Welcome back!


It is lovely to welcome all the children into year 4. They have all grown so much!

The children have all settled in beautifully and are working hard. We have a very busy term ahead moving forward with all aspects of the curriculum. 

We will be investigating The River Mersey and why it is so important to Liverpool. We will be visiting The Beatles Museum and the waterfront. We will be reliving the music of The Beatles and the 1960's.

If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Year 4 Staff.
