Ms Huntington: April 2016
Lots of fun things have happened in Base 1 this week!
We are very proud of our computer drawings of animals. It was very tricky to draw them and colour them in. When we had finished, we even pressed the print button and went to collect it from the photocopier!
In our writing this week we have written clues so that our friends have to guess which animal we were describing. I wonder if anyone will guess? We will have to wait until Tuesday to find out!
We started making our animal masks on Monday; when they are finished, we will put them on to the front covers of our 'Amazing Animals' topic books.
On Tuesday we went around to the front of the school to see what the cheeky birds have been doing. They have been trying to collect sticks to make their nests. They are quite clumsy because we found a very big pile where the birds had dropped their sticks! We collected the sticks to find out which ones were the longest and the shortest; then we put them in order.
On Wednesday we had our pond dipping session with Mrs Greenhough and Mrs Ashley. We had a lot of fun looking for creatures in the pond. We found lots of tadpoles. We have been learning about the life cycle of the frog.
We enjoyed doing our number learning outside this week. We played team games to try to find the answer to addition questions. It was very exciting!
To end our very busy week, the library van brought us lots of fantastic books about animals. We really enjoyed looking at them.
At the end of the day on Friday, we enjoyed eating a delicious birthday cake, another little person in our class is now 5! We are all growing up so quickly.
Thank you it was delicious.
We hope you have a very enjoyable bank holiday weekend.
Ms Huntington, Mrs Parsons and Mrs Wimpenny.

Base 5 it has been simply wonderful having your lovely faces back in the classroom, all refreshed and eager to learn.

We have played maths games- you can see the tension on the children's faces; could they roll the digit they needed or would it lose the game for them? In our English we have begun our own...
