Year 4

Year 4 Class Staffing


Welcome to Year 4!

Class Teacher: Miss Downie

Classroom support: Mrs Stacey-Jones

Class Saint


Our Class Saint is St Vincent de Paul and his saint day is 27th September

One thing that was very important for St Vincent de Paul was following the example of Jesus by caring for those who were poor or sick.  We look to him as an example for us to follow.


Our topic this half term is based around local History and Geography studies. We will continue to look at the history of our local area with a main focus on the pottery industry. We will visit Gladstone Pottery Museum to learn more about the past and use different techniques to create our own pottery piece.
