DURHAM - Mr Browne

Coming soon to a classroom near you!


A new year means a new variety of exciting topics and curriculum areas to investigate!

Make sure that you and your parents find time, however much you can manage, to explore these topic areas so that you are prepared for January!


For topic, we will be looking back to the Victorians! We will be exploring key events in our nation's history. The reign of Queen Victoria, the industrial revolution and comparing the life of a modern child to that of one in the past.



Our text for term 3 is 'Street Child'. Make sure to research the story before January to understand more about the Victorians.


In mathematics, we will continue to explore and understand multiplication before delving into work on fractions.

If you wish to continue helping yourself or your child in Mathematics, please do continue working on building a strong, comprehensive knowledge of the times tables up to 12.


In science, we will discover how electricity works and what purpose it serves in our society.

Try keeping note of how many electric-powered objects you can spot over the winter holidays.

Star of the week

Our star of the week this week is Frankie! After showing incredible reasoning skills in her Mathematics, Frankie earned herself the title of Durham class' star of the week!




Reading with your child should take place every weeknight and should be signed into your child's reading record.

Make sure to read every week to be able to pick a prize from Mrs. Tuckell's mystery treat bag!



This week we worked hard to complete our discussion texts on whether or not Grannies should be banned in public places! After coming to our own conclusions, some of us are meaner to our Grannies than others, we have asked our own big question in order to prompt discussion before writing out our findings.



In Maths, we have been focusing on developing our understanding of multiplication and division. Knowing your times tables isn't enough for the superstars of Durham class! We now know WHY a multiplication sum works and how different numbers in different positions affect our sums! (Do you know what mathematical law I am referring to?)

We have been working hard to design amazing habitats that can protect local wildlife!
This Monday we finally used our local knowledge, alongside foraging skills, to create habitats for our local wildlife!
