Birch- Year 4 2017 - 2018

Mr Newman

A big welcome to Birch Y4 class webpage!

Mr Newman is the class teacher and on Tuesdays Mrs Kelly will be teaching the class. We are very fortunate this year to have two fantastic teaching assistants as part of our team-Mrs Green and Miss Smith. They will offer learning 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.

Maths homework will be issued through Children will need to log in to access the homework and will be provided with instant feedback once completed.

Maths homework will be available from Thursdays. If your child is unable to access a computer at home, there will be a homework club on Friday lunchtimes. 


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 every night 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 Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

During Spring term children of Year 4 will take part in PE on Tuesday mornings. On Wednesday, Mr Ellinson will lead a morning Forest School session with the children focusing on outdoor learning.

Please ensure all children have appropriate clothing (full PE kit and outdoor clothes) on these days.


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.
