Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Mrs Chumbley and Mrs Mennie are the class teachers and Mrs Hopkins is the teaching assistant.

Year 4 is a very busy year where will be continuing developing a range of skills and knowledge and discovering and learning lots of exciting new things.  We will also work towards becoming more independent learners.

This year we will cover a variety of skills, knowledge and understanding including the following topics:

  • The Amazon Rainforest
  • The Ancient Egyptians
  • The Anglo-Saxons

We will create clay Rainforest tiles and Egyptian tomb paintings in art.

In Year 4 we will work very hard but also have lots of fun learning together.
