Year 4

Term 1 will continue to focus on Covid catch up, embedding the basic skills in reading, writing and maths to ensure the foundations of learning are rebuilt for the future.

In English, Year 4 will be studying the book 'Voices in the Park' by Anthony Browne: Voices in the Park uses story and imagery to tell the story of a shared space through the voices of four different characters. The differing perspectives of each very different character give a fascinating depth to this simple story which explores themes such as alienation and anger as well as friendship and hope.
