Welcome to Year 4

The teacher in Class 4 is Mr Bown with Mr Richardson supporting in the morning and Mr Elliott, a student teacher, also with us this term from Monday to Thursday.

I do update the class activities page regularly, (see left), so don't forget to have a look there. It also helps you to know what they've been up to, even if they say 'Nothing', the next time you ask them what they've done all day!

Please follow our Twitter feed @Firbeck Primary for snapshots of just some of the incredible learning happening this year both inside the classroom and out and about on exciting trips!

  • Our enquiry topic this Autumn is based upon Romans - and their impact on Britain. We will also be investigating digestion and food webs.

A welcome letter has been sent home to all parents; however, a copy can be found in 'Related Downloads' section of this page..


As a reminder, children must line up on the playground from 8.45. Morning break will be from 10:20-10:35, so please can you either provide your child with a healthy mid-morning snack or money for toast and/or drink.


PE will take place every Thursday and Friday afternoon. Please ensure that children have their PE kits in school on all days as PE sessions may take place during none scheduled days. PE kits consist of black shorts, a white top (no logo please), suitable trainers or pumps and all jewelry must be removed.

Children should have a pair of plain black jogging bottoms, shorts or leggings and a plain white t-shirt and a plain coloured fleece if you are told they are doing outdoor sessions.

It is simpler to send your child's PE kit in at the start of term and keep it in school - that way they'll always have it ready.

Any child wearing earrings needs to remove them, or be provided with a note from parents/careers as to why they can not be removed - along with some tape / plasters to cover them over with during the PE session in order to avoid the risk of injury.


Year 4 homework will primarily be based around Reading, Spellings and Times Tables - more information can be found here.


Class 4 are following the same behaviour management system as the rest of school - where children start each new day as a 'Perfect Day' and work towards becoming a 'VIP'.

In addition, Class 4 will be sharing that progress through the use of 'Class Dojo' - individual login details have been sent out. Once you register, you can track their progress and also send/ receive messages to me should you need to.


In order for us to monitor and inform you of reading, homework tasks and school events, each child has been issued with a personal planner. It is an easy and effective way for us to communicate. Please sign the Home/School agreement. Please check your child’s planner on a regular basis.

Children must look after their planners because if they lose/damage them, a new one will be issued at a cost of £3.

Any further questions?

If you have any further questions or worries, please do not hesitate to contact me. You can catch me at the end of the day, as I dismiss your child if you would like to have a word face to face or arrange a time if you would like to have a more detailed chat about something.
