Welcome to Magpies' class page. We are an enthusiastic class who enjoy our learning. As part of learning, we share our ideas and are respectful of each others' opinions. We persevere when facing challenges and celebrate our own and others' successes. 



Teachers in the class

My name is Mrs Ruston and I am the class teacher. This is my second year at Bradley Barton but my 13th year of teaching. I have many years experience in teaching year 4 and really enjoy working in this year group. I am the phase leader for year 3 and 4 and lead maths across the school. I really enjoy spending time outside with my family and dogs and then getting lost in a good book!

The LSA in the class is Miss Gibbs and she works across both year 4 classes. She will spend time supporting in lessons or doing interventions with individual or small groups of children.


Class commitments 

At the start of the year, Magpies created a set of class commitments to follow to ensure that we have a safe, fun and fantastic year. We agreed on the following:

-Listen and follow instructions every time.

-Be kind and look after one another ensuring we include everyone.

-Try our very best in all that we do.

- My sure that we keep safe by following the school rules.

-Keep the classroom tidy and organised. 

-Focus on our learning and be determined to complete it.

-Persevere even when we find things difficult.

-Respect ourselves, others and the classroom.

-Be proud of ours and others achievements. 

-Enjoy our learning and have fun!



This year, along with all other classes, we will be continuing to use Class Dojo. This will allow you to see what dojo points have been earned by your child as well as being notifying about missing homework or PE kits. I will continue to post photos of learning, messages or reminders on the class story page. Finally, the messenger section allows you to pass any messages onto me directly and vice versa. I will endeavour to respond to you within 2 working days and will check the messages during the school day. If you have an urgent message, then please contact the school office.
