We have had a fantastic week this week and busy as always!

In English, we have have been getting ready to write our report about the Roman Empire. We have looked at some examples of reports and analysed one to understand the different features. We have now started to plan it, using all our notes we have collected over the last four weeks in English lessons. Next week we are going to finish planning our reports by researching using the iPads and then dive straight into writing them. Once we have written them we will be recording them to show to everybody in assembly!

In Maths, we have have tackled the formal written method for short multiplication, not an easy job! Although children struggled at the start of the week, most of them are now confident in using it and have shown through their beautiful work in their books. It shows, no matter what is put in front of us, as long as we are resilient and have a growth mindset we will always prevail in the end!

In music this week, we were putting our theory into practice. We used musical instruments to develop our understanding of dynamics and tempo and the importance of these key ideas in music.

In PE we have continued with our gymnastics and hockey. Children are really starting to get into the swing of both now!

In science, children have been investigating the temperature of water over time. Using thermometers, children measured the temperature of hot water every minute. Next week, they will be looking at the cup they used and investigating whether using a polystyrene cup will affect their results. They will also be presenting their data as a line graph!

In topic, children became historians this week. Using artefacts found on the Scottish borders, children were able to gain a better understanding of life as a Roman soldier. They also had some fascinating ideas as to what the artefacts were used for 2000 years ago!

Our star of the week this week was Millie. She puts 100% effort into everything and is a true role model for all MRPA students. She shows a fantastic growth mindset and relishes a good challenge during lessons. A true asset to 4CB!

A reminder that homework is due in on Tuesdays. Spelling and times table tests take place on Fridays, so please make sure children are learning them every night at home. Also, reading regularly is vital for children’s progress so please make sure children are reading with somebody at home and writing in their reading records.

Have a good weekend!
