Welcome to Year 4! In Year 4, children continue on their journey through KS2, learning and growing each and every day. As a class, we promote resilience, positive thinking and high aspirations, ensuring every child works hard to ensure they progress and achieve their full potential.
Here, you can find an overview of the Year 4 Curriculum. You can use this information to discuss with your child what they have learned and continue to support their learning at home.
