A busy week in P4…


What a hard-working bunch we’ve been this week! It all started with Queen Victoria…

We carried out some internet research about her in the ICT suite and recorded our notes onto a Word document…

Then, we looked at Queen Victoria’s reign (the time that she was Queen) and placed all the important things that happened on a human timeline…

After that, we learned a bit more about Queen Victoria. Some people have said that she was an unhappy, or even grumpy, Queen and we decided to investigate whether or not this was true. We looked at lots of pictures and things that people said about her in the past…

We had to decide if we believed that Queen Victoria was unhappy, sad or grumpy by looking at the evidence. We had to be able to justify what we said. We decided that:

  • She never smiled in her portraits because she had to pose for them and wouldn’t have been able to smile that long!
  • She didn’t smile often in photos because it wasn’t fashionable to do that in Victorian times.
  • She wasn’t grumpy because many people, including her own granddaughter, talked about how funny she could be.
  • She was sad at times because her husband died and she missed him very much.

On top of all that, we’ve been developing our mental strategies for addition and subtraction. We took part in a maths carousel lesson that allowed us to practise all our strategies. We’re getting really good at it!

Well done P4!!
