Giggenbach

Giggenbach Class - Year 4 
Ellen Giggenbach is a contemporary artist from New Zealand who brings together bright colours and collages to produce engaging art. She loves to use simple shapes with bright colours to give her art a 'fun' and 'friendly' feel whilst making it attractive.
Ms Dost and Ms Youngman have chosen Ellen Giggenbach for their class artist as they feel the children will enjoy producing art in this style and it will give them the opportunity to explore artistic techniques through collages.

Homework
 
Children will be given a list of Spellings every Monday which need to be learnt for the following Monday.
On Mondays the homework book is sent home. One week the work will be based on Literacy or Phonics and the following week the focus will be Maths.
From January 2017 the children will also take home a “KIRFs”  (Key Instant Recall Facts) sheet each half term to be learnt.
Reading is also very important. We encourage children to read with an adult as often as possible. We will be sending home a new book on a weekly basis. Please sign the reading record when you read with your child/children.
 
Library
 
We have a shared library with many interesting books. Children are encouraged to use it.
 
 
PE
 
Physical Education takes place twice a week. It is very important that PE kits are kept in school at all times. Please mark each item clearly - that includes plimsolls as it can quite difficult for your child to find them when they are all changing at once.
