Welcome to our class page!

In Term 5, our history enquiry question is: 

What was life like in Victorian Britain?

Victorian Britain was a significant period of huge change in industry and technology, with amazing inventions that we still use today. But it was also a time of shocking divisions between rich and poor, when the population more than doubled and many people moved from the countryside to the towns in search of work in the new factories. We investigate what life was like in Victorian Britain.

Maths 

Keep practising your times tables using TTRS. You need to be able to quickly recall your facts up to 12 x 12 and their corresponding division facts.

Year 4 children will need to complete the Multiplication Tables Check so regularly practicing 'Soundcheck' on TTRS will really help you!

Reading

It's really important to read everyday to develop fluency and intonation. Please remember to record your daily reading in your reading diary - if you complete 5 reads in a row you get to have afternoon tea with Mr Getty!

This term our Book Club text is The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson.
