About Us

Fir - Year 4

Welcome to Fir Class.

Our class teachers are Mrs King on Mondays and Tuesdays, and Mrs Inwood on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. They are supported by Mrs Bell, Mrs Bowyer (am) and Miss Edwards (pm). 

Main Topics and Trips for 2023/2024

This year, Fir Class will learn about The Stone Age, The Vikings and The Egyptians. You will find more information about how each topic is covered in our curriculum maps, which are at the bottom of this page. 

Our trips and visitors for the year will be The Horniman Museum, Bromley Vue and The Chocolate Museum.

Our weekly timetable can be found at the bottom of the page, however it may change due to special events or changes in the calender.

Physical Education (PE)

Our PE days are every Monday and Thursday, with an additional Lacrosse lesson on a Wednesday, delivered by our specialist coaches. 

Your child needs to come into school wearing their PE kit, which consists of a plain t-shirt, plain joggers/shorts and a plain jumper. The children can wear their Poverest house coloured t-shirt for PE. Trainers are also allowed. Your child will stay in their PE kit for the whole day.  

Homework

Homework will be set every Friday, and will consist of a Mathletics task/s, set of spelling words (written and on Spelling Shed) and a writing task. Please return the homework on Thursday so it can be checked. 

Reading and Reading Records

We expect your child to read every day. Your child's reading record must be brought in on Friday to be checked by Mrs Inwood, Mrs Bell or Mrs Bowyer. Reading is such an important part of your child's development so please prioritise this task. 

Our Class Rewards

We have many rewards in Fir Class, which consists of; class dojo points, raffle tickets which are for a weekly prize draw Golden Globes, extra play and certificates every Friday.
