Spring 2 Newsletter

This half term, we will be developing our understanding of responsibility, how to be responsible and how we can be responsible in many different ways. Our focus question is:

Do I appreciate the value that sustainable resource use has on us and future generations?

We will be exploring this question by thinking about the following:

  • What are sustainable resources?

  • How we can ensure we look after resources for future generations?

  • How we can appreciate the value that resources provide and

  • What will happen if we don’t take any responsibility?

We will be exploring the theme of sustainability further through our exploration of the text: Where the Forest Meets the Sea.

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.
