Welcome to Year 4!

In Year 4, we learn the purpose of classroom expectations and develop the idea that our classrooms are a community with the common purpose of learning, growing and becoming friends.

We are respectful, responsible, kind and know how to stay safe.

Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility and we will all do our best to ensure that each pupil has a safe and motivating learning experience. However, we cannot do this without the help of you, the parents, and the children. We are partners in the learning process. Together - we respect, we learn, we achieve!

Autumn 1 I am Warrior (History - Romans)
Autumn 2 Burps, Bottoms and Bile (Science - Human Body)
Spring 1 Playlist  (Music and Sound)
Spring 2 Potions (Science - materials))
Summer 1 Blue Abyss (Science - Underwater Habitats)
