We have certainly worked the children hard this week and they have shown how fantastic they are!

In English, the children have been writing their Roman reports. They have been looking at the use of fronted adverbials to start their sentences and we have also looked at the structure of sentence types. They have been working very hard, using all their research to construct their writing. We will be finishing them next week and then recording them for all to see in assembly. I’m sure some will make it onto twitter for parents to see too!

In Maths this week the children have been really challenged. We have been looking at division and how we can use the bus stop method to divide large numbers by smaller numbers. I think the children will agree this is not an easy thing to tackle. But they have been a credit to themselves and worked so hard. We haven’t all quite got it yet, but we will get there when we visit it again later in the year.

In Topic this week, we have looked at the Roman journey to Britain. This time, we were looking specifically at the challenges faced by the soldiers on their journey. We also thought about how Claudius managed to bring elephants to Britain. Where did they come from?

In music, we started to learn a song about the Romans, and if you look at our class twitter, you will be able a sneak peak of us singing it.

In science, we used our data collected from the experiments with Mr Lally to make a line graph of our results. We will be looking at the data and our graphs next week and seeing what we can learn from it.

In P.E. children have developed their hockey skills with Mr Smith. They also used the gymnastic skills they have learnt to compete in a series of unusual races.

Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on Mondays and Tuesdays. There are still children missing out on PE lessons because they do not have kit.

Our star of the week this week was Diana for her fantastic resilience in Maths, trying to understand the bus stop method. She found it difficult at first but is getting there!

The Championship points winner this week was Aalia!

Newsletters went out on Friday, please make sure you have a look at one as there are lots of important dates on it!

Have a good weekend!

Mr Bennett
