Year 1 (Class 4)

Welcome to Class 4!

Miss Rutherford

I would like to wish everyone in Class 4 a warm welcome to our class page.

I look forward to all the fun activities, adventures and learning we will be exploring together in the coming weeks.

If you need to speak to me or have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. 


At St Michael and All Angels School we are a Christian Community where everybody is  valued and recognised  for their unique contribution. We provide a child-centred education in a positive learning environment in which all children may reach their full potential. The Gospel values of love and respect are at the heart of our partnership with parents and carers, Governors, the parish and wider community.

In Class 4 we have been learning about what our mission statement means to us… How can we live it out?

Christian Community

In Class 4, we gather together to say our daily prayers. 

We plan and take part in daily Collective Worship.

We explore RE through Come and See by listening to scripture, singing songs and talking about stories from the Bible.

We love and care for one another.

Valued and Recognised for our Unique Contributions

We recognise that we are valued by celebrating our achievements together in class and as a school community through the Gold Award.

We cherish each other’s unique talents and strengths.

Child Centred Education

Through our topics, we discuss what we think, know and wonder about.  We talk about and plan our learning journey.

We take part in WOW events to bring our curriculum to life.

Positive Learning Environment

We have a wonderful classroom where we can learn, share and have fun!

We love to display work that we are proud of.

Gospel Values of Love and Respect

We follow our class and school rules by recognising good and bad choices.

We live in the light of Jesus by loving and caring for everything God created.

Partnership with Parents, Carers, Governors, the Parish and Wider Community.

We enjoy sharing our celebrations with Parents and Carers.

We celebrate at church with our Parish Family.

Helping others in the Wider Community and supporting local charities.
