Welcome to Year 4

Hello and welcome to class 4. This is a very important year for your daughters, as they will grow in self-confidence and become independent, reflective learners.

The curriculum in Year 4 is designed to be challenging and enjoyable. It not only meets the requirements of the National Curriculum, but also goes further in supporting the girls to become confident speakers, analytical thinkers and creative problem-solvers.

- Mrs Shervillie-Payne, Year 4 Teacher
