Larch and Cedar

Hello and welcome back to another year at Brackenhill. We are very excited to welcome you all into Year 4! We have two classes called Cedar and Larch.

Meet the Team

Mrs Maskeen is the teacher in Larch class. Cedar class have two teachers that share the week. Miss Salim teaches Cedar on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning and Mrs Cockroft takes over and teaches Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.

Larch class also have Mr Smith and Mrs Din working with them and Cedar have Mrs Walker and Mrs Sheikh.

What can you do at home?

Each half term we will be handing out newsletters with information about all the exciting topics that the children will be learning about. We will also include homework opportunities and spelling lists for the half term. We love to see the work completed at home and can definitely see the benefits of homework in class. Also, as you may know, at the end of Year 4 your child will complete a statutory multiplication check to make sure they know all their times tables. In order to prepare for this at home you could practice all the times tables with your children. They can also use Times Table Rock Stars to practice and we set up regular battles between the children in school to compete in and have the chance to earn certificates.


Reading with and to your child has massive benefits for their development. Please make sure you are reading regularly with them – we recommend 10 minutes a day. Your child will alos have access to a website called Read Theory which allows them to complete comprehension style questions online. Usernames and passwords will be sent home.
