About St. Francis Class

 

St. Francis class is a mixed class of Year 3 and Year 4 children, who are split for Maths and English teaching in the morning, but have all other curriculum based lessons together. They are taught by Mrs Evans and Mrs Commins.

 

 

Our Class Saint

Our class is named after St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. He was born over 800 years ago in a little town in Italy. One of the first things children do in St. Francis class is to find out about him, and why he is still remembered today.

What will we be learning?

This term we have a really busy curriculum planned!

We teach on a 2 year rolling cycle and ensure that the experiences that the children have are rich and exciting; it is our aim for the children to experience both excellence and fun.

 Home Learning

 

We hope that our homework activities act as a signpost to support your child's learning further at home; time spent consolidating key learning at home can support children with their progress and understanding.

In Years 3 and 4, homework will be set on a Thursday to be returned on a Monday. Whenever possible, it will be marked with the children in class to address any misconceptions in understanding.

From time to time, additional research tasks may be set, but we will inform you of these through class dojo.
