Welcome to 4C from Miss Carter and Miss Lewthwaite. We are a class of 34 kind, hard-working and helpful children. So far, we have made an excellent start to Year 4 and we are enjoying our new topic Burps, Bottoms and Bile. Our current class novel is Demon Dentist, by David Walliams.

In Maths, as well as learning new skills, we revisit and revise some skills we already know. We put these into practice with fun games or by understanding how to use them to solve problems.
