Year 4


Today we begin the 'O Happy Day' singing project.

we will have a visitor every Wednesday afternoon who will teach us some songs.

We will then perform at a concert at The Curve Theatre on Monday April 9th!!



Today the class helped to plant over 150 trees in the school grounds. A lady called Bethan told us all about trees in Assembly.

Every class planted some of the trees.

It was a little bit muddy!!




Today Miss Wilson introduced the class to the new book that we will read. It is called 'Sky Hawk' and is written by Gill Lewis.



Welcome back to school. I hope you are all ready for the busy term ahead!



Five Year 4 pupils represented the school at the Menphys Concert - along with the rest of the 18 person choir.

IItwas very exciting and an incredible experience: standing on the stage and looking at the audience was a little scary!!

The choir sang 'Two Thousand Years ago', a special song written by Mrs Peake, who worked as a teacher at Holy Cross a few years ago.

We were very well behaved and brilliant singers!




Today we finished reading this brilliant book. It really has captures the imagination of the Year 4 children!

As Jeremy wrote: " This book is about a chins rabbit called Edward. He is loved by people but is then taken from them.

He went on an amazing journey. He kept going even when it was hard times for him."

Libby-May adds: "This book is suitable for ages because it is a really good story, especially for those who like mysteries!



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.
