We would like to take this chance to welcome you and your child to Year 4 and to introduce the team. Year 4 is made up of two classes, Adders and Badgers. The teachers are Mrs Cara Croke (LKS2 Team Leader), Mrs Emily Scozzi and Mr Simon Phipps. Supporting us in the classroom, we have 2 wonderful Teaching Assistants: Ms Rose and Mrs Duffett. We also have support from the SSC from Mrs Funnell.

Over the year, your child will continue to be encouraged to become more independent and to take ownership of their own education. Throughout Year 4, we will focus on helping your child reach the standard required for the end of Lower Key Stage 2 and help them complete the new Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check. We strongly believe that, by working together, we can help ensure that your child will reach their full potential.
