St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Our Ethos Statement for this week 20th November is: I think before I make choices that affect my health!


Welcome to Year 4!

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

Our Theme for this half term is Blue Abyss!

We will be finding out about life under the sea.  We will also be learning about oceans around the world.

 We will be focusing on Geography, Science and Art.


We have looked at how to look after our teeth. We used discolouration tablets to show where we needed to clean our teeth well!


Children in Need fun!

Year 4 cheered on Harry Gration and Paul Hudson with their fundraising efforts!

Our RE theme is

Trust in God

We will learn about Jesus’ teaching and the importance of trusting in him. We will learn that it is not always easy to trust in God (e.g. Zechariah).

We will learn about the promise God made to Mary through the angel Gabriel and
learn how Joseph put his trust in God when the angel appeared to him.

We will have a chance to deepen their awareness of God’s love for us and know that he asks us to trust in him. We will reflect on the times it is difficult to trust and on the importance of keeping promises.
