BEECH CLASS - YEAR  FOUR

Welcome to our class page! Here you can find lots of information related to our class. As we move through the school year, you will also be able to take a look at some of our fantastic work, as part of our creative curriculum. 

We pride ourselves on the positive relationships we have with the children in the class, and their parents/carers. We want the children in our class to thrive both personally and academically, and we want parents/carers to know that we will work together to do the best for their child.

If you would like to find out more about your child’s learning, or discuss any concerns you have, please do not hesitate to talk to a member of the Year 4 team (or leave a message with the main office and we will get back to you).

Thank you for your support.
