Year 4 – St Therese of Lisieux

Welcome to Year 4 - St Therese of Lisieux


Our Class Saint is St. Therese of Lisieux, Patron Saint of the Missions: ‘Little Flower’. St. Therese’s feast day is October 1, which is her “birthday in heaven” (the day after the anniversary of her death, September 30).



  • Her name is sometimes spelled “Thérèse,” “Theresa,” and “Therese”.
  • She was known for her “Little Way“, which was based on Proverbs 9:4 “Whosoever is a little one, let him come to me”.
  • Also known as the “Little Flower” because she did not see herself as elegant as a rose or a lily, but rather as a small wildflower.
  • She was also called “St. Therese Of The Child Jesus” because she had a big devotion to the child Jesus. 
  • She was a Carmelite nun.
  • Her parents, Zelie and Martin, are also Saints- canonized in 2015.
  • She invented sacrifice beads.
  • On her death bed, she said “After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses. I will spend my heaven doing good upon earth. I will raise up a mighty host of little saints. My mission is to make God loved…” Miracles of St. Therese are often associate with the appearance of roses or the aroma of roses.


Prayer of St Therese Of Lisieux

May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Let this presence settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and everyone of us.

This page will be continually updated with homework, news and information so do come back and check on it weekly.




Maths homework will be set on a Wednesday and to be completed by the following Monday.

You have been provided with a homework book in which to do your homework. You do not need a printer to complete the activities. Do not write out the questions, question numbers are sufficient. Where a question requires it, drawing a table or a number line helps to develop your skills. We will not expect them to be perfect, all that we ask is that you use a ruler and try your best. Please remember to bring your homework book into school on the Monday so that we can mark the work and then have it returned to you by the Wednesday.


Spellings and Reading

Your spellings will be given to you on a Thursday and the spelling test will take place on the following Thursday. You will also have a Reading journal in which to carry out activities alongside your daily reading.
