A huge welcome to Class 4F 2018-2019
 
Our class teacher is Miss. Finnegan and our Classroom Assistant is Mrs. Wilkinson. We also have Mr. Jones who will be training with us this year. 
 
We are extremely busy and working very hard right now, here you can see some of the fantastic things we have done so far. 
 
Our P.E day is Monday and our Dance will take place on Fridays so P.E kits should remain in school all week. 
 
Homework books will be given out each Monday and completed Homework should be returned every Friday. 
Please help children to prepare for their Spelling and Tables tests each week by using the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method and completing a Speed and Accuracy Test. 
 
As part of our Homework policy, Home Reading is required each night. Please spend some time listening to your child read. Signing your child's Reading Record is an indication of reading that has taken place at home. 
 
Please feel free to come and chat to us about any concerns or questions that you may have.
Thank you
 
Miss Finnegan and Mrs. Wilkinson

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Mr Jones and I am a trainee teacher who will be working in Miss Finnegan’s class (4F).

I have previously taught English in South Korea for over 3 years as part of an after school programme for Korean children. This experience has enabled me to gain experience and confirm the fact that I would like to have a positive impact on the learning experience of children. In terms of interests, I enjoy playing squash and following St Helens RLFC and Everton FC. I look forward to speaking with you in the future.

Yours Faithfully,

 

Mr Jones

Science Week - Electricity 
 
Deciding which materials we think are conductors of electricity. We have found out that metals make good conductors and help our bulbs to light up. 
Image result for school council
 
We had the difficult choice of electing a school councillor for our class. 
Thank you to those brave children who stepped forward to deliver their pitch.
 
It was very close, but our new councillors for 4F this year are:
Alfie Knight 
and
Isabella Hayes.
 
Well done! We know you will do an excellent job this year. 
 
 
 
R.E - People

As part of our R.E topic, we are looking at family trees. Today, we asked our peers about their families and they responded to our questions. We found out that some of the children in our class have relatives who live in other countries such as Canada and America!

Joseph and Faye have been orally practising their SPaG skills by looking at how we use commas in a list. This has helped to prepare them to write their sentences in their books. Great teamwork! 
 
Image result for collective worship
 
Our very first class Collective Worship. We have been thinking about special people in our families but we also need to remember that we are special people also.

 

Listen to this scripture which tells the story of when God called the prophet Jeremiah:

 

A reading from the book of Jeremiah.

The Lord said to me, “I chose you before I gave you life, and before you were born I selected you to be a prophet to the nations.”

I answered, “Sovereign Lord, I don’t know how to speak; I am too young.”

But the Lord said to me, “Do not say that you are too young, but go to the people I send you to, and tell them everything I command you to say. Do not be afraid of them, for I will be with you to protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!”

The Word of the Lord.

(Thanks be to God.)

(Jeremiah 1: 4-8)
