Year 4

Welcome to Jane Goodall Class

This year, the Year 4 class have been named after the renowned scientist and conservationist Dr Jane Goodall. We will be investigating the ground-breaking discoveries Jane Goodall made when researching chimpanzee behaviour in Africa. There will be plenty of opportunities throughout the year to learn about her conservation work and the institute she set up and how we as a class can help.
