We would like to welcome both you and your child to Year 4.

We are looking forward to working with you to ensure that your child achieves their very best academically and spiritually whilst also developing their wider gifts and talents.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please feel free to see me at the end of the day.

Feast Day - 8 February.

St. Josephine Bakhita was born in Sudan, Africa, in 1869. When she was a child, she was captured and sold as a slave and suffered harsh treatment. Bakhita was taken to Italy and put into service as a nanny. She was sent to live with the Canossian Sisters in Venice. From the sisters she learned about God and Christianity. In time, she asked to be baptised, and took the name Josephine. At the age of 41, Josephine felt God calling her to become one of the sisters. The Canossian Sisters accepted her into their community.

For twenty-five years, Sister Josephine carried out humble services in the convent. She cooked, sewed, took care of the chapel and answered the door. During World War I, Sister Josephine helped to care for the wounded. She became known for her kindness and goodness. She was a source of comfort and encouragement to everyone who came to her in need.

She was canonized on October 1, 2000, by Pope John Paul II.

St. Josephine is the patron saint of the Christian Sudanese people who still suffer persecution for their faith. "St. Josephine Bakhita – Pray for us."

In God's will,

there is great peace.

We look to Jesus as our guide in praying and learning. Here you will see some of the wonderful experiences we have shared together in Year 4.

Year Four made their own ear gongs to explore how sound travels. 

During Geography Passport day, we enjoyed exploring the art of Mehndi. 

We worked together to create our own piece of 60s music inspired by 'The Beatles'. 


In RE, we did a conscience alley way when looking at the story of 'The sacrifice of Isaac'. 

Mr. McConnell came and spoke to us about his special vocation and even shared his personal mantra with us. 


When we visited Iceland for Geography Passport Day, we got to make our own Icelandic lanterns. 

In RE, we were looking at different styles of writing found in the Bible. We looked the meaning of different proverbs, psalms and stories and thought carefully about which style of writing we would use to talk to God through.
