Welcome to the Year 4 class page. Our teacher is Mr Platt. Miss Hazelden is our teaching assistant. We hope you enjoy looking at all of our learning below.
We hope you all sign up for our Marvellous Me App. We would love to keep you posted about how your child is doing in the school day. We can send you a message to praise your child for something amazing they have done. You have been given a unique user number to start using Marvellous Me!
PE will take place every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on those days. We do provide your children with coloured PE tops that stay in school, but you are more than welcome to buy your child their own that they can take home. The house colours are:
-Green (St Patrick)
-Blue (St Andrew)
-Red (St George)
-Yellow (St David)
Expectations at Holy Spirit
-Be on time every day for school.

PATHS is a key part of our school curriculum.
PATHS stands for Promoting Alternative THinking Strategies.
It empowers all children to develop the fundamental social and emotional learning skills, which will enable them to make positive choices throughout life. It facilitates the development of self-control, emotional awareness and interpersonal problem-solving skills.
We have introduced the concept of compliments and how we feel when we receive them.
Most of the time when we get a compliment, it makes us feel happy, proud and important. These are all comfortable feelings. But sometimes getting a compliment can make us feel shy or embarrassed or even angry. Those are uncomfortable feelings. Most of the time, though, compliments help people to feel good.
Throughout the week, we will pick a 'pupil of the day' to give compliments to. The pupil chosen to receive them will also be encouraged to give themselves a compliment too - though this may feel a little uncomfortable sometimes. This is all aimed at boosting our self-esteem and promoting a positive view of ourselves.
Try to encourage your child to use the 'Three steps for calming down' and the 'Control signal poster' if they become angry or feel uncomfortable at home too. Always encourage them to follow the three Fair Play Rules also - consistency is key! Have a look at some of our PATHS posters and displays in Year 4:
