St Ambrose Barlow Catholic Primary School

Year 4

Our teachers in Year 4 are Miss Pelazza and Mrs Deneny and our teaching assistant is Mrs Drewry.

We link very closely with Year 3 and Year 5 to ensure consistency and to continue to move the children's learning on.

Our Catholic faith is very important to us and we strive to ensure that we live out our Mission Statement to the best of our ability every day. We have a different value and virtues focus each half term and we look to see how we can live out these values and virtues both in school and at home. Our altar is a very important part of our classroom, which we continually update to reflect the liturgical calendar throughout the year. Each day we have a different prayer leader to organise our prayer sessions. During these prayer sessions we often read out prayers that we have written ourselves. We also have the opportunity to prepare and lead a prayer service for the rest of the class.

In Year 4 we are able to be members of the school choir and have an important role supporting the Year 3 and Year 6 pupils as they prepare for the sacraments of the Eucharist and Confirmation.

During the year during PE lessons we work with a variety of sports coaches as well as our class teachers. In the Spring Term we attend swimming lessons.

Year 4 children have a specialist music teacher who comes in every week to teach the flute.

Visits to a Jewish Synagogue and Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery are just two of the trips to look forward to this year.
