Year Four’s Launch Trip to the National Justice Museum, Nottingham

Climbing on board the coaches, Year 4 couldn’t wait to see what the National Justice Museum had in store for them, and it certainly didn’t disappoint! Whilst there, the children morphed into Victorian Crime Stoppers, finding clues to get to the bottom of a terrible crime and identify the culprit. They were wowed by the museum’s original courtrooms and prison cells. During our visit, we met a variety of colourful, historical characters, each with different stories of justice to tell. A fantastic launch day was had by all!

Electricity!

The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning all about electricity this half term. They have worked very practically to learn about insulators and conductors and switches. The children then applied this knowledge in DT to making their own torches that could be used to help them in a natural disaster.

Natural Disasters Launch Day

In January, Year 4 launched their Natural Disasters theme in style. As part of the day, the children completed a 'Beat the Flood' challenge where they aimed to design and build a model of a flood-proof house using recyclable materials. Here are some of their results:
