Mrs Winter and Mrs Quilliam welcome you to Year 4!!
Mrs Little has joined the year 4 team this year and is looking forward to helping the children in all aspects of their learning.
In Year 4 we learn about a wide variety of topics that excite and interest the children. They are becoming ever more confident and independent and can take greater control over their own learning.
The children are encouraged to talk about the things they excel at and things they are trying hard to get better at. This way the children progress well at their own level.
Year 4 is a fun, bright and safe environment where the children are happy to learn.
