Birch- Year 4 2019 - 2020

Mr Newman

A big welcome to Birch Year 4 class webpage!


Mr Newman is the class teacher and on Wednesday afternoons Mr Ellinson will be teaching the class. Mrs Green and Miss Cooke will be the teaching assistants this year offering support whenever it is needed.

A few things to be aware of:


English and Maths homework will alternate every week. Homework will be given out on Fridays and due back in the following Tuesday. A selection of spellings will be given out on a weekly basis.


Regular reading is a skill for children to develop. In school, we teach children to read and interpret a variety of texts frequently. Children are expected to read at home four times a week and have their reading records signed by an adult. In my opinion, regular reading is a vital key to unlocking children’s success in Literacy so reading widely outside of school will be greatly appreciated.

Physical Education

During this term, PE will take place on Thursdays. Please ensure all children have the school PE kit in school throughout the week and appropriate swimwear on Tuesdays.

 Forest School 

Throughout Spring 1, children in Year 4 will take part in Forest School with Mr Ellinson. In order to work outside, the children need to be well prepared, as the only conditions which will cause us to stay inside are high winds and thunderstorms. It would be helpful if they could come to school on Tuesdays, dressed appropriately for the weather that day. This means they do not need to be in school uniform on Tuesdays whilst doing Forest School. Please make sure the children are dressed in clothes in which they can get muddy and dirty. All clothes should be clearly labelled and wellies/boots put in a bag.


If there are any queries, questions or problems please feel free to talk to any of the Year 4 team at the start or end of the school day.


Here is to a happy academic school year!
