Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

We’re Year 3 and our class name is Chestnut.  Our team consists of our teacher Mrs Harrison and our teaching assistant Mr Frost. 

Year 4 is a busy and important year group. As the children are half way through KS2, we will really focus on developing your children’s greater independence. Children have lots of opportunities within and beyond the school day to really develop a range of skills. We expect children to take much greater responsibility for their own learning and love it when they do! Their enthusiasm for learning and sharing what they discover is wonderful to see.
