Dear Year 4,

We are so excited to see you all back at school continuing your Pilgrim journey in year 4. We are going to make sure that this year is going to be full of fun and enjoyment while learning about new and exciting topics. Although we hope that we can start the new school year in a traditional way and without any major restrictions, there will be some little changes you might need to be aware of. We will make sure that every one of you is happy with your new classroom as well as your new teachers. The year 4 staff are ready and very excited to be your guiding lights!

We wish you all the best luck in year 4!
