Year 4 – Team Inspiration

Team Inspiration Introduction:-


Welcome to Team Inspiration, 


We are very excited to welcome you all back into our school! As always, we are making sure that you all feel comfortable settling back into the school. You will be able to learn in a safe, caring and fun environment.


We will be spending the first two weeks settling back in; learning the new expectations and understanding what our team name actually means. Our inspirational person, who links to our Team name, is Michelle Obama. (Pictured above.) She is a very interesting woman who has made great changes in her community and globally. Michelle has worked hard through her life to be the best she can be! She aspired to be a lawyer when she was younger. Through hard work and determination, Michelle achieved her goal. Michelle has many strings to her bow: mother, wife, chairing charities, helping the community, lawyer, first black first lady to the President of the United States, and many more. 

We will be adding photos and videos of all the fun activities Team Inspiration will be taking part in. This page will also showcase the amazing work that the children will be completing. The website will be updated regularly so please keep checking back for the latest work. :-)


The adults working with Year 4 this year are: Miss Boden, Mrs Radford, Ms Street and Mrs Newton. Please feel free to contact us or book an appointment to ask us any questions you may have.


Miss Boden :-)
