Base 10

We are Base 10!


Our teachers are Miss Watton and Mrs Ward. 


We are a hard working class who aim to have lots of fun along the way!



Before you scroll down and have a look at what we've been up to, please take a minute to cast your eye over these important bits:


National Curriculum

If you would like to have an idea of what the children will be up to this year, the following link will give you access to the National Curriculum for Year 4. Take a deep breath and dive in! 



In Base 10 we expect to see at least five reading diary entries each week which are rewarded with an entry into the school's Friday book raffle. All of the children in Base 10 love reading to an adult, and it would help them if you let them read to you too. I have sent home a bookmark with ideas about the kinds of questions you can ask the children as they read.



P.E is every Monday (Dance - indoor) and Tuesday (outdoor).  Please send your child's P.E. kit in on a Monday and leave it in school until Friday as there may be other opportunities for P.E. sessions throughout the week.


The school P.E uniform consists of a white t-shirt, black or blue jumper/sweatshirt, black or blue shorts/joggers and trainers/plimsolls.  No football kits are allowed. 



Homework helps the children consolidate their learning or prepare for new subjects. It is set on a Friday and must be returned the following Wednesday to be marked. 

In addition, the children are given spellings each Friday which they should practise in preparation for a test held the following Friday - these are spellings they have been learning in the classroom during the week. 5 of these words are taken from the rule we have been practising that week and 5 spellings are taken from the Common Exception Words list for Year 3/4. Please find a link to the full list below. 


I am always available at the door for a quick chat in the morning or after school. Please speak to me if you would like to arrange a longer appointment.

Robot Music


In our Music lesson today, we had a go at making our own robot compositions, inspired by the song "We Are The Robots" by the band Kraftwerk. Here are some of our favourites:

Our Class Assembly


On Friday 9th November, Base 10 presented our Class Assembly to teachers, pupils and parents. 

We chose to base our assembly on Remembrance Day as this year commemorates 100 years since the end of the First World War.
