St Andrew's:

Welcome to a new year at St Joseph's with exciting learning opportunities ahead.  This page provides a glance at the learning journey your children will be on.

Teaching Team:

Miss Mate will be teaching on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons.  Mr Farmer will teach on Wednesday mornings, Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Lamb will be in class every morning during the week.

The children will be participating in a Dance module for PE on Tuesday mornings, which will link to our new topic - Roaming Romans! Children will need to come to school in their uniform and bring their PE kit to to change into. 

The children in St Andrews' will start their swimming sessions on Friday afternoons in the Spring term. The children can arrive to school in their PE tracksuit kit on Fridays for swimming. 

All curriculum details are in the half-termly newsletter on this page.

Weekly each child will receive:
Maths Toolkit - to be handed in on Monday.
Spelling List - a test will be given on Wednesdays.

The children will be provided 2 books weekly, which need to be handed in on Monday.  Please can they bring their reading books daily as they may be reading to an adult.
In addition, this term our Class Author is Michael Morpurgo.  Children will be given a term to read his books where upon they will then use their knowledge to write settings and provided character descritions.  This provides an opportunbity for children to read a lengthy piece of fiction and for you to share the joy of reading with the children.

Times Tables:
This year the children in Year 4 will sit an external test on their tables knowledge.  To help with their learning we are having a weekly tables test in class for all children.  The school has provided Times Tables Rockstars to explore their tables in a fun and enjoyable way.  Usernames and passwords will be provuided to the children to access this resource both at school and at home. 

Mr Farmer, Miss Mate and Mrs Lamb
Y3/4 Statutory Spellings

These are the Year 3 and 4 statutory spellings that the children are recommended to know by the end of Year 4.

Cliffe Castle Trip

The children went to Cliffe Castle to explore their topic of rocks. This involved a workshop where they identified and observed rocks and fossils. They also grouped rocks into classifications and explored the uses of rocks. The children then explored the grounds and uses of rocks in the local environment. Finally, they examined artifacts within the museum.


This is a selection of some of our learning environments in the classroom, the children are particularly proud of their topic work which is a mixture of history, science and art.

Hero Day

We dressed as people we are inspired by for the day and made posters to celebrate inspirational people we had learnt about.
