Year 4

Miss Grey (Teacher) / Mrs Hall (ARMs) / Miss Robinson (ARMs)

Welcome

Welcome to Year 4! I am delighted to be joining Swalwell Primary School and supporting your child on their learning journey. In Year 4 we are becoming independent learners through questioning, investigating and creating.

I hope that through mutual trust and respect everyday will be stimulating, rewarding and memorable.
