Welcome to Gauguin - Year 4!
In Gauguin, we are imagining the impossible,
never giving in and never giving up
and having faith bigger than our dreams.
In our calm and thoughtful classroom we have Mrs Price as our teacher
and Mrs Slater as our LSA, who will support the learning of all the children in the class.
The children in Year 4 will develop:
independence in their learning through the use of the Habits of Mind;
co-operation through the School Values of R.E.S.P.E.C.T;
and faith in who they are through the School's Christian Values
The children's enthusiasm for learning fills the classroom. We are focusing on resilience as we work through the Summer term, the children are always so motivated to accept any challenge set them. They are becoming confident in using the Habits of Mind to support them in their learning.
Our final concept for this year is ASPIRATIONS, through our class reader, study of Charles Kingsley in the run up to Founder's Day we will think about the things that make us what back a change. Our exit event for this concept will be thinking about the future and where the children may be in 20 or 30 years. Every morning and evening the children will share their personal aspirational comment to keep them focused on the best they can be.
Our R.E. unit this term is about the world that Jesus wanted and how that can help with our ASPIRATIONS. This is our focus for this half term. Hopefully with the warmer and drier weather we will be able to have worship outside as a whole school (socially distanced obviously).
Our Class concept reader is The Boy Underwater by Aaron Baron. This story has grabbed the attention of the class already, although the link with our concept ASPIRATIONS isn't clear yet. As with our other class readers we will share the story at the end of the day.
P.E. will be on swimming on a Monday and dance on a Thursday, as before children will be need to come in to school in their PE kits on those days.
The presentations that the children prepared and delivered as the exit point of last halfterm's concept JOURNEYS really demonstrated just how far the class have come this year. Their motivation, curiosity and confidence was exceptional, they all made excellent teachers of their specialist area. From the migration of swallows and wildebeest, to the challenges of reaching the highest peaks, the moon and the top of the world, to the determination of sports women, freedom fighter and noble peace prize winners, to the bravery of some just to survive, they were all truly inspirational journeys.

We would expect that if the child is not symptomatic that this work will be completed. If your child is poorly, we would ask you to make the judgement as to what you feel they can or can’t do.
