In my kagan group we have been learning about Wilson hat factory. On Monday 14 january at Wilson’s hat factory a major explosion occurred in which 13 people were killed, 12 were severely injured and 39 received minor injuries. The explosion occurred in the proofing department, which was totally destroyed ,and two planking shops were also damaged. It it understood that the explosion was caused by the ignition of vapour arising from methylated spirit that formed part of a process for dyeing hat bodies.The report of the explosion was heard for miles around and in the immediate location the Shock wave felt like an earthquake. Windows of nearby homes were shattered and some residents were thrown violently from there chairs.                                                               Skye kay

Grand Designs – Famous Landmarks in Manchester

We have been learning about Grand Designs, which includes famous landmarks around the world. I thought it would be interesting to find out what famous landmarks there are in my home city of Manchester.

I found that Manchester has many landmarks, a lot of them I have never even seen or visited !

Here are some of them –

Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Museum of Science and Industry, Imperial War Museum, Albert Square, Manchester Arena, Manchester Cathedral, Etihad Stadium, National Football Museum, Chinatown, Manchester Art Gallery, St Ann’s Square, Manchester Museum, Beetham Tower, Hat Works, Victoria Baths, Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester United Museum and Stadium, John Rylands Library and National Football Museum.

I have only visited the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester Arena, St Ann’s Square and Piccadilly Gardens. I would like to try and visit more of these landmarks in the future !

Our Vlogs all about Denton

In year 4 we have been exploring our local area. We enjoyed riding along on our virtual tour of Denton to find out all about the hot spots for history and entertainment.

We then worked in our Kagan groups to explore one of these brilliant land marks in further detail to create a vlog about these hidden gems.
