Nightingales – Year 4

Welcome to Nightingales Class!


Hello, I am Mrs Penney and I am thrilled to be teaching Year 4 this year. I am also the Music and History lead this year. I love to sing and play the piano in my spare time as well as spend lots of time with my family. 


I am really excited about all of our topics this year and hopefully a bit more 'normality'!

In Year 4 our topics we will cover are 

Autumn 1- 'Fantastic France' 

Autumn 2- 'Ancient Greece'

Spring 1- 'What did the Romans do for us?'

Spring 2- 'Life as a raindrop'

Summer 1-' The history of the Fens'

Summer 2- 'Explorers'
