Year 4

Year 4

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.
