Eager Beavers 2018 - 2019

Mr Hunt

Welcome to Eager Beavers

Hello, my name is Mr. Hunt and I’m the teacher of Year 3 and Year 4 chidlren in Eager Beavers' Class.  Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs. Jones and Mrs Showering.  In Eager Beavers we aim to build upon the knowledge skills learned in Busy Bees.  Each half term we choose a new theme that interests the children.  We make sure that learning is as active as possible and that children always know their next steps of learning.

We manage this through the following:

  • Focus group teaching
  • Valuing each child

  • Class Size - 26

  • Learning outside the classroom

  • Teaching Assistants - Mrs. Jones and Mrs Showering

  • Activities are differentiated to meet the needs of each learner.

Class News

This half-term, the topic in Eager Beavers is ‘Sparks Might Fly!'.  In Literacy, we will be reading The Firework Maker's Daughter by Phillip Pullman.  We will be acting out parts of the story and considering how certain characters are feeling as we go through it.  In Science, we will be learning about Electricity.  We will be learning about electrical conductors and insulators and we will be constructing our own electrical circuits containing buzzers, motors and bulbs.  Afterwards we will be creating a game for children in Key Stage 1 that incorporates an electrical circuit.  Our P.E. this half term is Invasion Games so please provide outdoor P.E. kits.  Please have a look through the news and blog section in the coming weeks to see what the children have been doing.

Reading – 4 times each week for 10 minutes and written in their reading record

Mathematics/Literacy Homework – Homework given out every Friday which alternates between Mathematics and Literacy.  Occasionally, I also set online homework on www.activelearnprimary.co.uk or on www.spag.com.  All children have their own personal login details for these websites.

Homework should be completed and handed in by the following Wednesday.

Spelling Test – Eager Beavers have a spelling test every Tuesday and new spellings to learn are given out at the end of the test to be learnt for the following week.
