Class 4

Welcome to Class 4!


Hello and welcome to Class 4!

My name is Miss Alderson and I am the class teacher. Mr Blundell and Miss Naz are our learning support assistants.
Blackburn with Darwen Wider Opportunities Music Service
Class 4 is very fortunate to have lessons provided by the Blackburn with Darwen wider opportunities Music Service. Each term, we learn to play a musical instrument and hold an end of term performance to show everyone what we have learnt! During the autumn term, we will be learning to play the ukuleles.
P.E. lessons are on Thursdays and Fridays. Your child will need a full PE kit (white t-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps). Please make sure this is in school for all of the half term.

Home reading
Please bring these in everyday with the reading record signed. We want to make reading enjoyable and involve your child in this experience.
Spellings will be given out each Monday to be tested the following Monday. Please practice these. Times tables homework will be given out on a Wednesday. This is to be handed in the following Monday. 

By the end of Year 4 children are expected to know all their times tables up to 12 x 12. It would be great if they could practice them at home! Please encourage your child to have a look at the times tables section and try out the games and activities on there.
If you have any questions regarding the curriculum your child is being taught, please contact school.
At Our Lady's we are always pleased to meet our parents. I will be available to talk to you any day before 8.45 and after school. If you would like me to ring you, please leave a message at the school office.

Year 4 have been very busy writing their own version of the Pied Piper story using their story mountains to help them.

In Golden time we have been decorating ginger bread men. This was a reward for our amazing behaviour this week in PE.

Year 4 were using drama to understand the thoughts and feelings and speech of the characters in their new stories.

Our class service was about 'being chosen.' The focus of this was to read the story of 'the calls of the fisherman.' Think about why God chooses us and how does this make us fell.

In RE we celebrated the end of the topic with a Prayer Service. We talked about family and what it means to be part of Gods family.

In music Year 4 are learning to play the Ukulele. We have learnt the Ukulele song and also learnt how to keep a beat and how to do the thumb brush strum!
