In years 3 and 4, the National Curriculum is presented through a thematic and subjective activities. We follow 'Cornerstones' themes, rotating every 4 years. Our intention is to offer a rich provision for all that is at the forefront, providing memorable experiences to every learner. The learners have an opportunity to attend a trip once a term to spark their enthusiasm when possible. During years 3 and 4, your child will study the following subjects: 

Welsh, English, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Religious Studies, Geography, History, Physical Education, Personal and Social Education, Art and  Music.
