Welcome to 4G


Hello, my name is Mr Gallagher and I am the class teacher in 4G.


Firstly, welcome to our class page and I hope you are as ready as I am for an extremely exciting and busy year! In our classroom, we are very fortunate to be supported by fantastic teaching assistants; Mr Leyland from Monday to Friday and Mrs Longbottom on Wednesday afternoons. In addition, we also have the luxury of being taught specialist subjects by the brilliant Miss Fort.


Our topic this term will be There's No Place Like Home. Please see the curriculum cloud for more information.


Children, prepare yourselves for lots of hard work and to learn new things every day. Most importantly, don’t forget to bring those smiles into school so you can take them home with you!


I look forward to seeing you bright and early, every morning.


Important Information

  • Reading books will be taken home every day and the reading record is to be signed by an adult with accompanying comments. Please encourage your child to read as much as possible at home as the impact on their school work and progress is hugely significant!
  • On Tuesday afternoons, we will have our PE lesson. Please make sure your child has a full PE kit each week, including: pumps, a white t-shirt and black shorts which are all clearly labelled with their name.
  • Homework and spellings will be set every Friday and returned the following Wednesday at the latest.
  • Swimming will take place every Thursday from the 8th of September 2016. Please ensure your children have appropriate swimming equipment such as a costume, a towel, swimming caps etc. Children with must have a bobble to tie their hair if it will effect their swimming and if your child requires goggles to swim then please discuss this with the office.


Please keep checking this page as it will be updated regularly with information and news about what our class are up to each term. In addition to this page we will be using Class Dojo with which the children can create an avatar and monitor their own progress through the year. 


Please visit our Class Dojo page to track your child's progress and to receive updates and news via 


If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to come and ask me.
