Love, learn and live in Christ!

School opens on Monday 26th February for Half Term 4!


Welcome to Year 4!

Our Teacher is Mrs Slack and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Rowlands

Our Spring Term!


Year 4 meet the chicks!

Year 4 had great fun finding out about different sea creatures at Blue Planet!

Year 4 had a visit from Spec Savers staff.  We found out about how to look after ourselves and our eyes. They donated luminous jackets to school to keep us safe. 

Our Theme for this Spring  is The life of Victorian Children!

We will be finding out about what life was like for children in Victorian times. 

 We will be focusing on History this half term.


Our RE theme is

Jesus the Teacher

We will learn that Jesus was born into a Jewish family and find out about the story of the presentation in the Temple. 
We will learn that Jesus attended synagogue as a child and as an adult read the Torah. We will learn that Jesus travelled about teaching people.

We will learn that Jesus came to show us the way to live, understand why Jesus used parables to teach people and know and understand some of the parables Jesus told.

We will have a chance to appreciate the relevance of the parables for us today and recognise that Lent gives us an opportunity to live as Jesus wants us to.

At home:
You could help your children by:
• read some well known parables, e.g. ‘The Sower’ and talk about what they mean for us
• go online to and complete the interactive activities.
