Welcome to our class page!
Class Teacher: Mr Cottrill
Teaching Assistants: Mr Young
In Year 4, we hope our children will continue to develop increased independence. The children are encouraged to take on greater responsibility, gain confidence and set themselves new challenges.
P.E: We have Tag Rugby on a Monday afternoon and basketball on a Wednesday afternoon, so don't forget your PE Kit!
Homework: Set on a Friday and to be handed in on the following Wednesday. This will consist of a set piece of work on MyMaths or a worksheet and an English activity sheet.
Spellings: Test on a Thursday with a new set of words given on the Friday. Spellings will be taught in class and need to be practised at home.
Times tables: Test takes place on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Reading: The children will have a home reading book in addition to a library book (remember to bring both books into school). Please try to listen to your child read daily and sign their reading record as this will be checked weekly.
Our Class Saint: Mother Teresa of Calcutta
This year our classes have new class saints. Our saint is Mother Teresa of Calcultta. Mother Teresa was the founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity, which is a Roman Catholic congregation of women who were dedicated to helping poor people. She is thought of as one of the 20th Century's greatest humanitarians. Mother Teresa was canonized as Saint Teresa of Calcutta in 2016.
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” – Mother Teresa
Saint Teresa of Calcutta, Jesus called you to bring the light of His love to those who live in darkness.
By tender, loving care for the poorest and the neediest, you became the sign of God’s presence,
His love and compassion in the midst of suffering and pain.
Following your example, help us to recognise the face of Jesus in our suffering brothers and sisters
and to serve Him with humility and joy.
Teach us to be the carriers of God’s tender love and mercy.
