Ash Class (Year 4)

Welcome to Ash Class!


My name is Mrs Dowler, and I will be teaching year 4 this year, with the support of our amazing teaching assistant, Mrs Hall. You will know me as Miss Hallam, however over the summer holidays I got married so my name has changed to Mrs Dowler.

I am really looking forward to this year and am excited about getting to know you all, having fun and teaching you different exciting topics. In Ash Class, we are kind and caring, we respect each other and our possessions. This ensures everyone can achieve their potential and support each other, even when things are tricky. I believe the most important part of learning is to have a go and not be afraid to make a mistake! Making mistakes is part of learning and helps us develop our understanding. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes and this is okay.


With our comfortable and supportive classroom atmosphere, our aim will be to ensure every child is happy and smiles and laughs at least once a day – but hopefully all day, every day!

A named PE kit should be in school every day and daily reading at home is strongly encouraged. In the classroom, we have a display which shows the progression the children are making with their home reading and rewards are presented at regular milestones. Please listen to your child reading regularly and ensure this is recorded in the back of their journal (orange homework book).


Spellings and Maths homework will be set weekly and due in on a Friday.

Please check back on this page throughout the year as there will be updates of our memorable school year. Ash Class is a friendly, happy, and caring place to be and I am thrilled to be the class teacher.
