First of all let me thank you for taking the time to read and explore the year 4 class page, I do hope that you have all had a marvellous summer and I know that we will have a fabulous year together.
Our subject focus for this half-term is Burps, Bottoms and Bile - it is a science based topic, however, it incorporates a cross-curricular approach to learning. Thus, it will form the nucleus for all subjects this half term.
As you are already aware the wider school community plays a vital role at St Patrick's and I have already had various parents/ guardians come to me with items they have at home which we can use in school! For this we are so very thankful, as it does make such a difference.
So, if you do have anything what at all could benefit the children's learning, in regards to this topic, then please do come and see me.
