We've made it! What a fabulous year it has been, 4B. Thank you SO much, not only to mums and dads but to you all as well, for all of your kind words and gifts these past few days.

Now, enjoy your summer holidays. You have most certainly earned it!

#### 08/06/18

What a busy first week back! You have all been fab, and have worked so hard (even though we were slightly chatty on our first day back!) We have moved on to look at biographies in English now. So far, you have been looking at examples of biographies and the features they include. You have also created your own Roman character to write your biography on. We had lots of fun making our characters out of fimo, which have now been baked and are ready to use!

In Maths, we have been recapping on a few things. We started the week with statistics, and solving problems with data. We then moved on to symmetry and completing symmetrical patterns using a mirror line, and finally ended the week on answering word problems which had fractions in them.

See you on Monday,

A reminder that hats should be washed and returned to school tomorrow, for the rain :(

## Literacy

We are thoroughly enjoying our historical fiction story, 'Across the Roman Wall'. It's amazing how much we can learn about that time from a fiction novel. The protagonists from the story have been betrayed and are now on their way to be sold as slaves! Will they be able to escape? Will Lucius learn to be less arrogant? Will a romance blossom? We'll have to read on this week to find out.

## Numeracy

Last week, we recapped how to find perimeter and even began using some simple algebraic expressions. This week we'll continue to reason with perimeter before moving on to area which is a new concept for year 4!

## History

We have learnt the myth of how Rome began by reading the story of Romulus and Remus and placing the Romen era on a timeline. Following on from our Celt vs Roman battle, we compared the lives of people living in Britain at the time and the way of life of the Romans. This week we'll focus on exploring how the Roman Empire grew and became so powerful!

## Science

In science, we have investigated how sound is made with vibrations and how volume can be altered depending on the strength of those vibrations. This week, we'll explore how sound is affected at different distances.

Have a great weekend!

## Welcome Back!

I hope you all had a fantastic Easter break and are ready for our new topic....

### The Roman Invasion of Britain

It was all work, work, work for me as I went to see where it all began...

I hope you're all ready to kick start the topic with our battle re-enactment of the Romans Vs The Celts on Tuesday!

### Literacy

In literacy, we are returning to fiction with a historical novel to immerse ourselves in Roman Britain.

### Numeracy

In numeracy this week, we'll be converting all things measured. From mm, cm, m and km, to g and kg and ml an l!

### Science

Our new science unit is all about sound

### Times tables

I have also found the time to challenge myself on Times Table Rock Stars! I am currently in 10th place on the school leader board...c'mon 4B, see if you can beat me! Only one of you is at the moment!

See you tomorrow
