Trip to Manchester Ice Village 2018

Year 4 had a fantastic time visiting the Ice Village in Manchester City Centre last Thursday. We were extremely impressed by the realistic sculptures which had been created out of ice. There were even several squirrels! 
Some of us had a turn sitting on the ice throne in the palace too!  We were all glad we wrapped up warm as the temperature was -10 degrees Celsius inside! 
Luckily, there was a delicious hot chocolate waiting for us outside to warm us up before our tram ride back to school. Here are some of the photographs of the fantastic time that we all had.


We found out that the Romans built their own aqueducts when they lived in Britain. They used them to transport water from different places. After looking at a few of their designs, we created our own aqueducts using cardboard, plastic bottles and other containers. We had to consider how the water would travel along them as well as ensuring they were waterproof! Here are our finished products.

4NM Exhibition

Dear Parents/ Carers,

4NM have been learning about how the UK has had an impact on the rest of the world through its
inventions. We have explored British inventors and written newspaper articles about their successes as well as designing and creating inventions of our own.

We would love you to come and explore our work and see our invention prototypes in 4NM’s
classroom from 2:30 to 3:15pm on Wednesday 23rd May 2018.

Year 4 Beegu Book Reviews and Pledges

Last half term there was a mysterious crash landing in the Enchanted Forest. After filing a police report and using their detective skills, the children concluded an alien had landed on our planet. This alien turned out to be Beegu. The children loved her book about her adventure on Earth and wrote book reviews based on the story. 4LD found Beegu's story so powerful they decided to write pledges based on the big ideas in the story. 4NM also wrote some reviews and pledges. Photographs of these reviews and pledges can be seen below:
