Class 10 have really enjoyed investigating circuits. This week we looked at conductors and tested various materials on our circuit to see if the bulb would still light.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Class 9 and 10 are involved in a very exciting project with The Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery in Nottingham City Centre.
To begin the project, Year 4 children will visit the Gallery on the morning of Monday 6th November.
We will leave The Milford Academy and catch a tram into town. At the Gallery, we will view the exhibition and participate in workshops with Artists. The Gallery visit will take place between 10.00 and 12.00. Lunch will be eaten at the Gallery then we will return to school. Everyone will need a packed lunch for that day. Children entitled to a free school meal will be given a lunch bag from school.
The Gallery exhibition is called, ’States of America’ and contains photography from the Civil Rights Movement to the Reagan Era. There are almost 250 photographs by artists from across the United States. The images show us the changes that were happening over the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s including the struggle for civil rights and equality. The images will be used to support English, storytelling and social, moral and cultural learning.
Following the Gallery visit, there will be two workshops in school with project artists who will develop ideas from the exhibition with the children. Children will then develop a collection of their own Art work.
The project will end in an exhibition of the children’s work at the Nottingham Contemporary Gallery .The exhibition will take place on the weekend of January 18th – 21st. Parents are invited to enjoy the exhibition.
We are all very excited about the project. It is an amazing opportunity for the children to explore ideas, get creative, discuss issues, develop confidence and enjoy the experience of exhibiting their work!

Congratulations to all the children who have reached the very top of the behaviour chart in Class 10. We have had lots of children ending the day on the planet! Keep this up!
A reminder that the Year 4 Meet the Teacher meeting is on Wednesday 20th September straight after school in Class 9.
We look forward to seeing you there.
