Salford Museum

This half term, Year 4 have been studying the monarchy from 1066 - present day. For our unique experience we went to Salford Museum to have a look at the Victorian art gallery, especially the painting showing Queen Victoria's visit to Peel Park Salford in 1851. We found out that all the local school children went to see the Queen. After having a discussion about the picture, where we talked about what we would have been able to see, hear, smell and the feelings the children would have had, we then stated to create our own version of the painting.

We all drew a person from the crowd and then we were allocated other parts of the picture to recreate. We had a lovely morning and we are very proud of our masterpiece which is now on display in our classroom. 



Seven Acres Nature Reserve

This week, Year 4 went on our trip to Severn Acres Nature Reserve. We spent the day looking at different habitats around the reserve. We started by looking at a classification key and working out what animal our guide was thinking of by asking relevant questions. We then went and found out what animals were in the river. We used nets to get animals out and put them into trays to take a closer look. In the afternoon, we went on a woodland walk where we identified trees and made hedgehog houses. Finally, we went to the meadow where we had a running race to collect wool worms. We had a fantastic day outdoors even if it was a little cold.​


Ordsall Hall

This week we had an amazing day at Ordsall Hall. We started the day learning about a Tudor wedding feast; some of us got to dress up as the guests at the wedding, while the rest of us had to be the servants.

We then split into two groups, half of us went into the kitchen and learnt about all the food that was served at a feast.  We tried grinding the herbs and spices to make a sauce in order to flavour the food. It was hard work. We then went upstairs to see where the servants slept. It wasn't a nice place; they didn't even have a bed! 

The other half went into the star chamber, named because there were gold stars on the ceiling. We learnt about the armour that was worn in battle. We also learnt how the rich Tudors went to the toilet! In the ladies bedroom, we made perfume bags that were used to cure diseases and prevent the ladies from smelling. 

We ended the day joining in with different Tudor dances. ​

We Made Soup

his week Year 4 have been making pottage, a vegetable soup made in the Tudor period. First, we tried a variety of soups on the market and decided on our favourite. We then chose from a selection of vegetables the ones we wanted in our soup. We then had to peel and cut the vegetables before putting them in a pan with water and stock to simmer. After break we got to taste our creations, they were all delicious.
