Mrs Cockings' email    j.cockings@simonstone.lancs.sch.uk

Welcome to Class 4! We are a class of 36 inspiring individuals, learning together with confidence and achieving our very best. Taught by Mrs Cockings and supported by Mrs Webster, we learn and connect through a vibrant curriculum; a topic based approach that forges links to our local, national and global communities. We fulfil our dreams through exploring extra curricular activities, taking part in trips and visits and by embracing the creative subjects. Class 4 is an exciting place to learn and we approach challenges with faith and character. We enjoy collecting Emerald Power and we ALL have a school responsibility that we take pride in. Our favorite weekly events are: music with Mr Galea, class worship, Wild Welly Wednesday, Mucky Maths and PE with Mrs Topham! Everyday we nurture our friendships and enrich our life's journey through our class Christian Value - Justice.

Our Christian Value is JUSTICE - Psalm 33:4 - 5 For the word of the Lord is right, and all his work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

Our chosen hymn to support our class value is 'Here I am, Lord.'

We believe this hymn supports our willingness to do good and our dedication to follow God's will - 'I will go Lord, if you lead me.'

We've started the new term with courage and motivation - We are daring to dream big, supporting national events, actively using our prayer space, establishing our high standards in writing and starting each day with justice and pride! Take a look...

Online Safety Powerpoint May 2021

Tower Wood May 2021 

In May this year, we were very fortunate to attend Tower Wood, Lake Windermere, for 4 nights. We were the first school to visit since the pandemic - how lucky! We spent 4 nights and 5 days enjoying the Lake district; flourishing outdoors in God's world. We kayaked, paddle boarded, hiked and canoed... to name just a few of the activities. We also became more independent and nurtured our friendships. Throughout this experience we worked together to achieve our best and we  truly fulfilled our dreams. See the below link to find out more...
