Today Year 4 presented a fantastic Harvest Assembly around the theme of the feeding the hungry, one of the seven corporal works of Mercy. The assembly echoed the words of Pope Francis and was inspired by CAFOD and their theme of Brightening up Harvest.
The children wore brightly coloured tops, sang a range of songs including: Cauliflower and cabbages, Feed the world (Do they know it's Harvest time?) and Thank you Lord for this new day. They also acted the the gospel story of feeding the 5000 (John 6:1-5), wrote Harvest promises, which you can read on our Catholicity page and read seven small prayers represented on five loaves of bread and two fish.
The children worked extremely hard on their performance and gave 100%, I am so proud of them as I am sure you are too. Thank you to those who were able to come and watch the performance and who donated at the end of the assembly.
I hope you all had a relaxing, entertaining and healthy summer holiday. The children are extremely excited about the coming year, as am I. A few key dates and bits of information for your attention:
In the classroom:
This year your children will be taught by myself ( Miss Ormsby) and have the support of Miss Dallimore in the mornings.
PE this term will be on a Monday and Thursday, please ensure all children have their kits. Also, please ensure all clothing is labelled and children have the correct PE kit, this should consist of: a white polo shirt, black joggers or shorts and black daps. Please also ensure all children have a water bottle with them.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and is to be returned the following Wednesday each week. It will follow the same format as shown below, however there will be a rotation between Mathematics, reading comprehension and a writing task.
I am in the process of booking some fantastic trips for Year 4 for the whole year. Once I have these dates arranged, I will let you know the cost. If you have any concerns about the costs of trips, please do come and see me and we can come to an arrangement. I do appreciate the costs of trips can be high but I wouldn’t ask you to pay if I didn’t think the trip was worth it.
Finally, thank you for your support and please if you would like to speak to me about anything concerning your child please do not hesitate to book an appointment with me through the school office.
