2017 Autumn I Term

What a great start to Year 4 all the children in the class have made. We had a wonderful Roald Dahl Day, where we learnt about his famous novels. We started the school year wonderfully for everyone in church with our welcome Mass. We have also enjoyed learning about the Jewish Festival of Sukkot. The 4th October is always important to our school - when we celebrate the Feast Day of our Saint - St. Francis of Assisi. We celebrated Mass in church, learnt a lot about his life and enjoyed buns and juice in the afternoon! We have all learnt lots from the church tour Fr. Michael gave our class, focusing on the sacraments.
This term we have been learning about ancient Egypt. We have found out about the geography of Egypt and the importance of the River Nile. We have looked at timelines for the period and learnt about the mummification process. We have learnt lots about the times by reading our class novel, 'Ma'at's Feather' and writing our own historical stories. We look forward to learning more about this period next half-term and visiting Leeds City Museum for a workshop all about this historical time.
We also had a super Geography themed week in school,particularly focusing on our class topic of rivers. We enjoyed the food and flag day - making flags from the countries we are from and sharing food.


A warm welcome to all parents and children in Year 4. 

This year, supporting your child’s learning will be Mrs Broughton, Mrs Ibrahim, Miss O'Hara and Mrs Ali.
