This year we are particularly praying for peace.
The Early Christians
In this topic the children will learn about who the early Christians were. They will explore what being a Christian means to them and investigate those who show their Christian beliefs through actions and words. Children will recognise how some bible stories such as Pentecost effect our beliefs and actions.

This half term, we will be using the text, 'Wisp' by Zana Frallion.
This text tells the story of a young refugee child who is born into a world of tents and fences. He has known no other life than this.
Then the Wisp arrives, everyone who holds it finds their memories reawakened and their hopes of freedom reborn.

We were very excited for our first lesson in wider opportunities.
We all learnt our first note and learnt some musical vocabulary such as tempo, pitch, crescendo and beat. We also learnt to identify some rhythms using 'tea' 'coffee' to help us count the beats.
Year 4 are very enthusiastic and can't wait for their next lesson!
