Welcome to Year 4!
Here we become ruthless Roman warriors; vicious Vikings, raiding and trading what we can, dive into the Blue Abyss and take a road trip down Route 66 in the US of A. In our class we have a fantastic group of staff who are enthusiastic and passionate about developing the very best out of every individual. We are led by Miss Browne (crocheter and dog lover), with wonderful support from Mrs White (artistic genius) and Mrs Gleeson (music aficionado). As a collective, our aim is to facilitate every child in reaching their full potential, both academically and personally. Our curriculum is designed to allow everyone to flourish and develop their skills, from critical reading in English to investigative research in History, imaginative creativity in Art and developing their scientific skills and knowledge.
Every week we have specialist teachers visit our class in both French and Music to teach their subject. Whilst during the summer term, we participate in a residential trip to Winmarleigh Hall, a PGL centre to develop key skills and improve independence.

I believe it is very important to develop strong links between school and home, we are working in partnership to ensure that your child has the best possible experience in school and can make the most of the wide range of opportunities available. However, if you have any concerns about your child’s education or welfare please do not hesitate to contact me either by letter or by telephoning the school office and I will get back to you as soon as possible, or you can see me in person after school.
Reading is very important, and we hope that you will enjoy reading with your child at least three times every week. Reading regularly will improve:
• Reading attainment and writing ability;
• Text comprehension and grammar;
• Attitudes to reading;
• Self-confidence as a reader;
• Pleasure in reading in later life;
• General knowledge;
• Understanding of other cultures;
• Community participation;
• Insight into human nature and decision-making.
