Today, we have continued our History work about the Romans by researching who lived in Britain before they invaded. The children worked in teams to research one aspect of Celtic life before sharing their findings with the rest of the class. Then they played a board game called Crazy Celts where they had to answer questions to further their knowledge. Finally, the class designed Mind Maps to show what they had learnt about the Celts. What a busy afternoon!
As part of our Science work, we have been investigating gases. Mr Wilcock showed us how gases fill the space they are in and what happens to a flame when oxygen runs out. After that, we made predictions and careful observations of what happens when you drop raisins into lemonade. Who thinks they can explain what they saw?
Year 4 had a brilliant time at the Street Velodrome today! I am so proud of all the class-they displayed fantastic behaviour and were an absolute credit to Hindsford. Every member of the class impressed with their determination to succeed at a new challenge and a few discovered talents they didn’t know they had! A special mention has to go to Olivia who conquered her fears and managed to have a go at riding a bike, even though she was very frightened. Mind you, she did have a little help from Shanaze Reade ( Team GB Olympic Gold Medallist!!!) who popped down to help us out and who gave Olivia a private lesson 😃! Well done, Year 4!!!!

Year 4 have been learning about classic poems by Walter de la Mare. We have focused on the language in the poem, ‘The Traveller’ and have been learning parts of the poem to perform as a group. Halle Morris has put in an extra effort and has learnt the entire poem off by heart. Well done, Halle! Click play above to hear her perform!
