Here at St. Joseph’s we aim to ‘have life and have it to the full’ in all areas of life at school.
We have a very busy year ahead of us. Year Four is going to be filled with hard work and lots of high expectations, however this will also be a very exciting year for us at St. Joseph's with lot’s to look forward to and enjoy.
We will be filling this page with our class news, pictures of all our learning fun, things to come later in the year and so much more. Do you have any wonderful ideas for this page? Why not let me know and we’ll keep adding our ideas.
Miss Foster and Mrs Dargon
Homework is VERY important to us at St Josephs!
· Spellings must be practised and learned ready for testing on Wednesdays.
· Choose one task from the homework grid each week and bring the book to school each Wednesday, this will be returned to the children on a Friday.
· Reading every night is essential… and don’t forget to get your reading record signed!
o Then take an Accelerated Reader Test and see for yourself how much you’ve learned from the book!
· Swimming will take place on Monday afternoons. Don’t forget your swim kit; a towel, a swimming cap. trunks for boys and a swimming costume for girls (not a two piece)
· P.E. lessons are on Wednesday afternoons. You will need; a red polo shirt, black shorts (no branding) and black pumps.
Every Friday we gather to celebrate children’s achievements across the school. Here are our successes so far.

We’ve had an EXCELLENT start to the year.
We’ve already been working hard on many exciting topics and developing our skills and knowledge through interesting activities. We’ve been writing, acting, reading and counting. But that isn’t all; take a look through our photographs to see our learning journey so far.
· We have also been reading Alfred Noyes’ ‘The Highwayman’ this is a classic narrative poem. It tells the story of a highwayman and his lover Bess. They often meet in secret until one night when Tim the Ostler spots them. He alerts King George’s men and they come to capture the thief. We have really enjoyed learning about this poem of love, jealousy and death. It has inspired us to create newspaper reports, diary entries and our own poetic endings to this ghostly tale.
· We’ve been working EXTREMLY HARD in our math’s lessons, for there have been loads of new things to learn and plenty of work to recap! This term we are studying numbers and the number system. We have been adding and subtracting with increasingly large numbers, practising our partitioning skills, ordering numbers, working with negatives and we’ve even been cracking codes using Roman Numerals!
