What a great start to the new year Base 2 have had so far! It has been lovely to getting to know all of the children in the class and seeing every child trying their very best in everything we have done.

In Maths we have started with reading and writing numbers in both words and numeral, which then allowed us to start looking at place value identifying the tens and ones within a number. to do this we have used bead strings and dienes to help us. Some of us then moved on to applying these skills to a range of questions. Next week, we will continue to work on place value and moving towards comparing numbers.

In Literacy, we have been introduced to Traction Man, who is a very kind and brave action figure. We started the week making predictions and asking questions about the books. To ask questions we had to use key question words and question marks. We then found out that the animals in the story had been attacked by evil pillows, but Traction Man was there to save the day. We became the animals and first discussed feelings, developing a range of new vocabulary to use. We were then able to apply this within a letter to Traction Man to say thank you. Every one tried very hard to ensure they used capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, a questions and feeling adjectives. Next week, we will be digging deeper into our story and discovering what Traction Man will be doing next.

We have made a start on our Science work for this term, looking at everyday materials. We explored different materials and named each one. We then explored the properties of these materials and learnt new vocabulary such as brittle and rigid. Next week we will be carrying out a scientific experiment exploring how certain materials can be altered.

On Wednesday afternoon, Base 2 had their first Gymnastics session which was very much enjoyed by everyone. We also had our first PE lesson on Friday as well, where we were practising our throwing and catching skills using a chest pass. By the end of the lesson everyone was more accurate with their throwing and catching.

The children are working hard with their reading at home and are starting to get higher on our reading ladder. Each time you read at home you get to jump up one step on the ladder! Remember to also practise your spellings and times tables.
