Welcome to Benjamin Zephaniah Class page!
We are confident, curious and creative people who show care and consideration for all. We value being part of the school community and work collaboratively together.
In our class we focus on building our knowledge and skills to become independent learners and we always try our best at everything we do. We also enjoy exploring new topics, taking on new challenges and going on new adventures.
We are excited about starting our learning journey at the Junior school and look forward to sharing this with you.
This week in Benjamin Zephaniah class we have been learning about persuasive writing and all it’s techniques e.g emotive language .
In maths we have been revising place value and today we were learning about Roman Numerals.
In our topic work we have created our own Roman shields and learnt lots about the life of a Roman soldier.
Today we have been practicing various Roman army formations including the tortoise. We have had to be very collaborative and show strong cohesion.

|This week in Benjamin Zephaniah we wrote a newspaper article about a young slave saving a baby from a fire. This was based on the story we are reading in english called ‘Roman Diary The journal of Iliona’. In maths we we have been focusing on place value and ordering numbers, we even played a game on the Chromebook’s which was very exciting. In topic we were looking at the Roman empire, it’s many emperors and how they invaded England. In guided reading we were looking at Horrible Histories rotten Romans. In handwriting we were joining up no ascender or descender words on our whiteboards to practice flow. In P.E we were throwing and catching with control. Congratulations to our new school council members Emily and Maiya. |

In English this week we have been working on writing really good descriptive sentences and have learnt lots of new adjectives to help us describe things. In maths we have been looking at numbers up to 1000 and concentrating on place value. We enjoyed having a celtic themed day on Tuesday where we did lots of learning outside (including our English and maths) In the afternoon we started to make our own iron age round, had a go at weaving, made a clay and even cooked some celtic style bread on the campfire.
