Cedar’s Writer of the Week last week was Jamie for writing and performing a very exciting commentary script as if he was commentating on a Roman gladiator fight. He worked really hard and showed excellent resilience when working independently and he was able to accurately edit and improve his work to include more description. Great work Jamie, keep it up!
This week at LMPS the festive season has truly started – Christmas jumpers, winter art day, decorating our class tree and singing Christmas tunes! As well as that, we have created our own ‘commentator’ scripts, imagining we are commentating on a gladiator fight in ancient Rome!
What was your favourite part to the week?
On Tuesday 27th, Year 4 were visited by a Roman Centurion. He taught us all about his weapons, told us stories of being in the Roman army and even taught us how to use Roman shields to block attacks!
What was your favourite part of the day?
We just wanted to say a huge well done to all the children for the projects they created and a big thank you to all the family members that must have helped. It really shows how engaged the children are with their topic.
This week in Computing we went on a hunt around the school to find devices on our computer network. We visited the school server room and tried to research the jobs all the different devices did. Here is a helpful picture that explains what a computer network is:
What devices are on your computer network? Who is your ISP (internet service provider)? Are all your devices wireless or are some connected by an Ethernet cable?
Why not create a diagram of your home computer network and give it to your teacher for a bonus five passion dojos!
This week writer of the week goes to Poppy!
We were very impressed by her imaginative ideas when planning a story set in Roman Britain. We look forward to reading the story once she had written it!
This week’s writer of the week from Cedar class is Imogen for using lots of ambitious vocabulary to create a powerful soliloquy…
“Tonight is my final time to think about the upcoming battle. I will rip and tear the blue-faced, wild beasts and I must think carefully about how we use our mighty weapons. Should I be worried, with all our weapons? Worried or not, I will grind the blue-faced barbarians to dust! On the battle field, I will fight for my eagle, my army, my family and even myself.”
This half term we are learning about the Roman Invasion in Britain!
In Literacy we are finding out about the Celtic and Roman warriors and writing a soliloquy as if we are a soldier.
What can you remember from your research? Who do you find the most fearsome? How would you have felt on the eve of battle?
This week our writer of the week is Faith C for a brilliant start to her fantasy story!
In Science, we have been learning about the water cycle! We discovered the key processes that take place: evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. Can you remember which of these is the scientific name for rain (and snow!) ?
We even created our own water cycle to observe in the classroom:
Can you explain the water cycle to someone?
