Yet another busy week for Year 4!

On Monday, following assembly, the children reflected on their second Catholic Social Teaching principle, ‘Dignity of the Worker’ and using this image:

they discussed concepts such as equality, fair access to resources, fair wages and working conditions. These concepts also brilliantly lent themselves to their Fair Trade fortnight learning completed with Mrs Moccia on Friday.

On Tuesday, the class joined Year 3 in an e-safety workshop, titled ‘One Good Choice’. The children solved 3 challenges through role play and discussions around the theme of group chats, online gaming and video sharing platforms. They reflected on strategies to keep themselves safe online and learnt how to access their privacy settings on different sites to limit their exposure to possible online harm.

On Wednesday, we joined Year 3 again to participate in Mass celebrating two early African saints; Sts Perpetua and Felicity. Huge well done and thank you to Emilia, Gabriella and Jack Flatley for their beautiful, expressive reading and the whole class’s singing which made the service even more special.

On Thursday, we celebrated World Book Day, which is always a highlight in our school calendar. After participating in assembly, where we joined  Michael Rosen on a ‘Bear Hunt’, we wrote acrostic poems in class describing our favourite book and its main characters and plot line. We also broke some book themed codes in Maths and listened to stories throughout the day.

Thank you so much for Mrs Beechey, Mr Stevens, Ms King (Connor’s grandmother) and Mrs Jeckells for coming to school (live or through the screen) and giving up your time to read to us! The children really enjoyed having you and listening to your stories; it has been a real treat!

The class also had the pleasure of listening to a story read by Mrs Carey who visited them on Thursday. Sharing a book with their former teacher was a lovely moment for Year 4.

Wishing you a lovely Mother’s Day weekend,

Ms Varga
