St James

Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

In Year 4 we have some exciting and hands on activities planned for the term ahead. Your children are now beginning to develop some independence and are more willing to share their own ideas and opinions. This year we will continue to nurture and encourage your children to grow in confidence and independence, beginning the journey to become self-assured young adults.

Our topic for this half term is Burps, Bottoms and Bile. We will be learning all about teeth and the digestive system, investigating why we have different types of teeth and what happens to our food once we have swallowed it.
