Welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 is a fantastic year for the children and the teachers. Children in this age group have begun to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding and this allows for the learning to be more in depth as children explore their own interests and question the world around them.
It is a crucial time to build on forming friendships and being able to cooperate and be respectful of others’ opinions, whilst at the same time, developing their own ideas and becoming confident when expressing them.
In Year 4 at Ambrosoli International School, the children will build on their prior knowledge to push their learning forward. IPC units are integrated with English and Maths as much as possible to provide meaningful learning opportunities that cover different areas, cultures and aspects of the world.
Shandy Robbins year 4 teacher
Welcome to Yr. 4 Mburo! I’m Tr. Shandy, and I have served as a teacher at Ambrosoli since 2015. I grew up in Huntington Beach, California (U.S.A.), where fashion design, art, sports, teaching, and going to the beach consumed most of my time. In college, I attended the University of Kansas on a full basketball scholarship, and played in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen. I also earned an Associate’s degree in Fashion Design at FIDM in Los Angeles, as well as an Elementary Education Teaching Certification at Vanguard University. Along with teaching several years at the primary level, both public and private, I have also worked in the fields of property management and fashion design. For the past 5 summers, I’ve served, mentored, and sponsored youth in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania through The Shandy Africa Project, and hope to continue forward with it in the years to come.
Louise Stout – KS2 Coordinator/ Y4 Sipi Teacher
Hi! I’m Louise and I have part of Ambrosoli International School since 2015.
I live in Kampala with my husband and my two dogs and we love taking road trips around Uganda and further afield to explore this wonderful continent. We are originally from Scotland and have also lived in Japan and Ethiopia. I graduated with a BSc. Hons in Environmental Biology and worked in various positions in both retail and science. It was whilst I was teaching English in Japan that I discovered my love for working with children. I completed my PGDE at the University of Edinburgh in 2009 and haven’t looked back since.
Liz Bazira – Y4 Sipi Learning Assistant
Hell . My name is Elizabeth Kizza Bazira and I am a Ugandan. I have worked in Ambrosoli for some time now as a learning assistant and learning so much from people and from students as well is fun. I enjoy working with children here in this school and I am glad to be a part of the Year 4 sipi team. You’re never too old to learn is my motto, and especially the learning of other people’s experience. All the good things we should share and learn from it!
One of my passions is playing basketball. I am currently in a ladies basketball club called A1 Challenge. This year I look forward to coaching the under 11 Girls basketball team here at Ambrosoli!
