Welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 have enjoyed reading ‘The Bolds to the Rescue’ by Julian Clary!
It tells the story of a family of hyenas who are living as humans
They have become legendary in the animal kingdom. Soon their house is full of visitors hoping to learn how to pass as humans too.
If your child has enjoyed this book, why not read the others in this series:
- The Bolds
- The Bolds on Holiday
Year 4’s topic for Autumn 1 has been ‘Bones’. They have learned all about skeletons, including the skeleton of Richard II which was found in a Leicester Car Park! To finish this topic, we had a great trip to the Richard III Visitor Centre where we learned all about this famous King of England. We also spent some time in Leicester Cathedral, where we saw Richard III’s tomb.
It was a very enjoyable and busy day – a fantastic end to this topic!
It was a very exciting day today. The whole school celebrated the school’s Golden Jubilee at a Mass led by Bishop Patrick McKinney. We celebrated 50 years of being sited on Stonesby Avenue. However, we also know that we have a ‘secret’ anniversary: Holy Cross School was originally founded in 1817 – 200 years ago!
Bishop Patrick celebrated Mass with us; he even met our School Council over lunch! Thank you Bishop Patrick!
Thank you for behaving so beautifully at Holy Cross Church today. We celebrated our school’s feast day at a special Mass. We also received our class saint: St Martin de Porres.
Welcome to the new Year 4 class! I hope that you will enjoy learning lots of new things this year. Miss Wilson is the Year 4 class teacher: she loves books, football and the colour purple. She is supported by several teaching assistants: Miss Collard, Mrs Johnston, Mrs Addison and Mrs Mahmood.
Here you will find regular updates of life in Year 4 this year.
