I am Miss Danzey and I believe I have met most parents by now and look forward to meeting everyone else as time goes on.

We also have Ms Stephenson in the class as our teaching assistant.

In Year 4 we ask our children to be more independent and take responsibility for changing their own books but we still ask them to read every day and with an adult as often as possible.

Thank you for your understanding and support and I look forward to working with you all over the course of the year.
