Class Four

Welcome to Class 4

We are a class of Year 5 and 6 children and our teacher is Mrs Lightley. We work very hard in our class but it is also lots of fun and fantastic visits and visitors make learning in Class 4 even more special. We hope you enjoy looking at our page and finding out about some of the things we are learning this year.
