Welcome to our Class 4 Page!
Hope you all had a fantastic Summer and I’m really looking forward to meeting you and your parents. My name is Mrs Venables and I will be your child’s Year Four teacher this academic year. It is my goal to provide all students with an educationally challenging, yet fun, experience in our classroom to achieve the best we can in a caring learning environment.
Along with all of us at Ashwood, I have high expectations for all people and I will do all that I can to help achieve those expectations. We are absolutely committed to achieving our best with a stimulating learning environment and diverse and exciting lessons! We are coming out of difficult times and I want to do all I can to support you through this.
And although the challenges we face are real and there may be barriers I will do everything I can to create a positive learning experience. If there is anything you want to know or discuss please do not hesitate in getting in touch.
Meet your Teachers
Hello! My name is Mr Conway and I am your Class Teacher.
It is my goal to provide all students with an educationally challenging, yet fun, experience in our classroom. In our classroom this year, we are joined by Mrs Clarkson and Mrs Richardson. You are in very safe hands and we will do all that we can to help children succeed this year. We can use our energy to strengthen our commitment to learning and success. If there is anything you want to know or discuss please do not hesitate in getting in touch. I can’t wait to meet you!
I’ve been at Ashwood for a year now after teaching previously at Bingley and in Sheffield. I’ve had many years experience in teaching KS2 especially – from Y3 right up to Y6. I love teaching most subjects – as long as I can reach students and try to inject energy and passion into learning! Outside school, I love cycling and own six bikes (although Mrs Conway keeps trying to stick them in the cellar) and I get out on them as much as I can. I also love many sports, but especially football. Sport is my passion and I massively support AS. Roma! Our family has a pug, two cats called Mourinho and Fudge and two scary snails called Ant and Dec.
Hello! My name is Mrs Robertson and I am your Teaching Assistant.
I have been at Ashwood Primary School for 13 years (I know, it’s a long time!) I live at home with Mr Robertson and have a grown-up daughter, Laura who lives in Scotland. My interests include watching my favourite football team, Leeds United, reading, listening to music and at the moment I’m addicted to Happy Colour, an app on my tablet.
Inspiring today’s children for tomorrow’s world is what we are all about!
In our class, we will be working hard although there will be loads of fun activities…
I would like to share our classroom rules policies with you following ideas taken from the Ashwood Way

P.E. will be twice a week and we would expect you to have a P.E. kit for indoor and outdoor kit and be ready for action!
We hope to be using Class Dojo to communicate with you and highlight all your great work and learning achievements. More information will follow on this shortly…
