Year 3 & 4

Welcome to Year 3 & 4

 

Message from the class teacher

“Achievement is largely the product of steadily raising one’s level of aspiration and expectation.”

In Year 3 and 4, we work hard to develop our independence skills and build on the knowledge we have learnt in KS1. We endeavour to develop our confidence, knowledge and skills to prepare us for a future world and realise the high aspirations we have for ourselves our understanding of the potential we have.
