Welcome to Class 4 - Summer Term 2019
WELCOME BACK Class 4 - I hope you had a fun and relaxing Easter break and didn't eat too many chocolate eggs!
We have another busy term ahead with lots of new and exciting things to learn and also an action-packed residential trip, so I hope you are feeling recharged and ready to learn.
This term our topic is The Stone Age.
