 Autumn 2 Message from Miss Bamber

Hello again from myself and the Year 4 team of Mrs Douglas, Mrs Bishop and Mr Wildhood. We are delighted to be starting another half term and looking forward to our new topics and the learning it involves. We are getting to know the children really well now and hope they feel the same about ourselves so we can help them move forward in their learning.
