Welcome to Year 4
Class Teacher: Miss Wainwright

Year Four welcome prayer
Thank you for the gift of education in every form.
As our children prepare to start a new year
may confidence be their foundation,
May grace be their guide and
may hope be their compass toward a bright future.
I pray they show empathy and understanding to others
and a heart full of love.
May they face each day with positivity
knowing that no matter
what comes their way,
they do not have to face it alone.
Year Four have planned and delivered their own Liturgical Prayer. They decided how they wanted to gather, what word they wanted to share, how they wanted to respond and what the mission was. The Prayer Leaders then shared a prayer they had written.
In English, Year Four have started to research what impact Romans had on Britain. Soon, they will create their own Roman Non-chronological reports.
In art, Year Four have created sculptures of Roman soldiers using wire and modroc. They have carefully considered the stance of their sculpture so that they can convey an action.
In English, Year Four have interviewed a Roman solider so that they can fully understand what life must've been like while battling on the front line!
Our topic is ‘People’ and we have explored what family means to us and that all families are different. We have discussed and explored scripture explaining how God is a loving parent and we are his children.
General school information
Year 4 key information
►Reading - Reading is at the heart of all our learning at Holy Family. To support this at home, please could all children ensure that they read their school reading book every night and that the planner is signed by an adult. Children will need to bring their reading book and planner back to school each day.
►Spellings - Every Monday, all children will receive a new spelling list based on spelling rules/patterns which will have been our focus in class. Please can all children learn the given spellings ready for our Friday spelling tests.
►Homework - All children will be given weekly English or maths homework. This is to be completed and returned to school as required.
►PE - PE will take place every Thursday and Friday. All children must have the correct school PE kit of white t-shirt and black/ Navy shorts and trainers. (Track suits may be worn as the weather turns colder). Please ensure that all children have trainers to enable them to fully participate in this key subject.
As always, thank you for your continued support.
Please don't hesitate to contact me at school if you have any questions or concerns.
