Public speaking by Ruby
As powerful as you are,
You may be scared.
But you should know,
Being yourself is better than being anyone else.
When you get up there on the stage,
And see a thousand eyes looking at you,
Getting down is not an option.
Because when you are up there,
You can’t get down,
Because otherwise you’re missing an opportunity to be great.
Hanifa for her creative writing that included fronted adverbial, inverted commas and brackets!
This week we have kicked off our new topic ‘Traders and Raiders’.For our memorable experience we built our Saxon ship to sail to Britain – ready to invade! In our Literacy lessons we are becoming reporters and creating news articles to explain this event!
What did you enjoy about your first week back?
Some members of Year 4 will be participating in a public speaking competition. In order to pick our teams we all participated in an engaging and exciting workshop that taught us what a good public speaker does!
Can you remember how to stand like a mighty oak?
As part of our Literacy, we have been learning about instruction texts. To get us in the spirit we followed a recipe to create Roman honey cakes. I thought they were delicious – did you?
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.
