Welcome to Year 4!
Mrs Womack is the class teacher supported by Mrs Beaney. We are a friendly and hard working class and so far we have had a productive year filled with lots of fun experiences and learning opportunities. We are building on our independent skills and thinking about our responsibilities as learners and important members of the school.
