4A's Class Page

Welcome to 4A 

I'm Mr Armbrister and I am delighted I have the opportunity to teach your child this year. I really enjoy teaching year 4 and I know that your children are going to be a fabulous 4A class.


Here's a little more you may or may not know about me...


I have been a teacher at Irk Valley for a little over 4 years and have mainly worked in Year 4 during that time. I have loved every minute of my time here - it really is the best school in the world! When I'm not teaching, I enjoy playing golf, visiting National Trust sites, eating out and most importantly; watching Manchester United.  


This year is going to be an excellent year. We will be learning lots of new things, revising things we learned in Year 2 and 3 as well as going swimming. My main aim as 4A's teacher is to ensure your child is safe, happy and making excellent progress at school. 


I am looking forward to working together with you to support your child in Year 4. If you have any questions, please do contact me.




Mr Armbrister
