Newtown Community Primary School
'Newtown Primary School is a Community Primary School and we take the "Community" aspect of our title very seriously. Our children, their families and extended families are at the heart of everything we do.'

Ash Class (Year 4)

Welcome to Ash Class!

My name is Miss Hallam and I will be teaching year 4 this year, with the support of our lovely teaching assistant, Mrs Hall. Our class name will be Ash Class.

 

I am looking forward to this year and am excited to get to know you all and having lots of fun together. In Ash Class we are kind and caring, respect each other and our possessions to ensure each child is able to try their best, achieve to their potential and support each other even when things are tricky. We will be willing to try different activities and not be afraid to make mistakes as we know this helps us learn and develops our understanding. With this 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 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 as there will be regular 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.
