Welcome to Gauguin - Year 4!
In Gauguin, we certainly live, laugh and learn!
In our lovely classroom we have Miss Church as our teacher
and Mrs Griffiths as our super LSA.
Welcome back to the Summer term! This final term of Year 4 will see a continuation of the teamwork skills established throughout our learning to prepare children for Year 5, we will be fostering independence.
During this term, our key concepts for this term are RESPECT and then CHANGE. We will explore, discuss and evaluate our understanding of these concepts; later, we will consider these as fitting along with our subject learning.
For the first half term we will be exploring the Christian Trinity in out RE learning.
Last term, we thoroughly enjoyed our cricket coaching. This term Miss Church will lead our netball and gymnastics learning. We look forward to swimming after half term.
Year 4 have enjoyed a memorable 'Hook on' day to engage them in our new topic : Remarkable Rivers! Mermaids, fishermen and children dressed in blue descended on Gauguin's classroom. They heard a West African myth about river crocodiles and used ideas, colours and themes from this exciting tale to create traditional jewellery. Continuing the rivers focus, the children switched their location and immersed themselves in all things from the Brazilian Amazon - cue enthusiastic samba dancing (Miss Church tried to keep up), traditional headdresses and attempting to learn key Brazilian Portuguese phrases.
Exhilarated, enthused and exhausted -
Gauguin class are now gearing up for their River's trip.
