Welcome to Darwin class!
Each term there will be a short presentation for each year group to help explain what your children will be learning this term, share the class timetable, discuss homework and answer any questions you may have. The presentation will last no more than 20 minutes and will be straight after school in your child's classroom.
To help parents who have siblings in different years, each year group will have a different after school session where ever possible.

Thursday 20th September - Year 4
