In Y4, we pride ourselves on the quality and breadth of the curriculum.  Our Y4 curriculum is designed to serve the needs of all pupils, using a variety of approaches and stimuli, including visits, visitors, theme days and engaging activities.  We are committed to making learning enjoyable in a safe environment protected from harm.
