22/11/19:  Star of the Week - Riley!              Pride of the Week - Louie!

Welcome to Year 4's page

Mr Harris and Mrs Williamson are the adults working in Year 4 on a daily basis.

Mrs Ackroyd will work in Year 4 on a Wednesday afternoon.


This Term's theme:

Children will be learning about how the Anglo Saxons have impacted the local area and how it has changed over time. They will link this to their science work on animals and changing environments. Children will also consider how our local area is different from another when looking at our stories from other cultures.
