Goodnight Mr Tom

Base One are reading Goodnight Mr Tom and today as part of their learning, they have been writing an additional chapter to the story.

Mrs Smith said that there were lots of creative ideas and she was really happy with how hard they were working.

We are sure that the children would be happy to tell you about this lesson and everything that they have learned.

DT in Base 2

Last week in DT, Base 2 learned a variety of new skills in woodwork and made mechanical toys from wood.

During the lesson, children learned to use woodworking tools safely and correctly with the help of the staff in the room.

They learned to measure, mark and check the accuracy of the jelutong and dowel pieces that they needed to cut and also to use a bench hook effectively and safely.

Children learned that saws have sharp teeth and can be dangerous if not used properly.

Meet Base Two

Year 6 children in Base Two have been introducing themselves to the rest of the class and talking about their likes and dislikes and their hopes and dreams.

We have shared a few with you here:

Base 2 Maths

Children in Base 2 are working on their mental maths this morning.

They are adding mentally, including with large numbers and they are solving reasoning questions involving addition.

Children are learning to add whole numbers mentally by using number bonds and place value knowledge while also learning the place value of each digit in a number.

By the end of the lesson they should understand how to solve a range of reasoning questions involving addition.

As you can see, they were all working hard!

Welcome Back!

For the last few months, we have been using the school blogs to keep the children in touch with school and to let us know what they have been up to on lockdown or in school if they were able to return in June. We loved seeing everything the children were doing. It was great to keep up with the work the children were doing as well as seeing the fun they were having outdoors and in the kitchen (lots of lovely baking going on!) But most importantly, we hope it gave the children and the staff a continued link with school.

The last few weeks have been busy with new arrangements for opening school and the children have settled in well and are getting used to all the new arrangements.

Starting this week, we plan to start using the blogs again to keep up with what is going on in the classrooms and show you some of the learning that is taking place across the school.

Watch this space!
