Summer Week 1 Lauren and Estelle Class 4Th

This week, In maths we have been learning about Roman numerals. We learnt numbers up to 1000. As the week progressed, the numbers we were looking at got harder and harder. We learnt that 1 = I, 5 = V, X = 10, L=50, C=100, D=500, M=1000. Also that to get 4 and 9 you have to subtract 1 from 5 and 10.


In english, we have been learning about significant authors. What makes them significant and their styles. We have started to learn about biographies and autobiographies. A biography is when you are writing about someone else life where as an autobiography is when you write about yourself. They also have specific features.


In pe, we are practising for sports day and athletics. We practised running when we weren't ready to go. We have to sit on the floor and lay on our fronts. It was fun but hard! In pe today with Miss Patston, we did athletics practisng relays and curving while running.

- similies are when you compare two things using like and as  - Her eyes shone like diamonds

- metaphors are when you compare two things but saying they are using is and was - Her eyes were diamonds
