Welcome to Year 4
Our Gospel Value
Our class Gospel value is Faith. We believe that if we put our faith in God and each other, great things can be achieved. During the school year, we think about the times in our lives when our faith may be tested including having faith in our own ability. We recognise that it can be difficult to keep faith and acknowledge that sometimes Jesus found this challenging during his time on Earth. “Anything is possible for anyone who has faith.”
Our Class Charity
Throughout the year we think about, fundraise and promote our class charity Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity. This charity was started in 2015 to provide aid and support the ever-increasing number of refugees fleeing their home countries through either war, persecution, or other reasons. The charity works alongside other agencies and makes regular trips to Calais and Greece to distribute sorted, donated items of clothing, essential supplies and other necessary items to those in need. Donated items that they cannot send are sold and the money raised is used to further support the charity. This relates directly to our Gospel value of Faith. These people who are supported and helped by the generosity of the charity, have not only lost all their physical belongings, but also their homes and possibly their faith for the future.
