Birch- Year 4 2018 - 2019

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 will be the teaching assistant 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 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 Fridays.

Please ensure all children have appropriate clothing on these days.

Forest School

We are very lucky to have Forest School this half term. Forest School sessions develop independence and curiosity through outdoor learning.

Forest School will take place on Tuesday afternoons.

Please ensure all children wear appropriate clothing for these sessions.


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!

Mr Newman
