Well done to our Mathletes of the Week!
Abdul, Erim and Nadiyah (for week beginning Monday, 22nd May)
Joanita, Antony and Santi (for week beginning Monday, 29th May)
Will you be joining them next week?
Remember, each week gives you the opportunity to practise your maths based on what we have studied the previous week. By playing the different activities you can gain additional points to become a Mathlete of the Week and use these to perfect your avatar.
This week, in English, we are comparing life in Ancient Rome and Ancient Britain as we investigate the Roman conquest of Britain in AD43. For this week’s 100 Word Challenge, use these 2 images to write a comparison between the two settings…are you a Roman coming to Britain or a Celt arriving in Ancient Rome? What are the main differences that jump out at you? How do these differences make you feel?
Add your 100 words as a comment to this post, rather than beginning a new post.
The most imaginative post will be selected by the class to represent the class in Achievement Assembly.
I Stared down across the shore in fury as dozens of boat hoarded through the rippling, rocky marine. I looked to my friend next to me Afon whispering,” Hey, lets ambush them.” He nodded,” Ok,” So we carefully but swiftly climbed down the ragged, craggy mountain as we gazed on the shore. They had reached our land. They all looked very peculiar especially the one who stood tall, he had leaves and flowers around his head. All us Celts attacked ferociously aiming for the same person… Julius Cesar…!
Poem about the Roman invasion:
Warships sliced through the black waves,
Britons will die early graves,
They are the sea’s warriors,
Ready to kill – leave no prisoners.
Steady they kill
Steady they slaughter,
Separating fathers from daughters.
Our land is stained with blood,
Bodies lay limp in the mud,
Romans will burn down villages,
Fright, terror and pillage.
My land is long forgotten,
Buried at the bottom,
Of brutal, bloody history.
Britain has a tail to tell,
About how the Romans came,
Death, war and fame…
