Pupils across Years 3 and 4 have had a great start to the year and are looking forward to the year ahead.  It has been a pleasure to see how motivated they all are to learn.  We are focused on our value of aspiration in our pursuit to be masters of our learning.  This term we will continue to develop our understanding of place value, addition and subtraction strategies, times table and writing and literary devices whilst also exploring the topic ‘Potions’. Thank you for your continued support.
