The Railway Children

We have had an extremely busy week in Year 4 with lots of brilliant learning going on. We have been introduced to our class novel- The Railway Children- and have enjoyed reading it.

This has linked with our topic work in which we have been thinking about the differences between city and country life. We have empathised with the Railway Children and how hard it must have been to go from the riches of London life to ‘playing at being poor’ in a rat infested house in the middle of nowhere.

We cannot wait to read more of the story to see what the children get up to.

This week we also had our first French lesson with Mr Croser, practiced the tricky skill of column addition and tried to sell parts of the playground to mini beasts (copies of our work to follow).
