Mrs Day is our teacher and Mrs Neale and they are supported by Mrs Mitton and Mrs Potts. Year 4 is a fantastic year when we are really settling in to life in KS2 (Juniors!). We have a lot of fun and throw ourselves into learning with a ‘can do’ attitude. We our partnered with a St Peter’s CE School in Rochdale who visit us and we visit them in the year. This year we will be staying overnight in Rochdale to compare and contrast the area with our own town.
Mrs Potts works to support children with specific needs within the class, delivering a range of interventions.
Mr Watson provides support through the school support our children. During the lunch time session he offers sports opportunities for our children in the Infants and Juniors.
I am married to Steve and have two children, Ellie and Isaac. In my spare time I love being outdoors and enjoy mountain biking, running and skiing. I love working with children as no two days are ever the same and you get to see the children grow and develop.

In Year 4 we have been studying the Maya of Central America. They lived approximately a thousand years ago.
