Hello and welcome to the Year 4 page. In Year 4 we aim to inspire learning by working as a team and understanding that success is achieved through hard work. We welcome all into our class and want to make all feel welcome. Below is an outline of what we will be covering this term. We also have displayed some pictures of work we have done in class. If you ever had any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to make an appointment to see me with the Main Office. Many thanks,
