The children have been turning their hands at being Art curators here at Northwood Primary!
Our new addition to our reception area is the 'Mini Museum' which is on loan from Kirkby Gallery and Prescot Museum. The children are using it as an exhibition space to showcase their beautiful artwork and superb pieces of writing.
Everything on display is linked to the children's Power of Reading theme. On display at the moment is Year 3's fantastic Egyptian exhibition.
On your next visit to reception, feel free to take a look and browse through 'Northwood's Mini Museum Book' which documents how the children made the work exhibited.
Aruba Class Trip to the Museum
Aruba class went on a trip to the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry on Wednesday 13th May. They had a great day out and two members of the class were chosen to get up and join in one of the shows they went to see. They investigated the ‘Air and Space Hall’, the ‘Power Hall’, and the ‘Great Western Warehouse’. There was also a fabulous floor where you could complete lots of exciting experiments and even make a skeleton appear if you pedalled fast enough! The weather was lovely and we sat outside and ate our lunch. They have taken lots of great photos and uploaded them onto our webpage if you would like to see how much fun they had!
Year 1 - The Great Fire of London
This half term Year 1 have been learning about The Great Fire of London. Using the iPads the children researched the topic. Using an app called Book Creator the children were then able to make their own book about the Great Fire of London. They added pictures and sound, as well as a short piece of text.
Year 5 - Settlements Popplet
Mind map made using the Popplet app on the iPad at the beginning of a topic on settlements.
Year 5 - Anglo Saxon Houses
We have been creating Anglo Saxon houses in class as part of our History project
Roman Workshop – Year 4
The children in Year 4 had a brilliant day learning lots of information about The Romans.
They were visited by a Roman Centurion in full costume who gave an insight into what it was like to live during the time of the Roman Empire for both Romans and Celts.
The children handled artefacts which were 2000years old and even learnt how to defend themselves as part of a reconstructed battle between the Romans and the Celts, on the playground.
It was a fabulous way to start our topic on The Romans.
