Pic Collage Mosi 2

Eastgate have had an incredibly exciting week!

On Wednesday, the children had a super fun time at MOSI – The Museum of Industry and Science, in Manchester – with Northgate. The children took a step back in time inside the Power Hall, where they looked at working engines and locomotives from the past. They also got to see artefacts, such as old air and road transport, inside the Air and Space Hall, before going into the Great Western Warehouse to become real life science experimenters! They all had a great time, and it was wonderful to see how fascinated they were by how times have changed!

Having visited MOSI the day before, this gave the children the perfect opportunity to become news editors themselves and write a newspaper article all about MOSI! The children learnt all about the key features of a newspaper article, such as the headline, standfirst, lead and body, before putting into practise their new editorial skills!    


In maths this week the children have been trying super hard to solve 2 step addition and subtraction problems. They learnt about how to read and understand the problems and that it is okay to show your workings out, in true mathematician style! We also talked a lot by trial and error, and how making mistakes is proof we are learning!

The children are also continuing to thoroughly enjoy their Andy Warhol art lessons with Miss Walker – this week they have been printing!

Well done Eastgate! Have a lovely weekend.

The Year 4 Team.
