Our Class Saint
St. Isidore of Sevilla
“If a man wants to be always in God's company, he must pray regularly and read regularly. When we pray, we talk to God; when we read, God talks to us.”
The children almost unanimously decided upon St. Isidore of Sevilla as our class saint this year for 2 main reasons. The first is that he is the patron saint of internet, and strived for knowledge, just as we do in this class, while also being known as the last scholar of the ancient world, meaning that he compiled academic resources for people, to help them understand the wider world and the word of God.
The quest for knowledge and thirst to learn more in the presence of God resonated with many children in the class.
Feast Day: April 4th 2021. We will celebrate this in school on Wednesday 31st March.
Our class text this half term is ‘Trash’ by Andy Mulligan. We will be exploring the characters of the book and using the text to inspire some of our writing in Literacy. Will will be creating adventure stories based upon the action in the story. Coupled with this, the children will also be analyzing stories from other cultures, comparing them to stories from cultures we are familiar with. Finally we will look at non-fiction writing, linking in our work on the text, and on our unit of Sustainability, to biographies on Greta Thunberg, while also using what we have learned to apply to different areas of punctuation and Grammar.
Unit E: Baptism
Unit G – Lent
Unit H – Holy Week
Mental Maths/Times Tables
Times tables and mental maths skills are vital for your child’s progress in maths. These should be practised regularly. Your child will know which times table / mental maths challenge they are currently working on.
