Welcome to Beech Tree - Miss Humphreys

Welcome to Year 4 - Beech Tree Class.

I hope you have all had a peaceful summer and are looking forward to returning to school, we certainly can not wait to welcome you back.

On this page, you will find some useful information about the term ahead and any key messages that you need to be aware of. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see our class Twitter feed and link to Google Classroom. We love to use Twitter to share some of the excellent things going on in Beech Tree Class and will use Google Classroom to support learning at home - spellings, homework and useful documents will be uploaded and made available on there. 

We are set to have a great year and have some really exciting things planned and lots of new things to learn about. I'm really looking forward to meeting you and your families over the coming term and it is important that we work in partnership to ensure the very best for your children. If you have any queries or need some support, please do not hesitate speak to me at the end of the day, phone or arrange an appointment.
