Year 4 Summer Term

Launched by a real life community pitch, our children start their summer term ready to make a difference as they embark on their first project ‘is water everywhere’.  This year, our Year 4 children will be raising money to install a tap at Jiffin Lower Basic School in The Gambia, a village school opened in 2017.  This tap will provide drinking water for the children and staff, whilst also enabling easier access for watering the school garden and cooking school lunches.  Through persuasive letters and I-movies, our children hope to reach out to our local community – raising awareness of worldwide water distribution whilst also encouraging reflection and appreciation.  A project filled to capacity with youth social action and community impact!  From the River Gambia to the ancient banks of the Nile, our children will soon find themselves deep in the Valley of the Kings as they explore ‘is it ever right to take something that doesn’t belong to you’.  Inspired by the fascinating artefacts on exhibition at the British Museum, our children will create their very own Egyptian tomb, a showcase of their art and research - filled with, in the words of Howard Carter, “wonderful things”.
