Welcome to Otters' class page on our school website.


Here you will be able to see our exciting learning activities that we get up to with Mrs Phillips and Mrs Oldman. 


Our current topic is called 'Welcome to our world'.

Each class at St. Patrick’s has a class saint that we learn about throughout the year. We talk about our Saint regularly and encourage the children to learn, talk and ask questions about their Saint. Each Saint has a Feast Day, where we celebrate their lives and what they did in order to become a Saint.

In Otters, our class saint is Saint Martin de Porres. St. Martin de Porres was a lay member of the Dominican order who lived in Peru. He is the patron saint of mixed-race people and all those seeking racial harmony. St. Martin de Porres’ feast day is the 3rd of November.

Godly Play

Godly Play is an amazing tool to help enhance the spiritual growth of our children at St Patricks. Over the last few years we have been building up our own set of resources and some of the staff have been on training so that we can deliver Godly Play sessions in class.

We are now training up our Y5 Prayer Warriors who have begun sharing Godly Play stories in Otters...

Victorian Day

During the Autumn term, we studied how things change with time and had a special Victorian Day.




This term we have been looking at the seven continents, the different countries we come from and the capital cities of these countries.

Dr Seuss Day 2021

For the very first time at St Patrick's, we are celebrating the birthday of Dr Seuss, creator of the Cat in the Hat and Fox in Socks.

Here are some interesting characters that appeared in our class.

Since January 2021, half of the children have been learning remotely at home and half have been at school. We thought about what we would like to do once the lockdown ends.

Today 4th March was World Book Day. We had a go at creating a book blanket in class and then finding:

- a book we wanted to read and share with a friend;

- a book that we wanted to recommend to another child;

- a book that we didn't want to read and had to explain to our partner why not.
