Welcome to Year 4

Welcome to 4EB and 4CY’s blog. Here you will be able to read about and see all the exciting things that the classes have been up to over the year. We hope you enjoy looking through all the children’s hard work and can see how much fun they are having.

 

Meet the Teachers

Our Year 4 team, Mr Lewis (Teacher), Miss Byrne (Teacher) Miss Rowan and Mrs Hopkins (Teaching Assistant). Any of our year 4 team will be happy to talk to you about your child’s needs and interests.
