Class 4

Mr Wright

Welcome to Class 4

Welcome, we are class 4 and enjoying being back to school with Mr Wright. We are learning about engineering by studying the Romans who were master architects and engineers. We can’t wait to design and build aqueducts in the way that the Romans did. Also, we are enjoying our Religious Education where we are reflecting about our community and how we can help it to grow using Jesus’ lessons. Please come along and join us!
