Hello and welcome to Year 4.
Our Year 4 Team: Miss Ansell, Miss Meneely, Mrs Kelly, Miss Brown, Miss Qasem and Miss Walsh.
Our ethos is learning whilst having fun and understanding that making mistakes is perfectly normal; as long as we learn from them!
Information for Parents

Miss Meneely’s class has PE every Tuesday.
Miss Ansell’s class has PE every Tuesday
Please try and read with your child every night. Really focus on asking questions about their book as this will help them with their reading comprehension.
Our main push this year in Y4 will be times tables knowledge and rapidity. Practising weekly tables and enjoying times tables rockstars (login details can be found inside home reading record) will support you and your child with learning this. Please use the link below for an excellent example of Y4 expectation.
Finally, if there are any questions or concerns please feel free to speak to any of us before or after the school day.
