Year 4 News

Year 4 have just begun a science topic all about Teeth and Eating. We were very lucky to have a visit from a dentist to start off the topic. The children had plenty of questions and found out all about our different sorts of teeth and their individual jobs. We also found out the correct way to clean our teeth. 

If you have any questions or would like any further information about the curriculum or how you can further support your child's learning at home then please speak to your child's class teacher.  

If you would like any copies of the documents on this page, the school office will be happy to print them for you.
