Year 4 - Frog
It's a wonderful world.
Frog Class are celebrating our ‘Wonderful World’ by looking at the amazing things God created in RE, and finding out about the globe as part of our whole-term learning journey.
To launch this new topic we researched and made totem poles. Here are some of the things we’ve found out:
"These are the symbol of a tribe, clan, family or individual. Our totem poles represent us; Frog Class."
“A totem pole is tall so everyone can see it and other tribes know who we are!"
"We researched totem poles from Native America and choose a spirit animal."
"A spirit animal is one you feel especially close to, or drawn to, or dream about like a bear, eagle, wolf or cat."
"In Native America, the spirit animal on totem acts as a guard for your spirit through your whole lifetime."
"The poles are normally carved from wood."
We’ve also been writing acrostic poems and were very proud to have these displayed to the whole school on the big screen during our Harvest Festival celebration.
Finally, we’ve been enjoying our class text “The Indian in the Cupboard” by Lynne Reid Banks. We are fascinated by the character of Little Bull, an Indian from the Iroquois tribe. We’re writing our own stories inspired by this text and will show them off on this website as soon as they are published, so watch this space!
