My first day in Year Four

Dear Diary,


Today was my first day in Year Four at BSN and it was awesome fun!

We started the day informally drawing ancient roman patterns while my teacher, Mrs. Shephard, took the register. Then we started our Maths lesson looking at Roman Numerals. We got to chose our preferred level of difficulty. 

Then we went onto our spelling activities where we were learning the letter sound  'au' and 'augh' as in /aw/ in caught, autumn and taught. 

Morning Numerals

Play time was fun! We could chose to play outside, in the play area or on the soccer pitch, relax in the atrium, snack in the cafeteria or rest in the library. 

After playtime, we began our topic earnestly on Romans by playing Capture the Flag, a traditional outdoor game where teams have a marker to capture located at the other team's base. This was our memorable experience and introduction to the idea of invasion, we likened the game to The Romans and Celts, a great start to an awesome topic! We learned that the Romans invaded Britain three times, setting up trade links and establishing power.


I then went off to playtime again, and had lunch; I ate beef stew and fresh vegetables in the lunch hall. There was yogurt and cake too for desert. I had the choice of either an Asian or European lunch. 

After lunch, we settled down to our temperature check then headed off to Art where we began to study and draw Ancient Roman coins.


After, we got to play again and I had a choice to take my snack in the cafeteria. 

After second play, I headed happily off to P.E with Mr. Scott; it was fantastic! Then I finished the day with Chinese language and culture.

I went home tired but happy and I cannot wait for tomorrow.
