river, upper, middle and lower. We had a look at various pictures of each course and discussed what we could see in each, whilst learning the geographical names for different land features, such as interlocking spurs and v-shaped valleys. We wrote a description for each course using the vocabulary and describing the features present.
On Wednesday we had a very different day on Wednesday, but a very exciting one. The weather was fantastic for our street party to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday, we all got to sit outside and enjoy our special meal with parents and staff. We also heard the news of the Flying Scotsman travelling through Wrenbury Railway Station. So Base 4 and 5 went along to wait on the platform for it to come past. It was a fantastic experience for us all and the children's behaviour was impeccable and they were all very patient. In between going to the Railway station we did some PE, practising for both Town Sports and Sports day.
Well done Base 4 for an excellent first week back, let's keep it up until the end of term, so that we can enjoy all of the exciting opportunities coming up.
Please don't fall behind with your homework, I expect homework to be done to a high standard and be given in on time. Keep practising your spellings and times tables.

What a wonderful visit we had this morning! As part of our farming topic, we were visited by two tractors; one old and one new. The children were wowed by them and asked some wonderful questions. They wanted to know how and why the tractors had changed over time, what they were made of and how much weight they could pull. Thank you to the lovely farmers who took time out of their very busy day to...
