Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

In Year 4 we follow the school’s mission statement by aiming to live, love and learn as Jesus taught us throughout everything we do in and out of class. We discussed and came up with our class rules at the start of the year.

Our School Rules:

At St. Mary’s, in everything we say and do we follow the teaching of Jesus.

  1. We always listen carefully so that we can learn and be safe.

  2. We work hard and persevere to achieve our best.

  3. We take responsibility for our actions.

  4. We show good manners by being kind and treating others as we would like to be treated.

  5. We value and care for our school and all the things in it.

  6. When lining up and walking round school, we always walk quietly.

Daily Routine

The day begins with a focused task as the children come into school. This may be a maths, literacy or R.E. task. Children must be ready to learn by 8:50 when the bell goes. Morning prayer is said at this point.

Literacy and numeracy are mostly learnt in the mornings with extra sessions on arithmetic, spellings and French. During the Spring and Summer terms, we also do gymnastics. The afternoons are mostly made up of foundation lessons. These include geography or history, P.E., computing, art, design and technology and music. R.E. is learnt on Wednesday afternoons and science is on Thursdays. We also learn recorders on Tuesdays.

Our class saint is Saint Therese of Lisieux.

See the presentation below for some interesting information about St Therese.

A part of our R.E. work and our beliefs in British Values, we also visit the Singers Hill Synagogue in Birmingham. This helps us learn about Jewish life and its traditions.

We visit Beaudesert each year where we try team building activities. These could include crate staking, archery, orienteering and even tree climbing.

Homework is given out every Friday. This includes a literacy and numeracy piece of work that is based on the week’s learning. Children are also expected to read every night and learn their times tables up to 12 x 12.
