Welcome to year 4’s class page!
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.
We’ve had a BRILLIANT start to the year.
We’ve already been working hard on many exciting topics and developing our skills and knowledge through interesting activities. Take a look through our photographs to see our learning journey so far.
· We have been reading a variety of Fairy Tales. Our favourite texts have been the ‘Twisted Tales’ such as Shrek and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. We have really enjoyed learning about the features of classic stories and then twisting them to make modern versions told from a different perspective.
· 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 using increasingly large numbers, practising our partitioning skills, ordering numbers, working with negatives and we’ve even been cracking codes using Roman Numerals!
Religious Education –
· This term we have been looking at ‘FAMILY’. We have studied our own family trees as well as Jesus’ human family. We have also been learning about significant figures from the Bible, including Saint Francis of Assisi, Ruth and Abraham. We have really enjoyed this topic and have a new appreciation for the people around us and their importance in our lives.
The Wider Curriculum –
· History - Our topic this term has been the THE ROMANS. We have learned EVERYTHING about them: Who they were, where they came from, how they lived and even their religious beliefs!
Autumn Half Term
After having a VERY good half term it is time for a much needed break! Thank you for all of your hard work over the last few weeks, you have started the year REALLY WELL! Have a lovely week off, and I will see you all back refreshed and ready to learn just in time for a spoooooky Halloween on Tuesday 30th October.
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks back at school after the half term break and it isn’t going to calm down! This is going to be an EXTREMLEY busy time at St. Josephs, but it will also be one packed with fun as the countdown to CHRISTMAS begins!
