Class Teacher - Mr Ackland

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Hayter

Mrs Tucker will be teaching the class on a Wednesday and a Thursday afternoon.


Should you wish to contact me about your child, please catch me during drop off and pick up times (If something quick), or do so via my email address


Meet the Teacher

Our Y4 Beech class 'Meet the Teacher' meeting will be on Friday 8th September @ 2.30pm. I hope that you will find the information useful and feel better equipt to support your child's learning after the meeting. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please let Mrs Hyde or myself know so I can make sure you are provided with a quick summary of the points covered.


Please Note that there will be no PE during the first week of term due to the 'Meet the Teacher' sessions which will be taking place in the hall.



Class Information

Extra information:

  • PE days will be on a Tuesday and Friday afternoons (unless affected by weather or other events in school)
  • Homework, which will either be on paper or using an internet based platform such as Mathletics will be set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday
  • In addition to their weekly Homework, it is expected that children will read everyday at home. This can be independently but reading with an adult on a regular basis is still very important for pupils in UKS2. Reading Diaries will be checked on a Monday. 



At the beginning of each spelling unit, a note will come home in Reading diaries which will state the spelling rule being focussed on in school as well as a word bank that supports children to practise using the rule. Children will be expected to complete additional research to build their word bank and further their understaning of the rule. At the end of each 'unit' we will then have a spelling challenge where children will be asked to apply their knowledge. (These spelling challenges will not always take place on the same day as some units will be longer or shorter than others.)
