Anne Frank Class


Welcome to our class' page. I am Mr McGarrity and I am lucky enough to be teaching the year 4 class this year.

We cover a variety of topics throughout the year in all areas of the curriculum.

I thoroughly enjoy reading books and always encourage pupils within my class to do the same...especially with great expression in their voices! Personally, I believe reading significantly helps to develop writing and that is why we ask our pupils to read every night with an adult. This approach will help foster a love of reading within our children.

PE is on Thursday. Please can you make sure all PE kits are in school!

Homework is given out on a Friday and due in on Wednesday.  However, if there are any difficulties found over the weekend, let me know by Monday so we can help before Wednesday. There is a spelling and multiplication test every Friday and spellings are given out on a Monday.

I am a very approachable teacher and have an open door so if there is anything you would like to ask or you just want to say hello then please find me!

During this year, I hope we can work as a team to ensure your child has an enjoyable time in Year 4 and makes the best possible progress.
