Year 4 Overview

Curriculum Overview

 

The curriculum overview is designed to keep you up to date with what your child is currently learning about in school and help you to support your child's learning.

 

There are a number of ways parents can support their child's education; supporting them with their homework is key in helping children become more independent learners as they get older as well as supporting the learning that takes place in school.

 

Please be aware that the curriculum is subject to change.
