We are happy to welcome you to Year 4. We hope to encourage the children to take more responsibility for their learning and to develop greater independence as they move into their second year in Key Stage 2. We will continue to build on skills already learnt, as well as introduce new concepts throughout the year. We’ll also aim to have lots of fun along the way with some fantastic topics to study!
