Welcome to Austen Year 4 class

I hope that you all had a wonderful, relaxing summer and feel ready for the new school year. I am very excited to be taking on the challenge of being part of a new school team.  I am looking forward to the teaching and fabulous learning that will be going on in my class.  The Teaching Assistant in Austen Class is Miss Da Costa.

The Year 4 classroom is situated on the second floor.  The classroom is an excellent size and we have plenty of room to move around without treading on each other’s toes. Throughout the year you will be invited to a Shared Morning , which will be an opportunity for you to visit Austen Class. How exciting!

Your child will be provided with a yellow ‘Link Folder’ which will continue to work as an effective way of communicating on a day to day basis – bridging a link between home and school.

Kind Regards

The Year 4 Team
