Love, learn and live in Christ!

Our Ethos Question this w/b 18th June: Do I recognise and accept that while we have things in common, we are also different?


Welcome to Year 4!

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

Our Spring Term!

We had a brilliant day at Ogden Water.  We did a mini beast hunt, pond dipping and then became Native Americans in the afternoon!

As part of our theme we had an American Lunch!  All the children enjoyed the food especially the big cookies!

We had a great time in our Yoga session as part of our Better Living Day!

Year 4 have really enjoyed working with the sports coach in the Spring term developing their gymnastic skills.

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

We learnt lots of facts in our road safety training.

The Summer Term!


Our Theme for this half term will  be The Romans!

We will be finding out about what life was like for Roman soldiers. 

 We will be focusing on History and DT this half term! 

Our RE theme is

Belonging to the Church

We will learn that we all belong to a community. We will learn about different types of community and know what it means to belong to a community. We will develop our understanding of what it means to belong to community of the Church and know that people become a member of the Church through Baptism. The children will be introduced to the Creed – a
statement of the Catholic faith and learn about the structure of the Church’s
liturgical year.

At Home:
You could help your children by:
• helping them with their parish project
• visiting

 We became song writers!  We listened to a song about bullying and then wrote our own version. We then performed our songs to each other!
